An artificial intelligence system that correctly predicted the last three U.S. presidential elections puts Republican nominee Donald Trump ahead of Democrat rival Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House.
MogIA was developed by Sanjiv Rai, founder of Indian start-up Genic.ai. It takes in 20 million data points from public platforms including Google, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube in the U.S. and then analyzes the information to create predictions.
The AI system was created in 2004, so it has been getting smarter all the time. It had already correctly predicted the results of the Democratic and Republican Primaries.
Data such as engagement with tweets or Facebook Live videos have been taken into account. The result is that Trump has overtaken the engagement numbers of Barack Obama’s peak in 2008 — the year he was elected president — by 25 percent.
Rai said that his AI system shows that the candidate in each election who had leading engagement data ended up winning the election.
“If Trump loses, it will defy the data trend for the first time in the last 12 years since Internet engagement began in full earnest,” Rai wrote in a report sent to CNBC.
Currently most national polls put Clinton and the Democrats ahead by a strong margin. Rai said his data shows that Clinton should not get complacent.
But the entrepreneur admitted that there were limitations to the data in that sentiment around social media posts is difficult for the system to analyze. Just because somebody engages with a Trump tweet, it doesn’t mean that they support him. Also there are currently more people on social media than there were in the three previous presidential elections.
“If you look at the primaries, in the primaries, there were immense amounts of negative conversations that happen with regards to Trump. However, when these conversations started picking up pace, in the final days, it meant a huge game opening for Trump and he won the primaries with a good margin,” Rai told CNBC in a phone interview.
You can polish that turd all you like my friend but the electoral map is all but out of reach for the egomaniac.
As much as I like this the outcome of Bundy Oregon trial was better news, except them tazing and arresting Bundys lawyer.
If Trump were to be elected, the White House would be in desperate need of access to some sort of artificial intelligence.
The vote is on November 8th, not today Einstein.
Donald Trump’s IQ is 156. Einstein’s IQ was 160.
Hillary Against Trump: Globalism Versus Americanism
See whole article.
@David Wilson, #5:
If that’s the case, why does he sound like an idiot? You should read a transcript of any of his rally speeches. They’re just an endless repetition of right-wing political memes, interspersed with simplistic references to the media event of the moment.
@Greg: Perhaps your perceptions are merely skewed by your liberalism. You think Hillary is a viable candidate and Obama an effective President, therefore your judgement has been inverted by false propaganda. Pity.
@July 4th American:
Why are today’s so-called conservatives always so condescending?
Regardless, what could possibly change in the course of a few days to make a Trump licker quit being a Trump or for for those that recognize him as a bullying, racist, sexist, lying con man out to scam the country to fill his own pockets (which is consistent with his entire life) to suddenly change heart and decide to vote for the shyster?
I understand Trump lickers have a difficult time with things like science and facts and in this case, math but the electoral road for Trump just isn’t there. And that’s what really really matters-regardless of the huge crowds of klansmen and neo-Nazis who follow him from town to town.
@Ajay42302: Amazing, you think 20 to 30thousand KKK and neo-nazis follow him from rally to rally, Yet Hillary cant get enough to fill a small gym, and most of those are trying to get some type of extra-credit points from a liberal professor. Bernie has stopped campaigning with her, because of her basement dwellers comment. Go listen to Michael Moores speech on giving them the biggest FU and you might see its just regular folks who were happy going to a 40 hr a week job with benies ,until the democrats screwed that over with their policies. Now they can work 2- 30 hr per week jobs that pay less with no benefits. When did unemployed coal and factory workers become so vile in your eyes AJay? Very few if any are following Trump around your opinion of everyday Americans going to a political rally is disgusting, bigoted and racist, or is it they are entitled and only have the right to YOUR opinion , thats the attitude of the progressive socialist thieves.
