Main Talks
--------------

John Sandall - How To Forecast An Election

Learn about the field of psephology, a division of political science that deals with the examination and statistical analysis of elections and political polling. Psephology and the polling that underlies it are powerful forces in contemporary politics: they shape our political narratives around elections, govern the news cycle and act as powerful social proof of a campaign’s success or failure.

As trust in polling declines and as technology begins to unlock new sources of political information, we ask what is the future of this discipline and how will it affect campaigning? How do psephologists build predictive models for results and turnout? What kind of models, approaches, and data do psephologists currently use? Can new approaches be developed using data science techniques that are emerging from different sectors?

Ben Byford - Making Ethical AI projects

A brief tour of some of the considerations you should be making when creating ML/AL services. I'll talk through why you might want to consider the Ethical impact of your work, what you can do and what an Ethical project might look like.
