EFFECT.AI is excited to announce its partnership with DAIA, an alliance of serious participants in the AI & blockchain related ecosystems, coming together to collectively solve common challenges and create an amazing future.
DAIA: Decentralized Artificial Intelligence Alliance
The concept behind DAIA is that, by coming together in a more formal way, the AI-meets-blockchain projects of the world will be able to create a more and more formidable ecosystem, capable of meeting the world’s AI needs in a participatory, democratic and decentralized way.
DAIA will foster cooperation on software and hardware projects — supporting members in working together on building practical tools benefiting the decentralized AI community generally. It will coordinate the definition of standards, such as protocols and ontologies. It will organize events and media as appropriate, and will provide members with support on IP and legal issues and other matters of common importance. It will also affiliate with investment funds and philanthropic foundations interested in directing resources to decentralized AI, assisting them with sourcing and vetting investments and other operations as needed.
DAIA was initially announced by leaders of two projects operating at the intersection of AI and blockchain — Ben Goertzel and Simone Giacomelli from SingularityNET and Toufi Saliba from AI Decentralized. But the roster of member organizations is growing rapidly. At a meetup in Hong Kong Science Park after the Token 2049 event earlier mid 2018, SingularityNET leaders met with founders and leaders from a number of other blockchain/AI projects, resulting in broad enthusiasm for joining and contributing to DAIA. Now that the DAIA concept is being formalized into an active organization, we expect DAIA to assume increasing influence, serving to amplify and focus the power of its member organizations in the blockchain and AI worlds.
Ben Goertzel, CEO & Chief Scientist of SingularityNET, on DAIA: “To me, DAIA is more than just another industry organization, it’s a movement — a movement by a network of adventurous technologists and entrepreneurs around the globe, aimed at wresting control of the world’s AI and the data and computing power that feeds it from the handful of big tech companies and big governments that are currently threatening dominance.”
EFFECT.AI is developing a Decentralized Network for Artificial Intelligence and AI related services on the blockchain. EFFECT.AI’s main objective is to build a decentralized Network that will stimulate AI development and the creation of various AI services. The Network will be more democratic, accessible and easy to use than what is currently available.
The Effect Network will be launched in three overlapping phases:
Phase 1: Effect Force
Effect Force offers a unique solution, using a Global Human Workforce, to help companies sort, structure and enrich vast quantities of data, preparing the data for use in their own Machine Learning Solutions, enabling the use of Artificial Intelligence for all types of data analytics. It also allows for companies to outsource large amounts of work to a reliable and accurate workforce. Fair payment, attractive rates and improved accuracy give Effect Force its edge over the competition.
Phase 2: Effect Smart Market
The second phase is the creation of the Effect Smart Market, a decentralized marketplace that will further empower developers by allowing them to collaborate with others and to trade their algorithms and DApps on a fully Decentralized Network.
Phase 3: Effect Power
The third phase ties it all together by using the blockchain to distribute the processing power needed to run the newly created algorithms over a global network providing an alternative that is more reliable and scalable than traditional server farms.
