If you do not want to accept predictions, you can click on the Discard option. You can also reverse the scale order by clicking on Reverse Order link. Discard and Reverse Order options are displayed temporarily and will go away in 10 seconds or if you click anywhere outside the question area.

Can I edit the predicted answer options?

Yes. Once answers are auto-filled, you can edit them or also add remove options. For example, for gender, we have autofilled Male and Female as the answer options, you can now add the 'Prefer not to answer' option by adding another option.

How does prediction work? What is the secret sauce?

Our AI engine is self-learning and improves with time. We initially have basic rules which will evolve with time and usage. If some combination is discarded numerous time, our prediction engine will pick it up and update/stop prediction for that combination. Newer rules and prediction combination will get added based on usage.
