Algorithms in the North Pole: Santa to Use AI to Build Naughty or Nice List


The global population has grown so much that Santa has an increasingly hard time bringing his naughty or nice list up to date in time for Christmas. This year, his elves have decided to harness the power of artificial intelligence and data analytics to produce naughty and nice scores for the children of the world.

So what?

With his new naughty or nice bot, Santa can now determine the exact percentage of “niceness” that a person contains. This could mean that those who rank higher in the nice category will receive better presents, while those with a high naughty score will get a piece of 3D printed coal (because Santa wants to respect the environment). Play nice, children!
