Recently, an artificial intelligence platform was employed to prognosticate the winner horses of the 2016 Kentucky Derby.

The 142nd Kentucky Derby has the prediction pundits using many schemes and methodologies to pinpoint the winners. In 2015, Jimmy Fallon’s puppies tried their luck and correctly predicted the trends of the various race horses.

American Pharaoh, the horse which won, was rightly chosen by the little pups. Maybe by merely observing the horses, a better opinion could be formed regarding their winning or losing status. 

However, actually a more advanced and leading-edge strategy is being used now. This is the field of artificial intelligence. An AI platform termed UNU has applied the yoke to the massive crowds and thus correctly predicted many things. Called “Swarm AI”, this schemata looks to a different part of the brain altogether.

This is the swarming nature of insects. It is like the herd instinct. All the members of a group will influence one another so as to create a common prediction. This choice is much more advanced than the any single-handed prediction. This mechanism has been accurately used in the past.  

This tool can be utilized to predict the winners of the Super Bowl, Academy Awards and even politicos such as Donald Trump who are running for president.

Swarm AI was used to make important decisions regarding the Kentucky Derby, according to TechRepublic. The top four winner horses were chosen based on the opinions of 20 experts who looked on the required data beforehand.

Through Swarm AI this short-listing of equine candidates was made a possibility. It may be the perfect form of analysis and so Swarm AI will be gauged on Saturday when the 2016 Kentucky Derby does finally take place.
