If you have a silver lining on who wins at the 62nd annual Grammys this coming Sunday, prediction tips are available, and it's not insider trading, it's artificial intelligence (AI) .

Some of the top nominees are Lizzo, who has eight nominations, Lil Nas X with six nominees, and Billie Eilish with nominations in the top four categories, according to CBS News.
Taylor Larkin, a data scientist with the company, used the DataRobot AI campaign platform to predict the winners for this year’s song and album.
DataRobot takes advantage of machine learning models to learn from the past to predict the future, Larkin said. “For a Grammy prediction, the past is named and winners and the future is Grammy's future.

If Grammy musicians and presenters can get free of drama, AI will be like a watery cat kit on Monday. In addition to technology-backed predictions, AI will appear on the red carpet. Don't forget the old "who are you?" questions, as AI hosts a preview, while the 1,500 artists jump from limos and make their way into the auditorium.
Starting four hours before the televised awards show, on Grammy.com, and thanks to a partnership between IBM and the Recording Academy, IBM took over 18 million documents and data sources on this year's Grammy nominees, and they pulled down to the most interesting ones. knobs about each artist, to create Grammy Insights by Watson, which is a modern version of the popular 90s Pop-Up Video. The final installment of Grammy Insights will be broadcast live on CBS.
And with the nominees, presenters and attendees running the number of reporters on the red carpet, they are likely to say who they like, but may not name details, for fear of “jinxing” or embarrassment. But that's okay. AI has done the work for them.
