---- How accurate/reliable is your web analytic tool?

When I say AI, I mean a system designed to track trends and derive needed conclusions. This can never be 100% accurate but certainly can filter a good percentage.
Yes, that's what I thought you meant. There are certainly patterns that an AI system can be taught to recognize, such as repeated IPs (or accesses concentrated within IP blocks), dictionary attacks, and the like. The problems begin when the usage pattern is not so predictable, such as that which some casual user does. The fraudsters are aware of this, and design their bots to operate as if a human being was generating the traffic.
