Sense Collective presents:
Resilient smart-societies will need intelligent networks that prioritize digital self-ownership and collective intelligence for sustainable data and knowledge-based wealth creation.
TOTEM is an operating system for creating shared incentive networks and building knowledge and insight markets from collective intelligence resources where everyone who participates has a place in the value chain.
TOTEM is a Software Design Kit (SDK) for social computing, for creating collaborative sensemaking and collective intelligence infrastructure.
With TOTEM's toolkit of modular components, and the community-supported library and search engine, built using the Stellar-IPFS Constellation and Pinning Module, with integrations to Cardstack's Tally Equitable Revenue Sharing protocol, and using Sense Collective's own data serialization protocol for interoperable representation of cross-token signature hashes, we can finally realize the exponential and cumulative benefits of our collective intelligence.
Insights derived from making public data structured, accessible, and easily understood are valuable on their own. They are made exponentially more valuable when these insights are part of a cumulative knowledge and revenue sharing ecosystem, with granular attribution, i.e TOTEM.
TOTEM SDK: Designing Collectivity
We will deliver low-cost, user-friendly identity management, data intelligence services, and AI decision support systems, making internet users the owners of their data and stakeholders in the future of collective intelligence resources and value streams.
In short, fair distribution of gains from collective means towards equitable and sustainable ends.
Own your identity
Own your data
Build collective intelligence
Build better digital ecosystems
Connecting place, people, knowledge, and value. Providing creators and seekers with a knowledge flow design system that computes and optimizes, human, social, and natural capital.
(see descriptions of components below)
Tokenization of information flows.
Tokenization of value and currency flows that address capital, intangibles and leverage functions through identity, rights, and affordances.
The FIAT(peg) token is for establishing a token exchange and financial market at and across the TOTEM boundary.
A system of tokens that together signals demand, protects against malicious actors and directs flows of value.
Curating knowledge artifacts using mechanism design, game theory and incentives, and risk management.
Impact tokens are functional means of evaluating the performance of the various types of cooperative knowledge work from the perspective of individual and mutual goal realization.
TOTEM / Identity Manager
Self Sovereignty and specification of arbitrary person-level properties, preferences, and goals for access to contextual recommendations and decision support from collective intelligence resources.
TOTEM provides an initially simple system where people can capture their digital footprint, their thoughts and ideas, their digital artifacts and their work, and use the tools currently available to turn this information into insight both individually and in a network.
Sort by Context
Our personal data is the most valuable asset we can own yet we do not own it in any meaningful sense. When we take possession of this data and use it to create context in networks we create an emergent field of collective intelligence. And in a constantly shifting world, this is the most valuable product that we can collectively produce to improve our lives both materially and personally.
Bridges and Gaps
We believe that such a tool, made available to the public, would begin to deliver positive results within a very short time period and with a comparatively limited amount of users. 50k people connected and thinking and doing together, sharing knowledge and insight and building topic-specific channels of knowledge will help each of those 50k members discover the things that are missing from their knowledge base, and where they can extend their sphere of influence.
