6 GENERATIONS OF FORECASTING. Over the last decade, data related technologies have evolved at a crazy pace. Companies went from using technologies that were fundamentally based on mathematics, which had not changed that much since the 18th century, to Big Data oriented technology powered by Machine Learning and Deep Learning.

Logically a good technology assessment should build on well-done forecasting, and sound technology forecasting should include assessment of the downstream effects of changes in technology. The two forms of analysis use many of the same methods–trend extrapolation, expert opinion, modeling, scenarios, and so on [17].
