Aug 3, 2022

Could democracy be strengthened by an AI-assisted deliberation platform?

According to Alice Siu and thousands of others who are using one, the answer is a resounding yes.

Tune in to discover:

  • What an AI-assisted mediator can offer that humans can’t
  • How the platform encourages people to express their opinions through “nudges”
  • The emotional and life-changing experiences of people who’ve taken to the platform to use their voice and engage with others  
  •  How stratified random sampling on the platform works to capture microcosms of public opinion on a wide variety of topics

Siu is part of the Deliberative Democracy Lab at Stanford, which is making waves in an otherwise seemingly idle sea of American voices.

Climate reform, AI fairness, electoral reform, energy … the list of topics being discussed in this new deliberative online world goes on and on.
