ACE-BRIAC

A collaboration between the Berkeley Centre for Responsible Decentralised Intelligence (RDI) and Imperial College London creates the Berkeley RDI-Imperial Algorand Centre of Excellence (BRIAC). BRIAC is a new international hub for scalable, responsible, and universally-accessible decentralisation technology. BRIAC’s four main research areas are:

  1. Scalability: Addressing the primary bottlenecks of existing blockchain systems at all layers.
  2. Privacy: Designing and developing new techniques and approaches for enhancing privacy in blockchain from both theoretical and practical standpoints.
  3. Responsible Decentralised Finance: ACE-BRIAC seeks to accelerate DeFi’s explosive growth studying the existing DeFi ecosystem as well as developing new tools to improve it.
  4. Regulatory Compliance: Investigating regulatory compliance as applied to blockchain, focusing on how privacy regulations like GDPR or CCPA can be interpreted in the context of complex peer-to-peer systems like blockchains.

ACE-BRIAC funding will help support the development of one of the most comprehensive blockchain curriculum in the world, by supporting existing course offerings and developing new blockchain courses at UC Berkeley and online worldwide as MOOCs
