Information


I made my first electric circuit when I was 5, wrote my first program when I was 10 and made my first physics simulation when I was 15. I've been enthusiastic about technology since I was born.

Hi! I'm

t r o e l s

Tech enthusiast since 1983

Current employment

I am employed at Fetch.AI where I lead the software engineering team. We are building a ground-breaking technology using a combination of blockchain technology and AI.

About me

About me


I made my first electric circuit when I was 5, wrote my first program when I was 10 and made my first physics simulation when I was 15. I've been enthusiastic about technology since I was born and have worked with many different fields including algorithm design, quantum computing platforms and machine learning. Recently, I've mainly been interested in classical hardware architectures, machine learning, distributed ledgers and business development around these fields.

Tech for a better life

I believe that humans can build a better world by continuously develop, improve and refine the technology that surrounds us.

Building value for humanity

I strive towards building value in whatever I do, regardless whether I am working with quantum computing or health.

International recognised research

With multiple publications in high ranking journals such as Science and Nature Physics, my research is recognised internationally.

Connecting the world

Todays world is massively disconnected. Even though we see more and more peer to peer platforms (Uber, AirBnB), the platforms themselves does not provide interoperability. I am passionate about making the world more connected.

What I do

What I do


I am leading a team who is building a technology that combines blockchain technology with artificial intelligence. My role is to keep track of the bigger picture, provide day to day guidance as well as writing wasts amounts of code. We are building a truly ground breaking technology that uses AI/ML to provide a decentralised search functionality and a scalable blockchain to create cross-ecosystem integrations.


I've also worked on machine learning, FPGA design, quantum computing, optimisation, physics and many other things.

Coding

I spent a great part of my life coding. Most codes are done in C++ or Python. I have 20+ years of experience in C++ and 10+ in Python.

Rapid prototyping

Part of my activities include rapid prototyping where I work with building hardware proof-of-concepts. Typically, I use OpenSCAD for 3D designs and prototype boards for electronics, although I have some experience with Eagle CAD and similar software.

Skills

I use a wide variety of skills in my work. Below are some of my most useful skills and my own perception of my level.

Interests

Interests


Creating companies

Currently, I am playing an essential role in building Fetch.AI. In the past, I've experiemented with building consulting companies and luxury consumer goods retail businesses.

Decentralisation and AI

My key focus area is technology heavy companies. Specifically, I focus on blockchains and AI/ML based solution.

Tech exploration

I spend a great amount of time on general technology exploration. Naturally, I am a Kickstarter addict.

Why don't you take a break and enjoy these rotating LEDs? Yep, that's the kind of stuff you do when you have too much time.

Selected projects which I think are cool.

Decentralised intelligent search

5 Jan 2018 - now

At Fetch.AI we are building a truly innovative technology that allows search for IoT to exist in a decentralised ecosystem. We use decentralised market places to learn the grouping of items in an unsupervised manner to efficiently arrange the space.

Blockchains for Telco

1 Nov 2015 - 31 Dec 2017

Together with a skilled team, I've been exploring blockchains with focus on many different areas including media distribution, digital health, payment systems and other areas. This work was done while I was still part of Nokia.

Depth mapping

1 Dec 2015 - 1 Jun 2016

Together with colleagues we developed depth mapping algorithms based on the Potts model and improved them. We also developed FPGA codes and concepts related real-time depth map generation.

Hardware Bitcoin wallets

01 Feb 2014 - 31 Dec 2017

As the popularity of Bitcoin was rising, I started developing a Bitcoin hardware wallet. After joining Nokia, this project was adopted and accelerated in our research team. Over time, the focus has changed to a more general ledger enabled hardware solution.

Defining quantum speedup

01 Oct 2011 - 01 Oct 2014

I worked at ETH as a post doc in Matthias Troyers group where we studied D-Wave One and Two. With multiple publications in Science and a Nature Physics paper, our work is internationally recognised as research on the highest level.
