- open, shared resources: the research community shares data, algorithms, citations, and other work
- crowd intelligence: people can rate the quality of the resources, so that the community develops an interpretation of which are the best
- transparency: algorithms and results are publicly available so they can be modified and improved by other researchers
Essentially, this idea does away with the status quo of research in many fields, where each researcher works independently, rarely shares algorithms, doesn't always share data, and runs tests that are limited and not easily reproducible.
