The Future of Elections: Can Artificial Intelligence Predict Poll Results?
Nature News - 11/12/2016
The artificial intelligence system was built in 2004 in Mumbai, and has been getting smarter with time. Using social media to predict the results of elections has become extremely popular because of the huge amount of information that can be easily accessed. Nick Beauchamp, a professor at Northeastern University, had experimented with artificial intelligence to over 100 million tweets in the election of 2012. The results, according to him, closely reflected the actual outcome. In an era, where self-driving vehicles will be hitting the roads soon, it’s likely that a major chunk of our everyday affairs will be managed by smart AI systems like MogIA.
