The ongoing AMA series is an opportunity for our users and fans to get to know the Brave team, and, as of recently, guests from Brave’s partners.
Ben Livshits (Chief Scientist) and Gonçalo Pestana (Sr. Research Engineer) from Brave participated in the latest Ask Me Anything on r/BATProject. The pair fielded both pre-submitted and live questions from Redditors about the THEMIS protocol, the ongoing THEMIS RFC&C event, and the team’s research and plans for the progressive decentralization of the Brave Ads and Rewards infrastructure.
Ben Livshits is Chief Scientist for Brave Software. He is also a Reader at Imperial College London and an affiliate professor at the University of Washington. Ben is the author of over 100 academic papers, dozens of patents, and multiple tech transfer awards for bringing research into practice.
Gonçalo Pestana is a Senior Research Engineer on the Brave Research team. His current work is focused around the THEMIS protocol and R&D for privacy-preserving antifraud and reputation systems for BAT.
