02. Targets & Values
Pure & independent Information for deep and effective research empowered by Computer Aided Dialectics.
Facilitation of peace, health, development and prosperity for everybody through Computer Aided Dialectics.
Knowledge vs. Tyranny | Dialectics vs. Universal Validity
When resources are scarce, knowledge is needed to avoid power-abusing gatekeepers and to develop a just system of sharing. Humanity developed the stunning ability to solve nearly all problems by analyzing and describing them precisely and developing together intelligent solutions. Philosophers called this ability over centuries Dialectics.
DIVERSUS developed technical solutions to facilitate Dialectics through computers. People from all over the world can build up a global network of thoughts. DIVERSUS builds a system of research engines for accelerated knowledge building.
This process of collective consideration brings joy and fun to everybody, as every human has the inherited skills to participate, by talking and expressing their ideas and perceptions.
Character vs. Copy | Difference vs. Redundancy
Todays internet architecture shows some structural weaknesses that generate conformity. Contemporary search engines reward similarity and trigger the creation of redundant information - more and more we find copies instead of original and valuable information.
The DIVERSUS method is describing the Difference between different pieces of information. This approach offers the users to find the most unique information, instead of redundant copies.
This speeds up the knowledge building process, users can identify valuable information more quickly and don’t get tired by walking through and endless sequences of always the same.
Transparency vs. Manipulation | Secret Algorithms vs. Open Source
Many of today's big information providers are hiding their algorithms. Users are easy targets to biased research results. Their search for information is used for political or commercial manipulation.
DIVERSUS is a genuine open source project. Search algorithms and the entire database are totally transparent.
Everybody is invited to adjust his algorithm or even develop his own search engine based on the Dialectical Protocol for Accelerated Knowledge Building of DIVERSUS.
we’ll done formalizing the many complex thoughts into such a video! Now I look forward to discussions to align on the best path forward for the product. I remain passionate about the idea of enabling a global discussion based on dialectic expression and learning, and think there are some amazing core ideas that need to be the focus of our next steps.
"Objective" line of thought: a network that is cross-plattform, open source and decentral with the possibility for sharing searching and contributing information in textual, pictorial or audiovisual form. "Emotional" line of thought: non-profit, free platform for discussing inspiring ideas truly interested in and devoted to the power of rational harmonization gaining dialectic knowledge, escaping dogmatism and filter bubbles
how do you feel about CAD computer aided dialectics? The truth is, we will not be able to exclude ai technology. Noone wants to code algorithm when a machine can go better. Twitter i. É. is human generated content. But the machine makes it more valuable.
Never stop working
a high-perfomance dialectical engine that integrates divers perspectives on diversus subjects of discussion by evolving them in a computer-aided, accelerated manner. We already entered a new era of digital debating but still missing the adequate means at hand to express, discuss and solve contemporay problems. DIVERSUS fills that gap and even more: it creates new potentials and experiences in our relation to a hypercomplex world. DIVERSUS reduces complexity to the essentials in order to built up new complexity at the same time - but oriented towards human needs, problems and solutions, opinons, ideas and feelings. In this sense it is kind of a digital extension of our collective thinking, a medium of improved knowledge building, or even a digitized mind. The traditional symbol for a infinite information process like this is simply a circle or the sign for infinity. One could also thinkg of a spiral or helix t stress the temporal trajectory. But one should keep in mind that David Eggers wrote a bestseller in 2013 about a valley-based global techcompany that developed into a new form of totalitarism, and the Titel of this book simply goes: the circle. Resemblances could be missleading or counterproductive
