Consensus Machine: WINWIN

Consensus and compromise are essential for a democracy to work. After all, we can’t all get what we want. But a politician who makes compromises is often branded as a  weakling, and in these polarised times, it’s hard to reach consensus. Take the debate about climate change or the European Union: from their entrenched positions, supporters and opponents lob appalling insults at each other. We humans tend to be led by our emotions, a problem computers don’t face. That’s a win-win! Test in our museum the algoritme that helps to overwin the distance between opponents.
