Predicting the future is all but impossible. Forecasting on the other hand involves taking the knowledge and data we have today and generating a data-driven hypothesis about future state.
We live in an age of disruption and disruptive technologies, many of which are of direct relevance to our industries. One example is Digital Twins, this technology theme delivers the possibility of near-real-time emulation of a live network of assets. This brings our physical networks into a fully digital environment, making possible things like scenario planning, machine learning and predictive AI.
Below are a selection of presentations from our recent Forecasting The Future event; these include thought provoking updates from some of our Clients, other Capita businesses and our own views on disruption.
