Today a female prof from yale at OX Ethics Ins (with Schwarzman Scholars) asked about AI & participative democracy -it's not clear she included journalism or economists for humanity from adam smith on in her list of casses framed by PD jargon

Title: Can AI help bridge the gap between quality deliberation and mass participation?
Abstract: One unsolved problem in democratic theory is how we can reconcile the twin goals of quality deliberation and mass participation. Both are arguably conditions for the full legitimacy of a democratic system. Quality deliberation, as a process through which laws and policies are generated, in theory promises good governance (output-legitimacy) as well as, at the very least, good reasons for the laws and policies put forward. Mass participation, by contrast, is a condition for the democratic input-legitimacy of the system, namely its capacity to take into account people’s needs and preferences. Unfortunately, thus far, it has proven impossible to reconcile those two goals as the quality of deliberation diminishes past a relatively low threshold of participants (a few hundreds, perhaps a few thousand people) and mass participation, on the other hand, is not conducive to the thoughtful, informed exchanges smaller numbers afford. In this presentation I explore the ways in which Artificial Intelligence may help bridge that gap, at least up to a point, using examples of relatively large-scale deliberative processes in France, Taiwan, and Chile.
