Default Computer based statistical analysis of bloodlines

So it's fairly easy to get all the dogs and their lineage into a computer. hip/elbow data is largely available, and other tests like DM, coat genes, etc, are becoming commonplace. A computer, properly employed, could predict trends and recognize patterns in potential breedings a far more accurately than a human. After all, computers make most of the stock trades on all major exchanges with superior accuracy. I've been kicking around the idea of making such a system. Thoughts? Ideas for publicly available data sources?
