Overview

The blockchain platform for universal registration, identity validation, audit, and coordination of A.I. agents and autonomous software.

Prototype

Detailed description

The BotChain was created by the team at Talla Inc. After more than two years of building intelligent, AI-driven bots for the enterprise, Talla began pursuing their idea for BotChain. Talla is based in Boston, Massachusetts and has raised over $12 million dollars in venture capital, making it one of the most well-funded startups focused on building A.I. autonomous agents for the enterprise. The leadership team represents decades of experience in software development, Artificial Intelligence, startups, and innovation.

BotChain is a bot registration, identification, audit, and marketplace platform built to utilize the public Ethereum blockchain and focused on businesses. BotChain will provide a platform for business bots to be managed. Bot builders will incorporate BotChain capabilities into their bots so that businesses can utilize the management capabilities. The BotChain platform will provide businesses with bot management capabilities such as audit trails of bot actions (what they did and why), bot identity management, knowledge sharing, and skill sharing.

Problem

Transparency: Currently, no system exists to map an auditable, decentralized trail that reflects the autonomous decisions made by bots. Nor does any system offer a clear path to retrain machine learning models to address bad machine behaviors. The example of “Tay” is a gross but reasonably benign example of why AI audit transparency is critical.

Standardization: To reach maximum bot efficiency and return opportunity, there is a glaring need for standard protocols for autonomous systems which allow bots to communicate and, therefore, synchronize work across the network. This common AI management infrastructure does not currently exist.

Open Commerce: As AI innovations progress and bot designs grow in complexity, the market remains fragmented. Developers, software companies, and enterprise consumers struggle to leverage advancements and capitalize on innovations from others, meaning the cycle of industry performance stalls. BotChain will establish the commercial environment for third parties to develop and acquire skill and knowledge modules to upgrade bot performance.

Solution

BotChain is the decentralized platform for AI transparency, compliance and collaboration:

  • Universal identity management
    • Ecosystem verified Bot developers, software and instances
    • Searchable and verifiable directory of registered Bots
  • Immutable decision and action logging
    • Support for audit and compliance with seamless API-like interfaces for continuous hashing of all Bot action and decisions
  • Bot certification
    • An industry seal of verified identity and continuous decision logging
  • Communication and sharing protocols
    • Knowledge and skill modules from other certified Bots to accelerate AI development and collaboration
