Encyclopedia supports Reader-Bias

Dienstag, 20. Juni 2017 - 13:32


Infogalactic plans to solve the structural problems of a community-edited online encyclopedia through objectivity, proven game design principles, and a sophisticated series of algorithms. Currently in an operational Phase One, the Planetary Knowledge Core has a five-phase Roadmap that its founders claim will eliminate edit warring, significantly improve accuracy, neutralize vandalism and other forms of griefing, and render all forms of political bias on the part of administrators and editors irrelevant….

Infogalactic’s anti-bias architecture will permit users to select their preferred perspective and automatically see the version of the subject page that is closest to it based on a series of algorithms utilizing three variables, Relativity, Reliability, and Notability. This means a supporter of Hillary Clinton will see a different version of the current Donald Trump page than a Donald Trump supporter will, as both users will see the version of the page that was most recently edited by editors with perspective ratings similar to his own.

This is orwellian: The wikipedia clone Infogalactic runs with an algorithm that adapts articles to the bias of the reader. A bias architecture is called “anti-bias architecture”.

War is peace, Freedom is slavery, Ignorance is strength, Bias is anti-bias.
