I was trying to build a CNN model. I used time series data of daily temperature to predict if there is risk of an event, say bacteria growth. I calculated the descriptive statistics of the time series, ie. mean, variance, skewness, kurtosis etc for each observation and added them to input data.
Is CNN capable of extracting the effect of the descriptive statistics the label, meaning that adding these descriptive statistics features manually does not make a difference? (I will still try this later, but like to hear what you think about it). Thanks
