After some lively debate this past week with my friends and colleagues, I found myself revisiting the subject of “free will”. Ironically, while discussing this topic at dinner, we saw Christof Koch, a world renowned expert on Consciousness walk by us in a group of other researchers. It seemed like a sign from the universe our group was onto something.
I’ve been looking for a way to apply some of my data skills to better understanding what is going on in the world of politics lately. Like many people, I was surprised by the outcome of the last election, and I wanted to see if I could work with some data to help me better understand it.
