Abstract:

A hybrid intelligent (HI) model, comprising a data pre-processing component and a HI forecaster, is developed to tackle the medium-term fashion sales forecasting problem. The HI forecaster adopts a novel learning algorithm- based neural network to generate initial sales forecasts and then uses a heuristic fine-tuning process to obtain more accurate forecasts. The learning algorithm integrates an improved harmony search algorithm and an extreme learning machine. Experiments based on real fashion retail data and public ...
