Automated Democracy

Replacement of politicians by digital agents: a citizen uses personal data after choosing a training algorithm from a marketplace of algorithms to train the agent in predicting how the citizen would vote based on the data provided; the predictive algorithm is combined with an execution algorithm – a bot – which operates in the political system on behalf of the citizen. The citizen can audit the system, can set the agent on autopilot, but can also choose to pause the digital agent in case the citizen wants to decide personally on a specific issue.
