Political campaigns are moving from being labor and capital intensive to being technology intensive. How did digital media, data analytics, and behavioral science become centerpieces of modern campaigns? What are the implications for the campaigns themselves, and how do these changes affect political communications and voter outreach?

This panel of observers and practitioners will discuss how this revolution came about, what’s next for big data in politics, which party is ahead in terms of data and technology, and how much it matters in the 2016 campaign.
