Not accurate at all

http://thenextweb.com/shareables/2016/11/18/big-data-predict-future/

This predictive world site is pretty cool, but mostly inaccurate.   It took some Facebook info and whatever else it could find , but if I need to go in and edit almost every category, it's kind of useless.  And even then it was so variable it's not funny.

If you change the salary from say $50 to $200 the life expectancy goes up 10+ years.  And they say money doesn't buy happiness.  Well according to the predictive site just making more money means living 10+ more years.

The emphasis on the program being computed shifts focus from implementation to specification: it allows us to ask questions about what computations are possible.Interesting article and some good insight. Worth a read. https://blog.acolyer.org/2019/03/06/keeping-calm-when-distributed-consistency-is-easy/
