Why Augmented Learning Collaboration (ALC)?
Problems. Challenges. Opportunities.
The White Paper about Augmented Learning Collaboration (ALC)
This comprehensive White Paper aims at describing what ALC is about, how and why it will change our Society. It also provides a list of dozens of use cases.
What is new about Augmented Learning Collaboration (ALC)?
ALC will deeply change how we collaborate. ALC brings together a range of social and digital innovations. This article provides a bird view.
Collaborative undertakings as a whole: micro versus macro
How ALC allows to move from micro-exchanges to macro-collaboration
Augmented Learning Collaboration (ALC) - a new paradigm for digital togetherness
Augmented Learning Collaboration (ALC) will enable better individual collaboration habits and collective collaboration practices in all domains of life. By better we mean more intelligent, effective, efficient, trustworthy, motivating, and inclusive. The aim is thus to progress individual quality of life and common solidarity in society. But what do we understand by ALC? A primer on some of the key concepts such as symFlos, symBots, virtual private assistants...
Building common cultures of practice and bridging communities towards a commons of collaboration
Organisational and community cultures are very much driven of how we collaborate and communicate with each other. ALC enables the transformation of communities of practice
Embody individual habits and collective practices for collaboration
By embodying collaboration practices in templates which can be reused, improved and shared we catayse much more powerful and continuously progressing collaboration practices
Deepening collaborative content
Collaborative content is what remains after collaboration, the results and the memory of collaboration to be shared and used. ALC enables much richer, deeper and more evolutive forms of collaboration.
Combine structured and informal collaboration in one
Current digital tools propose either informal or structured communication. ALCs proposes hybrids amalgamating both in view of unlocking the potential of complex collective problem solving.
Configurable collective intelligence & no-code
ALC moves from informal exchanges to the possibility to configure collaboration to get smart results more efficiently
Collaboration and time: collaborate slow and fast
Timing and rythm deeply impact collaboration, and in particular collective intelligence and hence effectiveness. ALC makes it possible to control and steer time.
The evolution of individual habits and collective practices and societal transformations
ALC will deeply make evolve our individual collaboration habits, thus changing how we build our lives, and transform our collective collaboration practices, thus transforming how we make society happen.
Augmented Learning Collaboration (ALC) transforms Media and Publications
In a world of information overload and fake news, ALC offers the potential of deeply transforming how we publish and use information in all kinds of media, enabling new form of hybrid collaboration of people and agents in richer forms of collaboration and exchange.
Augmented Learning Collaboration (ALC) transforms Science, Research and Innovation
ALC opens new perspectives for transforming science and innovation in an increasingly complex world, facilitating collaboration across disciplines, mixing inter-disciplinary collaboration with powerful usage of AI driven tools.
Augmented Learning Collaboration (ALC) transforms Personal Relationships, Leisure and defragments Life
Personal relationships are very much conditioned by what we do together and how we communicate with each other. ALC can be a powerful enabler both to make personal relationships deeper and to develop new interesting personal relationships.
How will SymPlace use the money raised during this fundraising, and in subsequent ones?
The priority is to implement the first version of the technology, the first product based on macro-meeting organization, and launch the market through business partnerships. In subsequent rounds, we will expand the applications and markets.
Why and how does SymPlace's fundraising operation combine tokens on Kriptown.com and convertible bonds?
The combination of the two financial instruments extends our raise to investors who seek liquidity for their shares and investors who are targeting a more traditional instrument with, in the event of conversion, tax credits in France.
How was the valuation established?
The money raised will be used to develop the product and establish the market. We expect to reach profitability in 5 to 7 years and critical mass in 10 to 15 years. Therefore, we are valuing the future, applying different valuation techniques, including DCF (Discounted Cash Flow), with an annual return rate of over 100% to offset the risk incurred by investors. An excellent investment for those willing to take a risk!
Does SymPlace already have customers?
Yes and no. We have a product, the CMT (Community Management Tool), which was at the beginning of our journey. It had some success but is at the end of its life cycle. Our new product to implement the ALC meets a broad need, which is also the one of SymPlace’s founders: we want it because it could change our lives and our world.
What are the risks related to competition?
SymPlace aims to create a new market... that will disrupt several existing ones with major players with vast resources, including the GAFAM. But SymPlace has attributes that are difficult to imitate, including its decentralized technological model, its economic model, and a strategy that will encourage both large and small entities to cooperate rather than fight with SymPlace.
Where does SymPlace stand with respect to advanced "Artificial Intelligence" (AI) technologies such as ChatGPT? Could they not just substitute SymPlace? Why is this going to drive Augmented Learning Collaboration (ALC)?
AI technologies complement (ALC Augmented Learning Collaboration), but cannot and should not replace it, if only because human collaboration is too complex and too rich. However, they can provide valuable services to make collaboration between humans richer, more intelligent, and more efficient...
How does SymPlace confront the technological risks related to privacy protection?
An Augmented Learning Collaboration (ALC) that covers all areas of life raises strong new GDPR / privacy protection challenges. SymPlace's solution is to ensure protection by design by basing symBots and private virtual assistants on Web4.0 technology, with which users and virtual agents have complete control over their data.
How does SymPlace manage team risks?
We are experienced serial entrepreneurs who know that we are not and must not be irreplaceable. We will build a solid organization as soon as the company takes off. And we have more curiosity and energy than many people who are younger by several decades.
Which are the reasons NOT to believe? And why you should believe anyway – and invest – in the project?
There is a whole list of risks that can make you doubt the project – team risks (including the age of the founders), technology risks, and competition risks. We have the experience to manage them effectively. But above all, we believe they are more than outweighed by the potential for gain.
