The article discusses a case in southern Mexico three years ago where the investigators found too many discrepancies in the testimony.
When they found trying to sort off the data too difficult, a group of programmers took on the challenge to create a program to sort it all out.
"The interactive platform, constructed by the research agency Forensic Architecture at Goldsmiths, University of London, and shared with The Intercept in advance of its public release, pulls from a voluminous body of investigations into the crime."
They have a link to the interactive platform (in Spanish but does have a translate to English button) at http://www.plataforma-ayotzinapa.org/.
While reading the article, I was reminded about a project begun by a former member (Brian, the n00b), but this particular platform looks a bit more dynamic than the one Brian was creating.
Anyway, after reading the article about the disappearance of 43 students, wondering about this thing's possible application the to JFK case, I read the comments.
The very first comment said "Would be nice to demonstrate the dots on the murder of JFK". So, I was wondering if such might be a viable tool and how we could get our hands on a copy of the platform, if indeed useful?
It could possibly be a showcase online to help explain to other researchers where the problems in the evidence are and help weed out the inconsistencies and outright lies. Personally, I think we have a pretty good handle on that but it might help educate others.

Good ideas don't belong in the Harvey and Lee forum. Polar opposites!
I agree, the tool could be very useful. Have emailed the author of the story.
I checked Brian's timeline site. Appears it is now defunct.
