Supporting participatory policy making with the use of new technologies
The combination of 1) super Artificial Intelligence (sAI), 2) Virtual Reality (VR), 3) a detailed Immersive Interactive Experience (IIE) and 3) Serious Gaming (SG) could help governments to develop and check with citizens the best policy options possible to shape their preferable future scenario. IIE can offer a feeling of being totally immersed in a virtual environment, disconnected from “real” reality, but with the capability to touch and affect the same virtual environment through actions. Serious Gaming is a simulation that has added elements of game, such as a telling a story, tasks/goals, feedback and play.
