Machine learning predicted a winner in the FIFA World Cup 2018 tournament. Who do you think it is?


MIT Technology Review has reported that computers have simulated the FIFA World Cup 2018 tournament 100,000 times, and Andreas Groll at the Technical University of Dortmund in Germany and his colleagues have analyzed this data. Using these results, they say that the machine learning algorithms have spit out the following prediction:

Spain will be the winner, unless Germany makes it to the quarter-finals. If the latter happens, then there is a higher likelihood of Germany winning the tournament.

Did you see the Germany-Mexico match last night? It was a major upset for Germany, the defending champions! So tell us… who do you think will win?
