PROBLEMS IN THE DATA ECONOMY

AI Data Gap
Small companies struggle to create AI innovations because they lack access to the volumes of data their algorithms need
Unauthentic Data
The data small companies do have access to produces poor algorithm results due to its questionable authenticity
Unsustainable Ecosystem
Data Producers lack the incentives to provide the volumes of authentic data required because they only get compensated for the initial sale

THE QUADRANT BLUEPRINT

The data economy is similar to space; unmapped and chaotic. Quadrant serves as the blueprint that provides an organized system for the utilization of decentralized data.

BENEFITS

Data Stamping
We stamp for authenticity, allowing data buyers to trace and have proof of who created the data.
Constellation Creation
We dare Pioneers to venture, enabling them to create the first Data Smart Contracts and are deployed to create new data products
Enriched data and services
We empower the brightest minds to work on creating Mega Constellations - new products and services on top of Quadrant.

FAQ

Quadrant is a blockchain-based protocol that enables the access, creation, and distribution of data products and services with authenticity and provenance at its core. The data economy is similar to space; unmapped and chaotic. Quadrant serves as the blueprint that provides an organized system for the utilization of decentralized data.

Quadrant aims to build the data economy around the silos that large data-hoarding companies like Google and Facebook create, in turn diminishing their power.

Quadrant also aims to address the non-transparency issues in the data industry, which lead to a lot of fraud where companies are hiding their sources. With the transparency promoted within Quadrant, companies will be able to trace the data sources for compliance purposes, as well as ensure that they get the data they paid for and that it is what they want for their application.

As well, Quadrant ensures that all the data providers within the value chain receive proper and fair compensation, as the original creators, dubbed as the nurseries, are often left out when it comes to the profits generated by the data they provide aggregators or companies.

Quadrant provides the infrastructure that facilitates the exchange of DaaS and AI services between organizations. It enables data vendors to sell their data with the use of data smart contracts. Likewise, it enables buyers to purchase data and trace its authenticity and provenance through the network’s data stamping verification system. In turn, this enables DaaS and AI service firms to build new products and services on top of the infrastructure and network.

The main participants in Quadrant are the Nurseries, Constellations, Pioneers, Elons, and Guardians.

Nurseries; the atomic data providers that create the original data records. They create stars, which can then be grouped into constellations.

Constellations; the smart contracts that map multiple data sources into a single data product. These data products are then transacted between parties.

Pioneers; the entities that create data products with Quadrant’s smart contracts.

Elons; the entities that utilize the created data products and with them, build new and unique products and services. They rely on constellations and constellation blueprints to make sense of the data space, which they will travel through.

Guardians; the master nodes that protect the integrity of the chain, ensuring that it is not compromised. The Guardians ensure that the constellations created by the Pioneers are not compromised and provide the services of stamping data into the system.

If you have a DaaS or AI service firm, then you can work with us to get your products and services into Quadrant. If you want to help build the network, then you may contact us at  build@explorequadrant.com . You may also spread the word via our bounty program

There are many areas where Quadrant can partner, both technical or commercial. We seek technical partners for storage and processing (computation). As well as seek commercial partners for the following areas:

·     Data vendors

·     AI Service companies

·     APP / SDK Developers

·     DaaS firms

·     University / Innovation Labs

Pioneers and Elons can use an open source client to access Quadrant.

Contact us if you’d like to start authenticating your data via Quadrant; building data products; utilizing the data; or building services on top of the protocol.

Guardians must ask permission to join the network. In this regard, contact us if you want to become an early supporter of Quadrant.

The stamping protocol is a system used to prove the authenticity of data. When data is produced, the nursery stamps the data’s “finger print” (the hash) into Quadrant. It enables Elons to verify, at the time of consumption, whether the data they received was in the exact same state as when it was created.

Files of any size, including the nested folders, can be stamped. Data can be hashed by using a standard SHA 256 hashing algorithm.

Nurseries will pay the network fees to stamp the data in the chain. These fees help prevent spamming of the service and will cover the master nodes’ fees for creating the blocks. The fees will vary depending on the volume of transactions in the network. Elons can verify the data stamp for free.
