    Nate Silver’s introduction to The Signal and the Noise offers up an intuitive definition of the split between prediction and forecast. Prediction is judgemental and accounts for future changes and opinions, whereas forecast is pure scientific fact and interpretation of the past events. Neither are anywhere close to perfectly predicting any scenario, but there are times where one produces a mostly accurate estimation of the future.
