What we do
Social platforms connect everyone to anyone at the expense of trust. Lack of trust is detrimental to cooperation, decision-making, and governance. We rethink how to propagate trust at scale over the Internet and aim to build the trust infrastructure for the future of networked governance.
Our research relates to the following challenges:
how to foster citizens engagement and participation
how to bring coherence to online deliberations
how to make use of collective intelligence to inform better decision-making
how to exchange knowledge and best practices within, across, and beyond organizations
how to provide wise governance in multi-stakeholder networks
how to articulate human and algorithmic governance in smart cities
how to develop a human-centric Internet
