Researchers have developed software which could predict future events such as disease outbreak. The prototype software uses a combination of archive material from the New York Times and data from other websites, including Wikipedia. [1]

This is a truly innovative work. Finding a way to process all the data existing – and especially “not easily classified data” like news headlines – is the essence behind good science.

Pollution, deaths, "prediction models"...

A more holistic view of things is always better than any “specialized” research.
