CS Table 4/12: Role of data science in elections

Join us for a discussion of the role of data science in elections. The four articles below discuss the novel use of data in President Obama's 2012 reelection campaign, the Cruz campaign's approach this election cycle, and two retrospectives on Nate Silver's predictions from the 2012 election.

Computer science table (CS Table) is a weekly meeting of Grinnell College community members (students, faculty, staff, etc.) interested in discussing topics related to computing and computer science. CS Table meets Tuesdays from 12:00-12:45 in JRC 224C. Students on meal plans, faculty, and staff are expected to cover the cost of their meals. Visitors to the College and students not on meal plans can charge their meals to the department.
