Dbrain 2017-12-15 – 2018-03-31
Dbrain is an award-winning open blockchain platform to collectively build AI apps. It links crowdworkers and data scientists to transform raw data into real-world AI solutions for businesses, creating a win-win situation for all participants in the AI market. With Dbrain, anyone with a connected device can do simple tasks of data labeling and get paid instantly in cryptocurrency. Data scientists use the resulting datasets to train neural networks and build AI apps. Businesses use existing AI solutions or specify new ones to serve their particular needs. After securing $2.5M in seed funding, Dbrain has reached a significant milestone by releasing the Alpha version of the platform, including a web app and a Telegram bot, and is main award winner at the biggest ICO Pitch Competition organized by d10e in Silicon Valley in 2018. The Dbrain team is made up of industry-renowned professionals and has already launched several AI products that we will be expanding on the Dbrain platform.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) happens to be the next big thing. AI is all about data. Datasets used for machine learning are still labeled by hand, which requires a lot of effort. This creates a lot of friction: labeling quality is not guaranteed, and the initial source data is not secured. Dbrain allows people to work together in secure, seamless, integrated processes for buying, designing, and building AI apps, from start to finish.
Dbrain is an open blockchain platform that links crowdworkers and data scientists enabling them to transform raw data into real-world AI solutions. Crowdworkers do simple tasks of data labelling and validation, and are paid instantly in cryptocurrency for their work. Data scientists use the resulting datasets to train Neural Networks (NN) and build AI apps. Businesses use existing AI solutions or specify new ones to serve their particular needs. Dbrain automates AI production and data workflow by providing efficient tools to all parties, including a web application, a Telegram bot, and a mobile app.
Blockchain technology helps us meet many of AI’s current challenges. Using the blockchain, we can confidently manage high-quality data labelling, security concerns, intellectual property rights, and international micropayments. Using existing commercial computation infrastructure allows us to build an affordable, scalable toolkit for developing and deploying AI apps.
We use blockchain protocols and an in-house cryptocurrency to power the AI production cycle. The SPOCK protocol validates data label quality, ensuring the most accurate datasets possible. The PICARD protocol ensures the security of confidential data and automatically manages relations and fair revenue distribution between stakeholders. Dbraincoin (DBR) is an ERC-20 cryptocurrency to exchange for work, datasets, and AI app usage.
Anyone with a connected device can join Dbrain and get a role in building Industry 4.0. Our platform connects exploding demand for hand-labeled AI data with the abundant supply of global crowdworkers. In particular, we reach 2 billion unbanked people in low-wage countries, offering them cryptocurrency income in exchange for data labeling and validation. Integrating this global workforce into its platform, Dbrain provides a secure, unified infrastructure to supercharge businesses through accessible, high-quality AI products.
Right now, AI is off limits to all but the wealthiest and most powerful operations. Dbrain makes AI affordable to more customers. We make AI buildable by more developers. We make AI profitable for more workers. We democratize AI.
