As the media and pollsters begin their soul-searching to understand their biases and blindspots, AI data has been taking a closer look as well.  Sanjiv Rai of Indian start-up Genic.ai spoke about his MogIA to CNBC and revealed that Artificial Intelligence may have been the shouting Cassandra in the 2016 Electoral Chaos.
