Announcement – Mr. Takahiro Ikushima of Mathematical Science Advanced Technology Laboratory Co., Ltd. joins alt Inc. as Adviser

The developer of “alt”, a P.A.I. (Personal Artificial Intelligence) (* 1), alt Inc. (alt) is pleased to announce that Mr. Takahiro Ikushima, Chief Executive Officer, Mathematical Science Advanced Technology Laboratory Co., Ltd. has joined as an Adviser.


alt has been designing and developing a distributed personal data platform, “alt Stack” (* 2).  This is a storage system storing any and all data linked to an individual under a guarantee of confidentiality and immutability by the use of encryption and blockchain technologies employing a decentralized mechanism where only that particular individual is authorized to control. “alt Stack” will make it possible for “individuals to reclaim ownership of their personal data”.

Mr. Takahiro Ikushima of Mathematical Science Advanced Technology Laboratory Co., Ltd., who is a data scientist and handles projects related to artificial intelligence himself, will render his expertise at this time so that alt could further deepen the business model based on Personal Data Store (PDS) or could work on further accelerating and implementing the base development of “alt Stack”.

In addition, we would like to earn the support of Mr. Ikushima in view of his abundant experience in projects relating to artificial intelligence and high performance computing system and his profound knowledge on extensive fields.  Thereby, our objective is to receive guidance from Mr. Ikushima in order to further enhance the technology of developing artificial intelligence by alt and to strengthen our organization for development.
