The RobustLinks Mission
Our goal is to design and engineer more robust interaction between users on the Internet through more efficient information provisioning strategies in a distributed system. The Internet architecture was one commitment to a particular design that enabled certain markets to form. There are many others as yet unexplored. Our general solution strategy is to combine the industry's lessons learnt from the past four decades of work in Internet architectures (from layer 3 to 7) with behavioral underpinnings of user interactions, to design new interaction protocols. Our solution tactics is through the use a variety of tools from AI, CS, economics, psychology and sociology. Currently we are particularly interested in casual game mechanics.
We build incentives into layer 7 of the Internet.
The company was founded by an ex MIT research scientist at CSAIL at end of 2009. We are a young and flat engineer oriented company with a culture of smart and self-driven people who are also 'animals'.
Life at RobustLinks
We are currently a raw garage based startup located in NYC. We want people who know and care about the Internet, not just engineering but also its culture.
