The Artificial Intelligence that perfectly predicted Kentucky Derby winners says war is imminent.

UNU Hive Mind

Its name is UNU and it’s a sort of artificial intelligence that works on a “hive mind” model. Its accuracy is startling. When asked to predict Oscar winners, it did so with 76% accuracy easily beating all critics. Last year it perfectly picked the first four of the Kentucky Derby, in order, to win a Superfecta with 540 to 1 odds. This week, in a publicly accessible Q&A session, it hinted at something quite frightening – new world conflicts.

What is UNU?

Donald TrumpUNI is a “swarm intelligence” that links intelligence from groups of expert individuals in a real time system. Using complex algorithms and realtime calculations, it easily beats human intelligence, including every individual that is part of the hive. For instance, in UNU’s Kentucky Derby prediction, none of the individual participants got the prediction right on their own (in fact, none of the participants had more than one winning horse). Only as a “swarm” could they win.

As UNU developers explained:

“UNU doesn’t work like a poll or a survey that finds the average of the opinions in a group. Instead, it creates an artificial swarm that amplifies the group’s intelligence to create its own.”

The result is an intelligence that far exceeds the intelligence of the group.

UNU’s public political predictions

On June 1, 2016, UNU participated in a political hive, taking queries from the public regarding political questions they would like answered. UNU’s answers include definitive yes and no answers as well as flexible answers such as “possibly” (it calls it “maybe”). Potential answers also include “likely” (it terms “I believe”) and “unlikely” (termed “I doubt it”). In some instances, it even provided textual answers as well as percentage chances.

As people presented questions to UNU, the answers were calculated and posted on a public forum. In some cases, the answers were fairly obvious.
