Smarter policymaking chapter

Government beetleI have now finished my book chapter (PDF) based on my Anticipating 2025 talk about smarter policymaking.

As I see it, the big wins may be better ways of incorporating de-biasing in network media and group decisionmaking, methods of opening up government data for public inspection, automating accountability, tools for combining preferences, tools supporting negotiation, and frameworks helping non-experts to formulate viable policy proposals. There is going to have to be a lot of trial and error on this: we are not smart enough to design emergent social interactions ad hoc. But by 2025 we are going to be a fair bit better than now, and have a decade of hindsight.
