BINNER, J.M., ELGER, T., NILSSON, B. and TEPPER, J.A., 2004. Tools for non-linear time series forecasting in economics - an empirical comparison of regime switching vector autoregressive models and recurrent neural networks. Advances in Economics: Applications of Artificial Intelligence in Finance and Economics (19), pp. 71-91. ISSN 0731-9053Full text not available from this repository.
The purpose of this study is to contrast the forecasting performance of two non-linear models, a regime-switching vector autoregressive model (RS-VAR) and a recurrent neu-ral network (RNN), to that of a linear benchmark VAR model. Our specific forecasting experiment is UK inflation and we utilize monthly data from 1969-2003. The RS-VAR and the RNN perform approximately on par over both monthly and annual forecast hori-zons. Both non-linear models perform significantly better than the VAR model. Keywords: Inflation forecasting, regime-switching vector autoregressive model, recurrent neural network.
