This week, I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Louis Rosenberg from Unanimous.ai about their “Swarm AI” technology, which has so far had some pretty impressive results.
In a season-long test of the Swarm AI’s ability to forecast NBA games, researchers found that swarms were able to easily beat Vegas betting markets with a 25% Return on Investment. By using a deep neural network to determine only which games would be most profitable, that ROI more than doubled to 57%.
Inside AI: What does Unanimous do, and how did the company originate?
Dr. Rosenberg: While most AI companies are working to replace human intelligence with AI algorithms, Unanimous AI amplifies human intelligence by connecting networked groups of people together into super-intelligence systems. In layman’s terms, we build “hive minds” by connecting group of people together in real-time, moderated by AI algorithms, enabling them to converge on solutions that are significantly more accurate than the individuals could do on their own.
Our technology is called Swarm AI because it’s modeled on the biological principle of Swarm Intelligence – the phenomenon that enables flocking birds, schooling fish, and swarming bees to be significantly smarter together than alone. We have empowered networked human groups to achieve the same thing by connecting together online, enabling significantly more accurate forecasts, assessments, decisions, evaluations, and insights.
“We believe we’ve just scratched the surface of how smart these systems can be.”
– Dr. Louis Rosenberg
