As an expert in both data science and decision science, he consulted world's largest companies with advancement of their prediction and decision models to anticipate the consequences of the potential actions in order to make better decision in an automated manner for sustainable development.

Dr Mosavi is involved in active contribution on developing techniques for generating predictive models that promotes sustainable development. With the aid of data sciences, the past events are to be analyzed in order to provide the vision about our future decisions and actions. With the aid of predictive models we will be able to study the potential effects of our behavior, he says. This would indeed provide the ability to develop and grow in a more sustainable direction. Dr Mosavi coins the term “predictive-decision model” what he believes in its extensive potential for transforming latest discoveries into a major innovation in decision science and prediction. He believes in the potential of artificial intelligence technologies of Big data, machine learning, internet of things (IoT), and deep learning to discover the greener ways of living.
