Is “psychohistory” possible?qr.ae/86uFL
a bit of insight from john in comments:
Just to play Devil's Advocate, I'm going to respectfully disagree with the above. While the 2 previous answers present good, logical points, I always say: I don't care about the thousands of ways something can't be done, just the one that it can. However, I do agree that there is little chance of such a precise, over-arching algorithm per-se. Part of me figures that government think-tanks must do this on some scale, and if not, then they should have - so let us assume that we have their funds and resources.
