 Analytics in Politics

Speaker: Peter Mohanty

Mohanty is analyzing the 2016 U.S. presidential election using his R package, which augments Kernel Regularized Least Squares (KRLS). Mohanty shows how KRLS can easily generate highly nuanced analytics that challenge simplistic narratives about the election. Mohanty was recently appointed a fellow of science, engineering and education in the Department of Statistics at Stanford University.
