Some time ago we had a tricky interview with developers working on machine learning issues.

We were wondering which libraries, learning resources and frameworks the developers use, why they choose that particular stack, what problems they face with while using technologies of the selected stack or training models: infrastructure issues related to computation capacities and to implementation of the final product.

Over 80 specialists from different countries took part in the study, at the same time 10 people didn’t find that interview interesting. We are thankful for all who shared their opinion and presenting the results of our survey.


The amount of computing used in the biggest AI experiments keeps getting doubled every 3.5 months. This can be proved by analytical work conducted by the OpenAI[1] research group. The trend of increasing computation capacity has been partly determined by development of equipment able to handle a bigger number of operations per second. However, it might also be explained by researchers’ new approaches to use a greater number of chips in parallel.
The trend of shifting focus to use parallelism is the starting point for our further researches and developments.
To make the advantages of parallel computations more effective, it is necessary…

Thanks to everyone who had interest in our company. At the moment, we have received several proposals that allow us to continue our work in accordance with the plans. Thus, the presale stage is closed for the purchase of tokens.

As for our plans and achievements during this period: we have made great progress in implementing the platform. In the 3rd quarter all participants of the press will have access to testnet and alpha-version of Pallium.

We would like to note that Pallium is now an Open Source project, and we are interested in the community of developers participating in…

Such phenomenon as Artificial Intelligence has already become an inevitable part of our lives, even if we don’t realize it: Google robots that rank websites, analytics, drones, generation of songs, poems and books — the current advances already impress, and it’s only the beginning.

Although the creation of so-called Artificial Super Intelligence will take pretty much time, it’s being developed and improved at a tremendous rate, and many IT experts express their concerns towards the relationships between humanity and AI-based machines. Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Stephen Hawking, and many other innovators alike warn us that AI can go out of…

Our team completed the first stage of the Road Map. We’ve come a long way preparing for the pre-ICO, as we’ve set the foundation for the upcoming ICO, which starts on August 1st, this year.

We prepared a brief report for subscribers and investors of what we have done, as well as announced our future plans.

🇪🇪 Company registration in the jurisdiction of Estonia

Yes, we did it, now we conduct our activities on behalf of the Estonian company Neocortex R&D Ltd. Initially, we planned to register in the jurisdiction of Gibraltar, but due to the strict legislation at the time of registration, we were forced to change…

Agents are an important concept of Pallium. At the abstract level, agents are isolated entities with a certain decision-making system, the ability to interact with each other and the outside world within instructions written in the smart contract. Pallium’s agents also has their own “account” in the form of an internal cryptocurrency called SPIKE.

The international Federation of Intelligent Physical Agents, which aims to promote the ideas of multi-agent systems in the field of practical applications, gives agents the following definition:

An “agent” is an entity that resides in some environment from which it receives data and that reflects events…

The Myelin Blockchain acts as decentralized storage for intelligent agents, which in turn contains AI models, agent states, and the code of the managing contract. The managing contract is used for changing the agent’s state. You can execute code of any difficulty to modify the agent’s status that will run on all nodes of the network, and some nodes called miners, guarantee that these changes will be difficult to reverse. Thus, Myelin creates conditions, in which all changes made in this repository (the development of agents, and their state’s modifications over time) are irreversible. …


Pallium Network is the distributed computation network for machine learning.
