Een Nieuwe Speeltuin voor alle Geboren en Ongeborenen

Welkom in Wealgo

PROBEER Wealgo
Wealgo maakt gebruik van Face Recognition AI & Group Video Meetings om vloeiende, hybride ruimtes te creëren en transciënte identiteiten aan te moedigen. We voegen menselijke en niet-menselijke beeldtaal samen om te spelen en niet om te profileren. Wij geloven dat de machine is zoals de mens het leert. We streven naar een open, eerlijke en rechtvaardige speeltuin voor alle geboren en ongeborenen.

Kamers staan ​​centraal in Wealgo. U navigeert —gewichtloos— tussen hen door met uw neus te wijzen. Om u op weg te helpen, hebben we al enkele kamers gecreëerd om te experimenteren. Kijk hieronder om een ​​idee te krijgen of probeer het zelf uit.

Follow your nose, they say in The Netherlands ... chances are they're right.

Ecoutez FIP, algorithmic brilliance for the many, inspirational, aspirational.

Wealgo's public room. What ever you do, be polite, make friends and have fun.

It's not always clear who's talking. This room lights you up when you speak.

If you want to save your voice use this chat room.

Speech to Text & Speech Synthetics. Use with headphones.

Here's a compilation of questions we get asked often. If you need to know something else ... just email us.

Frequently asked questions

What is WeAlgo?
WeAlgo lets you join group video calls with a customised biometric avatar. We saveguard your privacy by making explicit what routine video calls implicitely provide.
What's a biometric avatar?
A representation of yourself, created with face recognition software.
Why WeAlgo?
To enhance privacy, to play with identity, to cut pollution but above all to experiment & play.
How does it work?
WeAlgo computes your biometric avatar, lets you customise it and distributes it (with your audio) to a Meeting Room with other users.
How do you cut pollution?
By streaming keypoints data only —instead of compressed video— we save 95% bandwidth costs and related pollution.
Is it Private?
Rooms are public with the exception of your self created private room.
Is it secure?
We use WebRTC technology for P2P, end to end encrypted communication.
Is Wealgo biased?
Probably yes, and we realize that we are in a position to think & feel that way, where many are not. It is our ultimate mission to make Wealgo inclusive to all human and non-human agents. If you find us exclusive in any way, shape or form, please email us so we can help you and you can help us.
Does WeAlgo really recognise me?
It probably doesn't ;) We are still finding out.
Do I need to register?
No you don't. You can use WeAlgo without registration, and without a screen name. You can be totally anonimous.
How do I participate in a Room?
Rooms are urls. Type the name of the room in the input field to go there. Or receive a link URL to take you there straight away.
Do you collect or store my data?
No we don't. No cookies, no trackers, no registration, no identification, no advertising ... We do store data —eg your custom Mask— in local storage on your own machine.
What's your business model, how do you make money of WeAlgo?
We don't ;) We have partime jobs and are kindly supported by a number of co-financers, mostly artistic/creative funds.
How can I help?
