Blockchain AI: Decentralizing The Language Of The Gods

It wasn’t that long ago that Artificial Intelligence (AI) was a distant dream. But automated vehicles are around the corner. Uber cars send data to the company’s research labs, to teach robots to drive. And what middle-class home is complete without an Alexa, organizing lives and shopping lists? So how does blockchain fit into all of this? Until recently, not very well. The two technologies developed in parallel, but rarely overlapped. But that may be about to change. During the Malta Blockchain Summit last week, Hong Kong-based engineering company Hanson Robotics, showcased Sophia: a social humanoid robot. She (if that’s the correct pronoun) still has limitations. Journalists have to ask their questions through a specially designed microphone that cuts out background noise, in a near-silent room. Her knowledge base is also limited; a Hanson engineer manages her interactions from a laptop hooked up at the back of the room. The wifi is irregular, so a long ethernet cable connects her to the back of the wall. Some of her responses are pre-programmed with a basic understanding of cryptocurrency, reflecting the background of most of the journalists in the room. Engineers explain that at the end of the conference, most of her responses and knowledge-base will be removed. But these are mild quibbles. Although the display is impressive, Hanson wants to do better. The end-goal is to have an autonomous robot, that can speak lucidly on topics without assistance and prodding from a host of engineers. Blockchain AI: Can they mix? Hanson Robotics has started collaborating with SingularityNET (AGI), a decentralized AI marketplace upon which Crypto Briefing has reported before. The end goal is for Singularity to become a platform where different AI entities can communicate and even trade with one another, using the exchange’s native AGI token. That’s not there yet, partly because there aren’t enough AIs around, and also because existing entities are effectively isolated. Sophia is a case in point: currently, Hanson Robotics has to manually manage what she knows and ultimately determine her responses and interactions with the outside world. SingularityNET believes their blockchain can be used as a data repository for AI entities to freely pull the information and data they need to actually function. “AIs have to operate from scripts because crucial data sets exist in siloes,” Arif Khan, SingularityNET’s VP for marketing, told Crypto Briefing after the press conference with Sophia. “This hinders AI development. Large tech companies still hold the keys to further development, but most work for-profit. What we can do with blockchain is effectively make this knowledge open-source”. Khan says that Sophia learns from her experiences, even during press briefings. This improves her responses and ability to think independently long term, but at the moment, there’s no way any of this information can be shared with other AIs. SingularityNET’s blockchain can be used as a databank for all of these experiences. When one AI learns something, other automatons can learn about it, too. “I may be being dramatic, but AI is sort of like the language of the gods”, Khan explains. “Currently loads of independent robotics companies are in an arms race with big tech. It’s great that AI is now a serious sector, but the motivations behind companies like Facebook is ultimately the shareholders dividend.” “Is this how we should enter this new era?” Khan asked, rhetorically. Sophia robot is just the beginning Robots may not literally walk amongst us yet (and Sophia doesn’t have legs), but they are penetrating all aspects of our lives. Like the internet, society will one day wake up and struggle to remember a world without artificial intelligence. Tech is hierarchical, and still governed by the bottom line. But the Blockchain’s contribution to AI might be to change this dynamic. If humans start manufacturing sentient life, blockchains can prevent it from being determined at the end of a corporate balance sheet.

Blockchain Could Be Crucial for Moving AI Tech Forward

Many startups are attracting capital and developing products to make artificial intelligence (AI) more accessible, as well as better protecting personal data via blockchain tech. Blockchain to Decentralize Artificial Intelligence Venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, and academics are rushing to embrace the awesome synergy resulting from the application of Bitcoin’s (BTC) 00 blockchain technology and artificial intelligence (AI). Dr. Ben Goertzel, CEO of SingularityNet and chief scientist at Hanson Robotics, affirms that blockchain might help make AI more accessible for small and mid-size companies. Indeed, he’s asserted that AI could be ‘democratized’ through the use of blockchain technology. According to The New York Times, Dr. Goertzel and Dr. Dawn Song, a computer science professor at the University of California, propose that: The blockchain could be a crucial way to push back against some of the most worrying trends facing the field of artificial intelligence. NY Times writes about How the Blockchain Could Break Big Tech’s Hold on A.I. @singularity_net https://t.co/oZA9C5Z1sL — Ben Goertzel (@bengoertzel) October 20, 2018 Likewise, DeepBrain’s management believes that blockchain can help small-size companies that do not have the necessary funding to break into the expensive AI industry. A company press release says: DeepBrain Chain is the world’s first AI computing platform powered by blockchain. It uses blockchain technology to help AI companies save up to 70% of computing power costs while protecting data privacy in AI training. Blockchain Key for Data Protection in the AI Environment One of the primary virtues of a centralized blockchain is that it eliminates intermediaries and any central authority. Decentralization is essential to allowing AI networks to exchange vast amounts of data without a singular authority in place controlling the data or the algorithms. Nathaniel Popper of The New York Times writes that several startups are already setting up blockchain-based marketplaces for trading data. For example, Popper refers to Ocean Protocol, which is a decentralized data exchange protocol for sharing data and services through the use of blockchain. According to the company website, Ocean is designed to unlock data for AI allowing sharing and selling in a secure environment. In this regard, many entrepreneurs concur with Dr. Song and Dr. Goertzel that blockchain has the power to facilitate a far-reaching distribution of data and algorithms. Therefore, blockchain is likely to play a key role in determining how AI will continue to develop. As a result, Song and Goertzel, in an interview with The New York Times, highlighted the importance of ensuring that machine learning capabilities should be under the control of the data owner rather than big companies. For example, people are concerned about the fact that Google and Facebook have immense power to obtain and store personal data. But to counteract this problem, Professor Song is now developing Oasis, a blockchain-based technique to protect the data being sold, “so that no one — not even the company using the data — will get a copy of it.” What are your thoughts on combining the power of blockchain and AI technologies?

