ECI board july2010

  1. 1. ECI board First meeting (Brussels, 28 July, 2010) Open Deliberation: Hypermedia and Web Annotation Technologies to Enhance Public Participation Anna De Liddo Knowledge Media Institute Open University, UK
  2. 2. Our Approach We investigate different aspects and issues of Public Participation in Urban Planning and Decision-Making focusing on the key role of  deliberation practice,  deliberation tracking and  deliberation representation to enable more effective public participation. We look at Hypermedia discourse technologies to help move us from a deliberation process which is often ephemeral, ill-structured and disempowering, to deliberation which is persistent, more coherent and participatory.
  3. 3. Two Research Strands  Improving transparency: Supporting deliberation capturing and representation By recording deliberation and discourse digitally to make it possible to interrogate later on and use deliberation contents to actively inform decision making  Empowering Community voices and ideas: Facilitating Open Public Inquiry and Collective Intelligence By developing a “virtual agora” for open public inquiry on common policy issues

  5. 5. A Prototype Tool for Collective Intelligence With Cohere, researchers, policy-makers and EU citizens in can make their thinking visible and sharable with online communities by:   collaboratively annotating the Web,   leveraging lists of annotations into meaningful knowledge maps and   Engaging in structured online discussions.
  6. 6. Cohere Conceptual Model Cohere builds on a conceptual model which consists of four main users activities through which users can make their thinking visible and contribute to the development of Collective Intelligence around specific policy making issues:   annotate,   connect,   explore,   filter and make sense.

  11. 11. Open Deliberation Model Cohere supports an open deliberation model in which issues are created and discussed without pre-defined communication language, without facilitation and in an open deliberation environment. All participants have equal editing privileges, and create together new ideas, raise issues, ask questions, provide answers and propose arguments and counterarguments with an open semantic framework (not necessarily IBIS). Deliberation result is a Collective Claims map, which is a dynamic map of claims cooperatively generated by many hands and watched by many eyes, and continuously changing. This map is structured by an ongoing un-moderated debate and potentially can involve all citizens. It is the dynamic result of an “open virtual agora”.
