Social Impact Technology

The New Sincerity Innovation Lab is designing technology that advances equity, improving the lives of all Americans.

We believe making the world a better place must include technology. From poverty-alleviation to education, digital media and community development, the New Sincerity Innovation Lab is researching products, apps and web tools that will solve big social problems.

One of the big problems we’re exploring now is artificial intelligence.

The growth of AI brings with it great opportunity, but also risk. AI applications demonstrate the same stereotypes and bias in machine learning as found in language created by humans. Bryson, Caliskan and Narayanan at Princeton published a paper in Science that reveals depth of the problem, and New Sincerity wants to be part of the solution.

New Sincerity is also researching fake news.

The negative impacts of fabricated news on American institutions and lives is huge. Barthel, Mitchell and Holcomb with the Pew Research Center revealed that fake news has left a majority of Americans greatly confused about current events. The Innovation Lab is interested in the social networks, systems and algorithms that share information, and advancing equity through information.

What is your idea?

We’re not building The Innovation Lab alone. We partner with entrepreneurs, foundations and changemakers to explore, define and build technology that promotes equity and advances inclusive values. Working on a project basis we’ll help move your idea from the back of a napkin into code.
