Event Description


Dig into the forefront of Machine Learning Algorithms and AI with an interactive session with Nik Nanos, the Chief Data Scientist at Nanos Research.  Nik has been designing and applying machine learning algorithms (MLAs) and transforming the Nanos workplace and work processes by using MLAs to improve productivity, turnaround and client results.  This will be a hands-on interactive session on how MLAs are used at Nanos and their implications for research driven client insight.  


Join Nik and your fellow CMC’s for what should prove to be a dynamic session.


Speaker: Nik Nanos, CMC FMRIA, Chief Data Scientist and Founder, Nanos Research Corporation

Nik Nanos leads Nanos Research, one of Canada’s most distinguished research companies. The Nanos Research Group of Companies includes Signal Leadership Communications, a social public relations firm with images to create, issues to manage, relationships to build and reputations to protect in a digitally disrupted era. It also includes Nanos-dimap Analytika, an analytics and targeting research practice which is a joint venture with dimap, one of Germany’s top research organizations.


He is the Chief Data Scientist and Founder of Nanos Research, a Global Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington DC, and a research associate professor at the State University of New York at Buffalo. He is also the current Chair of Carleton University in Ottawa which has 28 thousand students and a budget of over $500M.


Nik leads the team behind the weekly Bloomberg Nanos Canadian Confidence Index, considered a must-have resource for senior executives and is also featured in a weekly segment on CTV’s News Channel, Nanos on the Numbers, which focuses on the latest political, business and social trends.

He is the pollster for CTV News, Canada’s largest private broadcaster, the Globe& Mail, Canada’s national newspaper, Bloomberg News in Canada.

Nik’s new book published in 2018, the Age of Voter Rage, examines the rise of populist politics in the US, the UK, Canada and France, the restructuring of citizen engagement and how small swings in voter sentiment have a disproportionate impact on democratic outcomes.
