The Chinese tech giant Alibaba has created an artificial intelligence to predict the winner of a reality TV show.
I’m A Singer is an extremely popular Chinese singing contest and the AI will use big data to try to predict the winner of the final.
It will use data such as chatter on social media, the singer’s voice pitch and energy, the live response of the studio audience and choice of song.
Some commentators are confused about why the AI is being used for such a seemingly trivial purpose, but Alibaba has said it is treating the event as more of a proof-of-concept than anything else.
