Re: Markov models

"They use collected data to figure out how likely you are to go from A to B, C, or D but ignore the path you took to reach A"

There's nothing preventing someone writing a markov model algorithm that takes account of more than one hop: eg probability of going from A to D via B or C. Sure, the tree would start to expand exponentially but it is possible and you wouldn't need to store that many hops to approach decent prediction.
