Empowering Communities Through AI

Like all tools, Artificial Intelligence can be used to build or destroy.  We have partnered with Forward Edge-AI to create AI solutions that reflect the world we want to live in.

Public Democracy America’s Lab has partnered with Forward Edge-AI to learn from and channel the power of AI to build stronger networks that shield our communities from online and virtual fraud and scams.


To start, we’re taking on the robocallers that send out billions of robocalls and scam millions of dollars from innocent people.


How It Works

The Gabriel App creates a community of users working together to catch the bad guys. Users act as detectives to spot and report scammers before they can get away with crime. And the app has special features to let users set up special protections for their loved ones at higher risk for scams.  

Being a Gabriel detective benefits the community, but it also benefits the user. The Gabriel App awards cryptocurrency for anyone able to identify and report robocall scammers.

The Gabriel App is the first ever Robocall Blocker that uses Swarm Intelligence, AI, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Encrypted BlockChain Database and the power of 5G networks to stop unwanted calls, on all devices, across all service providers.

Why It Matters

While AI stands to make the world a better and brighter place, it also poses significant risks to those who don’t understand it—or the many ways it can be used against them. 


According to the Federal Trade Commission:  

“If you are getting a lot of robocalls trying to sell you something, odds are the calls are illegal.  Many are also probably scams.”

The Gabriel App is a community-driven solution that is contributing to a less-biased, safer digital world that better serves society and helps prevent bad actors from taking advantage of others.
