WEBCAST WEDS – Beyond Cambridge Analytica: Microtargeting and Online Campaigns in 2020 #microtargeting @isocdc @AmericanU @InternetGov @emmalbriant @davekarpf @aram

livestreamOn Wednesday September 2 2020, at 10:00 EDT (14:00 UTC), the Internet Society Washington DC Chapter, the Internet Governance Lab, and the American University School of Communication present ‘Beyond Cambridge Analytica: Microtargeting and Online Campaigns in 2020‘.

Use of data and microtargeting in political advertising were famously critiqued after in the 2016 US elections, and in relation to other recent influence campaigns around the world. Though the principal firm known for these campaigns, Cambridge Analytica, shuttered in 2018, these techniques are still widely employed, and several former CA employees are now involved with new data analytics and campaign firms including Data Propria, which has been linked to the 2020 election.

For this event, two of the foremost researchers into online political communications discuss evolving campaign strategy and methods, clarify lingering myths and misunderstandings and reflect on the significance, impact and lessons for campaign communications in the 2020 US presidential election and beyond.
