  1. Dear Cultivate Labs,

    I found your website via the link “https://ohio.cultivateforecasts.com” which you sent to us students here at Ohio University (OU) and its really really fascinating. I am a Master of Science student at OU at Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering. I work with Artificial Neural Nets for making prediction models. My thesis work is in the area: “Creating a forecasting model using Statistical Techniques and Artificial neural networks to predict EQ-5D model indicators from World Bank Data, World Health Organization Data and United Nations Development Programme Data indicators, for Population Health Improvement”. As being passionate for excelling in the area of predictive modelling, I would love to be a part of a company which is totally committed to this area. Your project seems to amaze me and I would love to know what tool do you use at the back end for making predictions. Attached is my resume for your kind consideration along with a small ‘Thesis Insight Document’ to dwell into what I have been doing. Hope you like it. Thanks for your time and wish to meet you in the near future.

    With Regards,
