Launched German tech company Xayn has its security-focused web browser PrivacyIt allows users to regain control of data and search results through a seamless, private and transparent search experience.
Xayn draws on the latest research in AI privacy protection and ethical transparency according to European standards.
And there was a lot of talk about how much data companies like Google and Facebook keep about you, and what you want.
Like Firefox and Opera, Xayn promotes itself as an anti-Google, with a web browser – which includes a newsreader – that protects your privacy while providing private search results.
The company says its AI, which keeps you anonymous and can check your preferences, offers the best of both worlds.
One of the big problems with regaining your digital life from tech companies is how stable the products are, as the search engine has spent a long time tracking your history in order to anticipate what you need, and it’s hard to start over.
And for all of those competing platforms that provide the best protection for your privacy, the inherent risk is that search results will not be good.
Xayn hopes to bridge this gap by using artificial intelligence that the user can train in the early stages of use using the swipe method.
It says: The browser offers preference-based personalization in order to provide relevant search results, but it won’t know who you are.
She added: When you open the app, you are taken to the discovery page that shows you the relevant news headlines, where you can swipe left or right to reject or approve.
And Lev Nissen Lundbeck started Leif Nissen Lundbæk Working on Xayn as a research project while studying for his MA from Oxford University and PhD from Imperial College.
He was joined by Imperial College Professor Michael Huth, a specialist in cryptography and cybersecurity, as well as a former Lundbeck colleague (Felix Hahmann).
Xayn relies on a framework called XayNet, which loads anonymous machine learning data to a server before returning the enhanced model to your phone.
The company says: You must install Xayn instead of the usual web browser within your phone, but the innovative product is not as advanced as its competitors, despite its desire to topple Safari and Chrome browsers.
