A pioneering computer scientist wants algorithms to be regulated like cars, banks, and drugs by https://is.gd/7FOiY3

It’s convenient when Facebook can tag your friends in photos for you, and it’s fun when Snapchat can apply a filter to your face. Both are examples of algorithms that have been trained to recognize eyes, noses, and mouths with consistent accuracy.

When these programs are wrong—like when Facebook mistakes you for your sibling or even your mom—it’s hardly a problem. In other situations, though, we give artificial intelligence much more responsibility, with larger consequences when it inevitably backfires.

Referendum 2016 in Italy – Forecast

As for the USA Presidential Forecast I used my algorithm with some (better: many)  needed changes to adapt it to the Italian Referendum scenario.

Today, it is not possible to publish the results due to the Italian laws about referendum but I created a .png file that shows them. Then I obtained an on-line timestamp by http://www.originstamp.org/  and so I will be able to publish the .png forecast file tomorrow proving exactly when I created it.

Moreover, I published a Tweet with the file hash of that .png file in order to publicly prove it:

Meanwhile, let me publish just some data about the main referendum hashtags trends on 11/15/2016 and today:
