Humane Engineering and Design

toward Human Collective Super-Intelligence





The systems we have are perfectly designed for the results we're getting.

We build Humane Decision Support Systems for Distributed Organisations.




























Design Shared

Community Values


How can we identify community principles and values

if we don't start with identifying our own?

Design with groups, not for groups.
















Humane

By Design


You control your data.

You control the algorithms.

Find something you need.






















Crowdsource Ideas

Socialise Decisions

Reward Results


Faster more optimal group decisions

and community controlled reward distribution

across remote distributed teams.

We get the maximum reward to the best

contributions to community value.


















Naturally

Efficient


Distributed individuals that

who are engaged in deep work,

execute against complex problems more effectively.

We build teams that execute tangible results.















We help organisations through the volatile times ahead with


community controlled reward systems

provided through

humane software and ethics workshops.

Your Community Values.









Case Study: Believably Weighted Idea Meritocracy

Ray Dalio makes the business case for using radical transparency and algorithmic decision-making to create an idea meritocracy - These strategies helped Dalio create the world's most successful hedge fund through the power of data-driven group decision-making.







The problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which we created them.

Project Catalyst

Project Catalyst strives to provide a safe and lively environment to explore the highest potential of human collaboration. Project Catalyst offers a unique opportunity to collectively build human co-intelligence projects outside of typically used funding modes.


01. Experiment Index

E00. SWARM

Experiment 00 - Unstructured Swarming

Brainstorm Meets flash Mob.

We found swarm cooperation and emergent behaviours in remote-only whiteboard collaboration with no predefined authoritative or meeting structure in groups under eight. members.

Findings:

Real-time cooperative design rapidly, generates ideas and peer reviews. Projects in early stage greatly benefit from synchronous, super-high-bandwidth direct feedback and idea growth.

The experience was cognitively and socially fatiguing for the members who required full concentration. Swarms very rarely suit large sizes without fragmentation. It is a highly divergent system and not useful for building toward a predefined outcome.

Released:

Adagov.org is proud to help start, continue to be a part of and support the Swarm Community.

E01. LIBRARY

Experiment 01 - Data Library

Co-operative Library for Links

We tried to see how a cooperative resource gathering and modification would work, but the only way to announce its development if not through centralised authority is through advertising.

Findings:

We built a list of community resources and tools which we try to keep up to date, filtered and curated as a service to the Project Catalyst community.

We open-source curate for community safety and trust, but it remains hard to connect people to yet another fragmented resource online without having authoritative structures for attention and trust.

Released:

A high growth rate means the only way to notify new members about the service is to advertise periodically on social media channels. The resource became yet another dislocated resource.

E02. HIVE

Experiment 02 - Data Indexing

Swarm with Data Indexing and Connectivity

A structured idea management experience, community owned and operated with clean open data, fluid-ideation, high quality proposals, scalable community evaluation and cross assessment with focus on transparency.

In progress:

OPEN CATALYST DATA

Our current platform is inflexible to the speeds we need to operate at. Our design is fast, beautiful and data-driven. Currently the data layer has been built with the user interface in beta.

CONVERSATIONAL UX

Software competes for our attention, strengthens negative emotions and creates anxiety. Conversational UX finds human connection.

COMMUNITY LANDING

If you're thinking about starting with Project Catalyst this resource aims to provide some basic steps along Catalyst's churning repository.

CATALYST

Project Catalyst is a series of experiments which seeks to generate the highest levels of community innovation. Our community self-determines priorities for growth.

CARDANO

Cardano is a blockchain platform for changemakers, innovators, and visionaries, with the capability required to create possibility and bring about positive global change.

IDEASCALE

Training wheels for collaborative governance for the Cardano network. Based on idea management technology from the 90's it provides a place for proposers to enter their ideas.
