N2 - Identifying the appropriate time series model to achieve good forecasting accuracy is a challenging task. We propose a novel algorithm that aims to mitigate the importance of model selection, while increasing accuracy. From the original time series, using temporal aggregation, multiple time series are constructed. These derivative series highlight different aspects of the original data, as temporal aggregation helps in strengthening or attenuating the signals of different time series components. In each series the appropriate exponential smoothing method is fitted and its respective time series components are forecasted.
