When it comes to potential futures and unintended consequences, inter-dependencies between economic, environmental and social impacts have never been quantified, let alone anticipated ๐˜ฅ๐˜บ๐˜ฏ๐˜ข๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜บ.

In practice, policy decisions depend on wide-ranging scenarios and assumptions across multiple domains and disciplines. The problem is that the underlying data, models and assumptions are developed in isolation from each other and often reflect stakeholder bias. Model inputs are typically static and out of date. Assumptions affect decisions: Ultimately, decisions affect ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ต๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด.

It provides a collaborative environment for modelling complex cascading and cumulative impacts across economic, environmental and social domains.

Sentient Hubs help #decisionmakers visualise and begin to take control of complex inter-dependencies.

Itโ€™s time to actualise our new understanding of how interactions between dynamic factors like climatechange, pandemics and war shape outcomes for society and the environment.

The integration of independent data, models and platforms through Sentient Hubs eliminates manual interventions and provides unparalleled insights. Work that currently takes specialists months to perform can now be executed via automated and highly customisable โ€˜workflow-wizardsโ€™.
