Article: Inventing the Data Machine

I’m late updating this, but I wanted to link to my latest article about data science in the political realm.

The country is in a weird state right now, and it seems like we are hurtling toward a state of perpetual partisan deadlock, so please bear in mind this was written back in January. I tried to focus on facts – what a notion! – rather than project my own politics onto the subject. I cover the development of data science in political campaigns and the individuals who contributed to its development.
