Imagine a fashion retailer already knows what colours, cuts, and sizes customers will prefer next season. Imagine that workers on the shop floor in a production line know when and why a machine will fail before it actually happens and the production flow interrupts. Imagine an insurance company which can precisely estimate the likelihood that a potential new insurance customer will cause significant car damages in the future. All this knowledge would help companies to make even today good decisions for the future. But how to predict the future?
