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:

“A nonprofit that’s hosting a career fair for the Hispanic community can use Facebook ads to reach people who have an interest in that community. And a merchant selling hair-care products that are designed for black women can reach people who are most likely to want its products,” he wrote.
“That merchant also may want to exclude other ethnicities for whom their hair care products are not relevant—this is a process known in the ad industry as “exclusion targeting.”…”
“…Artificial intelligence and decision-support algorithms that can offer data-driven suggestions will unleash a new level of productivity among workers, allowing everyone to focus on what matters and to continually help one another improve.
Turning this into reality may be closer than you think, thanks to machine learning and predictive data engines…”
