Microsoft reveals a new Ethereum-based project
Microsoft has just revealed a new AI project that’s leveraging Ethereum blockchain.
The company plans to decentralize AI by allowing people to get easy access, share and run machine learning models via Ethereum.
“Leveraging blockchain technology allows us to do two things that are integral to the success of the framework: offer participants a level of trust and security and reliably execute an incentive-based system to encourage participants to contribute data that will help improve a model’s performance…”
The Daily Hodl continues to cite official notes on the subject and writes:
“Additionally, blockchains such as Ethereum have thousands of decentralized machines all over the world, making it less likely a smart contract will become completely unavailable or taken offline.”
We recommend that you head over to the complete notes on Microsoft’s official website in order to find out more.
