"Fighting Gerrymandering with PyMC3" - Karin Knudson and Colin Carroll, from PyCon 2018

At the end of 2017, there were seven states with ongoing redistricting litigation. We will discuss a statistical model that the United States Supreme Court declared to be appropriate in cases of racial gerrymandering, and show how it can be implemented and used with the library PyMC3. We will also discuss what the model tells us about racial gerrymandering in North Carolina.
