The link between populism and software for domain experts

The big theme of politics in the EU and US at the moment is populism – which basically means, we don’t trust the people who lead us – and we’re looking for a leader which seems to think more like we do – and we’re feeling pretty defensive and angry. So we vote for Donald Trump or to turn our back on the EU.

Why don’t we trust the people who govern us? Because we don’t think our society works. People can’t find jobs, people have less money than they used to, elements of our society seem less reliable than we would like – including whether our children will be able to find jobs.

These are precisely the kind of problems which Software for Domain Experts attacks. We provide a toolkit to show how software can be built which helps the relevant experts to make better decisions, have a better understanding of the world around them, and continually learn.
