Citizen Compute in Your Country

individuals solving global problems
... one square meter at a time

Our Citizen Startup program empowers anyone to introduce citizen compute modules into their countries.

Citizen Compute is realised with Citizen Compute Modules (Citizen Module) to resolve 2 major dilemmas in the compute industry:

  1. EASY controlling of applications by non-technical owners in a SECURE manner.
  2. CHEAP building of infrastructure by resource-poor owners in a RELIABLE manner.


Entity Agent substantially improves the security (with modular assist) and quality (with partition ai) of technical support over traditional support services.

When support is required you can contact the Cyberspace Integrator that puts your cyberspace together. If needed, it can contact the other module operators on behalf of you or you can contact those operators directly yourself.


Even during this early stage of development, the operators for the 4 modules are already separated into 4 businesses under 3 different legal entities (companies):

Module Operator Business Company Number
Private Cyberspace Cyberspace Integrator ABN 72 052 359 725
Community Cluster Infrastructure Builder ABN 62 629 769 919
Citizen Ecosystem Ecosystem Coordinator ABN 58 091 880 330

Cyberspace Integrators put a set of Citizen Applications and Crowd Infrastructures together to form a ready to use Private Cyberspace that can be installed on mobile phones with just ONE CLICK.

They are NOT allowed to develop the software (role of Application Developer) nor build the hardware (role of Infrastructure Builder) for Private Cyberspaces nor enforce rules between them (role of Ecosystem Coordinator).

The Separation of Powers principle is a major driver for innovation and quality within Citizen Synergy, it does not stop at just the supporting organisations mentioned above, it applies to every component and operation within each module also.

So long as the separation does not affect the quality of the module negatively by too much - the component or operation within a module should be divided between more independent parties.

Unprecedented Impact

1. More Innovation

Leaving the innovations of the WHOLE WORLD's information technology to the managers of a handful of Cloud companies does not make sense.

Innovation is about NEW ideas; it is difficult to get the best new ideas if it is always from the same OLD group of people (the Cloud).

Imagine you travelled around the world and the landscapes in every country look the same! The same applies to the domination of the Cloud in the information landscape around the world.

Your own Private Cyberspace enabled you to change your information environment and implement your new ideas at anytime, without the need to wait for the Cloud development nor approval.

The Infrastructure Templates enable non-technical people to create new Application Zones for themselves but mixing and matching modules easily.

Having your own private information assets that you have full control and can experiment with endlessly means innovation without limit, creating amazing applications (for personal use or for the whole community) that were not possible before.

With Private Cyberspace you can build, change or just mix and match Module Nodes to create new services without needing technical skills.

More Independence

Gain independence from the Cloud by setting up your own rules instead of following theirs.

Ownership means you have full visibility and control of your data exclusively at any time:

  1. NO need to ask others what data they have on you and hope that they give you the true picture, because with citizen computing you decide what data to give to them in the first place.
  2. NO need to complain that others change their rules of engagement after you have already given them your data, because with citizen computing you set the rules on your data not them.

The problem is not just being forced to view ads when you don't want to view them, another problem is that the ads were NOT there before!

The massive growth of a Cloud service based on no ads has allowed competition to be crushed, so when ad viewing is being forced there is nowhere for the viewers to turn to!

And since you are now forced to view ads, they can now profile your INTERESTS down to how many seconds it takes for you to click the "Skip" button.

With citizen Computing EVERYONE now has access to their OWN computation capabilities and can communicate DIRECTLY with each other using the Internet.

Users NO LONGER need the Cloud to connect with each other, NO LONGER need the Cloud for performance and NO LONGER need the Cloud for free services.

But simple point and click, you control how and which Node to use in your infrastructure, you decide what features, what privacy, what cost, what reliability, what capacity, what speed you want for each application.

Achieve self-determination and prevent undue influence, you no longer need to dance to the tune of the owners of the Cloud.

More Income

Earn extra income with your data and from data you collected.

Numerous parties are making a lot of money from your data, whether it is directly as profit or though their increased market valuation.

It is time for you to transfer the money they make from your data back into your own pocket!

One immediate benefit of owning your information asset is the ability to sell it (just like what the Cloud is doing).

You are simply redirecting money for your movements from location data harvesters back to you.

Location data is just a small part of your information asset, other data can be of high value also, for example:

  1. your contact list (your friends' network, your business contacts etc.)
  2. your shopping preferences (both online and real stores)
  3. how long is the wait (e.g. at the hospital emergency department)
  4. your health (diet, exercise, blood pressure, sleep cycles etc.)

if you managed to collect it someone will probably pay for it.

Citizen Computing allows you to CONTROL what data to give out, for how long, to whom, at what resolution, for what purpose, how much to charge etc. etc.

For example, with Citizen Assisted Contact Tracing the data collected for COVID-19 can be used to create income.

Unprecedented Insight

Your life should be more interesting to you than any Hollywood star.

More Data

With the capacity, reliability and security provided by your Private Cyberspace, your can confidently collect, store and analyse every tiny detail about life and your surroundings.

Collecting every bit of data about yourself and your environment will provide unexpected deep insights into yourself and the world around you - insights that can change your life.

For example through the Personal Console you gain a heighten awareness of your current environment in real-time and by analysing the detailed data it collected about your movements, your purchases, your contacts etc. you can see yourself in a new light.

To increase the value of your location data, you can click on Map Pins and record additional data like shopping receipts, car number plates etc. against any location you have visited.

You can move beyond simply "browsing" your data, you and run Artificial Intelligence programs on your own data to get deeper insights into your life style.

You are the only one to experience your life from your perspective, it is impossible for anyone, not even your mother, to know all your needs and wants, letting Cloud Artificial Intelligence (AI) learn from your data and then influence you is problematic at best.

  1. Unless you are specifically being targeted, Cloud AI is normally trained by the engineers for a lot of people (instead of you, just for you), so WILL get things wrong.
  2. Cloud AI is controlled by someone with DIFFERENT interests to you.
  3. Since the AI is remote, you have ZERO idea what it thinks of you, it might not be favourable or it might be plain wrong.

There is no need for lengthy ethical debates on AI, the only AI you should let near your data is your own AI running in your Personal Zone and may be some AI running in the Fiduciary Zone (where you retain control while sharing your data).

With your Private Cyberspace performing facial recognition on your photos yourself you do not have to expose photos to external parties.

Better Focus

A wealth of Information creates a poverty of Attention.
Herbert A. Simon

Time is generally more valuable than money and attention is always MORE VALUABLE THAN TIME. There is no point spending hours with someone who is not paying attention to you.

One of the major ways Cloud Platforms makes money is by taking away this most valuable aspect of your life - constantly interrupting your thoughts by advertisements and notifications.

It takes more than 20 minutes to 30 minutes to return to the original task after a distraction, yes 20 minutes NOT 20 seconds. As shown in Attention Wars both the profits to them and damages to you can be substantial.

Private Cyberspace allows you to CONTROL exactly when you want to focus on ONE thing and when you want to be inspired by DIFFERENT things.

With Private Cyberspace you access the Internet with the protection of satellite servers giving you a fully tunable online experience so you can conserve your attention for more important things.

Deep Learning Core

Currently Entity Agent consist of a deterministic code (traditional programming) with Deep Learning components.

We are looking to the possibility of replacing it with an Deep Learning based core. Some related open source projects:

Petty Reward

NO PAYMENT is normally needed until the income you generate from your Private Cyberspace has exceeded the minimum wage of your area. Any amount above that requires a small contribution (e.g. 1%), to pay for the community resources you consumed.
