Huge Stakes Meant We Needed to Get Involved
Our CEO and co-founder Bhargav Patel said, “Two generations ago candidates for public office could more easily connect with a voter base. Connecting was as simple as organizing a town hall. Today neighborhoods are ethnically diverse enclaves with distinct concerns and political motivations. Progressive campaigns need a better way to remain connected and responsive to voters.” He added, “Algorithms and data mining have already revolutionized our consumer experiences. It’s time to apply these best practices to voting and the political arena.” The public policy stakes are too high and it’s the only way our democratic institutions can endure.
Chintan Buch, CTO/Founder at IQM said, “We’ve excelled at putting together a team of immensely talented developers and IT professionals with a specialized expertise to implement customized AI-powered solutions in the political sphere.”
Back also said “There’s a great deal of responsibility involved in the work we do. We want to motivate voters and empower political activism, but the public needs truthful content based on facts. We’ve found that undecided voters typically make decisions based on positive fact-based news, rather than sensationalized content. We want to leverage this information and convert interest into a decision at the voting booth.”
Our voter intelligence platform contains over 36,000 voter attributes to create an unlimited number of segments that can be viewed, analyzed, and optimized. IQM service fees may be applied via subscription or on a data-as-a-service (DaaS) basis.
