We produce more
data now than ever before. It's all around
us growing exponentially from people,
companies and devices.
Data can be used
to power innovation and lead to breakthroughs that
save lives, reduce costs and
improve the quality of our environment.
But right now data is locked
up. It's a valuable resource that isn't being

data. The problem is we don't own
it. People give up their data for free and companies

This affects everyone.
year over 1 million lives are lost in
car accidents and countless others are injured mostly
because of human error.
Autonomous self driving
cars point to a future where more people can get home
safely to their families. If car companies could pool
their self driving car data, we could rapidly improve the
AI algorithms and have safe, autonomous
cars on the road sooner.
Here the data is
available but it isn't being shared.
to solve these data sharing problems started with a simple idea. What if we could give everyone full
control over their intellectual property?
This was Acribe.io, a service to help
creators claim attribution. But we faced scaling
problems and that led us to [inaudible]. A Big Data
database with blockchain characteristics
which gives people the power to control and
manage their data.
I spent nearly 20 years
doing AI research. AI could drive Moore's law, AI for creative
design and more.
Four years ago I shifted my focus to blockchain
technology. With Big Chain
DB and IPDB, the Interplanetary database.
A year ago I started asking how
might AI and blockchain intersect? The number of answers
All roads led to one place, a decentralized
data exchange protocol to connect the data
halves with the AI halves.
[inaudible] is a data marketplace,
enabling data sharing for the last 4 years. My experience
with data marketplaces was that compliance and
privacy issues emerged as soon as companies,
governments and citizens understand the power of
their data and the risks associated with it.
The solution for
me was in decentralizing
data to provide a framework of trust enabling
control, privacy, security,
compliance and transparency.
exactly what prompted me to reach out to Big Chain DB in
the convergence of these two streams that led us to start

The traditional credit system has
connected lenders and borrowers for decades. Evaluating
credit risks, limits and logistics but also
adding lots of beaurocracy, geographic
limitations and excluded the unbanked from the financial
With the internet, new peer to peer
loans accelerated the process and reduced
costs. But the risk was still too big for the lender
and credit lending was still assymetric.
created a solution and it's called Ripio Credit
Ripio Credit Network is a protocol based
on smart contracts and blockchain
technology that opens the door to global credit. Connecting
lenders and borrowers with RCN tokens which allow
lendings on any currency, anywhere in the world.
The network works like this. The borrower
makes a credit request from his
wallet provider. The wallet provider generates a smart
contract and broadcasts it to the network.
Then several agents seal that
First an ID verifier identifies the borrower
for security reasons. Then a
scoring agent analyzes the probabilities of a
default. Then an oracle informs the exchange
rate between currencies. Finally the
co-signer manages the credit conditions in the borrowers country of
residence, distributing the lenders risk and adding to the terms
noted on the contract. The co-signed contract is then listed
in the order book of an online exchange.
the other side of the network, the lenders create trading
orders and RCN tokens on the exchange
including their lending conditions. When the lenders order
matches the conditions on the smart contract,
the loan takes place.
The RCN tokens
are transferred to the corresponding wallet provider
which trades the RCN tokens to local
currency and grant credit to the borrower.
reducing the traditional banking brokerage costs
and management fees, the Ripio credit protocol
allows better conditions for both lenders and borrowers.
Credit Network sets the stage for
a decentralized, trustworthy, predictable
and efficient peer to peer global credit network
that will help many ideas and projects
all over the world to become
