How to Steal an Election - Data Science For Evil

Submitted by Gary Short

Talk Abstract:

In this session I'll demonstrate some of the data science techniques that can be used to influence a population to a particular way of thinking, or to vote in a particular way.

With all the talk of collusion in the American, and other, elections I think it's about time we explore the art of the possible in this field, and see just how they might have done it.
