Dr. Kira Radinsky - she wrote an algorithm that takes old news and digests it to make future predictions (like the riots in Sudan, cholera outbreak in Cuba, increase in the price of wheat, and the list goes on).
In her words: “What I am trying to do is take all this data and construct models that attempt to predict future events.
And it worked. You’ve notched some impressive successes in prediction.
I always cite the Mark Twain adage, “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme.” So I say that in every event, even if it possesses characteristics that are unique to it, there exists some sort of pattern drawn from the past.”
