This strategic project aims to develop and apply new, more effective approaches to forecasting the future in the face of rapid change and growing technological opportunities. In particular, it is planned to significantly extend the range of quantitative and qualitative methods based on the use of various kinds of data.
The new approaches will be tested on a wide range of practically oriented predictive studies focused on various aspects and areas of life, the economy, and society.
HSE University’s background in scientific forecasting, its advanced research infrastructure (including the iFORA big data mining system and the university’s supercomputer) provide a unique basis for the successful implementation of this strategic project.
