Collaborative Futures

We support teams who are tackling big challenges in sustainability, public health, and social inclusion -

and we're looking for pilot projects.

DATA COLLABORATION FOR GOOD

The Collaborative Futures program offers subsidies and support for data-centric pilot projects focused on solving real-world challenges in sustainability, healthcare, education, and social inclusion.

The goal is to develop best practices in data ownership and data governance while simultaneously using the Data Collaboration methodology to accelerate meaningful outcomes.

Foundation of control

The  Collaborative Futures program leverages Collaborative Intelligence   platform   technology that uses  'network-based' data management  architecture which is similar   in design to the brain and capable of powering hundreds of solutions via 'Zero-Copy Integration'.  

 

This enables innovation to happen    with unprecedented  speed without sacrificing  control.

Ownership by default

Collaborative Intelligence technology enables data to be blended, modeled, and operationalized without generating copies of sensitive   or any other data. 

 

This means that  owner-defined access controls  are not only enforced across the network, but   throughout all of   the app experiences, real-time systems, analytics, AI/ML models, and automations  that are powered by the platform. 

Collaboration by design

Data Collaboration is a highly-inclusive    approach to problem-solving where secure collaboration  between   diverse groups of people and systems - all using the universal language of data - is   the engine of innovation. The   result  is better technology, delivered faster,  with more fairness and efficiency from the start.

CONTROL

Today's transformational projects face a growing challenge   from increasingly strict Data Protection regulations. Our pilot projects will  introduce   owner-defined, universally-enforced   access controls   that  exceed    the requirements of even the most ambitious legislation.

 

The elimination of copies, which is inherent to the Data Collaboration methodology,   has a similar impact  on  other data protection outcomes including portability, deletion, custodianship, and auditability.

Frictionless innovation

A major objective  of the Collaborative Futures program is to road   test Data Collaboration,  a new and data-centric approach to building technology that eliminates much of the friction   associated with complex code, data   sharing contracts, and traditional data integration. 

 

What we'll be defining is nothing short of  a roadmap for accelerating the limitless potential of data  while eliminating silos, increasing   control, and placing data ownership at the core of the innovation universe.​​
