SingularityNET AI Platform 2024 Roadmap

Over the last few years, we have been pushing the boundaries of decentralized AI, developing a comprehensive suite of innovative tools and products designed to develop and utilize AI services in ways that prioritize decentralization, safety, scalability, and benefits to all — developing the SingularityNET decentralized AI Platform.

SingularityNET AI Platform 2024 Roadmap
<p style="margin-left:0px;">Over the last few years, we have been pushing the boundaries of decentralized AI, developing a comprehensive suite of innovative tools and products designed to develop and utilize AI services in ways that prioritize decentralization, safety, scalability, and benefits to all — developing the SingularityNET decentralized AI Platform.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The core goal of our Platform remains the same as it was in 2017 when we founded SingularityNET as the first truly decentralized AI network: <i><strong>To create a foundation suitable for running AGI systems with general intelligence at the human level and beyond in a secure, efficient, easily usable and fully decentralized way, without any central owners or controllers. </strong></i>Along the way, as our AI systems gradually move toward full AGI capabilities, the platform must also provide a high-quality decentralized infrastructure for AI applications serving diverse vertical markets.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">One thing this mandate means is that — unlike most of the more recent entrants in the decentralized AI space — the Platform cannot be specialized to any particular class of AI algorithms or data types, nor any particular vertical market application. If it is going to serve as the decentralized infrastructure for the global economy as the world enters the AGI phase, it must be far more generic and flexible than that.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">To meet these goals, the Platform does much more than aggregate multiple AI services on a single decentralized network, and functions as an end-to-end ecosystem of diverse, complex processes and interconnected components. These include the Marketplace and API, Publisher Portal, Developer Portal, SDKs, CLI, Daemon, and advanced smart contracts. Each component addresses several challenges, ranging from showcasing AI services and their respective capabilities to enabling integration into third-party applications.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The Platform will orchestrate services, payments and hosting in a decentralized way, integrating horizontal blockchain layers and vertical implementations. Following this vision, the Platform architecture currently foresees AI models to be hosted not only on a serverless infrastructure currently provided as an easy and risk-free service by the Platform, but also on fundamentally decentralized infrastructures, such as HyperCycle, NuNet and IPC (Internet Computer Protocol). All this will be bound together by ‘AI Deployment Infrastructure-as-a-Service,’ making the deployment and hosting process both easy and extremely flexible and powerful. The particulars of each solution component will be explained further below.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">These core functionalities serve as the foundation, supplemented by ongoing research and development initiatives exploring the implementation of next-generation tools and third-party integrations.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The purpose of this report is to detail the achievements of the past year and outline our Platform development roadmap for 2024, with an emphasis on four key items:</p><ul><li><strong>The Internet of Knowledge </strong>— a unique approach to extending the applicability of decentralized AI in the immediate term, and paving the way for the emergence of decentralized AGI;</li><li><strong>Integrations</strong> between the SingularityNET Platform and other decentralized networks: HyperCycle, NuNet, Cardano, Dfinity (ICP), and others, all part of the process of moving toward a next-generation cross-chain decentralized AI ecosystem;</li><li><strong>Scalability and Usability</strong> improvements, including large new features in basic areas like hosting and billing;</li><li><strong>Adoption</strong> through targeted initiatives like Deep Funding, SingularityNET ecosystem spinoffs, and more.</li></ul><p style="margin-left:auto;"><img class="image_resized" style="width:680px;" src="https://miro.medium.com/v2/resize:fit:1400/0*OCNToONAbMzMCSBz" alt="" loading="lazy"></p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Throughout 2023, the Platform underwent architectural changes and other strategic enhancements aimed at refining and solidifying its development trajectory and aligning it with our <a

Strategy and Roadmap for 2024</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:auto;"><img class="image_resized" style="width:680px;" src="https://miro.medium.com/v2/resize:fit:1400/0*NQJtRUd1QPxInyv-" alt="" loading="lazy"></p><p style="margin-left:24px;"><i>All released information represents SingularityNET’s current intent, is subject to change or withdrawal, and represents only goals and objectives.</i></p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>The Internet of Knowledge — A Distributed and Decentralized Metaframework</strong></h1><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Deployment of Knowledge Nodes and Model Nodes on The Platform</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">The concept of the Internet of Knowledge involves the separation of ML models and knowledge containers through their implementation in the form of decentralized nodes in order to introduce a synergetic network that makes knowledge interoperable by the ecosystem of ML models for creating efficient AI metaservices. In such a network, Knowledge Nodes can be domain-, task- and identity-dedicated, being dynamically updated and cross-utilized by ML models represented as Model Nodes. It opens a wide range of possibilities for different academic research, software development, data operation, business-dedicated, socially-motivated, idea-driven, and just creative teams without specific AI development skills to efficiently contribute to the evolution of beneficial AI.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The Internet of Knowledge can contain static nodes aggregating the golden standard knowledge and best practices or, on the other side of the spectrum, contain highly dynamic domain or subdomain representation with real-time updates. Knowledge nodes can support different modalities and multimodal knowledge, contain both declarative and procedural knowledge, be focused on implementation details and real-world scenarios, have different designs, implement various databases, and be supplemented by various retrieval subsystems for better task-driven optimization. Each node has its own technical specification for its operation, submitting a specifically formulated task or entity identifier to the control stack.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">It should be emphasized that knowledge representation is most effective in the form of a graph when a system of connections is specified between data units. The described set of tools simplifies the creation of knowledge nodes, providing the user with a set of tools for formatting and organizing data in the form of a graph structure, as well as a set of universal extensible interfaces, both for interaction with AI agents, as well as with external systems. The use case is as follows: the user, using a toolkit in a declarative style, describes the desired parameters of the node, and describes the “contract” for the data structure, after which the automatic deployment process is launched, as a result of which the user has their own knowledge node, completely ready to work in the decentralized Internet of Knowledge.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">A Knowledge Graph is a <a href="https://www.techtarget.com/searchcontentmanagement/definition/semantic-network-knowledge-graph"><u>semantic network</u></a> that visualizes entities and the relationships between them. The information represented by the Knowledge Graph is stored in a <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graph_database"><u>graph database</u></a>. An entity is a real object such as an event or a person. In a Knowledge Graph, these real objects are represented as nodes. Each node/entity is related to other nodes/entities. The relationships are represented by edges — connections between the nodes. Edges can, for example, have the meaning “is part of,”,= “works at” or “has properties”. By connecting the nodes via the edges, i.e. the relationships between the individual objects, a knowledge network is created.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The graph database stores Knowledge Graph’s nodes and edges as well as the associated metadata. The nodes and edges of a particular graph can be described by universal methods of graph representation, which allow, on the one hand, to describe complex and structured data, and, on the other hand, to maintain a flexible and extensible model for representing information. An important aspect of creating a Knowledge Graph is the semantic enrichment of the data. This means that the data is enriched with additional information that more precisely describes the meaning and relationships between the nodes and edges.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The Knowledge Nodes in collaboration with Model Nodes create a powerful framework, capable of acting in different modalities in order to facilitate cognitive synergy. In turn, Model Nodes which can be represented by symbolic and neural-symbolic algorithms and deep learning neural models such as GAN, Stable diffusion, and Transformer, can benefit from knowledge access in the process of their evolution, not being constrained to use relevant knowledge in inference time but also to reuse it for retraining setups, which represents the ability to federated and continual learning for the system as a whole.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">We also apply Integration Nodes wrapping popular frameworks for building and deploying dialogue agents such as LangChain, AutoGPT, AutoChain, and others in order to aggregate and synergize the best practices evolved in various developer communities and simplify integration to the Internet of Knowledge into the SingularityNET Platform.