Reliable AI system predicts Donald Trump will win the election

By Nathan Rousseau Smith, Veuer

Major national polls may show Donald Trump trailing Hillary Clinton, but one reliable prediction system thinks he will actually pull away with the win.

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.

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.
