EDemocracy and Decision Making

Aim: Building a system that permits any group of people to find an agreed answer to an open question. I have a number of paper in this topic, and it is here where I do the most of my work as consultant and speaker. I have developed (sometimes alone, sometimes in collaborations) a number of […]

Artificial Chemistries

My aim while studying Artificial Chemistries was to build a system that would evolve in a way similar, and not inferior to how Nature itself evolves. As such in a way only limited by the memory and the computation power of the medium used (i.e. the cpu where I would run the experiment). You can […]

Vilfredo

Vilfredo is a platform I developed with my friend Derek Paterson, to reach consensus on an open question. It works by asking everybody in a group to propose their answer to the question and evaluate each other answer. It then analyses the evaluations to extract a shortlist of proposals that are representative of all participants. […]

The Voting Triangle

Rapporto Finale) The Voting Triangle is a tool we developed (originally with Cyril Velikanov), to gather more informations during the voting phase, […]
