Mass Online deliberation, how to make it happen.
Procedural And Algorithmic Aspects of Mass Online Deliberation
Authors: Pietro Speroni di Fenizio, Alois, Paulin, Cyril Velikanov
If a really topical and controversial problem is proposed for public deliberation, and there are solid expectations that the results of deliberation will be at least influential if not decisive - then we can expect that really many citizens (thousands, tens of thousands...) will consider it worthwhile to join an open online deliberation over that issue, and will actively participate in it.
However, such a mass online deliberation (MOD) raises several problems, related to how a very large number of users' one-to-many interactions can be coordinated and aggregated. These problems can only be solved by using a carefully designed MOD support system (MOD-SS).
We analyse those problems and propose our solution to them, based on the principles of fairness and self-moderation, and using a special kind of two-parameter evaluation of participants' proposals. This makes it possible for the support system to cluster proposals according to how similar they are perceived by other participants.
Our system will be implemented as a server cloud application with an open API and several alternative client applications for different use-cases.
