Abstract

Algorithmic Behavioral Science:
Automated Discovery of Human Biases

Nation-States are dying. They will be replaced by something else. We don’t know what yet. And we’re not ready for the shift.

Technologies like the Internet and Blockchain will be the culprit. This is not the first time it has happened. Every time new communication technologies emerge, the political order is overhauled.
What happened in the past? How, specifically, will Nation-States end this time? What will emerge from their ashes? And, more importantly, how can we steer that in the right direction?
