  • Publication number: 20200058055
    Abstract: A distributed ledger application for the world of citizen philanthropy and social entrepreneurship, with stakeholder incentives designed to increase social good through accountability, transparency, and flexibility. In this system, called Directed Cash, individual donors specify conditions (the “Directed” part) attached to their donation or investment (“Cash”), that are then efficiently paired with interested recipients or aggregators of recipients (charities, social entrepreneurs) using distributed consensus so that the intent and pairing are open while maintaining donor anonymity. Furthermore, Directed Cash flows both ways to promote accountability and transparency: after receipt, a validation flows backwards to return to the donor so that the donor receives a report of how their donation was spent.

  • Publication number: 20100299289
    Abstract: A system and method of obtaining information concerning the structure-function relationship of biological networks can be studied holistically through the ensemble characterization of all the networks that realize a given biological function. A logic-based approach enables significant advances in computability and concept development (minimality and reducibility). The approach is applied to a biologically relevant trajectory and reveals some interesting properties. By using the approach, a cell cycle network is decomposed into three components with the functioning of each component explained.
