Open-source Institutions Talks III

Open-source Institutions Talks 3

October 14th, 15th, and 23rd, 2020

Organized by Center for Advanced Studies – South East Europe

The intelligence of the next generation of European institutions hinges on a system of technologically-mediated participatory policy-making and problem-solving.

Center for Advanced Studies – South East Europe (University of Rijeka) is currently developing a project in collaboration with RadicalxChange Foundation, that will test and examine several variants of vTaiwan model for open-source governance in the context of european institutions. For purposes of developing this project, we are organizing a series of talks on the relevant contemporary developments in institutional designs that utilize collective intelligence.

First two workshops featured talks from E. Glen Weyl (RadicalxChange Foundation, Microsoft), Anne de Zeeuw (Netwerk Democratie) and Shu Yang Lin (vTaiwan), providing introduction to the work of their organizations and social movements, and feedback on the methodological and project development drafts.

This third and final workshop will feature a talk by Melanija Đurović and Boško Savić (Intrinsic) on the development of algorithms in the field of market research, with a particular focus on adjusting sentiment analysis algorithms to languages. Furthermore, the workshop will feature a talk by Marija Katalinić and Bernard Koludrović (Rijeka 2020 – European Capital of Culture / RiHub) on the topic of Citizens’ Council, which was developed as a part of Rijeka 2020 – ECoC for purposes of deliberating and grading citizens’ urban, cultural and ecological projects.
