Topic: Meet Computes, the new decentralized, distributed mesh computer - Chris Matthieu and Roy Van de Water

Speakers: Chris Matthieu and Roy Van de Water Summary:

Billions of CPUs and GPUs are idle around the world and yet most companies lack the computing capacity to process Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and massive real-time analytics for IoT. Computes, inc. harnesses these wasted computing resources to create the world’s first mesh computing platform for business and the greater good.

Our mission is to become the world’s largest computing company while owning no infrastructure.


Chris Matthieu is the President & CEO (and founder) of Computes, Inc. (, the world's first decentralized and distributed mesh computing platform. Computes can harness the world’s idle (or wasted) CPUs & GPUs for businesses and the greater good eliminating the line between cloud and fog/edge computing delivering infinite computing everywhere.

Prior to founding Computes, inc., Matthieu was the Director of IoT Engineering for Citrix. In this role, Matthieu led technical decision-making for the company’s IoT solutions. Matthieu joined Citrix through the acquisition of Octoblu, a revolutionary real-time IoT platform, where he served as the co-founder and CTO. Octoblu connects things, systems, people and clouds to a global mesh network allowing users to automate and control design flows, processes, and sensor data, and analyze/react to real-time events and messages as well as big data trends and anomalies. Matthieu brings 30 years of experience in driving the development and launch of disruptive technologies to create new market opportunities as well as enhance enterprise product portfolios with emerging technologies. Prior to co-founding Octoblu, Chris was the founder of Nodester, an open-source Node.JS PaaS which was acquired by AppFog and the founder of Teleku, a communications-as-a-service cloud platform which was acquired by Voxeo. Chris was also the founder of Digital Voice Technologies, the creator of the first VoiceXML-powered voice browser, which was acquired by Ideas & Associates. His experience to date spans a wide portfolio of emerging technologies including IoT, robotics, artificial intelligence, AR/VR, autonomous drones and vehicles, the blockchain, HPC, RF, and wearables. Matthieu holds a bachelor of science degree in Business and CIS from the Northern Arizona University. Follow him on Twitter: @ChrisMatthieu
