Data Driven Innovation: A predictive analysis, well explained

What A predictive analysis is? How does it work? Using data, statistical algorithms and machine learning techniques to identify the probability of future results based on historical data with the aim of going beyond understanding what happened to arrive at a better assessment of what will happen in the future.

Luciano Pietronero

Luciano Pietronero studied physics in Rome and was a research scientist at Xerox Research in Webster (1974) and Brown Boveri Research Center in Baden (CH) 1975-1983. He then moved to Univ. of Groningen (NL), as full professor of Condensed Matter Theory (1983-87). Since 1987 he is professor of Physics at the University of Rome "Sapienza”. Founder and director of the Institute for Complex Systems of CNR (2004-2014). Recently (2019) he was appointed president of the Enrico Fermi Research Center. Broad international experience in academic and industrial enviroments. The scientific activity is of both fundamental and applied nature, with a problem oriented interdisciplinary perspective. Development of novel and original views in most of the areas of activity. Leader of a generation of young scientists who are protagonists of the complexity scene internationally. In 2008 he received the Fermi Prize (highest award of the Italian Physical Society). Research interests Condensed Matter Theory; High-temperature superconductivity; Statistical Physics; Fractal Growth; Self-Organized-Criticality; Complex Systems and its interdisciplinary applications. Recent activity in Economic Fitness and Complexity for which he was appointed Senior Advisor of IFC-World Bank (2016). The Fitness method represents a scientific approach to fundamental economics and and as reported by Bloomberg Views: “New research has demonstrated that the "fitness" technique systematically outperforms standard methods, despite requiring much less data”.
