Swarm AI® technology, developed by Unanimous AI, employs a unique combination of real-time human input and AI algorithms that are modeled after swarms in nature. Swarm Intelligence is the reason why birds flock, bees swarm, and fish school – they are smarter together than alone. Nature shows us that by forming closed-loop systems, groups can produce insights that greatly exceed the abilities of any individual member. While humans have not evolved this ability naturally, Swarm AI technology enables this artificially, allowing groups to amplify their intelligence by forming real-time swarms.
The winner of Best in Show & AI Innovation of the Year at SXSW 2018, Unanimous’ Swarm AI technology has been used in several high-profile and high-stakes applications. In a breakthrough experiment with Stanford University School of Medicine published in Nature, Digital Medicine in November 2019, a swarm of radiologists were able to make more accurate pneumonia diagnoses than either the doctors themselves or the most state-of-the-art Machine Learning algorithms. A swarm of pilots helped Boeing test and evaluate prototypes; a swarm of movie fans beat every expert on record at the Oscars in 2018; and, as reported by the Wall Street Journal, swarms correctly forecast the outcome of voting in all of the battleground states in the 2020 US Presidential election.
