Assessing the Irish Border Issue and Brexit with Machine Learning

Global Risk Intel | Dec 6, 2019

One of the most complex issues policymakers face as they negotiate the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union is how to regulate the Irish border. Under British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s current Brexit deal, Northern Ireland could become both part of the UK and the EU,
creating trade risks for businesses. In order to understand public opinion on issues related to the Irish border and connect them with the 2019 general election in the UK, Global Risk Intel utilized artificial intelligence to create a Twitter sentiment analysis. The results expand and deepen our understanding of what voters are thinking and associate with relevant topics, enhancing our capacity to create a modern, state-of-the-art risk analysis.