The Race Is On to Power AI Machines

Over the past few years, the pace of development in artificial intelligence (AI) technologies has become increasingly rapid. This is leading to some impressive predictions about how the AI revolution will impact our lives over the next few years. For instance, Accenture claims that AI technology may double economic growth rates between now and 2035. What is driving this sudden leap forward in AI development? Well, the increasing availability of data and information is a crucial factor, along with innovations in AI algorithms. However, both of these factors would be irrelevant without the growing availability of computing power needed to drive AI machines. OpenAI released a report stating that since 2012, the amount of computing power needed to run the largest AI training algorithms has increased exponentially, doubling around every three and a half months. Contrast this to Moore’s Law, which experienced a doubling every 18 months, and the sheer volume is pretty staggering. Going forward, it becomes clear that if AI developments continue at the current pace, the providers of computing power have their work cut out for them if they want to keep up. . So where does the computing power for AI machines come from? As it stands, the market is dominated by big tech firms. All that computing power requires dedicated hardware and software, which big AI developers will buy at considerable costs. Therefore, the big tech firms are in a race to ensure that they can stay ahead of the competition by developing the very latest, greatest innovations in processors and cloud computing. The Big Guns Leading the Pack Leading the pack on the development of computing services for AI are AWS, operated by Amazon, and Microsoft. Amazon has obvious AI credentials in the form of its own Alexa robot. However, it also boasts household names such as Netflix and Pinterest among its clients. These platforms use AWS services to drive their own machine learning algorithms for delivering content tailored to user preferences. AWS announced two new updates in July, aiming to improve its offering that allows users to build and deploy new AI models in the cloud. In a bid to win market share from AWS, Microsoft recently announced their latest development of the Azure Data Box Edge, tailored hardware for running AI algorithms without the addition of any special processors. One of the newest clients is using this hardware to process photographs as part of its quality controls. Not to be outdone, Nvidia, which also supplies computing services to its AI clients, announced the release of its platform which allows the implementation of AI in medical devices. This would mean that AI technology can screen data sources such as X-rays or CT scans, generated from older devices. The big market players in computing power have extensive resources at their disposal, meaning they can focus on developing bigger and better chips, or on enhancing their cloud service offerings. However, market domination by a few big companies isn’t creating an environment of innovation among smaller AI developers. Companies like AWS and Microsoft can charge a premium for their computing services, which prices smaller developers out of the market. The Underdogs Entering the Track Smaller start-ups are now seeing the potential of blockchain to disrupt many industries where big players have historically dominated the markets. A core feature of blockchain is its use of distributed networks. Is now the time for blockchain to enter the race of AI computing providers? One company that believes so is Tatau, a blockchain-based distributed computing platform. Tatau is aiming to disrupt the provision of computing power in a similar way that Uber revolutionized the transportation industry. By harnessing the power of blockchain, the company believes it can become the world’s biggest supplier of computing, rivaling companies like AWS and Microsoft — but without even owning any computers. This model will aggregate GPU computing power from different sources such as miners, datacentres, and gaming platforms. Using a native payment token, enterprises can purchase computing power from the network and by deploying blockchain in this way, Tatau can provide computing power to its customers on an as-needed basis. There is no need for them to invest in expensive hardware or ongoing contracts for cloud computing. Similarly, there are other blockchain projects seeking to use the decentralized power of blockchain for the benefit of the AI market. DeepBrainChain and SingularityNET are two of the most notable examples. Both have shown initial success, demonstrating that there is a high level of support within the AI community for using blockchain as a means to democratize the availability of computing power. This is perhaps unsurprising, given the prohibitively high costs of smaller AI developers using techgiant companies for computational needs. Who Will Win The Race? The big tech players remain focused
