Hello folks, I haven't posted in this forum before, was directed here by Edward Saperia - I'm Chris, you may know me from other election tech whatsapp groups etc.

I'm also a member of the WCIT (IT Livery company) and last night at the government panel there was talk of a project by LSE to produce a daily annotated Hansard that used ML/AI to figure out whether interventions / speeches by MPs were related to their declared interests.

I thought this was probably already a thing - does anyone know of a similar project (or maybe even more about this one?)

Hi Chris,

There's some details on that project in this blog post - on my list to check in with them and see how they're doing:

Best, Alex

Thanks Alex.  It was suggested that Politico already do this for subscribers but I can't find any evidence of that myself.

Not specifically, but I was starting a project to mine all that public input to seek those who were correct in their predictions as presented to these meetings.
