The GISAD Institute

From the perspective of the citizens of Europe, GISAD wants to develop a digital system (EU-D-S) that can compete with gatekeepers and the social credit system. The aim of GISAD is to accompany the preparation of a holistic Marshall Plan, as requested by the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen. At the heart of the Marshall Plan is a digital concept adapted to civil rights and diversity. In the case of individual measures without an overall system of their own, there is a risk for Europe of losing system competition against other economic areas such as a centrally controlled China.

With its own concepts developed throughout 30 years, GISAD advises the European Commission and the German Bundestag. For the Marshall Plan, Europe should focus on three goals:

  1. The optimal processing and easy utilisation of digital data, while maintaining diversity and performance-oriented integration of all parties involved in the value creation.
  2. The stigmatisation-free, lifelong digital involvement of all citizens with incentives for self-development.
  3. Digitally guaranteeing the necessary state tasks to preserve the security of citizens, the economy and the state, while maintaining pre-digital democratic achievements.

As many companies as possible should be integrated into the generated value creation through decentralised Open Source structures.

The balance between convenience and self-determination must be taken into account. Digitalization relieves people of routine tasks. This usually results in more third-party determination and the loss of a performance-related share of value. This applies to states, companies and citizens in the same way. This is to be resolutely opposed.

In addition, GISAD develops participation concepts to promote self-determination among broad population groups. This will enable citizens to fully use their untapped potential. Economic growth, prosperity and satisfaction are the result.

What such an infrastructure could look like from a political, business and technical perspective is described in detail in Infrastruktur für eine Digitalverfassung .

Projects are now developed from an entrepreneurial point of view with the aim of obtaining a short-term ROI, where the consumer is often more a means to an end. From the point of view of shareholder value, the consumer must be at the centre of the long-term view of any company.

In the blueprint for a digital society , essential prerequisites for a successful digital transformation were defined by GISAD initiator Olaf Berberich:

Technology must at any one time play a clear role as a subordinate helper and must not monitor, manipulate or dominate the people!

  • Target data that is not stored in a central IT system and thus not widely divulged to the public cannot be targeted.
  • Decentralised concepts reduce the complexity of technology and increase the difficulty for cyber-attacks and manipulation.
  • The owners of the data must also retain the digital right to their personal data and digital works.

GISAD works in accordance with the Trusted WEB 4.0 concept. Trusted Web 4.0 is the integration of all available resources on the web within a global system. Machines, devices and people are accessible globally, organised in decentralised, anonymised structures. Trusted Web 4.0 reveals pre-digital society structures. The value-added chains will be re-organised.

The Institute will remain in the foundation stage until renowned individuals / organisations have been selected to participate in GISAD.

GISAD fundamentally studies three main aspects of the digital transformation:

Social structure relevance

WAN Anonymity

Decentralisation
