Docet is a network of participants, each with their own unique set of contributions in the form of proofs of knowledge packaged together in categories of their choice. Value for individuals is generated through a rating consensus among eligible participants thereby allowing each participant to convert their contributions into personal assets. These assets provide valuable insights to the overall knowledge base of the individual. Creation of these proofs or showcases of skill, is not limited by format and individuals can choose freely how best to portray their learnings. Research from the fields economics, game development, and psychology have been incorporated in the creation of this proposed network.
Docet’s network has a hierarchal structure which limits participant’s ability to affect change within the network based on their standings in it, vis a vis, a higher-level participant can effect greater change to the standings of others than a lower level participant. The hierarchal n...
Docet is a network of participants, each with their own unique set of contributions in the form of proofs of knowledge packaged together in categories of their choice. Value for individuals is generated through a rating consensus among eligible participants thereby allowing each participant to convert their contributions into personal assets. These assets provide valuable insights to the overall knowledge base of the individual. Creation of these proofs or showcases of skill, is not limited by format and individuals can choose freely how best to portray their learnings. Research from the fields economics, game development, and psychology have been incorporated in the creation of this proposed network.
Docet’s network has a hierarchal structure which limits participant’s ability to affect change within the network based on their standings in it, vis a vis, a higher-level participant can effect greater change to the standings of others than a lower level participant. The hierarchal network as described has weights for each node, the value of which decreases from the topmost level group downwards. For any given node in a group, consensus among each group above it in the network is calculated asynchronously, based on which the next state of the node is determined. The eligibility of affecting the state of the given node is determined by qualifying states possessed by the affecting nodes. Once eligible, state changes suggested for the given node is logged and processed sequentially based on log time at set intervals to calculate consensus of the affecting nodes and the state of the affected node is updated.
The reason why Docet is interesting is that it replicates the need for a higher authority to verify/validate a participant’s learning while simultaneously replacing the dependency on a singular authority for it. By doing so, Docet successfully democratizes the generation of value for individual learning and frees them from any restriction on how they acquire their skills. Human ability is the single most valuable commodity in the world. Today, the internet is used as a tool for organisations to identify efficient ways to target individual spending capacity through advertisements instead of evaluating individual knowledge as a commodity in and of itself. The conversion of individual proofs of knowledge as a consolidated validated asset of all the knowledge and skills one possesses can be used as a personal brand for the individual
