Are computers better?

I am wondering whether therapists can predict whether a child recovers or not more accurately than a simple computer algorithm... I could feed the algorithm with information on the age of onset, gender, and possibly family history, and then it would make a guess. I need to think about this more carefully.

Computer koennen zumindest manchmal ganz praktisch sein. Ich sitze naemlich gerade an einem Terminal in Bangkok und gruesse Dich aus Suedostasien.
