The article goes on to say that they can figure out who is about to quit before they even know that their gonna quit.

We are truly on the brink of a brave new world. I don't fear it though because you can see it coming as technology and science advances.

This is pretty smart because you can stop people from leaving with this algorithm that will tell you the right time to give raises or promotions to keep people.

Remember about 15 or so years ago all the kids were playing Sim City and some other Sims (before the Sim people)? That had these algorithms that calculated the effect of certain things in the simulated city. overcrowding, not enough this or that or too much, and things would happen in the game, like riots and stuff. being kids, they tried every possible combination and watched the city burn down or whatever. it was very educational. so this kind of algorithm has been around for a long time, applied to varioius things. i applaud google for using it to keep their business thriving.
