Prophecies of an AI: from wars and pandemics to future Olympic champions and the next elections

Nostradamus made more than 6,000 predictions about the future, while the mystic Baba Vanga would have many prophecies, but there are no reliable records of them being written or mentioned by her. Taking this into account, giving prophetic capabilities to an AI is not so far-fetched either: having all the knowledge in the world and with time in its favor, an artificial intelligence has the same probability of being right.

This is undoubtedly what those responsible for EMI have considered, a chatbot to which we can ask what will happen in the future: elections, future fashion, possible wars, Olympic gold medals…Anything we think about, EMI has a possible answer.

How is an AI developed with this objective? The way we look at the future is a combination of the flow of information and the conversations we have every day. Those responsible for EMI collect “information from a variety of sources, ranging from news articles and academic research to social media posts and conversations informal with friends. We try to make sense of all that information, to create an image of reality and what the future holds for us. AI is a more sophisticated tool to do the same.

By analyzing massive amounts of data and identifying patterns and trends, AI algorithms can offer insights and predictions that would be difficult, if not impossible, for a human being to discover alone. But it is important remember that AI is not a magic solution. The “reliability” of EMI's prophecies depends on the data it receives and can be prone to biases and errors like any other human-made system. And in this case.

“By interacting with an AI oracle – explain the EMI authors –, users They can explore new ideas and perspectives, and test their assumptions with the latest data and analysis. EMI is built on Inworld technology. “Inworld Engine comprises multiple character AI and machine learning models that are designed to mimic human gestures, speech, safety, emotions, and memory.”
