Dan Steinberg, CEO of Salford Systems, writes on the future of Predictive Modeling (PM) industry
From the point of view of consumers of PM technology, it's much less important to think about what new methods or techniques might be coming up than to think in terms of how people are starting to leverage what's already been accomplished in the last 10 years. What has happened is so amazing it's certainly possible that people will look back on 1999 to 2010 as being as true golden age when it comes to methodology. In the last decade, one of things that has happened is new techniques that essentially leverage not just one model, but ensemble learning - involving possibly hundreds or thousands of models, no one of which is definitive. Each sheds a little bit of light on the results. That approach has been perfected. We're starting to see methods and data that should be brought together coming together. People are understanding that it's worth the effort to do it.
