ICG used the LUX2016 information to predict the winners and losers of both of the previous debates -- literally 12 hours before the pundits or the pollsters.
Bethesda, Maryland (PRWEB) October 12, 2015
ICG is pleased to announce that LUX2016 is now available at no cost, for anyone who wishes to track the issues and candidates, in real time, for the 2015-2016 Democratic and Republican national debates. ICG introduced LUX2016 just a few days before the first Republican primary debate to great accolades. It has successfully tracked both Republican national debates in real time. LUX2016, a new solution based on the LUX analytics platform, is tailor-made to closely track the candidates, as well as the issues that matter most in the 2016 U.S. Federal and State elections.
LUX2016 enables anyone interested in politics, as well as associations, campaigns, and political organizations to see how candidates, and the issues they discuss in the debate, are faring in true real time. The system tracks major issues, including jobs, immigration, foreign policy, abortion, gun control, and others, by monitoring all of the incoming social feeds related to them. Additional issues may be tracked using LUX2016, by simply adjusting or creating them. ICG calls this personalized election monitoring. Anyone can register to use LUX2016 by visiting icgsolutions.com and clicking on the LUX2016 register button found in the middle of the home page.
In the first two debates, LUX2016 was able to detect an uptick in the amount of activity each candidate was receiving – while they had the microphone in hand. The intensity of the uptick, as well as the duration of the increased activity, were clear indicators of resonance and interest. ICG used this information to predict the winners and losers in both of the previous debates – literally 12 hours before the pundits or the pollsters. That is harnessing the power of the LUX analytics technology.
LUX2016 is powered by the LUX real-time analytics platform. LUX makes sense of large amounts of data in motion. It gathers, aggregates, correlates, and alerts users to high value discoveries in real time, leading to faster and more thorough decisions in time-critical situations. LUX complements and supplements current data analytics systems, freeing developers, IT experts and data scientists to move to a more valuable understanding and interpretation of what the fused, real-time data is unveiling.
