We describe and evaluate methods for learning to forecast forthcoming events of interest from a corpus containing 22 years of news stories. We consider the examples of identi- fying significant increases in the likelihood of disease out- breaks, deaths, and riots in advance of the occurrence of these events in the world. We provide details of methods and studies, including the automated extraction and gener- alization of sequences of events from news corpora and mul- tiple web resources. We evaluate the predictive power of the approach on real-world events withheld from the system.
