We are out to build the best resource of canonical knowledge.

Golden logo

A platform for processing and compiling knowledge.

Frictionless tools to compile knowledge

Golden is building an interface to compile and comprehend knowledge. Frictionless editing, enhanced fact validation systems, transparent version histories and topic tracking.

A new standard for evidence

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.

Translating between digital information and human knowledge

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.
