Platforms like Facebook and Google have clearly shown to be profiting from a model that reinforces the believes of each of its users.
Can a profitable business model be developed that allows technology to open people’s minds to other viewpoints?
I would be willing to pay a subscription for a service that explicitly exposes me to a mix of other viewpoints. I guess the question is how it would select those alternative viewpoints for me to consider and avoid other biases.
In addition, I am not sure whether it could work as a business model. I would expect humans to be naturally inclined towards their own viewpoints and not those of others. So it does not seem a compelling value proposition for its users unfortunately…
