Overview

Dbrain is blockchain platform to turn raw data into AI for business.

Project stage

Prototype

Detailed description

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.

Problem

Blockchain technology helps us meet many of AI’s current challenges. Using existing commercial computation infrastructure allows us to build an affordable, scalable toolkit for developing, integrating, and deploying AI apps. Currently, the most important practical challenges for widespread AI adoption are a shortage of high-quality datasets, unreliable data security and unreliable data quality, and the lack of a common framework shared by all parties interested in AI production.

Solution

Dbrain is an open blockchain platform for turning raw data into real-world AI solutions. We make AI accessible to businesses and allow anyone to earn money for their effort. The platform automates most of the data preparation and human-in-the-loop workflow. It provides crowdworkers with a user-friendly labeling and validation tool based on a unique web application and Telegram bot. Blockchain protocols and internal cryptocurrency ensure transparency and fair revenue distribution among all stakeholders.

Features

PICARD Protocol

The PICRAD protocol allows training models with no human access to data at all. Due to the protocol we provide few labeled data which has no value for business to implement algorithms on it. This is how data keeps safe and secured.
