Talk: Better Algorithms for a Decentralized Web—the GUN Stack

August 2nd, 9:30am-10:30am 
Decentralized Web Summit 2018 
Log Lounge

Speakers: Mark Nadal , GUN, Founder
Adrien Marie , DTube, Founder
Priya Kuber , GUN
Martti Malmi , GUN, Head of Identity

Our solution, graphs, CRDTs, and more, have already been used for cutting edge research in IoT, AI/ML, autonomous machines, blockchains, etc. at MIT and the Dutch Navy. But that only laid the foundation for the more important pieces we have built alongside Martti 'Sirius' Malmi, Satoshi's first contributor to Bitcoin and world renown applied cryptographer, such as decentralized identity and reputation that restore power and fairness back to people, not a middleman, which is already being used to create privacy-aware and censorship-resistant social networks in D.Tube and a P2P Reddit that can push terabytes of daily traffic. These systems can be used to create a new economic era of abundance, not controlled by any one party, but based on automation and algorithmic trade in local and global networks. This is what we call Freeism, free peoples, free products, and a flourishing planet.
