 IPS correctly predicted a major shift by the Iranian Leadership and the timing of this shift

In an opening address delivered at the Herzliya Conference in March 2013, professor Alex Mintz, head of the IPS, correctly predicted, based on decision theoretic analysis, a major shift in the Iranian leadership's policy on its nuclear program and the timing of this shift. Mintz presented a sophisticated Decision Support System for predicting the Iranian leadership decisions. He predicted that the election of a new President in Iran will enable the supreme leader of Iran to make a shift in policy to ease the economic sanctions, prevent or delay an Israeli attack and a potential confrontation with the US over Iran's nuclear program. Mintz claimed, based on his Applied Decision Analysis (ADA) procedure and methodology, that understanding the "cognitive algebra" of leaders of rival states and terrorist groups, is key to understanding and predicting their decisions.
