# What are different time-series types?

I am having a time-series classification problem. I tried to using movingaverage and firstdifferences as two models to perform my classification. However, the results I am getting are pretty bad.

Therefore, I am thinking whether there are any other types of time-series data that I can use instead (i.e. instead of movingaverageandfirstdifferences`). If so please suggest me.

I am happy to provide more details if needed.

• I do not think these are classification models. How did you classify time series with them? – Richard Hardy Nov 28 '19 at 8:46
• @RichardHardy I use LSTMs to classify my timeseries :) – EmJ Nov 28 '19 at 22:16
• Why do you need moving averages or first differences then? Or are they a part of LSTM and you are wondering about the specification of LSTM? (Probably a stupid question since I am not all that familiar with LSTM.) – Richard Hardy Nov 29 '19 at 6:08
