Both @bzee and I got places at SAFE DevCon, yes!

@Seneca I just stumbled on a project from MIT called Gobo which is in the research prototype stage (operational I believe although the server seems to be down).

It seems very relevant, so I’m flagging it in case you were not aware of it.

The idea is that it collects social media and news posts from your chosen sources including your twitter, Facebook feeds and then presents these in a timeline according to a set of AI based filters which you configure, and which are transparent so you can see why a particular item was shown.

This goes beyond Decorum as I understand it - filtering based on Federated quality - but is an obvious next step, to automate the collation and enable individuals to fine tune it, or direct it using a range of parameters (such as gender, rudeness, subject matter, sources).

The server (not working for me just now) is at gobo.social or https://www.media.mit.edu/projects/gobo/overview/

Here’s a very good article by one of the creators:

Hey guys will you be republishing on Alpha 2 on Wednesday? This is one of my favorites.

Also is there any documentation or details on your WoR (web of relevance) innovation?? This is something that could come in really handy for JAMS and other apps as well I’m sure. I’ve been pondering about collaborative filtering, RDF/Linked Data, and what WoR could do for discoverability. Some (from what’s currently available) big plans that will be put into motion soon.

Thanks.


#125

We just did!

For using the WoR 1.0 with your own app(s) you can imagine it (simplified) as a large map of identity/rating pairs. So the uploaders/posters of content that is discovered can be looked up and a threshold rating value can be used to decide whether content will be displayed or not. It is more about spam filtering rather than content personalization, the rating is not an indicator for user appreciation.

It is still vital for personalization because you cannot just trust that metadata of content uploaded by others is correct. One attack vector for JAMS in this regard could be rickrolling music feeds through false metadata. :smiley:


#126

Excellent point! There is a very simple but I think effective incentive for publishing with proper meta data, though the cost/benefit would really have to be weighed. Is there a way to comb over or gain access to WoR 1.0? Also JAMS will be open sourced if there are licensing restrictions for using closed source. I was thinking it could either work in conjunction with other personalization techniques or maybe even modified.

Just some incite on my thoughts for use of WoR as I understand it to work in decorum (please correct me if I’m wrong!) you can select other people in, what is basically a WoT, and they become a sort of filter or curator of content for you. You trust or like their taste in content and by having them in your WoR you see a weighted amount of what they ‘like’ or post? I figured the same could happen in JAMS with seeing a feed or recommendation list of what others in your WoR are listening to.

Glad the wallet is back up! Keep up the great work guys. I’m a huge fan.

hi all

I still have some PDC coin in my wallet at bittrex, but i see it’s nothing worth any more. can i do something with it? is it worth something?

As far as I know the Decorum team are still working away and doing what they can given the current readiness level of the network.

While there is no liquid market for the tokens, I’d expect they’re well worth holding on to for the long term.

Imagine they ended up with a similar valuation to STEEM in 3-5 years time and see whether you think they’re worth holding on to :slight_smile:


#129

You can sell them to me if you’d like


#130

What do you ask in BTC per PDC?


#131

That was mostly in jest


#132

Meh, was hoping to attach a value to PDC again

Went to get my mother flowers for her birthday and saw a SAFE project ad :yum:
