Looking for information on 'predicting the future' algorithm

I swear I watched a video of some Oxford academic from years ago that said he had some sort of way to predict the future through some sort of algorithm or something. Did I imagine that? I don't really believe that sort of thing is possible but love reading about it (well, don't believe so far). I seem to recall his future was very dark for us. Was it the guy who predicted the 88 year cycles maybe?

Sorry if I'm not making sense, the guy and his work are on the tip of my tongue and I can't find a good way to google without being way to general.

thanks!

2. There's lots of algorithms for predicting the future

Could you be more specific?

5. He multi tasks.

Like when he grew a beard--hair on his head AND his face.
I like to keep up with the predictions, especially the religious ones so I know when the world will end. This guy's stuff was cool because it was couched in fancy book learning talk, I liked it.

6. You may be thinking of 'The Code' hosted by Marcus du Sautoy

It's a three part series. Part 3 is about predictions.
