Trust Machines Lab

At the Trust Machines Lab we study and develop trust-verification principles in blockchain ecosystems and generative AI. These are dynamic technology environments that people use in private and business lives, and therefore require viable design.

We have limited spots for Ph.D. students, visiting scholars and curious professionals from start-ups, organisations and companies. Please register your interest with the lab’s research director at t.petzold(at)

We also offer courses for people to learn how to build in Web3 and generative AI in a viable way — to prepare for a career or a career change with Web3 and generative AI. This includes, for instance, token ecosystem design, X2Earn modeling, DAO building, generative AI implementation in management and everyday life.
