Еще matches there will be, three matches a day or two matches a day, it will predict [the outcome of a match] an hour or two before the match,» said Artur Zarkhi, Head of the VDNH Robostation. Bakster reportedly received a special update for predicting the outcome of the World Cup matches, including performance data, predictions and player interviews.
