Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain: Mind.AI

Mind AI, a startup based in Seoul that is dedicated to blockchain development and AI (Artificial Intelligence) technologies, is creating a new approach to this technology that eliminates barriers to entry into the field: talent shortages and cost of computing capacity.

A future in which Artificial Intelligence is dominated by a small technological oligopoly could lead us to the dystopian future controlled by a robot that Hollywood continues to warn us about.

That’s why Mind AI, a startup based in Seoul that is at the forefront of the intersection between blockchain technology and AI, is developing a new approach to AI that eliminates those high barriers to enter the field .

“We are creating an ecosystem in which anyone around the world can participate in the education of an artificial intelligence,” says Isaac Bang, project leader for Mind AI.

The plan? To democratize access to AI through a database of collective collaboration.

“The operation of Mind AI depends on two critical components: the AI ​​main engine and the ontology database,” says John Doe, chief scientist at Mind AI. “Ontologies, or accumulated knowledge, are the fuel for the AI ​​engine, without them, the AI ​​engine can not perform any reasoning.”

These two components, however, remain separate. “The central engine of AI is centralized, while the ontology database will be distributed and will be jointly owned by all those who contribute and present ontologies,” explained Mr. Doe. In the future, Mind AI plans to decentralize the AI ​​central engine.

This means that Mind AI can not operate as a centralized entity and use the power of artificial intelligence for personal or malicious interests, since the community of ontologists (co-owners of the ontologies) can vote to activate a switch to disable access to the Ontological database.

The same protection can be applied to any agent that tries to use Mind AI and the ontology database for applications that the community considers unethical.

“Our motor is capable of reasoning, but it must be given knowledge, that is, ontologies,” says Mr. Bang. “An ontology would be the fact that” objects that have mass are subject to the gravitational force of the earth. “These canons are like shortcuts.”

“People can help artificial intelligence overcome previous artificial intelligence technologies, like IBM Watson, to modern cars with their own driving and more, which are considered second wave artificial intelligence technology. People can take us to the third wave of AI. “Mr. Bang says

“We make a multitude of ontologies of people from all over the world, and each person who contributes by contributing an ontology is then co-owner of the ontology database used by artificial intelligence to carry out his reasoning,” says Mr. Bang. “And, in that sense, while participating in the education of this AI, you can influence how it is used.”

This means that a group of people could, for example, block a military department from using Mind AI to create autonomous weapons. Immutable and decentralized, Mind AI could become a new way to advance AI, moving the industry away from its elitist realities and its limited access.
