Speeches di Jacopo Domenicucci
The digital institutions of trust
It is widely agreed that the digital transition of our societies has consequences in terms of political psychology: the public space of our liberal democracies is suffering from that. Building trust in our institutions and within the civil society is hence a major challenge in a digital society. How to understand this challenge and how to frame a response is controversial. AI-ICTs (Artificial Intelligence and Information and Communication Technologies) are increasingly emerging as new infrastructures for our communal life. But they haven't been designed for a beneficial management of peoples public trust. It is striking how little transparency and normative constraints we are currently putting on the digital infrastructures powering social life. Platform sociality, in particular, regularly betrays its promises to improve our societies, our collective decision-making and the means of political delegation. It rather seems to have divisive, tribal and trust-erosive effects. I reflect on the way various sorts of digital intermediaries have an impact on trust, trying to clarify the trust models currently on offer (e.g. decentralized) and their limits.
