CARV, the largest modular data layer for gaming and AI, and Google Cloud have joined forces, beginning with an insightful web3 panel discussion incorporating AI to promote user data ownership and ethical development across gaming and other cutting-edge verticals.

Kicking off with the “Google x CARV AMA: Data Democracy in Gaming and AI” webinar, both companies embarked on a journey to discuss how CARV's innovative data layer can work with Google Cloud's world-class infrastructure and services. As a result, users can benefit from top-tier infrastructure services to process their data, maximizing its value and minimizing costs.

When it comes to gaming, “data is, of course, very important to understand the player and whether we can use that data to develop the game further,” said Michael Yung, Strategic Analyst at Google Cloud. But, he added: “It's not easy to find out whether data is high quality or whether the data source is good or ethical. Using data is one thing but qualitative data is another thing [entirely].”

CARV is developing a modular data layer that serves as a middleware between infrastructure providers and upper-layer applications in gaming and AI, thereby tackling data quality and ethics challenges head-on. Further, CARV's protocol ensures stringent privacy and integrity standards, while Google Cloud provides the secure, high-performance global infrastructure to process user information at scale seamlessly.

“We are here to help and I'm pleased to see CARV is our partner,” Yung stated, highlighting Google Cloud's commitment to enabling innovative and decentralized web3 experiences.

For Paul Delio, Chief Business Officer at CARV, the collaboration represents a significant win: “It’s good to know that Google is on the side of empowering users and developers with data,” Delio said. “Together, Google Cloud and CARV are poised to usher in a new era of data value.”

The CARV ecosystem already supports over 700 games and AI apps, delivering optimized data and infrastructure solutions to advance web3 across multiple verticals. Now backed by Google Cloud's platform strengths, as well as collaboration with other top-tier providers like Aethir, users can securely leverage premium cloud capabilities while maintaining data ownership and control.

Key discussion points in the webinar, which was also joined by Today and AVALON, included integrating web2 and web3 data to return sovereignty to users for personalized AI experiences, as well as how an open data layer can maximize value for stakeholders like end-users, developers, and gaming companies building on web3.

The collaboration’s full scope will be detailed in the coming weeks. To learn more about how Google Cloud is supporting web3, visit Additionally, for more about CARV’s highly anticipated node sale, set to begin on June 3, 2024, for whitelisted participants and June 5, 2024, for the public, visit
