The Finite-Interval Forecasting Engine (FIFE) is a versatile tool that can forecast events impacting specific persons, military units, organizations, or objects over a variable time horizon. FIFE combines a flexible suite of machine learning algorithms with large amounts of data to predict when meaningful events will occur. Leaders can leverage this capability to predict future outcomes for various complex processes to improve the readiness, lethality, and efficiency of U.S. Armed Forces.
