PREDICTING ELECTION RESULT WITH AI – Buhari is currently losing by Kelly Idehen
I have been working on this project for a while now.
I want to see the possibility of using AI in predicting election results.
Using the Tweepy library I was able to stream over a 100,000 tweets which I passed through a Sentiment algorithm.
I’m using Dash/Plotly for graph & Frontend, SQLite for database & Python with its many libraries for Backend.
From the data I have been analyzing so far, things are not looking too good for Buhari.
Over the next few days I plan to collect more data (Over 1 Million if possible) and use this AI application in making a prediction.
Confession – Don’t mind me if I’m making this sound like one simple suntin. I’m still having headache from the many sleepless nights.
CAVEAT – This AI Predictor does not factor in data irregularities like: election rigging and vote buying. I’m not sure any AI system can predict for such kinds of scenarios.
Anyways, I wish everyone a great and peaceful election-nearing ahead.
DISCLAIMER – This is not intended to be like the FaceBook/ Cambridge Analytical US election saga.
This is mainly for research purposes.
