Speaker: Steph Stammel - Transurban Title: Managing uncertainty: statistics and econometrics as part of a multidisciplinary approach Abstract: Long range forecasting is difficult at the best of times. In current times, increasing sophistication is simply not enough to manage the high levels of uncertainty we face. At Transurban, our mission is to create and manage road transport solutions that serve our communities now â and in the future. To do this well, we need a detailed and long-term view of the cities we serve. Data science, statistics and econometric forecasting are an important part of this view of the future: but itâs not enough. Steph will talk about how an interdisciplinary approach in the Traffic Team at Transurban helps build a more detailed, robust view of our future cities.
