Artificial intelligence predicts the winners of Euro 2016 games

10.06.16 – EPFL researchers have developed a website that calculates the likely winners of Euro 2016 soccer games, using a more complex and accurate model than conventional statistical methods. Can EPFL do better than Paul the Octopus? That’s what the developers of kickoff.ai are hoping, with a new website that uses artificial intelligence to predict the results of Euro 2016 soccer games starting with the very first round. According to their calculations, France should beat Romania in the opening game on Friday, and Switzerland should come out ahead of Albania in their game on Saturday. The three researchers – who are also avid soccer fans – developed their model at EPFL’s Computer Communications & Applications Laboratory. Their model uses a combination of machine-learning algorithms and data mining, making it more…
