Kout wants to become the most distributed (central) node in the networks shaping public discussions. We believe these networks are highly benefitted with the open data revolution. The missing link though, is how to reach the different actors in the network effectively, and create the necessarily impact, to improve public decision-making. Kout does this by nesting itself in between the content creators on the web, and in between different social media. The platform will deliver state-of-the-art data interfaces to embed and customize data intelligence. But one interface does not say all. The backlink from the interface will deliver users (and payed users) a better and more complete picture about a topical discussion. By doing so, Kout delivers a priming and campaigning tool, which is further enriched with lobbying and intelligence tools, in a social media environment.

Kout wants to become the most distributed (central) node in the networks shaping public discussions. We believe these networks are highly benefitted with the open data revolution. The missing link though, is how to reach the different actors in the network effectively, and create the necessarily impact, to improve public decision-making. Kout does this by nesting itself in between the content creators on the web, and in between different social media. The platform will deliver state-of-the-art data interfaces to embed and customize data intelligence. But one interface does not say all. The backlink from the interface will deliver users (and payed users) a better and more complete picture about a topical discussion. By doing so, Kout delivers a priming and campaigning tool, which is further enriched with lobbying and intelligence tools, in a social media environment.
Technically we deliver big data applications that creators can use to enhance their own content and sites. We develop an algorithm to select all the content relevant to a specific discussion, and build a flexible and interactive set of "tools" (visualizations, graphs, diagrams, etc) to be embedded and linked everywhere. Even more, the API's can be profiled (personalized) by end-users on the Kout platform. This way we are able to create powerful big data insights to corporations, to institutions and to civil society actors.
In this sweep we have created a more level-playing field for public discussions, we diminish the knowledge-gap between corporate and civil society, and stop the feedback loop of information online, so user don't metaphorically; “dig themselves deeper into their own perspectives” (Filter Bubble effect, 2015). Because of the centrality of Kout, users from isolated opinion communities (the polarized web) meet again to share, coerce and find consensus about discussion topics.
