Artificial Intelligence Computer Makes Surprise Election Prediction

Just a week ago the possibility that Donald Trump could win the election would have been met with questions of insanity.

But the FBI’s re-openened investigation has turned things on their head. And now an artificial intelligence is picking the most unlikely result for next weeks election.

According to Business Insider:

The polls have consistently showed Hillary Clinton with a lead over Donald Trump in recent weeks, but an artificial intelligence system has a different prediction for the outcome of the presidential election.

The system, called MogIA, uses 20 million data points from online platforms like Google, YouTube, and Twitter to come up with its predictions, according to CNBC. MogIA correctly predicted the past three presidential elections as well as the Democratic and Republican primaries.

“While most algorithms suffer from programmers/developer’s biases, MoglA aims at learning from her environment, developing her own rules at the policy layer and develop expert systems without discarding any data,” Sanjiv Rai, the founder of Indian start-up Genic.ai who developed MogIA, told CNBC.
