Mark Anderson is the Chief Executive Officer of Pattern Computer, Inc. Mark has made a career of making accurate predictions using pattern discovery techniques. He accurately predicted the Global Financial Collapse of 2007-2008 as well as the Oil Price Collapse of 2014-2015, despite having no formal training in finance or economics.

He founded the Future in Review (FiRe) conference (www.futureinreview.com) - now in its 14th year - which the Economist has named “the best technology conference in the world.” Mark’s recent book, ‘The Pattern Future: Finding the World’s Great Secrets and Predicting the Future Using Pattern Discovery,’ describes how he has consistently made successful predictions across a wide variety of disciplines, and how others can employ his techniques.

Mark earned his bachelor and Masters in marine biology and biochemistry from Stanford University, and has conducted doctoral work in biochemical ecology at the University of British Columbia.
