DIStributed Collaborative Information PLatform.
We work from the conviction that together we can evolve to finding the solutions that contribute to a prosperous society for everyone.
Society of today and tomorrow
A changing society, technological innovations. With issues such as privacy, ethics and trust. Discipl works on solutions that contribute to an answer to these issues. From a set of coherent principles. Solutions that contribute to a prosperous society for today and tomorrow. Read more…
Smart building blocks
Technological solutions based on Discipl architecture principles are based on the concept of ‘User Needs First’. From shared values as laid down by law. On the way to a digital infrastructure ready for the future, where users are facilitated with real-time information. With building blocks that meet actual needs of today. Read more…
Discipl collaborates with governments, scientific organizations and other expert partners. Together we investigate usecases. We invite public and private parties to help build public services, within an open source ecosystem and according to Discipl principles. Read more…
Pilots, projects and products
Discipl works on pilots and practices in projects.
Compassion By Design – User needs first
Noncontroversial user needs are the main organising principle within Discipl. This ensures a proper focus on finding solutions that work for all. Through ONFAS and FLINT (Law as Code) matching of needs with solutions attending to these needs following established laws is possible in a generic and more automated yet ethical way.
Attending to needs – The Request App
With a request app people can identify and express their needs, match them with known solutions that attend to them, celebrate matches, mourn the gap when there seems to be no solution and engage with that conflict.
Nonviolent Collaboration – Convergent Facilitation
If attending to needs following established solutions does not suffice, there’s a conflict to engage with through nonviolent collaboration. We experiment with methods like convergent facilitation and develop supportive tools for this.
Privacy By Design and Self Sovereign Identity is not enough. Users should stay anonymous while all other information should be open and transparent as much as possible.
Data minimalisation – Waardepapieren
Anonymous transparency focuses on minimalisation of user information, bringing us to a different way of setting up services. For example services for obtaining official proofs from municipalities. The tricky part is how to let these services be used for good and protect people from oppression. Common Ground embraced the Discipl Waardepapieren project taking it further.
Open Free Knowledge – Needs based matching
Anonymous transparency focuses on maximization of free availability of all information that can help attend to needs. Laws, code, solutions, they all should be entirely open and free. This ensures optimal needs based matching of needs to solutions that work for all. For example matching education needs to courses, benefits, career support etc.
