Global Brain Data Foundation
Nothing is more critical to achieving a thriving human future than ensuring the safety, security, and vision guiding one of tomorrow’s most ubiquitous and important technological frameworks: a massive database with a diverse cross section of neurodata accessible for both collective and individual purposes.
The Global Brain Data Foundation is a data repository and standards entity for the collection, accumulation, licensing, and use of neurodata.
The Global Brain Data Foundation is proud to be a supporting partner of World Mental Health Day.
At the center of each and every one of our experiences is our mental health. And, like physical health, our mental health is critical to our happiness and felt sense of success and wellbeing in the world.
The Covid-19 global pandemic has revealed the extent to which depression, anxiety, and other mental ills – both common and uncommon – lurk within so many of us and our fellow humans. It’s time to use this knowledge and the intense pain we see and feel all around us, to recognize the pressing need for both inspired individual acts of love and a coordinated global effort to safeguard and uplift the mental health of our entire global community.
While scalable solutions to ensuring a planet of mental health and wellness is at the heart of the Global Brain Data Foundation’s actions every day, we are honored to join the incredibly important efforts of the World Health Organization, United for Global Mental Health, and the World Federation for Mental Health in trumpeting the importance of this critical topic.
Whether you are involved with any larger mental health efforts or not, you can do your part today or any time this week to play an important role simply by being kind to others. Kindness is a superpower on World Mental Health Day.
We envision a world where neurodata is used to empower humanity and everyone has access to the support they need for personal wellbeing.
The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization established to empower human development and understanding through the ethical and (cyber)secure sharing, collaboration, and research of neurodata.”
Our Top Priorities
We are guided by the following values in the formation of a generative framework on neurodata that supports a successful future for all humanity:
Provide safe, inexpensive, secure technology putting the individual in ultimate control of their own neurodata.
Establish and enforce the highest possible ethical standards and best practices for all players in the neurodata space.
As the neuroeconomy surges into existence we work to ensure that governments, industry, and research all work together.
Provide the transparent leadership and framing essential to ensuring healthy development of this critical ecosystem.
To realize the full potential of neurodata to support individuals and society we are focused on:
Work with industry stakeholders & governments on the future of neurotech
curating a brain database
A repository for the collection & management of neurodata
establishing best practices
Universal standards to ensure the highest possible ethics & behaviors worldwide.
Cutting edge, accessible technology created to support human flourishing and licensed to parties complying with established best practices..
No person or entity has the right to alter another’s data, behaviors, or consciousness without that individual’s explicit and specific permission.
A database, accessible for both collective and individual purposes, including full encryption security to protect the integrity of its information, embedded AI to maintain ever-evolving neural models, and obligatory best practices to ensure standards of use and interaction with neurodata.
