A New Project Aims to Create a Blockchain-Based AI Marketplace – The Merkle

  • The company wants to harness blockchain technology to make its artificial intelligence smarter.
  • One of these concepts involves a blockchain-based marketplace where artificial intelligence developers from all over the world can share their creations.
  • That is a rather intriguing concept, as it is one of the first times we’ve seen a company actively trying to bring AI and blockchain technologies together.
  • It may not be the Skynet threat so many are afraid of, but being able to share developments in the artificial intelligence sector may certainly get us there sooner or later.
  • Blockchain technology will only be used to power the new marketplace, rather than the AI technology itself.

The number of use cases for blockchain technology is virtually limitless. Although most efforts focus on the financial sector in one way or another, Hanson Robotics and their partners envision a very different future. The company wants to harness blockchain technology to make its artificial intelligence smarter. To that end, this group is working on a blockchain-based marketplace where AI developers can share their work.

The company wants to harness blockchain technology to make its artificial intelligence smarter. To that end, this group is working on a blockchain-based marketplace where AI developers can share their work.

It is quite an ambitious project by Hanson Robotics, OpenCog Foundation, Vulpen, ESA, and others. The Hanson Robotics company is best known for its  Sophia  robot (click the link to discover why it made headlines recently), yet it is also working on a few other projects. One of these concepts involves a blockchain-based marketplace where artificial intelligence developers from all over the world can share their creations.

That is a rather intriguing concept, as it is one of the first times we’ve seen a company actively trying to bring AI and blockchain technologies together. Everyone connected to this decentralized marketplace will be able to access the shared AI creations and use them to enhance existing robots. Additionally, they can use the software as a foundation to build bigger and better hardware in general. The project creates an unlimited number of possibilities; that much is certain.

This project goes by the codename of SingularityNET . It may not be the Skynet threat so many are afraid of, but being able to share developments in the artificial intelligence sector may certainly get us there sooner…
