Big Data Analytics and Predicting Election Results

April 1, 2019

The best way to predict the future is to study past behavior. This is the underlying idea behind Big Data Analytics. The 2008 Obama election campaign was one of the first to take advantage of data-driven methods in the race to an elected office. The Obama campaign had a data analytics team of 100 people. This shows how deeply data analytics impacts the world. From recommending products to customers on e-commerce websites (i.e. using predictive analytics) to electing the most powerful official of the free world. Big Data Analytics is indeed everywhere. Data analytics has evolved itself to become the brain of every election campaign since the Obama campaign. Data analytics helps the election campaign to understand the voters better and hence adapt to their sentiments. Now let‘s find out how data analytics affects the elections and how election campaigns use it

Cerebras Systems

Cerebras Systems is a team of pioneering computer architects, computer scientists, deep learning researchers, functional business experts and engineers of all types. We have come together to build a new class of computer to accelerate artificial intelligence work by three orders of magnitude beyond the current state of the art. The CS-2 is the fastest AI computer in existence. It contains a collection of industry firsts, including the Cerebras Wafer Scale Engine (WSE-2). The WSE-2 is the largest chip ever built. It contains 2.6 trillion transistors and covers more than 46,225 square millimeters of silicon. The largest graphics processor on the market has 54 billion transistors and covers 815 square millimeters. In artificial intelligence work, large chips process information more quickly producing answers in less time. As a result, neural networks that in the past took months to train, can now train in minutes on the Cerebras CS-2 powered by the WSE-2.

In medicine the impact of data has much more drastic effects, as access to high-quality medical data is a matter of life or death for patients every day. In this particular area, the desire to save human life by discovering modern methods of therapy and diagnostics often contradicts another fundamental right of the patient - the right to privacy and the right to dispose of one’s data.

The Blueprint for a Data Governance Program

whitePaper | August 25, 2022

Most organizations realize data governance is necessary - if not indispensable - for mitigating data risk while sustaining its longterm value. However, there’s still a fair amount of ambiguity around what exactly data governance is and how to best implement it. By definition, data governance is an enterprise-wide initiative for formalizing the processes, people, and protocols for using data. It reduces risk while increasing data’s ultimate value: consistent reusability for achieving mission critical objectives. Data governance is a strategic approach for creating unassailable trust in data throughout the enterprise.
