## How To Measure Time Series Similarity in Python

In this tutorial, we’ll explore some practical techniques to measure the similarity between time series data in Python using the most popular distance measures. To make sure that the results are not affected by noise or irrelevant factors, we’ll apply techniques such as scaling, detrending, and smoothing. Once the data is preprocessed, we can use simple distance measures like Pearson correlation and Euclidean distance to measure the similarity of two aligned time series....
