Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are very popular in the cryptocurrency world today. These tokens can take many forms, ranging from a simple image to an artificial intelligence. Find out how Humans.ai wants to bring artificial intelligence to the forefront using blockchain tools.
Artificial intelligence at the service of humans
In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has benefited from numerous developments and has found itself in the spotlight. This strong development has led to various questions regarding the ethical side of certain projects.
The objective of Humans.ai is to ensure that humans remain in control of these AIs, so that they are not used in a malicious way. To do this, the platform will arm itself with blockchain technology, and in particular non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
The project aims to be a creative studio that offers various AI tools so that developers can thrive and share their creations. The blockchain will transform these various creations into NFTs, in order to add transparency, accountability, and long-term governance.
A story in several chapters
Like any good story, Humans.ai’s story will be broken down into several major parts.
Currently, the platform’s adventure is starting with the first chapter: synthetic media. The first creations will be content related to the media domain, such as gestures, personality or someone’s voice. Thus, creators will be able to use these different tools to elaborate new contents with the help of artificial intelligence.
Two other chapters are announced for the moment, but without precise date:
- the second chapter will highlight AI NFTs for the medical field;
- the third chapter will focus on AI NFTs for the financial sector.
In order to ensure the safety of AIs and guarantee ethical use, the platform combines the transparency of NFTs and blockchain with the “Proof of Human”.
This “Proof of Human” allows NFTs and their use to be verified by human third parties. Moreover, it also allows to prove that NFTs remain under the supervision of a human.
The uses of NFTs
NFTs are the keystone of the Humans.ai project. Indeed, it will be possible to create an NFT of an artificial intelligence, an algorithm or a database, and then make them available on the platform. After that, it will be possible to make applications out of it. These various NFTs will have their own governance tokens.
Governance of Humans.ai by the HEART
The HEART plays a central role in the platform. Indeed, it allows to remunerate the application and AI developers, as well as the data providers. In order to make their remuneration more fluid, they will receive HEART even if user fees are paid by fiat currency or another cryptocurrency. In addition, in line with the platform’s values, it offers governance power to its holders to ensure honest use of AI.
It is also possible to stake your HEART tokens. As a reminder, staking is a common investment method in the cryptocurrency ecosystem, where the user locks in their digital assets in order to receive a reward periodically. As for HEART’s staking, it will give access to various functions:
- The issuance of NFTs;
- the creation of applications;
- the addition of artificial intelligence ;
- or the validation of its account.
A pre-sale of 78 million tokens will take place on the Polkastarter platform on Thursday, December 9 at 2pm for a unit price of $0.015. The maximum investment per person is set at $750.
At the time of publishing this article, the whitelist to participate in this presale is closed, but the HEART token will most likely be listed on other trading platforms in the near future.
This pre-sale worth more than $1 million will be added to the $9 million already raised by the project from about 60 investors specialized in new technologies and blockchain.
Governance of NFTs
As mentioned earlier, NFTs will have their own governance tokens. These will allow the owners of these tokens to ensure that their use is not dishonest.
In addition, the licenses of the applications sold to users will generate revenues that will be distributed among the different developers. These tokens are also used to distribute the profits among the different token holders of the NFTs at the origin of the application.
Humans.ai is a futuristic looking project that wishes to link artificial intelligence and human beings. The use of the blockchain is relevant because it allows transparency on the use of these creations.
The ever increasing development of AIs means that they are likely to be more and more present in our daily lives, which suggests that Humans.ai could have a role to play in their democratization and their ethical control.
