It's a scam.

Care to elaborate?

[–]BodetGrrla 1 point2 points  (1 child)

first question. why do you need blockchain for this?

[–]knives_n_sunglasses 0 points1 point  (0 children)

it's in their white paper. they propose a decentralized marketplace for AI goods and services.

Worthy investment or no..?

Unless they're writing their AI in Urbit and implementing Nock/Hoon on the blockchain, this will have absolutely zero effect on AI.

And if they are writing their AI in Urbit and implementing Nock/Hoon on the blockchain, it will also have absolutely zero effect on AI.

Because blockchain technology is the biggest scam since laetrille. It's a solution in search of a precipitate. The only reason it's not an ex-parrot is because it never was an avian of any kind. It's pushing up daisies. It's pining for the fnords. Hail Eris. All hail Discordia.

It is supposed to solve the biggest problems of AI, namely 1) small companies don't have the big datasets that Google or Facebook have 2) new startups can't offer complete services, they might have best translating service but they lack image recognition AI... so it is again big companies that rule the AI world This could decentralize the market and really boost innovation. It will support startups, while using the big player's services, so it would be helpful for everybody. I wouldn't call this scam.

For the amount of money they're talking about, you could fund a github equivalent for decades.

Does any of that require a blockchain infrastructure?

How else would AI agents directly pay each other for data and services? You think they should call up a bank?

I think it’s a great opportunity for a surge of funding into AI. The team is solid and with all the buzz around cryptocurrencies, we can propel ourselves toward realizing singularity.
