Unchecked information pollution threatens human progress.
Technology products to filter unassessed or distrusted sources automatically.
Trust management services to qualify trusted sources.
An efficient way to filter out false and anonymous information so we can trust what we consume.
Trusted Origins aims to help create and preserve a healthy information environment, one free of false claims and intentional deceptions. For more than a decade, the Internet and public media have become increasingly polluted with lies and disinformation. Russia, China, North Korea and other actors, have weaponized fake information by targeting it to people who have no easy way to avoid it. People now realize how manipulators use Twitter and Facebook to generate thousands of lies that bombard millions immediately and repetitively. The amount of deceptive information has grown exponentially. No existing company will stop it. The glut of toxic media has a chilling effect on social discourse as people tune out to escape to the extent that many people have stopped following the news and social media altogether. Trusted Origins considers information to be in one of the following categories:
We make it easy for real, honest people to create and endorse factual articles and then filter out bogus information so it never reaches readers who opt for filtering.
Our viewer technology enables users to specify a level of trustworthiness to pass through its filters. Users can specify to filter articles from unassessed or distrusted origins.
We allow consumers to filter out all information from unassessed or distrusted sources automatically. Our product effectively adds a layer of trustworthiness to the Internet so that humanity can resume progress based on facts.
Once the public loses confidence in information, democracy becomes paralyzed and knowledge loses its power to enable progress. Given today’s challenges, we cannot survive and advance without a trusted sphere of information.
Our trustworthiness reputation management service enables communities of writers, publishers and readers to adopt trustworthiness reputation protocols that we independently operate for them. Our reputation management service offers an authenticated human identity credential as a basis for blocking bots. Shills and trolls who cannot satisfy challenges to their honesty and truthfulness become known as distrusted. Authors who want to build and leverage outstanding reputations for honesty and trustworthiness should see real value in standing out and above Internet noise.
We at Trusted Origins aim to reboot the Internet atop our platform for Communities of Trust. Our platform combines three ideas that can bring an end to toxic information on the Internet and launch a new area of trusted interactions:
- We block bots, trolls, shills and bullies from polluting our shared information environment
- We enable trusted individuals to create and share products that are honest and civil
- We enable organizations to create, govern and profit from their specialized Communities of Trust (COTs)
Communities of Trust
A Community of Trust (COT) provides a safe information space free of toxic information. We anticipate that many communities of trust will form around multiple domains.
Disinformation Resistance Community
Trusted Origins' first community of trust is the Disinformation Resistance Community. This community of trust is dedicated to ferreting out bogus information and its purveyors.DRC Site
Our Trusted Origins Corp. (TOC) platform enables other enterprises to stand up their own COTs quickly and efficiently. We offer a range of technology, software and services to help your business launch a Community of Trust. We can host your own branded COT atop our highly scalable platform or, if you prefer, we can help your IT group implement COTs atop your own infrastructure.Learn more
We intend to exploit our COT concept as an engine for organic growth. We will expand and improve the platform for COTs through a software development community of trust. Unlike Open Source Software projects that pay nothing to developers, our COT will compensate developers by sharing earnings attributable to components they develop. We call this model of software development Equity Sharing.Learn more
