An algorithm that predicts relationship status with 86 per cent accuracy has decided President Trump is single

THE INDEPENDENT has mentioned technology: "President Donald Trump’s erratic Twitter habits led a sophisticated computer algorithm to conclude that he lives “like a bachelor”.

The artificial intelligence system, which is used to predict the marital status of social media accounts and claims to have an 86 percent accuracy rate, identified Mr. Trump as “not married”.

The algorithm was developed by researchers at ITMO University in St Petersburg and the National University of Singapore, who trained the computer through machine learning to analyze data from Twitter, Instagram, and Foursquare."
