Political Analytics is a one-day conference at Harvard University featuring top minds from media, politics, and academics. We are starting an exciting conversation about the growing role of data and analytics in determining the winners and losers in politics. This unique event will highlight and showcase how emerging forms of analytics are changing the way we understand politics in the 21st century.
Political Analytics is the creation of Ryan Enos and Kirk Goldsberry, and is organized by Ryan, Kirk, Shannon McGregor and Stephen Pettigrew. It is sponsored by the Center for American Political Studies at Harvard University (Stephen Ansolabehere, Director) and co-sponsored by the Harvard Institute for Quantitative Social Science. We thank L2 for providing the data for the Hackathon. The conference organizers gratefully acknowledge the support of Microsoft for the inaugural 2016 conference.
