Humans.ai has made it its mission to bring artificial intelligence into the decentralized economy era by employing blockchain technology to address some critical friction points that revolve around the ownership, governance, control, and monetization of AI. Based on Cosmos SDK, the Humans Blockchain lays the foundation for an ecosystem tailored to fit the needs of AI development and management in a decentralized environment.
The Humans Blockchain is gearing up to take the world of AI and blockchain by becoming the first blockchain infrastructure from the Cosmos ecosystem able to store, execute and manage artificial intelligence.
But changing the world doesn’t happen overnight. The team behind the Blockchain for AIs is working around the clock to deliver and fine-tune this cutting-edge infrastructure. The Humans Blockchain is evolving as an infrastructure that supports the AI economy and AI-driven world we are steadily heading. A big step in this direction is the new technical improvements that enhance security and add features, all while answering the pressing question of blockchain interoperability.
The Blockchain of AIs is the foundation on which the AIverse is being built. The AIverse is Humans.ai’s response to the ethical dilemma that artificial intelligence is currently facing, representing at the same time a pathway towards the creation of the AI decentralized economy. All of this is made possible by tapping into the technical innovation developed by Humans.ai which merges the world of Blockchain with the universe of AI.
“The Cosmos ecosystem is a good starting point for any blockchain as it provides all the necessary modules to get your network up and running. But we are a tech company at heart, so we want to make the Humans Blockchain more than just a ledger that records transactions. We want it to be an ecosystem that will house and execute the AI of the future. To bring our vision to reality, we included a series of custom modules that allow us to train and execute AI and an interface that puts AI into real humans’ hands”, stated Vali Malinoiu, Head of Blockchain & Infrastructure at Humans.ai.
The new update for the Humans Blockchain addresses multiple features and functionalities that are integral for the mainnet version:
· Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC)
· Interchain security update
· ARM support
· Implementing Architecture Decision Record (ADR)
The Humans Blockchain upgrade will also mark the implementation of a new set of blockchain standards:
· NFT AD
· NFT executor ADR
· Work book ADR
· Compute escrow ADR
IBC is an open-source protocol that enables different blockchain networks to talk with each other inside the Cosmos ecosystem and to transfer data and digital assets like tokens and NFTs. This way, Cosmos becomes a hub that links independent blockchains, enabling trustless communication and facilitating the exchange of value through dedicated channels using smart contracts to connect to the chains. IBC solves one of the main barriers to interoperability, the lack of cross-chain communication.
Integrating the Humans Blockchain with the IBC protocol will boost the utility and scope of the Humans ecosystem by unlocking liquidity that will flow into the AIverse, and help grow the AI sector. Through IBC, Humans.ai enables inter-blockchain collaboration, lower transaction costs and a simpler way of managing cross-chain assets.
One feature that makes blockchain technology highly sought after is its high levels of security and resistance to attack. But, the act of securing an ecosystem of sovereign blockchains becomes increasingly difficult as the number of blockchains grows. To sustainably grow a modular, multichain ecosystem, such as Cosmos, the ability to secure multiple execution environments with a single validator set is important. This concept is known as shared security.
Humans Blockchain is implementing Interchain Security, Cosmos’ answer to shared security. From a high-level overview, Interchain Security allows validators on a provider chain to use a stake on that chain to participate in the consensus of a consumer chain in parallel. A provider chain is a blockchain that allows its validators to secure another blockchain with its stake. Simply put, Interchain Security aims to help emerging blockchains in Cosmos keep up with the rigorous security standards of the ecosystem.
An ADR is a software design choice that addresses a functional or non-functional, architecturally significant requirement. Without going into too many technical details, ADR is a mechanism that streamlines how new design features and processes are proposed, documented and implemented inside a tech project. The idea is to make use of the input of the community on an issue, analyze the feedback and stir development in that direction if the proposed changes are considered beneficial.
Humans.ai will apply ADR to collect feedback from the community of validators concerning what changes help improve the Humans Blockchain to make it more stable, secure, and efficient.
ADR should include:
· Context on the relevant goals and the current state
· Proposed changes to achieve the goals
· A summary of the pros and cons of the proposed changes
