Dear Computer scientists, Political scientists, students and enthusiasts,
you are welcomed to attend for free the ‘Computational Politics e-symposium on 1 March 2023’. Its exciting program can be found in:
Participation is through the zoom link <https://authgr.zoom.us/j/94255772113> (passcode: 867064) also posted in this www page.
No registration is needed.
The aim of this e-symposium is to define Computational Politics as a discipline lying at the intersection of Political science and Computer science.
Politics (in Greek: ‘Πολιτική’, ‘city-state affairs’) refers to activities associated with decision-making in social groups (including states), or other forms of power relations among individuals and/or social strata. It is essentially the art or science of government. Therefore, politics require both the analysis of political, social and financial data, decision making and decision execution/monitoring. As all these political activities concern both information analysis and control of societal processes, they can be greatly assisted by Information Technologies (IT), notably Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence and Systems Theory (Cybernetics). Computational Politics refers exactly to the use of AI and IT in politics and Political Science.
Computational Politics has various subtopics, e.g.,:
* Political system modeling and design
* Community and citizen modeling
* Information flow
* Political discourse analysis
* Election campaigns
* Political history
* Politics and Economics.
The e-symposium contains 11 lectures overviewing most of the above topics, as well as underlying technological tools, e.g.,
* Natural language Processing
* Text sentiment analysis
* Time series prediction.
They will be delivered by both well-known scientists and qualified junior researchers.
This symposium is the third edition of the ‘AI Mellontology symposium’ series. It is organized by the Horizon2020 AI4media <https://www.ai4media.eu/> R&D project and it is sponsored by the International AI Doctoral Academy (AIDA <https://www.i-aida.org/> ) and LITHME <https://lithme.eu/> Cost action.
