WorldBrain - Verifying the Internet


Idea Sketch | Proposal


Idea pitch

We want to lead our society into a future of crowdsourced politics. To make this happen, we have to bring all people on the same level of information.
WorldBrain is a community, which collects and verifies valuable content to answer the complex and controversial questions of our time.

Where will your idea take place?

Our, whole, world

Why does Europe need your idea?

Europe and basically the whole world needs this idea to make the necessary and important debates of our time possible. As a society, we fight on so many levels although a consensus is theoretically possible.
With WorldBrain as foundation, we hope to contribute a big part to world peace in educating people with valid information around day to day controversies and news and conquering misinformation.
The best thing about WorldBrain is, that many of the root-democratic initiatives emerging all over the world, like i.e. Liquid Democracy or Democracy OS (Argentina) can benefit from its first step - the collaboration tool for research.

What is your impact?

We want to contribute our part to make our societies more peaceful through better information and better politics.
With WorldBrain, we want to lay the foundation and execute the new era of democracy.
We already know, that we will dedicate our lives to make this vision come true.
Our goal is to enhance humanity beyond its currently used potential and make this place we only call home a real home - for everyone.
The least acceptable success would be to build up the verification service of WorldBrain to support other root-democratic initiatives like the "Liquid Democracy"-movement with an educated and well informed crowd.

How do you get there?

How we want to achieve the goal of restructuring democracy is readable in detail on
1. Bring people to a mutually agreed consensus of verified and relevant content for controversial and complex topics of our time. This will be reached with Worldbrain - Collaborated Internet Research.
2. Using other existing solutions (i.e. Liquid Democracy) or building our own debating software to come to the best possible outcome for the most important questions of our time.
3. Using the infrastructure as an endlessly iterated proof of concept for the architecture for a restructure of our political systems.
