New findings emphasize that there's strength in numbers, especially when making predictions about certain pop culture events.
A breakthrough technology called UNUM, developed by Louis Rosenberg, a pioneer in augmented reality and founder of Immersion Corp., allows groups of online users, or "human swarms," to collectively answer questions, make decisions and resolve dilemmas by working together.
These online groups work in real-time synchrony and collaboratively explore a decision-space to converge on solutions in a matter of seconds.

The platform holds the potential to harness collective intelligence - making predictions about events like the Academy Awards, the Super Bowl and the NBA Finals.
In fact, researchers at Unanimous A.I. have discovered that organizing online users into real-time swarms significantly increases the speed and accuracy of group predictions.
Unanimous A.I. researchers, inspired by birds and bees that come together in flocks or swarms, are using the new technology to delve into the fundamental question: Can humans swarm, and if so, can swarming boost the intelligence of online groups?
