## Chapter 7. Predicting the Dataset Behavior

Analyzing data is important to identify and understand inner dependencies. By examining the exchange rates statistics, we can trace how they grow or fall depending on the political, economic, psychological, and even informational events. These dependencies will subsequently help to determine the future rate value in case of repeated factors influence. So, data analysis often comes down to learning how to make predictions. However, you can predict not just numerical data. Mathematica has gone beyond the number fields long ago and handles audio, video, and text information as easily as numbers.

From this chapter, you will obtain the necessary knowledge to learn how to predict with Mathematica, such as the following:

Predicting the future values of sampling data

Intelligent picture processing and replicating style patterns

Predicting with the help of probability automaton model
