The Technical Exorcist

An interesting computer sim.

According to The Register, The US Department of Defense is creating a simulation of the world to model how various countries and peoples will react to various “stressors”—acts of God, Wars, etc. Reading the article, it sounds like a very interesting concept. I doubt it will be very accurate, though. When you’re working on that scale, everything is so complex I don’t see how the program could harvest sufficient information to be even close to correct.
