Trump: #1 among omnicidal AIs



CNBC - an AI predicts Trump will win the election. Quote:

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.

There you go. An AI predicts that Trump will win the election. Despite, y'know, being behind in every single poll.

Cuz you've already seen the movie, so you can be sure that if Trump doesn't win, the AI will hack into NORAD and send the launch codes to start WWIII.
