Alphabet Communication: Patent Granted by the USPTO “We have the Ability to Map the Global Population and Connect All Humanity”
TORONTO – Alphabet Communication was granted U.S. Patent No. 9,860,203 on Jan 2, 2018. AlphC revolutionary communication concept assigns an email address to every physical address in the entire world, creating the first complete global communication network. According to Shafin Valla the founder of AlphC,
“We are on the cusp of the biggest changes to the Internet since its inception.” Using the patented platform, the geo-coded email created can be used as the universal form of communication linking the entire global population for the first time. Valla continues, “The science of “Six Degrees of Separation” is now Zero.”
Addresses are authenticated via cell phone verification. All occupants of an address are linked via their email, to the geo-coded email created for their physical address. A message sent to the email of the address connects you to all occupants. As AlphC emails are geo-coded they cannot be duplicated, adding a layer of transparency and security that does not exist with current email.
According to Valla, “This method of communication does not exist in the world. It is new knowledge which comes with incredible reach and great responsibility.”
AlphC gives an unprecedented lifeline for governments to reach their citizens via their address. This capability provides the foundation for emergency communication, crisis mapping during disasters, logistical management of infrastructure and public registry.
Population migration can be tracked assisting with management of resources and increased efficiency for the government. Data transfer from Driver’s Licenses (DOT) and other government sources can be used to map the population of the country. There are far reaching possibilities with this technology, including the prevention of crime and terrorism.
Facebook is trying to map the global population via their Connectivity Labs using basic assumptions based on building size. Valla finds they are limited in scope. “AlphC platform serves a dual purpose, the ability to accurately map the global population and permit communication.”
The primary focus of AlphC remains emergency and crisis communication. The company’s preference is having Licensing Agreements that provide autonomy to countries and relevant authorities based on local needs and privacy issues, limiting barriers. The company is seeking partnership and alliances.
The company is represented by the intellectual property and technology law firm, Knobbe Martens.
