Distribution system for crisis situations

About the project:

This project creates an ethical and legally robust digital system for the distribution of strategic materials during crises. In peaceful times it will monitor supply and demand and provide an early warning of an impending crisis. The system will be based on algorithmic game theory and optimization, and will support such independent behavior of actors, that will be beneficial for awide range of actors and ethical, at the same time. The advantages of the new system will besocietal happiness, protection of small actors, support of cooperation, prevention of unbearable price increases and protection of both, producers and sellers. The legal framework of the operation and of implementation of the ethical rules, and protection of all data will also be addressed.
