Counting the Future is a visual history of prediction; a collection of attempts to predict the future from data. It focuses specifically on the diagrammatic nature of statistical prediction and puts predictive diagrams in relation with each other through time, across disciplines and domains. The resulting epic meta-diagram aims to provide a new way to access the history of prediction: a subjective and incomplete map which invites multiple readings.
