Hi Keith, I am a graduate student at the University of Illinois studying artificial intelligence. I have always wanted to be involved in the Forward party and help bring us closer to a UBI. A few other students and I have been working on a prototype and designs for an extension to the citizenship portal for the forward party. Basically, it is a way to interface with the government using AI to outline/generate policies and collect data such as health outcomes, economic/social, and personal outcomes, etc. It has a chatbot that people can interact with as their government representative for the Forwardist Party through their citizenship portal where you can directly influence policymaking and the platform of the Forwardist party. We thought this would be an excellent addition to solely relying on listening sessions and surveys to gather public opinion on what would be a forward policy, instead relying on data and allowing the people to have a way to directly interface with the government. I would love to meet and discuss with you on the direction of this project and if it would be something that would be helpful. Right now we titled it policy web but of course, we are open and it is at the early stages of development currently.
