Trent McConaghy is a founder of Ocean Protocol. While still an undergraduate in the mid 1990s, he did AI research for national defense.
His first startup, ADA, focused on AI for circuit design. Synopsys acquired ADA in 2004. He then did a PhD at KU Leuven on creative AI, which was awarded #1 thesis worldwide in the field.
His second startup, Solido, used AI to help drive Moore's Law. Now, Solido is broadly used for modern chip design, from Apple to Nvidia to Sony. Siemens acquired Solido in 2017.
Trent wrote two critically acclaimed books on AI and circuit design. He’s written over 50 peer-reviewed papers and patents. More recently, he’s written groundbreaking essays on Token Engineering, decentralized autonomous AI, and Web3 business models. He has given invited talks at the UN, European Commission, Stanford, MIT, Berkeley, TedX, Jet Propulsion Lab, Santa Fe Institute, and more. He advises governments on AI and blockchain.
