Blockchain technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are two of the most disruptive technologies in the world, with both having massive potential just on their own. Blockchain is powerful in that it can be used to log data and transactions in a secure, trustless, and decentralized manner – it also utilizes smart contracts that allow it to govern different interactions between two parties without the involvement of an intermediary.
On the other hand, AI offers decision-making capabilities in machines that are similar to human decision-making ones.
Blockchain technology and AI will inevitably converge, allowing AI-driven solutions to run on blockchains, with AI’s advanced machine learning capabilities enabling newer and better solutions.
AIWORK, Blockchain, and AI
AIWORK is an open-source, decentralized blockchain protocol built on a consensus network of AI computing resources backed by human experts. AI and human experts work in tandem to generate metadata for online video content, while developers can also create decentralized applications.
At AIWORK, we’re at the forefront of the convergence of these two amazing technologies.
Let’s take a brief look at our ecosystem and study its ongoing and potential use cases in real-life scenarios.
AIWORK’s ecosystem contains five main components that allow our protocol to function:
- Human Experts
- Computing Resource Providers
- Software Developers
AIWORK Potential Use Cases
There are several ways in which AIWORK and its solutions can be utilized in real-world situations to solve current prevalent problems within the industry:
Better Metadata for Content
The current level of metadata is relatively inconsistent, as it’s incomplete and subjective. For example, two videos of the same event or clip could be uploaded online – one video could have a very basic description consisting of a few f tags, while the other could have a very detailed description with the use of additional tags.
Neither description of the video is technically wrong, but the latter is clearly more detailed.
The biggest beneficiaries of standardized, consistent, and complete metadata are OTT platforms. Consistent tags and descriptions would allow their content to be easily discoverable. They could utilize AIWORK in several ways to enhance their metadata, receive accurate metadata tags for every item, and pay AIWORK for our computation resources and human work.
Scene Level Metadata
Currently, metadata is extracted at the file level, which means that the description used to describe and classify content showcases the entire clip or scene. All information at the scene level is not cataloged or tagged at all. Scene level tagging is also impossible to achieve using human experts because it’s impractical and too costly.
The extraction of scene-level data significantly improves suggestions and recommendation engines, as it would rely on the underlying metadata of scenes users previously watched. It will also make content more discoverable by tagging everything scene by scene.
Viewers could jump directly to particular scenes based on the content, while video editors would also be able to find footage and create videos instead of having to go through hours of video.
AI Verification and Correction
AI is prone to misidentifying faces and false positives because objects and human faces can often look similar. Human experts are relatively better when it comes to comparing and identifying faces and objects. A hybrid approach that combines human experts and AI can achieve optimal scale and accuracy.
AIWORK can provide AI match verification and correction by utilizing our community. Requesters can request verification and correction, after which they can pay our community for their verification and correction services.
AI Decentralized Distributed Computing Cloud
AI requires a significant amount of computing resources to recognize, process, match, and tag video content. A lack of resources is a growing pain point for AI, and it needs resources without jeopardizing efficiency, costs, and scalability.
A distributed and decentralized AI resource that utilizes crowd-sourced computing cycles could be a promising solution for handling high demand while also maintaining costs.
AIWORK can easily detect and flag video that has been deemed inappropriate by human experts and AI. The ContentGraph would label the score as rejected or give it a low safety score.
Scene-level metadata will define inappropriate scenes. Service providers can utilize AIWORK for safety filters that viewers can utilize to search for appropriate content while weeding out inappropriate content.
AIWORK can utilize ContentGraph to ensure brand safety when it comes to advertisers. The ContentGraph is determined by AIWORK’s decentralized AI network and is verified by human experts.
AIWORK is a decentralized and open-source blockchain that utilizes AI computing resources supported by human experts. AIWORK focuses on generating enhanced metadata for online video content and has several potential use cases. It has the potential to elevate translation and transcription services to create a massive shift towards digitization in the industry.
