The KaaS blockchain and network define the infrastructure for a decentralized, democratized, skills-oriented global AI computing system and AI algorithm marketplace, based on existing hardware right now being used to mine cryptocurrencies.
The moment Ethereum switches from PoW to PoS, there is a real chance the market will react similarly to the reaction at the end of the DotCom boom. Many mining businesses will be hit hard, and the end result will be a lot of GPU cards on sale. We are proposing to unite all this freed processing power under the Kaasy network, offering a Decentralized Infrastructure As A Service solution for many use cases. The Kaasy network will not simply run the GPUs to continuously execute hashing functions, but offer a set of SDKs with which developers can expand their applications to optimize processing times via parallelization and computing load balancing. The blockchain keeping the Kaasy ledger will store both payments for rented processing time and algorithms optimized to run distributed calculations. The algorithms are organized as a distributed marketplace, where anyone can add a new algorithm and earn rewards when someone else makes use of it – the rewards are stored in the same blockchain. The goal of the kaasy.ai team is to develop a knowledge blockchain, where existing and new algorithms can be used to power machine learning, thus producing AI skills usable by the entire community, from their terminal of choice. The open-source blockchain code can be forked to create private knowledge blockchains, for tasks which may involve privacy concerns and other data restrictions. Use cases for the skills we envision include video processing, machine learning, molecular simulation, AI conversation partners, employee-as-a-service solutions, augmented and virtual reality solutions and real-time robotic fleet management. Skill rewards for complex skills are issued as a tree, where each complex skill payment is split between itself and the integrated simpler skills.
Philosophy behind the idea
Every evolutionary jump of humanity was achieved on the back of a disposable workhorse, be it biological (like actual horses), or manufactured (like steam, internal combustion or electric engines). If we look at the beginning of the XXth century, we can remember the tragic fate of the horse population at the end of the XIXth century. For the next evolutionary step in human societal development, everyone is looking towards AI. While the consensus is that Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is not a technical possibility in the very short term, we still have to look at the future and anticipate both opportunities and threats. In terms of goals, our end goal is to provide the entire human species with a communitydeveloped AGI based on open-source, publicly inspectable code. The short and medium-term goals consist of uniting a large community of AI specialists into an ecosystem of projects that gives them each a voice to express the directions they want AI development to continue. Given that in most technology endeavors, we can notice a winner-takes-all, power-law-distribution, it appears humanity has only one chance to get AGI right.
We don’t just want to build a new blockchain for a privately-owned AI, we are driving forward the community into new AI development endeavors, new opportunities, new public and private businesses, and a much better chance at a great future where humans and AIs collaborate and thrive together. We intend to develop an ecosystem of open-source and commercial applications which will create thousands of high-salary jobs in the next 5 to 10 years in companies all around the world. These companies will capitalize on the opportunity AI is today, creating better products, faster and potentially cheaper. We desire to construct the early building blocks for the Earth AGI. This may well be in the three most important developments of the early third millennium, alongside bioengineering and becoming a multi-planetary species.
