An artificial intelligence (AI) program that successfully predicted winners for the Academy Awards and the Super Bowl has now successfully predicted the racehorse winners for Kentucky Derby Superfecta. The AI called UNU managed to predict not just the winning racehorse, but also the second, third, and fourth horse in the derby - a 540-1 odd, giving its creator Louis Rosenberg a $10,842 winning for[...] Read more » Artificial Intelligence Turns $20 Bet Into $11,000 In Kentucky Derby

It would be impossible to predict the winner of every race. A well-developed machine learning technique or artificial intelligence could pick winners as well as a professional tipster by utilizing a model representing a pattern in the data of past results, which could be applied to future races.

In this case it is not the machine alone that made the prediction of the winners UNU is based on a group of peoples specialist in this case horse race they have to answer questions and then the machine analyse them all and come with the answer which was very good in this case.
With the same method they came with 11 of 15 academy awards again a very good result.
It's not rocket science it's just fckin not-so-basic statistical analysis. Not even with a proper AI. Also the Oscar race became a formality since the new voting system been implemented so theres that. But I guess I am just a troll who like to $hit on things for the sake of being a contrarian...

Where can i buy one of these machines!!! It does sound quite incredible that a machine can predict winners of these events. To predict the first, second, third and fourth in just one race is quite unheard of though

I am pretty BRM_Henrik is going to buy one. It will be the most positive EV move he ever made. 9 out of 9 picks will no more be record here. The new motto will be- 100% of the time BRM_Henrik gets it right every time. No more complaints about losing tips, think about it.
PS: Just kidding. Not even AI can get every pick right. Too many variables and randomness involved.

To be perfectly honest if I was an AI then I'd be pissed off all the time if somebody would want to use my special skillset to predict fcukin winners on a race. Any kind of race. Such a waste of effort and time.
