Over at Agora voting
The first step in implementing a liquid filtering algorithm is to convert this optimality criterion into an objective function. For simplicity we will modify our criterion slightly to
given a fixed number assignments, maximise the effective number of questions answered
which is saying basically the same thing but from the reverse point of view. With ’effective’ we refer to the fact that although voters may not answer a question directly, they can answer it by virtue of having one of their delegates answer it for them.
The post describes a liquid filtering algorithm and the results of running simulations based on random delegation graphs. Read the rest here.
