Ontology Partners with Ubitus, Largest GaaS Service Provider in Northeast Asia
Ontology has announced a strategic partnership with Ubitus, a world-leading cloud gaming platform and the largest GaaS (GPU-as-a-Service) service provider in Northeast Asia. Ontology will provide comprehensive blockchain technology support for Ubitus, including data exchange, data identity, smart contracts, and other services. Both parties will work to build a decentralized AI computing ecosystem at application level to support the game industry and cross-chain development.
After AlphaGo defeated the world champion of Go, the public realized the extent to what AI could achieve. Likewise, the machine learning world, opened up by open-source DeepMind, amazed the scientific community. Now, the game industry has also carried out research in AI and deep learning. Game design with AI not only improves user experience, but also expands to new industrial applications such as medicine and unmanned vehicles. Thus, the game industry and AI have become an important part in the development of modern science and technology, and their deep integration will continue to bring more remarkable changes.
However, in some situations, the limitation of professional talent and equipment resources has resulted in technical barriers, which makes the formerly booming game industry overly centralized, which has had negative effects on creativity and innovation.
Based on the UbiDocker virtualization technology developed by Ubitus and combined with their experience in cloud gaming and computing, Ubitis has launched a distributed AI ecosystem, and developed SDKs and APIs to assist game application developers to import Computer Vision, machine learning, deep learning, and other AI applications to make development easier.
By integrating Ontology’s high-performance underlying architecture, Ubitus can make use of blockchain, smart contracts, and other technologies to save in AI development costs and ensure all users in the ecosystem share mature AI models and large training databases, which bring great convenience and potential to game industry partners.
At the same time, both parties will also carry out in-depth cooperation in product and technology promotion, information sharing, ecosystem construction, and community. Ubitus will also introduce cloud game content and developers to the Ontology ecosystem.
Speaking of this strategic cooperation, Wesley Kuo, Chief Executive Officer of Ubitus said:
“The next trend in the game industry is AI, blockchain, and cloud gaming. The high-profile entry of Google and Microsoft into the cloud game industry shows that the market will become more and more prosperous and there will be more AAA-level games that will release games and cloud games simultaneously. Ubitus not only provides a cloud gaming service platform for game developers with years of industry experience, but has also set up a dedicated blockchain department to explore possible business opportunities. We look forward to making full use of Ontology’s distributed trust technology and build a decentralized AI computing power ecosystem with our cooperation, eliminating industry barriers so that the game industry can embrace more good ideas which will bring a better game content and gaming experience to players”.
Chief Strategy Officer of Ontology, Andy Ji, believes that:
“In recent years, blockchain, AI, and other technologies have been the focus of attention. This cooperation combines Ontology’s underlying public chain technology, smart contract, digital identity, and data exchange with Ubitus’ rich experience in AI computing power, which will bring new blood into game application and development. We look forward to building the industry’s future with Ubitus”.
