Our Mission

New Knowledge is on a mission to defend public discourse.

To that end, we build products that repair online communities, defend them against manipulation, and help them communicate more authentically. We also support Data for Democracy, a community of volunteer technologists collaborating on social impact projects.

Defending public discourse is a big mission, and we can't do it alone. That's why we started a global community of over 2,000 passionate technologists, researchers, and data scientists collaborating on social impact projects. We believe that technology is an incredibly powerful influence on our society, and building it comes with enormous responsibility. When D4D volunteers donate their expertise and directly participate in improving their communities, they see first-hand the impact of their tools they build, and take that experience back to work. It's our hope that, ultimately, this will embed a culture of service, respect, and accountability in the technology industry.

We proudly donate our technology to the community's volunteer projects, and collaborate with D4D researchers to identify and understand disinformation online.
