The forecasting of time-series data plays an important role in various domains. It is of significance in theory and application to improve prediction accuracy of the time-series data. With the progress in the study of time-series, time-series forecasting model becomes more complicated, and consequently great concern has been drawn to the techniques in designing the forecasting model. A modeling method which is easy to use by engineers and may generate good results is in urgent need. In this paper, a gradient-boost AR ensemble learning algorithm (AREL) is put forward. The effectiveness of AREL is assessed by theoretical analyses, and it is demonstrated that this method can build a strong predictive model by assembling a set of AR models. In order to avoid fitting exactly any single training example, an insensitive loss function is introduced in the AREL algorithm, and accordingly the influence of random noise is reduced. To further enhance the capability of AREL algorithm for non-stationary time-series, improve the robustness of algorithm, discourage overfitting, and reduce sensitivity of algorithm to parameter settings, a weighted kNN prediction method based on AREL algorithm is presented. The results of numerical testing on real data demonstrate that the proposed modeling method and prediction method are effective.
