We are investigating decentralized techniques and technologies that affect social change.

We’re exploring how to radically change the way Web applications work today, resulting in decentralized architectures that enable true data ownership with the Solid project; working on frameworks that ensure information can be shared, used, and manipulated in a way that is compliant with regulation, business rules, social norms, and user preferences; investigating methodologies to make algorithms trustworthy and accountable, as well as harnessing mobile technologies for disaster relief.
