Presense is a platform for the creation and tracking of personal synthetic replicas navigating multiple urban environments in parallel. Acting as a "refractive lens" between the user and their host city, the platform creates personalized predictive models of user activity and is trained from user interaction in order to deploy and manage their multiple replicas in different cities.
Presense is a platform that processes your behavioral data to create a quantified version of you - the predicted SELF. The Predicted Self shows you the possible futures in your city that are likely going to happen to you in the days ahead.
building the platform Presense highlights the phenomena of predictive self-sensing - a feeling that you experience when you see your computer generated future reflected back to you.
«Based on the predicted self, Presense allows you to create synthetic replicas and deploy them to any distant environment. Presense grants you insight into the multiple lives you might be living somewhere else.
You can subscribe to your synthetic replicas on social media to observe their actions through the feed they generate. Presense creates your own social network - a social multiverse of the self.
You leave digital traces every time you interact with internet services. Just as your personal data is used to give you recommendations, it can be used for making predictions about your future actions.
The platform reflects your patterns of behaviour to the predicted you, while reflecting possible futures back to you. By building the platform Presense highlights the phenomenon of Predictive Self Sensing - a feeling that you experience when you see a computer generated future of yours based on your personal data.
Based on Predicted Self which is acting in your host city the Platform can deploy this model in other cities and create synthetic replicas of yours which will virtually inhabit existing urban environments and live a life on your behalf. You cannot control replicas other than adjusting your behavior, they are equally important.
The platform allows to deploy your predictive models to distant environments by creating synthetic self-replicas in other cities. It will start acting in chosen urban context just as if you would start living there. You can't control your synthetic self-replicas other than by adjusting your own patterns of behaviors and observing the change in their content feed. Presense creates your own social network - a social multiverse of the self.
Social Multiverse of self
Curiosity about life in all its aspects, I think, is still the secret of great creative people.
