Andy Barkett, former Republican National Committee Chief Technology Officer and current Silicon Valley software developer, artificial intelligence (AI) consultant and angel investor, says our focus on election meddling in 2016 is delaying our ability to anticipate future electoral system vulnerabilities from cyberspace.
Barkett, 36, will speak to SFPRRT members about threats to our political infrastructure while sharing war stories from the battlefield. He also served as Jeb Bush’s CTO during the 2016 presidential campaign and worked as an engineering leader at Facebook and Google.
Barkett will explain the progression of digital advertising, from display ads to programmatic (or automated) ads to artificial intelligence-managed ads, targeted to individual consumers. He predicts that instant, individual customized ads, powered by artificial intelligence, will start to take over the political mediascape in 2020.
Don’t miss a fascinating look at how data and AI are rocking politics, and for that matter, everything else.
