After the Boston Marathon Bombing, a group of world-class experts in religion and computer science create cutting-edge simulations to predict and prevent religious radicalization and violence...but saving lives in the real world is harder than they thought.
- Show treatment
An expert crew of computer scientists and religion scholars embark on a three-year project to apply computer simulation and modeling to find solutions to worldwide humanitarian crises. Called to action by the Boston Marathon Bombing and increasing religious extremist terrorist attacks in North America and Europe, the scientists develop cutting edge technology at their headquarters in research centers in Boston and Virginia as well as at a Norwegian university. The team eventually travels to refugee camps in Lesvos, Greece to understand and simulate connections between religious extremism and the refugee crisis. They use the powerful modeling and simulation methodology to develop policy recommendations for predicting and preventing religious radicalization and violence.
