Prof. Dr. Davide Grossi from Multi-agent systems has been awarded a fellowship at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study.
The project title is “Algorithms for Large-Scale Deliberative Democracy” . With the central research question being: If strong modern democracies need to be digital, how can we make sure that the algorithms powering digital democracy applications really adhere to democratic principles? How can we develop digital democracy algorithms that we can trust to be truly democratic?
The NIAS Fellowship allows Davide Grossi to work on his project for a period of 5 months in the academic year 2022/23. He will become part of a carefully selected community of independent thinkers, in a collaborative environment where the space is created to ask new questions beyond disciplinary boundaries. NIAS Fellows are selected through a highly competitive external review process on the basis of the quality of the research proposal.
The Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study is an intellectual haven for international researchers, writers, journalists and artists to pursue their projects, to work in an interdisciplinary environment and to share their knowledge with society.
