Golden is building an interface to compile and comprehend knowledge. Frictionless editing, enhanced fact validation systems, transparent version histories and topic tracking.
Golden will compile deeper evidence to validate claims and verify knowledge. High-resolution citations and bibliometrics will allow users to determine the provenance of information and evaluate source credibility.
Golden draws on the strengths of both humans and machines. Statistical models and and heuristic algorithms will handle repetitive work and automate the process of gathering knowledge.
Our team is comprised of engineers and designers based in San Francisco.
