Prediction is everywhere in the modern world, making up essential aspects of almost every part of our lives. From checking the weather on your phone, knowing when you will arrive to work, to longer term predictions of the success of your stock portfolio and your personal health goals. This section of the course examines five areas of modern prediction: Earth, Health, Wealth, Space, and the Future of the Future -- which looks at the driving forces currently changing our own conceptions of prediction, including artificial intelligence and machine learning -- to give learners a picture of the state of modern predictive methodologies.
