Stanford researchers thought the same idea could be applied to earthquakes, so they developed Fingerprint And Similarity Thresholding, or FAST. It searches through large databases of seismic activity looking for patterns that indicate an earthquake has taken place — including small events that don't register as earthquakes with conventional equipment.
These microquakes might not wake anyone up at night, but they could help scientists predict how often large quakes might occur and where they might strike.

I says I been living in this here Silicon Valley my whole life and I been hearing about earthquake predictatator methodology for most of that.
Not one got it right. Except that one guy. He predicted quakes based on how many road kill animals and lost pets there were. They laughed at him because he wunt tientific.
Whenever I ear about another xyz marvel prediction meter, us earthquake denizens go, uhuh (chuckle).
