D-Agree: Crowd Discussion Support System Based on Automated Facilitation Agent
Large-scale online discussion platforms are receiving great attention as potential next-generation methods for smart democratic citizen platforms. One of the studies clarified the critical problem faced by human facilitators caused by the difficulty of facilitating large-scale online discussions. In this demonstration, we present our current implementation of D-agree, a crowd-scale discussion support system based on an automated facilitation agent. We conducted a large-scale social experiment with Nagoya local government. The results demonstrate that the agent worked well compared with human facilitators.
