The scientific origins of our innovations are based on the founder's doctoral research on Governed Blockchains at the Imperial College London and his algorithmic developments conducted at The University of Oxford.
Based on our technical work and innovations, the XAIN Group was founded in London to develop governable Blockchain systems for corporations or clusters in medical and financial industries.
Shortly after, we extended our product portfolio and opened our new HQ in the Berlin Center for Aerospace & Astronautics to also offer extensive Blockchain based analysis solutions for our industrial partners.
We propose Blockchain Intelligence as a movement that offers companies and consortia bespoke governance and ownership over Blockchain solutions for their data, privacy, and security needs. We develop such solutions through novel combinations of Machine Learning, Cryptography, and Distributed Systems Engineering.
We design formally validated Governed Blockchain systems for organizations or clusters, based on a patented optimization procedure. Our systems meet the specific security, cost and robustness requirements. As such, our main fields are automatizations & the anonymized integration of data.
We offer systems, specifically designed to implement distributed database systems in industrial production. As such, our software solutions increase your data quality through generic algorithms and decrease the time to analyze and search important information.
As a research-led company, we not only base all our products on latest scientific results but also have a strong emphasis on building partnerships in industrial research projects. We look forward to learning about your R&D needs.
Leif-Nissen Lundbæk founded the XAIN AG as a resulting startup of his Governed Blockchain based research of his PhD thesis at Imperial College London and his Master project at University of Oxford. His work focuses mainly on the trusted computing and security gains of Blockchains in a governed manner in industry, particularly for financial services. Previously, he worked as an Analytics Engineer at Mercedes-Benz and as an Optimization Engineer for IBM as well as the Italian UniCredit Bank. He has received an M.Sc. in Software Engineering at The University of Oxford with distinction as well as an M.Sc. in Mathematics at Heidelberg University, magna cum laude.
Felix Hahmann has started his career in the IT of E.ON, the largest German energy producer. As such, he continued his career as a Software Engineer in Data Analytics (specifically Data quality) at Mercedes-Benz, while graduating in Computer Science. Further, he led various startup projects where he received first experience in Blockchain technology and, thus, co-founded the XAIN AG as a member of the Executive Board and as the Chief Information Officer as well as the Chief Human Resource Officer.
Michael Huth is a Professor of Computer Science at Imperial College London. His main interest lies on application-driven research in Cybersecurity, Mathematical Modeling, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. As such, he develops and formally verifies methods of the interaction of machines that understand human behavior and their security impliciations. Further, he focuses on Blockchain technology for trust infrastructures whereby he developed Governed Blockchains together with Leif-Nissen Lundbæk.
Elisa Pruhs joined XAIN as an IT Project Manager from Arctaek where she developed the ecommerce platform for children's fashion. She began her career as an IT Project Manager for the Berlin-based company HiSolutions AG, where she implemented an analytical search-based tool for offering licence-management as a service (LaaS). She pursued her Master degree in Applied Computer Science at Heidelberg University and previously earned a Bachelor degree in Computer Science at Humboldt-University of Berlin, magna cum laude.
During his career as an Electrical Engineer, Felix has worked on various large-scale projects. He started his career at Siemens, where he worked on production systems optimization, value stream analysis as well as on the automatization and optimization of test facilities. Before joining XAIN, he worked for Mercedes-Benz in data analytics and product marketing. At XAIN he now leads the development of marketing strategies. Further, he pursued his Master and Bachelor studies in Electrical Engineering.
Our team is based in our HQ in Berlin (Wildau), Germany, and in London, UK. We are able to offer projects and solutions throughout Europe, the UK and overseas.
