Experiments with AI

According to Mr. Masayuki Kanazawa, accuracy rates of blood type predictions with AI are around 40% now.

The followings are excerpts:

For your information, I tried to predict the blood type using AI technology (Amazon AWS S3 + ML) on a trial basis. The results: each accuracy rate is 42%. This is a little lower than expected. But if it is going like this, the accuracy rate may exceed 50%, I hope.

By the way, in the second trial (No.2), I misplaced the learning data settings and used little data of women in their thirties, at the beginning. After I corrected the settings to use all the data, the accuracy rate has greatly improved by 5-10%.

This may have proved that the characteristic of the blood type changes considerably with gender and age.

Next time, I am going to modify the model and try again.
