Big data and election prediction: analysing online information seeking during elections

A session at mySociety Oxford Meetup

Wednesday 7th January, 2015

7:15pm to 7:45pm (GMT)

We're really pleased to be joined by Dr. Jonathan Bright from the Oxford Internet Institute, who will talk about his current research.

Jonathan is a political scientist specialising in computational and 'big data' approaches to the social sciences.

His major interest concerns studying how people get information about the political process, and how this is changing in the internet era.

He'll join us to speak about his current project which examines the extent to which information seeking behaviour on Google and Wikipedia can be used to predict electoral outcomes.
