Presence is creating Personal AI (artificial intelligence), a software product designed to address the growing public health problems related to over-exposure to digital media. We believe that every human being that interfaces with the digital world needs a personal agent such as Personal AI to do so, in order to avoid a surge in information input and the irresistible tug of highly curated and optimized content. Media companies employ psychologists and neurochemists to help t...hem train the AI that curates and optimizes your media feeds for maximum distraction and absorption of your attention. Personal AI is the countermeasure.
Personal AI is envisioned as a decentralized, peer-to-peer (P2P) network of intelligent agents partially powered by the Ethereum blockchain. These agents talk to each other and form a Social Mesh that represents our friend-of-a-friend (FOAF) networks across all of our social media platforms. The decentralization results in resiliency, privacy, and protection from catastrophic data loss or breach.
The product offers portfolio views, which provide unprecedented insights into which topics and connections are "trending" across your social media profiles. The portfolio reduces the manual clicking and endless scrolling that consumes so much of your time, and replaces it with user-friendly automation that keeps the pulse of your online social connections alive.
Personal AI, trained and optimized to work only for it's owner, is going to be needed by every human being that interacts with online content. There will be no other way to discern real from fake at the speed of the feed.

Parker had said that he was “something of a conscientious objector” to using social media, and Palihapitaya [former VP of user growth] revealed that he doesn’t use “that shit” anymore and neither are his children allowed to use it. What Parker said at the Axios event is actually very damning. “The thought process that went into building these applications, Facebook being the first of them, … was all about: ‘How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?'”
Nets are neutral to the extent that they are decentralized. Presence is committed to provided a decentralized Personal AI service that learns and interacts with the digital world to serve you and buffer you from fakery and overwhelm. This commitment to de
It is the nature of webs to be sticky and to ensnare. This world wide web we have created is no exception. How is that so and what to do about it? Read on...
