[D] Effectiveness of Cambridge Analytica
I was watching “The Great Hack” today and that makes it sound like Cambridge Analytica was some mind-blowing machine learning algorithm that did some amazing targeting.
The way I see it, they harvested a lot of data illegally from Facebook, but I am not sure how sophisticated or amazing their algorithm was. What are your thoughts on Cambridge Analytica purely from ML point of view? Are there any publications regarding it?
