An Insider's view of Yonder

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Yonder’s research division, NK Labs, is responsible for driving discoveries in emerging artificial intelligence and machine learning research through open-source DARPA programs — Data-Driven Discovery of Models (D3M) and Active Social Engineering Defense (ASED) — which we use internally to build tools to fight disinformation online.

What is your vision for the company?

To bring authenticity to the Internet. Most people believe the Internet is a cocktail party at scale. In reality, the conversation online is driven by hyperactive mobs, or Internet Factions as we call them, that exploit platform dynamics to manipulate the narrative.
