With so much information out there, there is still no place on the web to get a truly unbiased opinion. Here comes theMind - 🧠 the world's "hive" mind - a platform for Opinion Crowdsourcing, a community of anonymous users, that ask & answer random open questions and provide opinions.
Ask the world anything anonymously, give your insight on any topic or simply see what the world thinks - theMind has it all.
theMind taps into the Wisdom of the Crowd using crowdsourcing, text clustering, data visualization and Machine Learning to analyze opinions - presenting them in "dynamic infographics". This collective opinion can change our lives forever and make us understand what people truly want and think.
Are you ready to plug into the human universal wisdom?

Rules of theMind
Diversity of Opinions
What: All questions need to be distributed to randomly selected users. Their interests, friendships or preferences should not be taken into consideration. This is somewhat counterintuitive, but this way people answering will be different enough and will bring wisdom from different perspectives.
How: theMind is distributing questions randomly without regard to user’s interests. theMind is not building a social network. In fact you could argue that theMind is the anti-Social network. theMind consists of Neurons. Anonymous people from diverse backgrounds answering diverse questions.
What: People’s opinions should not be directly influenced by opinions of people around them.
How: Users (or Neurons as we call them) should not be able to see other answers before providing their own independent opinion. If the user has seen other answers, they will not be able to provide their own opinion to that particular question anymore.
Additionally, to maintain independence and lack of bias in answers, users cannot react to other answers — neither by replying nor by “liking” them.
What: This is a tough one. In essence, it means that there is no central authority that decides, that some answers are more important than others.
How: All opinions, no matter how “ridiculous” are taken into consideration of theMind algorithm (theMind Thinking Process).
The only exception to this rule is moderation — no hate or abusive speech or sales/spam is allowed. Moderation is a must, since most of anonymous systems attract haters, trolls and spammers because of their seeming lack of personal responsibility. In order to make the moderation as natural to the wisdom of the crowds dynamics as possible, theMind moderation tools allow the crowd itself to participate in moderation and in “cleaning up the garbage”.
What: All of the above rules are useless unless we can aggregate the opinions into one coherent picture.
How: theMind aggregates all opinions into one picture using text analytics, Machine Learning and Data Visualization. To make things even more interesting, theMind will use crowdsourcing games to engage the community into analyzing the questions and the answers and improving the aggregation mechanism.
