According to Wikipedia, In the field of computer science, artificial intelligence (AI), sometimes called machine intelligence, is intelligence demonstrated by machines, in contrast to the natural intelligence displayed by humans and other animals.
Computer science defines AI research as the study of “intelligent agents”: any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of successfully achieving its goals.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) scholars have predicted that Muhammadu Buhari will be the winner of the 2019 presidential election in Nigeria. The AI algorithm is the same type used in applications such as face detection, handwriting recognition, image classification (Cancer detection), Bioinformatics etc.
In addition, AI is a more scientific method to foresee the future.
The algorithm predicts the winner to a 100 percent accuracy using features like;
- Geopolitical zones
- The age of contestants and other important features.
- Number Of Party Governors
- Number of party Federal Law makers
Of course, take these predictions with a grain of salt. We the researchers at the University Of Benin say that external intervention in the Nigeria Elections may negate our prediction.
