AI, big data and the future of democracy

We have just issued a Deutsche Bank Research report on AI, big data and the future of democracy:

How democracies approach this challenge will be a key factor in their performance, given intensifying competition among political systems.

This report offers reflections about societal implications of AI and big data that should not be missed out when the implications of AI are discussed, and it acknowledges that the " EU has become a role model for AI and data regulation" .

Very nice overview of the trends in Europe. 
The document hints to good directions we need to go to.
