    Maybe we should have set our own swarm try it for the internationals. Need a decent amount of people 20 or so. Anyone interested?

    This tool isn't: unique, intelligent (or AI) nor beneficial, as the results will only ever as good as the input quality.
    It offers no USP or advantage over anything else other than slightly fancy chart graphics.
    The claims of this Beta/Start-up are wildly exaggerated, and even false in most cases.

    What exactly is it?

    Are any of their picks available ahead of time to verify results or is it a case that they put up a retrospective "look how we did" post

    Can you post up why there false?

    There are many false claims as to the nature of the product overall.

    From their own website's footer:
    UNANIMOUS A.I. develops Swarm A.I.TM technology that amplifies human intelligence, empowering groups to harness their collective knowledge, wisdom, and intuition by forming real-time A.I. systems.

    1). It's not AI, and it's very basic technology e.g. polling.
    2). The 'amplification' can be negative as well as positive, thus an irrelevant claim.
    3). 'Empowering' isn't unique to this, any other method (inc. boards), or even off-line group option surveying will suffice.
    4). Wisdom - can be from a negative (unwise) or false bias, there is no method to validate actual quality, as input can be from anon unknown sources.
    5). Intuition isn't aided by this website, if anything it's hindered.

    In summary:
    It's little more than a jacked-up on-line poll. Likely to support 'start-up funding'. It's USP isn't novel or unique.
    May be useful for crowd feedback through fancy chart graphics, but that's it.

    If you have a bunch of people who know very little about (profitable) betting inputting their opinion then the results don't mean anything.

    Same as OLBG. I looked at their tipster tables over the last 12 months for football and the top guys are losing badly. No different that your mates in the whatsapp group throwing out ideas who they think will win a game.

    Had to laugh when I see that they are calling this artificial intelligence.

    At first glance its a nice website but its a basic wordpress theme.
