About the Conference

The discipline of probability management represents uncertainties as arrays of auditable data called SIPs. It is being applied in many areas, from operational risk at power utilities to readiness modeling in defense to disaster preparedness in cities. The open SIPmath Standard is a platform agnostic approach to communicating uncertainty that can be used in anything from native Excel to cloud applications. Learn how the integration of SIPmath with Tom Keelin’s Metalog System for data driven simulation and Doug Hubbard’s HDR Random Number Framework is fueling a new generation of probability management applications.
