Created By: Andrew James Benson

AI congress, AR avatars for natural systems, liquid democracy, smart contracts, e-voting, participatory budgeting, global democracy, blockchain - there are visions out there that could transform democracy to be more accountable, effective and inclusive...but they’re stuck in an echo chamber. In this talk, we'll break them free and discuss their merits.

Andrew James Benson is currently producing a web series that shares the visions of those working to realize more accountable, efficient, and inclusive democracies. Learn more about the project at:
