    The Revenant, a grisly tale of extreme survival and revenge starring Leonardo DiCaprio and directed by Alejandro Inarritu, is going to scoop up the main prize at the prestigious awards ceremony, they say.

    Well, given that the bookies have chalked up The Revenant as the clear favourite as well, this might not seem a very impressive feat of prediction.

    But Cognizant and Clarabridge – the tech firms in question – have reached their conclusions not by watching the films and applying artistic criticism, but simply by crunching data – lots of data
