Some fear that algorithms will be the gravediggers of democracy. Others claim that "data democracy" will be more representative than any other model of democracy in human history and that the ballot box will soon be a relic of the past when our opinion may be automatically solicited thousands of times every day and experts will decide better than political parties. Pessimists will rightly ask why call this device democracy.


Daniel Innerarity will talk to us in his conference about the big questions of the coming years: how to ensure the validity of democratic values in new technological environments that could put them at risk but whose advantages it does not seem very intelligent to renounce.
