TRUSTLESS.AI is the startup spinoff of the Trustless Computing Association – based in Luxembourg, Berlin and Rome. It’s building (a) a TC-compliant open computing base, (b) a resilient TC-compliant Supply Chain, (b) and an initial compliant IT services, called CivicNet. This includes a CivicChain and a CivicPod, a 2mm-thin Wifi handheld device, aimed initially at the most critical communication, negotiations and transactions of high-profile enterprises and individuals. It is pursuing fundraising of 600k€ leading up to a second round in 6-9 months for $5-6M in equity, and a possible ultra-safe token sale (“ICO”).
A global conference series, ongoing since 2015, it has been held already in Brussels, New York, and Brazil, and has attracted amazing world-class speakers.
Its sole stated purpose has been to create a wide consensus on the need, feasibility, and nature of a new cybersecurity certification body, with the characteristics of the Trustless Computing Certification Body. Last edition was in Berlin on May 4th, and next will be in Berlin or other EU capital in Fall 2018. Join us as audience, panelist or sponsor!
The Trustless Computing Campus and Cluster is proposed public-private initiative – co-funded by EU, local and nations public funding – to jump start in the Rome, Berlin and/or Vienna regions, the World’s leading research and competence centre for leading-edge cybersecurity security for communication, cyber-physical and artificial intelligence systems, by offering an unmatched array of scientific, quality of life and economic incentives to the very best talents, researchers, startups, accelerators and companies in such sectors.
PUBLICATIONS & RESEARCH INITIATIVES
On 4/2018, we published on ResearchGate our Position Paper – Case for a Trustless Computing Certification Body (43-pager PDF). Fruit of 3 years of work, and dozens of contributors, it makes a formal case for the technical feasibility and public benefit of the creation of such a certification body and a compliant open ecosystem.
On 4/2016, we submitted a 4M€ proposal to H2020 DS-01-2016 RIA (113-pager PDF) titled “TRUSTLESS socio-technical systems for ultra-high assurance ICT certifications, and a compliant open target architecture, life-cycle and ecosystem, for critical societal use cases and consumer adoption“. Included an ultra-resilient binding conditional MoU among key R&D partners including licensing, patenting and non-compete under Swiss law.
On 4/2016, we submitted a 1M€ proposal to H2020 DS-01-2016 CSA (80-pager PDF) to build the Certification Body, titled: “TRUSTLESS: Facilitating the evolution to uniquely comprehensive and comparable certification of ICT services and lifecycles“.
