Ex-Google Technology Lead Officially Joins Hyperion

Founding member of global database and compute platform Picolo Lab, and ex-Google senior software engineer Dr. Arunesh Mishra officially joins Hyperion– the biggest global decentralized MapChain (Hyperion Blockchain) — as Chief Engineer. Dr. Mishra was also the winner of Google Founder’s Award, founding member of Google’s location service team, and early contributor to Google Map service. He has led Google Android team to build crowdsourced wifi location algorithms on Android that serve more than 2 billion users from scratch per day. As an experienced Android engineer, he is good at building efficient Android service to deal with location data and scalable P2P communication system, and helped Google build P2P network and distributed system protocol. As technology framework is vital to build blockchain infrastructure, the new hiring will accelerate Hyperion team to achieve decentralized map service and become killer public blockchain. Hyperion is building up the very first idea of One Map for the World, to converge the scattered Geospatial Information and metadata to one spatial data infrastructure, and provide trusted and useful map service to global users.

Hyperion has hired ex-Google location service founding member

Ex-Google location service technology lead joins Hyperion as Chief Engineer

Founding member of Google’s location service team, Google Map service early contributor, Dr. Arunesh Mishra officially joins Hyperion — the biggest global decentralized MapChain (Hyperion Blockchain) — as Chief Engineer. Dr. Mishra has been working at Google for ten years, most recently as Senior Software Engineer in location team. He has more than eight years engineering experience on Android, including building Android network layer and scalable peer-peer communication system. As the technology lead, he has led Google Android team to build crowdsourced wifi location algorithms on Android that serve more than 2 Billion users from scratch per day.

After leaving Google in 2017, Dr. Mishra founded Picolo Lab, which currently builds database expansion layer for Ethereum. Picolo Lab is a fast, scalable, fully decentralized, globally distributed transactional database network for blockchain based applications with solid backgrounds in building scalable systems that serve billions of users every single day.

Hyperion is building up the very first idea of One Map for the World, to converge the scattered Geospatial Information and metadata to one spatial data infrastructure. One Map will be achieved through a global decentralized MapChain ecosystem based on spatial consensus protocol, which will benefit 10 billion people in a global scale when map autonomy is achieved. Hyperion has been working with Picolo Lab in the past to build the most efficient compute solutions for MapChain consensus.

New Hire strengthens location privacy and decentralized map service

Dr. Mishra’s interests and strengths include but not limited to: building peer-peer networking and distributed system protocols for Blockchain Infrastructure, deep learning for mobile applications that can scale massively to support a few billion users every day. In addition, he cares about data privacy issues and dedicates to developing location privacy and security technologies that benefits users in everyday life.

The new hiring will solve the current challenges Hyperion team encountered, and reinforce to achieve decentralized Map Economy quicker with secure and scalable spatial consensus infrastructure and efficient peer-peer node running on mobile devices in the future.

About Hyperion

Hyperion MapChain aims to solve real-life map data problems and achieve One Map solution for everyone, by providing trusted and private location data based on spatial consensus, and empowers everyone to build, own and govern the value of location data. Hyperion launched Map3 (decentralized map service network) at the beginning of the year, enabling domestic and overseas home computer users to join early as edge nodes and contribute to increase the efficiency of decentralized map network service. The number of Hyperion global community has reached 72,809 by the end of March.
