Ancient civilizations were very interested in predictions. If you read Greek and Roman mythologies, you may remember there were people called oracles who were blessed with the power of prophecy. People offered sacrifices to the gods so that the gods could speak through these divine individuals. Kings would make decisions based on what they were told by oracles. Oracles made predictions and people listened to them.
It’s a word we hear all the time with Einstein Analytics. Key decision makers can perform granular analysis of data through Einstein Analytics’ easy to use dashboards to derive actionable insights.
