More than 100,000 people have signed up for the “Knowledge Fight,” a series of competitions on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter to figure out how much knowledge people can gain from reading and watching a particular topic.
The goal is to increase their understanding of the topics that matter most to them.
The competition is hosted by the company Knowledge Revolution, which aims to get more people to think critically about their own knowledge, and is aiming to reach a larger audience.
According to its Facebook page, the contest is meant to provide information about the topic, and then help people figure out what information they need to learn about that topic.
“We wanted to take a look at how our audience was actually getting their information,” the company’s founder and CEO, Dan Schumacher, told Mashable.
“How much information they were actually getting from the media.
And then how much of that information was actually being delivered to them.””
The key here is to be as objective as possible about your sources, and how you get those sources,” he continued.
“This will allow us to understand what the biggest barriers are, and the key thing is to make sure you get the information from people who have the most exposure to the topic.”
Schumacher explained that he believes that most people have little understanding of how much information is being spread about certain topics.
“When you talk about the science of health, or about diet or dieting or about fitness, people aren’t really thinking about what they’re eating, they’re thinking about how much exposure they’re getting,” he said.
“But that exposure is often not the same as the knowledge that you’re getting from a lot of the research.”
The knowledge fight competition is part of the Knowledge Revolution’s larger initiative to increase awareness about the topics and information that are most important to them, as well as to share information that is relevant and useful to them and their friends.
The initiative has already been widely adopted in the US and around the world, with millions of users participating, according to the company.
Schumachers goal is for the knowledge battle to be more than just a contest for those who know what they know about a topic, he said, adding that the competition is not about how many hours of programming a week someone spends learning about a particular subject, but instead to reach people who would otherwise not have access to information.
“It’s not a contest to be judged by how many pages you’ve read,” he explained.
“We’re trying to give them information they’re going to benefit from.
If they understand how to apply that information in their life, then it’s going to be really helpful to them in the long run.”
Schmacher said that the contest has been particularly effective in encouraging people to make connections and build relationships with each other, which is crucial for them to succeed in the future.
“What we found is that when people are connecting, they want to know more about the people around them, they have a more meaningful conversation,” he added.
“It helps you to be better at your job.
It helps you get ahead in your career.”
In a series that has seen hundreds of people compete in the contest, the top two contestants each received more than $5,000 in prize money, which was split between the top three finishers.
One of the participants, Saman Akkad, told the Daily Beast that he was inspired by the challenge to learn more about his fellow contestants and see how he could share his knowledge.
“If you’re a very tech savvy person, then you’re going be able to understand a lot more about people from a different culture, and that’s how we’re seeing so many successful people start their careers,” he told the news outlet.
“So we’re not just trying to make money, we’re trying for the same thing.”
While the competition has generated quite a bit of buzz, there is still a lot to learn.
“There’s a lot going on in terms of how this thing works, and who’s participating,” Akkads partner, Jodi Mancuso, told BuzzFeed News.
“Some of the information that they are giving is quite dense, but it’s also very accessible.”
Akkadic explained that the challenge also includes sharing their own experience with different aspects of their lives.
“In terms of the challenge itself, we just need to figure it out,” Akkanad said.
But, she added, it’s still fun and exciting to see how much people can learn from the competition.
“I think that this challenge is very powerful in helping us to get better at our job, and it gives us a chance to share our knowledge with people who might not be able [to access it].”
