+ - Supercomputer predicts revolution->

Submitted by lecheiron
lecheiron writes: A study, based on millions of articles, charted deteriorating national sentiment ahead of the recent revolutions in Libya and Egypt.

While the analysis was carried out retrospectively, scientists say the same processes could be used to anticipate upcoming conflict.

The study's information was taken from a range of sources, then the information was analysed for two main types of information: mood — whether the article represented good news or bad news, and location — where events were happening and the location of other participants in the story.
