Friday fun: Can you beat AI's intelligence in this FIFA Word Cup(2018)

Alright, I thought to post something else but today is July 13th(1st-ever football (soccer) World Cup competition began on this day in 1930)

Football. Futbol. Voetbal. Futebol. Fußball. Fotboll. Calcio.
No matter how we call it, at least 3.2 billion people (almost half of the world’s population) tuned in to watch the last World Cup(2014). I don't have to explain about this world cup, you all know laugh :D

"Artificial intelligence" is the fancy word in the tech industry, Soo many companies tried predicted the winner of this world cup. But Croatia broke all those results

To be more specific, a big firm ran 2,00,000 models, mining team data and individual player attributes that enabled them to predict specific match scores. With that data, they simulated 1 million variations before the tournament and concluded that Brazil would win.

Later, they ran the variations again and predicted Belgium would win. According to their AI's result, France has more probability of winning than Croatia.

Is artificial intelligence less than our intelligence? - Spike Jonze
My Answer: Yes

So, who do you think will win the 2018 FIFA WORLD CUP?

I predict that the team with the most goals will win the game ;-)


and just for a fun guess, I'll say Croatia.

haha good one 😎
Yeah Croatia is doing great..
may be we should start counting comments with respective to the country we predict 
Croatia : 1️⃣
France : 0️⃣

(Noth serious it is just a counter 😋)

I think that could be fun :D

I'm going out on a huge limb and saying it is a four way tie for first. : )

Woah, I wonder how they will resolve it in unconventional way.. maybe rolling a 🎲 ? 🤔

I'm rooting for Croatia now that Belgium is out (love an underdog) but predicting France for 1st and Belgium for 3rd! 

Awesome! you will be happy during finals regardless of the results 😀
btw, I think so too 👍🏻

Croatia : 1️⃣
France : 1️⃣
Belgium : 1️⃣

Wow great article and cool way to tie in AI Aswin! I haven't been following the World Cup, but I wish they brought back the predictive Octopus, that was way more fun than those AI algorithms! (At least 8x I would think ;D) 

Thanks @Michele Lim [cPrime]. Yeah "Paul the Octopus" 🐙 was fun!
To be honest 2 year old Octopus's success percentage was better than AI's success percentage

I used the multiple coin toss method, France will win and England will be Third Place.

Was it "best of 3" 😜

Croatia : 1️⃣
France : 2️⃣
Belgium : 1️⃣
England : 1️⃣

Best of 5 for each!!
