Trust production with technology
A number of global technology infrastructures have taken up the task of fostering cooperation among strangers on a planetary scale by providing various trust-related services, such as reputation management (platforms), trust minimization (blockchains), or the reduction of future uncertainties (AI systems).
Such development is a response to the lack of better institutional alternatives, and the failure of existing supranational frameworks to coordinate human cooperation across various geographic, cultural, linguistic, social, political, religious divisions.
Such technical trust infrastructures need to be trustworthy to fulfill their intended functions. Yet, it is clear that we cannot be confident in these technical trust production approaches.
