A Real-Life Matrix Decides The World’s Fate

Posted by on June 7th, 2010

Scientists at the Competence Center for Coping with Crises in Complex Socio-Economic Systems (CCSS) are using a supercomputer to simulate life on Earth with the aim of supplying the systems as virtual advisers to world leaders to consult in times of crisis.

The “Living Earth Simulator” project is using trends from social sites like Facebook and Second Life to¬† teach the computer how the world works. Hopefully the leaders of the world will allow for a 25% chance of trolling.
