And you call yourself a "bit of a fabulist"!  If anything, you may be understating the potential impact of AI, at least in the area of enhancing democracy and trust-building.  AI's use in citizen engagement and empowerment will scale far beyond "facilitation, information gathering, consensus building and idea generation" in carefully-managed citizen assemblies.  Some combination of AI and augmented reality might provide both a greater sense of real, direct engagement for voters as well as better insights for government representatives and agencies.

Beyond the potential advantages of business-government collaboration, including researchers and practitioners in the circle would enhance this approach.  Further, the process of collaboration is a science itself.

I volunteer for such an effort.
