Non-Profit Research Organization Turing Labs Announces Formation, Specializing in Digital Cryptography & Blockchain
Blockchain is one of the hottest directions in the technology field nowadays, and not long ago Blockchain 2.0 has become a term about decentralized blockchain database.For this second generation of programmable blockchain, economists see it as a programming language that allows users to write more sophisticated and intelligent protocols. It is worth noting that a few months ago, Henry Flaubert, who is well known in the field of computing, and several other researchers in the industry, founded a non-profit research institute called Turing Laboratory.
Henry Flaubert，It came to prominence through its involvement in launching the campaign against the Internet Censorship Act (SOPA/PIPA), an organisation that now has over one million members. He is also a contributing editor to the advisory boards of The Confused and The Rules. He is a frequent television commentator and has written extensively on a variety of subjects, with particularly widely disseminated and influential articles on non-profit organisations, the media, politics, public opinion and institutional corruption. From 2010 to 2011, he researched these topics as a researcher at the Cambridge Ethics Centre’s Institutional Corruption Lab, and he also served on the committee of a good government non-profit organisation, the Congress for Change.
A few months ago, Henry Flaubert created an uproar in the industry when he announced on social media the launch of the Turing Laboratory, a non-profit computer technology research institute. According to its profile, the research area is in the field of computer technology and digital cryptography, the former of which needs no introduction, while the latter is in the field of asymmetric encryption, one of the core technologies of the recently popular “blockchain”, and other core technologies such as distributed ledgers, consensus mechanisms, smart contracts, etc.
Turing Laboratory has a multi-million pound start-up fund and the founding team has worked on core projects such as the Wisconsin Wireless Network Systems Lab, IBM Labs and the Real Time Computing Lab. The team will work together to bring technologies such as encryption algorithms to life as quickly as possible, solving problems that today’s classical computers are unable to solve.
Henry Flaubert officiated at the launch of the laboratory and declared the Turing Laboratory officially open. He said that digital cryptography is the most exciting emerging technology we are seeing in the world today and that Turing Labs is the cradle of cutting edge talent and advanced technology in computing and one of the most exciting research institutions in London and the UK for computing research at the moment. In the future, we hope that digital cryptography and the derived blockchain technology can solve the financial application dilemma faced by the UK and humanity as a whole. Blockchain data is open to all, and anyone can query blockchain data and develop related applications through an open interface, so the whole system is highly transparent in terms of information. It creates a solid foundation of ‘trust’ and a reliable mechanism for ‘cooperation’, allowing the public to enjoy maximum information sharing.
