Science – understanding principles and fundamental laws of phenomena, or answering “why.”

Every human being leads our lives by predicting what will happen now and near future. We always have something curious about the future but often it is hard to know. Therefore, we developed methods for prediction based on science.

Thus far, we did not explore a science of prediction itself. Instead, prediction has been developed in each field separately. Fusing the prediction methods and finding what are common and different in different fields might lead to a new science of prediction. This is a grand challenge of this project.
