# Borderland 2024: FREUD

FREUD (Fantastic RE-distribution Utility Datasheet) helps the Dream Team with the last step of the , where the members of The Borderland decide what gets funded.
After the Borderland members have distributed the funding (), many dreams will be left only partially funded. This means we need to redistribute funding between them. FREUD helps the Dream Team by calculating how the underfunded dreams compare. In short, FREUD helps with Dream Analysis. Or in other words:
In the grand carnival of creativity, dream projects clamor for love and support. There exists a finite reservoir of psychic energy to be allocated. Not all dreams can be realized in their entirety. Inevitably, the reality principle must intervene. Certain projects, much like unfulfilled desires repressed by the psyche, fail to amass the requisite minimum of funds to materialize. Here, the Superego of the FREUD committee, embodying the societal conscience, steps forth to ensure that this psychic energy does not remain stifled and squandered. In an act of redistribution, funds are taken from those dreams that have not reached the threshold and are reallocated to others teetering on the brink of fruition.

### FREUD Models: How the algorithms work

A new feature of the FREUD sheet this year is that you can model redistribution with different algorithms. There are four algorithms, but all of them work essentially the same way:
Sort the dreams, including only the dreams that have not reached their minimum goal
Remove the funding from the dream at the bottom of the list
Put the money in a pot
Add money from the pot to the dream at the top of the list
If there is more in the pot than the dream at the top needs to reach its minimum, keep the remaining money in the pot
Repeat steps 2-5 until pot is empty and no more money can be moved
There are four models for how to sort the dreams for redistribution.
By number of funders
By how much SEK is missing until goal
By how close dream is to goal in percent
By a combo aggregation that combines the four other methods
Aggregation works by giving each dream a rank score. Rank is calculated as follows:
Sort dreams by funders, missing SEK and percent to goal
For each sorting, each dream is given a score. A low score is good. A score of 1 for the “Funders” sorting means that the dream had the highest number of funders. A score of 1 for the SEK sorting means that the dream needs the smallest amount of money of all to reach its goal.
All three scores are added together. For example, a dream that ranked 1st in number of funders, 90th in SEK remaining to goal, and 9th in percentage left to goal, would have combined score 100.
We then sort the dreams by their aggregation score.

### Running the models

You can run the algorithms and see the redistribution happening in the table below. If you click the Reset button on any of the models, the column for that model in the table will clear. To show the redistribution according to that model, simply click Run and watch the numbers in that column change. It’s a two step process, so when you see text on the button change to “Finish run”, click to finish the process.
If you want to understand the mechanism step by step, simply toggle the Loop switch. When the loop switch is off, every time you click Run the next action in the redistribution happens. If you want to finish, simply toggle the Loop switch again and press run to finish the algorithm.
