Track Record

We pride ourself to be world leaders in developing Online Deliberation systems, otherwise known as large-scale argumentation systems. Our works on argumentation-based collaborative decision making technologies (Iandoli 2014, 2016) have been successfully tested in large-scale online deliberation experiments. These works have been agenda setting in the Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) community to define a roadmap for future research on collective intelligence (De Liddo and Buckingham Shum 2010, Convertino 2015, Schuler 2018).

In the last 10 years we have devised a suit of discourse-based technologies which have been used by over 13K people, in 20 countries, and by 120 community groups in contexts such as health, education, market research and public policy.
