Outlier Ventures Weekly Brief Issue #60 View Online

Brief newsletter this week. Three stories exploring three different themes. Each one of them rabbit holes to dig further deep into over the weekend. 

1. Cross-enterprise collaborative analytics with Enigma
Competing enterprises are missing out on the most powerful machine learning models: those where they collaborate to create AIs and analytic platforms with the full knowledge of an entire sector, and even cross-industry. Currently, enterprises are not willing to collaborate since each business does not want their trade secrets revealed to the next. A collaborative analytics platform built on Enigma, a private compute environment with mathematical guarantees that inputs to that environment are not revealed to any party. By allowing competing enterprises to contribute training and test data, machine learning models can be collaboratively trained and run on the sum of all data across industry, without any individual enterprise’s contribution being revealed. Machine learning is largely held back by data siloing, however privacy-preserving collaborative compute can remove this barrier to progress, without the need for the data silos to be broken down. Enigma enables AIs with unprecedented knowledge bases, allowing for more accurate analytics, better predictions and more effective solutions to problems.

2. Understanding Self Sovereign Identity
Identity, as we know it today, is broken. Excess reliance on centralised parties, platform lock-ins and the lack of means to protect one's privacy plague the average individual. This is not a "new" problem, just one that has grown exponentially as the nature of our interactions became digital. Christopher Allen recently gave a talk at Odyssey Connect exploring the basics of Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI), its history and what a future enabled by it would look like. Sovrin uses a similar architecture for its identity system. It is an hour-long talk exploring the ideologies that lead towards the establishment of SSIs as an identity system. Watch the whole clip here. 

3. Investing In Web 3.0 And Why It Is Different This Time
Jamie Burke condensed six years of our learnings in a recent talk at the same event. It explored the evolution of the web, where we believe the internet is headed, the transition from attention economy to the intention economy and lots more. This is a must-watch to understand how we envision the transition towards Web 3.0. Watch the entire video here to catch up on the thoughts and books driving our views at Outlier Ventures.

If you are building for the future - make sure you take a look at our Base Camp page. Applications are now open for the summer cohort in Berlin.
