Discover the Artificial Intelligence polling solution* developed by EPFL Social Media Lab. 

Use the predictive analytics boxes to anticipate the next official polls' results.
The algorithm tracks opinions on each of two candidates across the web to predict the outcome of the elections in real-time.


*The solution measures the changes in opinions expressed on the web (here for Clinton vs. Trump) and it shows how it can anticipate the shifts in the public opinion during the campaign and most importantly before the election day. This new “web opinion metric” is real-time and has a predictive nature for coming polls, elections or public votes. The platform makes use of different Artificial Intelligence algorithms, such as graph analysis, NLP and deep machine learning, to understand the dynamics of the opinions on the web and their trends.
