Welcome to the prototype for the aiki atheneum. An atheneum is a library or place of study.
Technically speaking, the aiki atheneum is collaborative curation and contextualization from a research database around a given topic. It allows collaborators to publish shared narratives from a shared archive and curate that archive into deep contextualization into what we call ‘context cubbies’.
As aiki.wiki launches and grows, it publishes it’s outcomes via the atheneum which can be discovered as search topics in the library.
The atheneum is collaborative like Wikipedia, but with a few core exceptions. The atheneum is a library, not an encyclopedia – and the atheneum’s permissions to curate, while collaborative, is by invitation only.
Aiki is a Japanese word from Budo, or ´war art´ and refers to a ‘great harmony’ that is available in a battle or conflict.
A wiki is a platform for collaborative editing.
‘aiki.wiki ™’ is a platform for online collaborative consensus building and publishing.
The full platform has two distinct functions.
- aiki wiki is a unique online discussion forum for collaborative consensus building.
- aiki atheneum is the library for publishing conclusions hard won from consensus building
The entire platform is governed by “The six petals of the Ikea”, or rules for engagement.
What makes aiki.wiki unique as wiki software is it’s unique algorithm for gamification around a discussion topic which rewards editing permissions based on collaborative behaviors.
aiki wiki: resolution for the conflict of idea
Introducing subtle gamification, aiki wiki provides three unique arenas which manage the three types of discussion around a topic.
- aiki wiki forms a rational consensus in the Arena of the King which manages critical discussions emerging in the topic.
- Opinion, commentary, or any type of creative discussion emerges within the Arena of the People.
- Open questions emerging in the topic become governed inside the Arena of Inquiry.
aiki wiki’s algorithm then identifies and rewards editing permissions to participants based on their behaviors and consistency within any topic discussed.
aiki.wiki is fun.
It’s like taking the best of Wikipedia and the best of Reddit and fusing them into a holistic and elegant platform for publishing and discussion engineering without competing with either of them.
It creates new methods for online engagement which previously never existed, allowing for new measurements and outcomes.
aiki.wiki’s unique discussion algorithm will evolve to be customizable for online encyclopedias such as Wikipedia, social networks and any publisher that seek to resolve or solve critical issues that require a trusted rational consensus and benefit from large scale collective participation.
The prototype for aiki wiki’s discussion arena is currently in development.
We expect to publish the prototype in 2017.
We have successfully processed one test discussion, which will be re-coding the prototype over the next coming months.
