The study will reveal one of the most burning questions of the field of e-governance and edemocracy, the question of the Center for Collective Intelligence of MTI, namely How can people and computers be connected so that—collectively—they act more intelligently than any person, group, or computer has ever done before? Is this possible at all? In the study it will be highlighted which are the neuropsychological effects of human to human communication compared to people and computers. Whether this latter is ever able to substitute personal face to face interactions. Are people more satisfied with electronic services where there is an artificial system in front of them? Which kind of psychological impact does it have on political behaviour and especially participation? Does it really encourage to be more active citizens? Or on the contrary it even deters? Which are the criterias of that? And finally in order to be able to answer these questions we should trace this back to the very original question of what is the real function of communication in human society?
