The Social Sensemaker

Intelligence for the distributed web

The Social Sensemaker enables neighbourhoods to add, process, and store metadata. These metadata become actionable insights, such that a neighbourhood can organize and curate information generated within it.

Instead of inheriting a set of reactions from platforms, design these and other metrics to organize group experience. Use emojis and other gestures to create actually meaningful engagement, whether it’s spotting disinformation, collecting “vouches”, tagging based on intention, or organizing feeds based on group preference.

The Sensemaker scrapes EntryTypes from Holochain apps, or data sets generated in other protocols. These are made available for neighbours to play around with! Apps formatted to interact with the Sensemaker make it even easier to modify how a tool behaves via input from the group using it.

Key benefits

Intentional online culture: Communities configure their own cultures and interactional forms locally. Choose...
- media and resources your group convenes around
- subjective inputs and objective measures that apply to these resources
- scoring computations that order these resources into meaningful contexts.

Serverless intelligence: Groups store, use, and share their own data to refine their activities and environments.

P2P validation: Our “trust, but verify” approach is powered by Holochain. Local computation is the only way to perform cost effective social sensemaking on web3.
