Brexit? Trump? We all thought these were unlikely events. Turns out we don’t know our contexts as well as we’d like to think, nor do we listen to opinions that differ from our own that much.Poli is a service that connects you to people with different political opinions, to discuss a topic and facilitates that dialog. It helps people enlarge their understanding of public issues, and check their own assumptions against those of fellow citizens, creating the healthy and robust public debate we need, to demand and help build better solutions.

HOW IT WORKS
Using a mobile app you can follow and learn about important topics and get matched to someone to discuss these via chat. Poli’s chatbot provides you with prompts to keep the conversation flowing. It measures the conversation rhythm and underlying emotions, intervening when necessary or by request.
BEHIND THE SCENES
It also keeps track of nearby events related to what you’ve been discussing - bringing the dialog back into public space.
When you’re done, just press Pay and the money is sent to the Fair Speaker service, that then distributes it to the artists.
A very small fee is retained by Fair Speaker to cover operational costs and keep the service sustainable.
Additionally you can connect the service to your twitter account, so that every time you donate a tweet is sent out saying how much you donated and to what artist. This helps the service reach more people, while making you look good at the same time.
Enjoy your music. Be fair to the ones who made it.
