Description

Paul Parker, a reporter for The Providence Journal, takes a look at how reporters can use simulations to predict future conditions. For example, The Providence Journal used a computer model to simulate how people tried to escape the February 20, 2003 fire at The Station nightclub in West Warwick, RI, that killed 100 people. The simulation predicted how patrons were trapped deep inside the club at a bottleneck leading to the main exit. It also predicted everyone could have escaped alive if minor structural modifications had been done on the building.
