Artificial Intelligence is one of the hottest topics on the planet right now. Tesla owner Elon Musk has recently made a number of statements about the dangers of artificial intelligence and on the importance that humanity proceeds with caution in a new and hazardous field.
Mind AI is one of the first companies to propose an early merger of artificial intelligence and blockchain so that the general public will have a say in the evolution of the sector. Much akin to the democratization of space exploration, artificial intelligence is simply too important to be left in the hands of governments or powerful corporations. Building a more equitable planet requires a mixture of public, private and government input. Decentralized technology can help with this, and is arguably the only way to deal with this.
What is Mind AI?
Artificial intelligence is a growing field, though if the warnings by Elon Musk are anything to go by, the sector will advance far more rapidly than any type of legislation can keep pace with. Mind AI believes that artificial intelligence will not render humans obsolete, as is commonly believed, but that it will enhance the human experience if handled responsibly.
History has demonstrated that technology has always created more jobs than it has rendered obsolete. It just gets rid of unnecessary functions so that people have more time to spend on more worthwhile endeavors. The biggest concern, as usual, is when nefarious actors get together and abuse the tools, such as using the internet for spying on citizens or utilizing public funds for secret and unauthorized military projects. According to Mind AI –
“Our biggest concern is that more people have a voice in determining how AGI gets used. Under capitalism, most technology gets developed to solve the problems of the people who can pay for it first. Eventually, life-altering technology may trickle down to the rest of the world. But the use cases are tailored primarily to the rich and elite.”
How will Mind AI work?
The details and complexities of artificial intelligence are in their infancy, and the field is evolving too rapidly for anything like proof of concepts or demonstrations. But Mind AI will crowdfund projects and make the code open to the public, which is the most important step to take. The Mind project is a community movement, and the sole purpose of the project is to help the globe develop, and not simply to make a profit. Everybody will have a say in the artificial intelligence as it develops.
“At Mind, we are working to ensure that the next evolutionary step for humanity will be shared by all, instead of falling into the hands of corporations and governments. We’ve developed a revolutionary ecosystem that allows contributors of intellectual property to be paid for their work, and for the public to co-own that work through a public blockchain. Our job as the founding team of the ecosystem is to spark the movement.”
While this is just a start, it marks an important change in the perception of how these types of projects are going to take place. With public opinion and authority invested right at the outset, a new globe could be created where the people are, at long last, fairly represented with the help of decentralized technology.
