Tribeca Rooftop, New York City
Institute for the Future is organizing the M4 Conference. The M Competitions have provided a wealth of practical information for improving the accuracy of forecasts and the correct assessment of uncertainty based on the findings of 100,000 series covering six application domains (macro, micro, demographic, industry, financial and others) and six time frequencies (yearly, quarterly, monthly, weekly, daily and hourly).
We invite you to attend the M4 Conference, which will elaborate on the findings of the M4 Competition, discuss their practical implications as well as how they can be used by businesses and other organizations in their effort to improve forecasting accuracy and correctly assess uncertainty.
The M4 Conference Program includes distinguished speakers from major software/technology companies (Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Uber and SAS) as well as known academics from top-level universities. It features the presentation of the three most accurate methods of the M4 Competition personally by their developers, who will also discuss how their methods can be implemented by others, as their code is available for free in GitHub.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb will deliver a keynote speech, discussing uncertainty in forecasting and Spyros Makridakis will present the major findings of the M4 Competition and discuss how organizations can benefit by such findings in order to improve the accuracy of their predictions and assess their uncertainty more realistically.
