Reliable AI system predicts Donald Trump will win the election
By Nathan Rousseau Smith, Veuer
The artificial intelligence system, MogIA, is predicting Donald Trump will be our next president.
Before tossing that notion aside, consider that the AI system has successfully predicted the past three elections.

According to CNBC, the system examines 20 million data points from social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook, as well as Google and YouTube, to track engagement levels.
The result shows Donald Trump's engagement numbers are 25% higher than President Obama's were back in 2008. According to the AI's founder, those with the highest engagement numbers end up winning the election.
MogIA founder Sanjiv Rai told CNBC, "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."
However, there is one huge factor that could make MogIA wrong: when creating its prediction, the system has difficulty separating negative posts about a candidate from positive ones.
So, while MogIA thinks any publicity is good publicity, it'll be up to the humans to have the final say.
