Dr. Sinha’s research, titled “Projections of Consumer Spending across Categories: The Power of Perceptions to Achieve Predictive Breakthrough”, was recently featured in Forbes. The research has set a new benchmark in forecasting consumer behavior, achieving an astonishing 99% accuracy in predicting consumer spending for various retail categories. This innovative research not only signifies a leap forward in the accuracy of predictive analytics but also provides businesses with an invaluable tool for navigating the uncertainties of the future.
