By Silas McRobotface
LOS ANGELES—Describing the technology as “revolutionary,” Google employee Laura Shierholz told reporters Monday that a machine can now be trained to predict NFL games in real-time. “This is a huge breakthrough, and I can’t wait to see what the future will bring,” said the former Google employee, who was hired in 2006 and is tasked with predicting the outcome of seasons, evaluating games, and reporting back to Google. “I’d say this is the start of a whole new era in sports.” At press time, Shierholz had reportedly received an offer to work for the Australian government.
