Machine learning is still bad at predicting consumer choices

After mastering massive amounts of data and tracking users almost perfectly, will AI be omnipotent?

They found that instant information such as user reviews, recommendations, and new choices has an increasing influence on decision-making, which cannot be measured and anticipated in advance, and that big data can improve predictions, but to a small extent, and predictions are still very imprecise.
