The Mathematics of History

Another interesting perspective on trend analysis in history.  Yes it’s a TED talk, by Jean-Baptiste Michel, taped at the TED conference this February: The mathematics of history.

Not that this topic hasn’t been addressed in the past, but with the advent of BigData, and other powerful new computing models and paradigms, the analysis of the past and extending trends into a predicted future might be increasingly practical.  Hari Selden here we come!
