Detailed description

Helios Neural Network is a data distribution platform focused on storing and indexing data required for Artificial Intelligence to grow and learn.  Instead of storing the data in expensive, traditional closed inaccessible databases, HNN stores data in nodes, provided by the users of Helios Neural Network.

The Helios Neural Network Blockchain stores only the contracts formed between actors defining their involvement in the Helios Neural Network.  The Helios Neural network is a custom built blockchain.  It features our custom proof of work application that rewards miners for storing, indexing and processing data on their local computers.  The distribution and control of the network is managed by custom smart contracts between the miners, the data providers and the data consumers.  The Helios Neural Network will fundamentally be able to store and process any indexable data however the platform is being tailored to provide optimum performance for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning applications.

The Helios Neural Network is powered by a peer to peer network of Helios Nodes.  The Helios node stores and indexes encrypted data on a partition of a node hosts hard drive.  The node application enables hosts on the network to transfer data, negotiate contracts, verify the integrity of the data blobs and receive payment for services rendered.  To participate in the network nodes must create a keypair which in turn forms the wallet address of the node.  All transactions are signed by the node using the wallet address and will in turn validated all signed transactions processed by the node.  This enforces accountability on the network and reduces the effectiveness of attacks to the network.


In Healthcare the systems of record are more complex and more multi-layered than any other industry. They are also lagging behind in their evolution to be interoperable with each other, which in turn creates extra effort for not only healthcare providers, but ultimately patients and their carers. 

Similar problem exists for Autonomous Vehicles, Financial Services and any other Artificial Intelligence application. Helios Neural Network is a brave new distributed network built to provide the next generation of AI applications with all of the data they will ever need. 

Be it in cloud or in hosted data centres, the traditional approach to providing compute power creates and enormous cost overhead in order to provide grunt that meet the requirements of Big Data compute through cavernous algorithms for deep neural networks. The remedy for this multi-faceted problem is Helios Neural Network.


Helios Neural Networks platform will uplift the cost and compute payload into a distributed network via a custom built Blockchain comprised of distributed nodes. The nodes will be rewarded for storage and compute proportional to the contribution made to the network. 

Using this approach, the Helios Neural Network will not only provide computing power for researchers and AI applications but also allow access to low cost unlimited distributed storage that is catalogued, immutable, secure and anonymised. 

AI vendors, through compliance will be able to send their existing data into the Helios Neural Network providing an immediate cost saving on infrastructure. Many AI vendors are currently partnered with existing research providers for data access; The Helios Neural Network Platform will provide means to leverage these partnerships with defined smart contracts ensuring any stipulations for restrictions on data access are upheld where applicable. 

The Helios Connect applications will provide access into and out of the Helios Neural Network platform using existing industry standard protocols. This will ensure existing applications can leverage the power of Helios without any development on their side.

To ensure transparency, the network will be able to be queried for as-is state at any point and will be able to return results from SQL-type queries that comply with bespoke requirements and contract criteria. This approach will ensure that the confidentiality of any stored data is upheld to the highest level possible.


Helios Economy
The HNN token is the sole method of transaction on the network and participating  nodes are rewarded relative to their level of contribution in HNN tokens.

Helios Health Connect
A Health Industry specific Helios Connect application that natively supports anonymisation of data using industry standard integration frameworks.

Helios Automotive Connect
Through a custom HNN built App people will be able to mine HNN tokens while driving by contributing their vehicle’s data into the network simply via the OBD II port found in every vehicle.
