The 2030s see the advent of a French society more profoundly transformed than it seems. The personalisation of experiences, the rise of communities and the search for social justice are at the heart of public innovation.
In this specific context appears the public plurialgorithmics law, supported by an empathetic State, rather than strategic. Plurialgorithmics is a radical shift: for the same public action or decision, there is no more one, but a multitude of algorithms adapted to the different publics that may be affected or impacted.
Each and every one can choose their algorithmic regime, according to their community, their profile, even discrimination they may consider suffering from. Each algorithm behaves differently depending on the user’s profile and adapts its calculation mode according to matters of gender, ethnic group, sexual orientation, citizenship status or even handicap. If the modes of calculation and of decision are different from one person to the other, public services, however, stay available to everyone.
The stake is now to choose the ‘good’ system: a public algorithm is now presented under all its variations so that the user can choose the most appropriate one in regard to their personal situation. As a mirroring effect, the algorithm – now plural – makes visible the necessity to adapt and deconstruct some public measures in front of the inherent difficulties met by the communities using them.
