Exploring the Future of Content


Who We Are.

Prescient is a creator-focused innovation lab dedicated to exploring the future of rights management and content monetization.

We are one of the few organizations globally focused on exploring blockchain and exponential technologies from the creator’s perspective.

We’re doing this by:



Putting the needs of the creators and rights holders first



Driving innovation with deep and unconventional insights about content, creators and audiences



Identifying new, profitable business models for creators and audiences



Accelerating innovation through partnership building


Our Projects.

At Prescient, we’re solving the attribution problem by developing an Attribution Ledger using blockchain and machine learning. It will reliably and accurately connect a creative work with its lawful creator and rights owner.

She explained that most students used Google for research rather than the library’s quality resources, which are more difficult to use.
