Designing a Community Driven Welfare Model

OpenCare orchestrates an open-to-all, community-driven process for addressing care issues, recruiting its participants

from existing communities innovating at the edge of society (among others, hackers, artists, activists, designers).

This entails the complete design cycle of

sensemaking => pick a problem-solution pair => prototype => testing => evaluation at scale

Each step of the cycle will be radically open, with the debate happening online and the fabrication happening in hackerspaces and fully documented.

We release open data and deploy onto them state-of-the art analytical tools for collective intelligence: online ethnography and social network analysis.

We integrate these two approaches into a semantic edges analysis approach.
