Dialoguem! Sociophysical Modelling, Data Analysis, and Visualization for Augmented Deliberation
How can physical modeling, data analysis, and data visualization facilitate collective decision-making?
Dialoguem is a project by Heurística in collaboration with UBICS (University of Barcelona Institute of Complex Systems) aimed at exploring the potential of a socio-physical approach to improve collective decision-making processes. Specifically, to understand what cognitive biases and other factors affect the evolution of opinions in group dynamics and to develop situated and participatory socio-technical supports for facilitation. In this workshop, we will test how a real-time data collection, analysis, and visualization environment, based on socio-physical modeling, can facilitate deliberation by visualizing biases and misunderstandings.
