Hi everyone πŸ‘‹,

During the last 18 months, I played β€” maybe too much β€” with census & elections data and tried to predict the french elections with deep learning. I'm not officially a ML researcher, that's only a side project, so be nice please πŸ™ ! I'm sharing this only to have fun discussions with people who have the same kink as me. 😊

Here it is πŸ‘‰ Predicting the Elections with Deep Learning - Part 1 - Results

You don't have to be a data scientist to read this 1st post which talks only about the results of the experiment.

TLDR of this 1st post:

  • No I didn't find a way to predict the elections results
  • But It's surprising how much you can learn about voters behavior (who votes for which party), even using only aggregated public data.
  • It's only qualitative results so it's not real science.
  • Still, it's interesting (worrying?) to think about what would be possible with more data (e.g: FAANG)

After that, I'll write 2 more posts: 1 for the model implementation and 1 for the MLOps tooling I've used.
