Short Description: 

We bring light to the shadows by decentralizing knowledge, linking, and the page experience. We are developing a human-AI trained fake news detection tool and truthiness score that aggregates all the publicly available information about the facts. Our goal is to reduce the average response time to false news from 13 hours to minutes utilizing Frontier technologies including distributed ledger technology, machine learning, and extended reality,

Bridgit decentralizes linking so that users can create smart links on any page that connects information on an idea-by-idea basis. Bridgit intends to make the web much more like the human brain with respect to its connectedness. Bridgit can, in fact, be thought of as a multi-level extension or augmentation of the brain, individually and collectively. Rather than pages, the ideas on pages are the nodes and are directly connected in a fitting manner. A page can contain hundreds or more ideas, each of which is a highly specific opportunity to interact around the user’s attention. Each idea can, in turn, have tens if not hundreds of connections. Thus, a single web page could easily aggregate a thousand connections and new interactions that were previously impossible.

Two of Bridgit's key objectives are:
* Provide 360 Contextual View (including Supporting and Conflicting bridges) for any idea on any page to enable Discernment of what is Fake and what is True
* Provide Data-Safe, Intuitive, and Unobtrusive Discovery of Trustworthy Information Orders of Magnitude Faster than Search
