Matt and Marting will be talking about 38Deputies, which is aimed at helping make the voting process easier. With 119 candidates in the upcoming election, and a maximum of 38 votes to cast, there are a number of challenges in this first run of Island-Wide Voting; not least, that we identified that both of us are simply too lazy to sift through multiple sources of information for each candidate, and read through over one hundred manifestos, coming to a reasonable conclusion on who the best choices are. We imagined that this is a common problem for other people, and we wanted to help make sure people had an easier time of deciding on their candidates, and that they chose candidates that really represented them. It is not a replacement to individual investigation and decision making, but an aid, matching users to the candidates that our algorithm believes suits them the most, based on their choices on key issues.
Their solution was to be able to use a site that would be able to aggregate a list of the candidates that align with individual views on key issues, while making information about the candidates easy to read, access, and filter; ultimately, providing us an aid to allowing the public, to choose the candidates that best suit them.
Matt will take a deep dive into the world of electronics and programming, talking about his journey of making a digital music pad and the tech behind it.
Track 3: Innovation & Creativity: Hear from local disrupters and creators who are thinking differently about challenges ahead. Build your knowledge by trying out some new tools and tips of how to work in new ways, take a human-centric approach and develop new ways of thinking.
