a disruption of collaboration

robert gilpatrick, New Citizens, LLC

The world is like pre-moneyball baseball, full of bias and inefficiency. But, as the world becomes more open and connected, there is no reason why any organization or individual can't be quickly and easily matched with recommendations of potential collaborators, and have their collaborations easily actionable within a game. Millions of missed connections happen everyday that could be game changers, and millions if not billions of data points are unstructured, leading to missed opportunities. New Citizens uses machine learning to find and recommend collaboration matches and crowd sourced content to fuel the game. New Citizens is a disruption of collaboration.
