Predicting the weather is something human beings have been trying to do since we were planting seeds in the Stone Age. Human understanding of the weather and seasons guides when we plant and when we harvest; when we hunt and when store food for the winter; when we travel and when we stick close to home.

At some point, all of us have been frustrated by U.S. transportation systems: waiting on a subway platform for a late train; standing at the bus stop watching the next bus go cruising past without room for more passengers. In these situations, we’ve all asked, “Isn’t there a better way to do this?” Soon, there will be, and it is thanks in large part to data-driven innovations.
