Project Oblio is a research institute, sponsored by Oblio Univeristy. There, you’ll find academic courses dedicated to guide you through our project (always free).
- Decentralize neuroscience research. By making the scientific method more open, not only will we produce more research into neuroscience, we’ll produce it faster. (Text) (Video)
- Implement a mobile populist blockchain governance model. A scalable blockchain is born from a port of democracy onto the internet. (Text) (Video)
- Vybuds headphones. Hardware that effectively acts as a “brainwave miner”, procuring clinical and financial wealth. (Text) (Website) (Video)
We’ve been collecting feedback and have compiled common questions into an FAQ.
Early on, in late 2013, we recognized the power of liveness-detectable biometrics in scaling blockchain. We’re confident in the one-way “proof-of-cognition” algorithms we’ve devised, as they’ve achieved higher rates of accuracy than traditional setups (albeit with long processing times — though that will drop significantly with donated computing power).
We often single-out brainwaves as a spark for our network because they have not been collected yet by governments or tech companies, they are a tremendous source of wealth (the going rate is ~$50/hr for a brainwave), and they have life-changing impacts for those suffering from mental illness. Read more about analysing brainwaves while keeping subjects’ identities anonymous.
It is obviously true that nothing is ever 100% secure, but our machine learning protocol is only insecure in a non-binary sense. While other cryptocurrencies may be made irrelevant by a single breakthrough in computing power, calculating trust levels based on crowdsourced A.I. is unlikely to have a “shoot or fail” moment that could make the entire industry irrelevant. In other words, our algorithms start out less secure than encryption, but over time, they become more resilient, even to major breakthroughs in computing. When coupled with financial incentives for identifying and generating fake data, it becomes clear that a cryptocurrency can be used to secure a biometrically-backed identity network.
It would be complacent of us, as a society, to not to attempt to build a proof-of-individual internet democracy, as it could positively impact so many lives.
