Collaborative Research Foundation and Collaborative Research Institute 2020

The Collaborative Research Foundation and the Collaborative Research Institute are not-for-profit organisations.

Starting in Q4 2019 a greener programme schedule is to be adopted across all organisations for several reasons:

Collaborative Intelligence and Xeno-Science


A new division of Collaborative Research was created in Q4 2019. Collaborative Intelligence was set up as a new Internet domain for several new programmes starting in Q4 2019 including the revised Berryessa programme.

Why the new division?

The creation of this new division was a consequence of CRF/CRI research and testing from our CI team from 2017 to date.

Q2 2019 activities

Reports of content from our public information Drupal system being abused

We have had reports of content from our public information Drupal system being abused. Apparently our information appears in Google searches on other sites advertising items. This may be some type of SEO error or some malicious behavior on the part of a third party.

We are not sure of the intent but it is suspicious and we must clearly state it is nothing to do with us.

The Madeira Engine and the Alpha Kilo Programme

The Madeira Engine and the Alpha Kilo Programme

Happy New Year to all our friends and Feliz Ano Novo to those in Madeira, Portugal!

Since H2 2018 we have been working on an engine to add to our Collaborative Intelligence unit that would accelerate our research on Surface Web, Deep Web and non Web knowledge.

We have for some time used our Truth Engines which were architected in the early 2000's under the CRF Tachyon Programme and successor development by the CRI.

Malicious Silicon BMC & Service Processor Risk Mitigation

Some projects are asking what Collaborative Research is doing about Malicious Silicon BMC & Service Processor Risk Mitigation.

Our private systems use motherboards sourced from Sun Micrososystems, Hahnspring (HP) ASUS (Taiwan) and SuperMicro.

Our engineering folks have taken our Supermicro based systems offline for a physical check of Malicious Silicon. We don’t expect to find anything but if we do we will report what we find to UK and EU authorities in the normal way.

We are also checking other vendor SP’s and BMC’s but over the remainder of H2 2018.

Internal SuperCloud progress

Just an update for extended collaborators.

All is going more or less to plan but we are re-writing some existing code at a low level (lower than C++) to get interconnects work as intended.

A decision was made to keep our SuperCloud systems off the net which is a shame but we cannot risk development being compromised.

The re-write workload is far greater than anticipated so it is highly likely the work will extend in to H1 2019.

New SuperCloud at Collaborative Research in H2 2018

We have completed a new SuperCloud design for use at Collaborative Research in H2 2018. The term SuperCloud designates custom HPC infrastructure for hosting AI installations. The HPC aspect is optimised for algorithms and is a computer grid system.

Infrastructure build work starts in August 2018. The SuperCloud will be privately hosted at Collaborative Research in the UK and later in the EU (currently scheduled for Q2 2019)

During 2018 the SuperCloud will only be used by the Collaborative Intelligence team.

Pardon our dust!

We are making some engineering changes and are having some fun and games with our UK ISP endpoints. Our apologies for any offnet sessions.

We have identified the point of failure and we are working with our UK ISP to resolve the issue.

Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

Services running normally during the week. We may test on Sundays when services could be interrupted.

Collaborative Research Institute NEODE

At the Collaborative Research Institute UK base work completed today on our eighth generation of digital workforce entities. These entities operate internally as our Collaborative Intelligence team alongside humans.

Effective 22.4.2018 our eighth generation of digital workforce entities will be classed with our new term of NEODEs.

Note that we consider NEODE (or new digital entity) to be a trademark/servicemark at present of the Collaborative Research Institute operating out of the UK and Europe. The NEODE work is the 2018 IPR of Gordon Jeffrey in the UK and Europe.

2017 GDPR Information Audit

Our 2017 GDPR Audit was completed for January 2018 and helped us revise our information policy.
The EU GDPR outlines that data controllers in organisations who may use personal data shall not retain personal data for any longer than necessary. The EU GDPR gives a data subject the right to require the erasure of their personal data as “the right to be forgotten”).
