Whys – Context for Decision Making

About

A data visualisation platform to make informed decisions

Whys is a decision-support system that presents nuanced information in an intuitive and structured way. Seeking to get away from binary data polls – in which decisions are simplified to a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer – Whys encourages reflection in public debate, representing the notions behind different opinions. Rather than giving all un-contextualised opinions equal footing, Whys shows the connectivities between often differing views – bringing together fractured information and helping to make sense of it. By enabling decision makers to see the ‘big picture’ in seconds, better processes for collaboration are made possible in politics, management and science.
