  • Publication number: 20210049522
    Abstract: To improve a future prediction simulation technology in order to more accurately predict the future by enabling a mathematics expression and an operand numerical value to be appropriately corrected, a server executes, as a future prediction simulation apparatus, a future prediction simulation by using mathematics expression data and operand numerical data for specifying a mathematics expression and an operand numerical value, which are recorded in a server recorder and which are to be used in the future prediction simulation. The server includes an interpreting unit, a related information collecting unit, and a determining unit. The interpreting unit reads from the server recorder basis data, which is text data for specifying the basis used by the user to determine the mathematics expression and the operand numerical value, and generates interpretation data. The related information collecting unit collects related information related to the basis data by crawling the Internet using the interpretation data.
