Sandtable is a data science company that specialises in creating models of human behaviour. We use them to help organisations understand what might happen in the future and how they can best adapt to or influence that future. Our models are built using a technique called Agent Based Modelling (ABM). We bring together data and insight from a range of sources to create explicit representations of the populations we are trying to understand. They are not ‘black boxes’ – we are seeking to uncover and represent the underlying causal mechanisms that make people do what they do.
