Accuracy&Aesthetics mission is building consensus for the construction of semantic space as if it were a series of large scale public building projects. We are interested in both the mathematical and artistic sides of the digital age.
1. Link digital collections around the world into shared systems.

3. Specify requirements for long-term digital archiving, intellectual property protection, and higher quality information exchange.
4. Explore nature, pace, and flow of data exchange for different data types.
5. Integrate responses from diverse experts and the general public to develop logical, appealing, and consolidated overviews of the emerging age of interconnectivity while it is happening.
6. Make data more unique, less plain and interchangeable by creating easy to use comparison and assembly tools.
7. Layout a spectrum of information use to establish uniform locations of subject matters over time.
PREVIOUS MISSION STATEMENT
1. Accuracy&Aesthetics seeks to link individuals to museums, laboratories, educational and research institutions to enable them to engage in a process of sharing and exchange.
2. Accuracy&Aesthetics seeks to bring together experts from various fields including but not limited to mathematics, science, the social sciences, the fine arts and performing arts to identify more effective approaches to sharing information between disciplines, with the diverse general public, and with experts venturing outside their area of expertise.
3. Accuracy&Aesthetics seeks to foster and develop new processes for long-term archiving and enhancing the presentation of research results for more effective communication between disciplines and the public.
4. Accuracy&Aesthetics seeks to sponsor workshops, conferences, and online discussions to explore the nature of research data, public records, and the documentation of both quantitative and qualitative information and their respective roles in archiving, search methods, and public distribution.
5. Accuracy&Aesthetics seeks to integrate responses from diverse disciplines and the general public to analyze and assess the benefits, opportunities, and new kinds of problems associated with emerging communication technologies and interconnectivity.
6. Accuracy&Aesthetics seeks to publish and widely distribute information regarding its activities, processes, and conclusions to benefit increasing numbers of individuals, institutions, and publics.
7. Accuracy&Aesthetics seeks to explore new areas of inquiry within the domains of education, the humanities, and the arts and sciences to foster more effective interpersonal, interdisciplinary and institutional communication for long-term public benefit.
