Time-series multistep prediction LSTM Model (Recursive prediction)

I can’t believe how long it took me to get an LSTM to work in PyTorch
Still I can’t believe I have not done my work in Pytorch though.

My final goal is make time-series prediction LSTM model

I created my custom dataset referenced by Understanding LSTM input
and make LSTM model using scheduled sampling - https://arxiv.org/abs/1506.03099
decay schedules is Linear method.

The problem is, rather than making multistep predictions, my process has been blocked from the training stage. I plotted the prediction value obtained from the training, the result was such a mess just a MESS.

I referenced many git hub codes including official torch github (https://github.com/pytorch/examples/tree/master/time_sequence_prediction, https://github.com/chickenbestlover/RNN-Time-series-Anomaly-Detection) to solve this problem and have seen a lot of topic related to LSTM, but I could not solve my problem. Even I sent an e-mail to the author of the git hub code, but he also said that he did not complete the multistep prediction for power demand dataset.

From http://kth.diva-portal.org/smash/record.jsf?pid=diva2%3A1149130&dswid=3859,
the Stateful LSTM method should be used because the dataset such as power demand has a long weekly cycle. So I tried various attempts to maintain the hidden state and cell state as 0 which means not to initialize it.

I’ve been on this for over a month and I’m so exhausted. I want to upload all the codes in my mind, but because it gets too long, I upload the code of the training part and the lstm model code first. In addition, if the other parts of code are needed, I can upload more. I need the help from anyone who know about lstm well.

for iteration, (X, y) in enumerate(dataloader):

    y_true = y_true.view(-1)

    y_pred, (hidden_out, cell_out) = self.lstm(lstm_input, (hidden_, cell_))
    lstm_out = y_pred

ANY help would be appreciated…Thanks…

Hi, I have a similar challenge, were You able to get further?
I would like to build a simple functionality similar to fv prophet for x steps ahead and with another regressor, but cant find any working examples with stable refeed prognosis back to LSTM…
Some examples start with encoder decoder, but I would like to try LSTM…
Just asked also in Forum for examples.
