Reboot Democracy Lecture Series presents The Civic Bargain: How Democracy Survives

Join the Burnes Center for Social Change at Northeastern University and its partner project The GovLab as we talk with innovative designers, thinkers, and changemakers from around the world working to “do democracy” differently.

We will explore how machine learning, natural language processing, generative AI, can enable more participatory and inclusive ways of solving problems and strengthen our ability to collaborate in governing ourselves.

Through online and in-person conversations with pioneers working to democratize power in governments, schools and workplaces, these conversations aim to address how to use new technologies to strengthen democracy.

This lecture series is part of the Burnes Center and GovLab’s program on Rebooting Democracy in the Age of AI.
