I have not received this edition yet, but I cannot wait to read the article. A machine that predicts the future? If enough people fall for that, value investors like me will make a mint.
- Researchers plan to build a computing system that would model the entire world to predict the future.
- The project would be powered by the enormous data streams now available to researchers.
- Yet models are not perfect; many researchers think they will never be able to capture the world’s complexities.
- A better knowledge machine may arise out of Web-like principles such as interconnection and argument.