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Ultimately, these factors position SingularityNET to become the Knowledge Layer of the Internet in the AI era. Knowledge Nodes and Model Nodes deployed on the blockchain allow, through the use of smart contracts, to interact with AI agents, thereby achieving all the main advantages of functioning in a decentralized network and accelerating the evolution of beneficial AI.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Decentralized AI Deployment Infrastructure-as-a-Service</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">AI developers can focus on what they do best and AI customers can be confident that the services they want will have high uptime, robustness, and performance and will be deployed and managed in secure, scalable environments. This is the promise of our AI-infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) we plan to offer for a fee or share of revenues, similar to how app stores have simplified the mobile app economy for users and developers. Our IaaS tools will play the role of similar tools by platforms such as AWS and Azure, but with the following design goals tailored to the needs of networked AI:</p><ul><li>Optimize for the computational requirements of training and deploying machine learning models. This goes beyond deep neural networks and GPU usage and considers graph processing, multi-agent systems, dynamic distributed knowledge stores, and other processing models needed to allow the emergence of networked AGI.</li><li>Support processing of stateful services, which currently represents a challenge in cloud platforms but is necessary for many tasks, such as those of conversational agents, task-oriented augmented reality, personal assistants, and others.</li><li>Provide different runtimes and environments for deploying the model, at the checkpoint and code level, at the container and VM level.</li><li>Autoscale the load of services in serverless, an event-driven architecture that allows users to scale models depending on the load;</li><li>Include secure support for public, private, and hybrid cloud deployments (public–private mix and edge–cloud mix).</li><li>Dynamically optimize compute locations to maximize compute and data proximity, improving performance and reducing bandwidth costs. We will leverage critical open-source technologies such as Kubernetes and CloudStack and support the deployment of our IaaS solution both on top of existing cloud platforms (where we make optimal use of built-in tooling) and bare metal data centers. One key consideration is using cryptocurrency mining hardware to train AI models and long-running AI reasoning and inference tasks.</li></ul><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>AI-DSL and Unified API for The Internet of Knowledge</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">AI-DSL is a powerful tool that offers a convenient and universal standard for describing the interfaces and interactions of AI services. From the developer’s point of view, they will not be exposed to the Protocol Buffers (Protobuf) anymore by default. Instead, the developers will enter their service descriptions directly in AI-DSL. Next, the Platform SDK modules will automatically generate the Protobuf file required for the technical components of the Platform. It should also be noted that the development strategy also plans to add support for not only gRPC services but also REST API, which is determined by the planned support for translating AI-SDL into REST API. This will significantly expand the capabilities of the Platform for AI developers and ensure a high-quality level of compatibility.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Developing tailored AI algorithms that can solve real-world problems has been tedious, expensive, and time-consuming. The implementation of AI-DSL as a part of the Platform SDK is paving the way for users to access all the AI services they need in a single place. These self-assembling workflows will replace the current labor-intensive process for creating specialized, one-off AI processes. This protocol will create a universal mode of AI intercommunication and collaboration, making the benefits of complex AI processes accessible at scale.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The next stage in the implementation of the Internet of Knowledge is the development of a universal API for services related to both knowledge graphs and LLMs representing Knowledge Nodes and Model Nodes respectively. This standard is aimed at ensuring the interaction of the Platform with the Internet of Knowledge ecosystem through the different Platform components like <a href="https://github.com/trueagi-io/hyperon-experimental/"><u>MeTTa</u></a> (a purpose-built language for cognitive computations) SDK, Python SDK, Javascript SDK, <a href="https://github.com/zarqa-ai/metta-motto"><u>MeTTa-Motto</u></a> modular library (a package that provides interoperability of LLMs and a variety of AI/ML Models with Knowledge Graphs, Databases, reasoning algorithms, etc.).</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Knowledge Node Assembling Deployment Toolkit</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">The Knowledge Node Assembling Deployment Toolkit is an advanced tool designed for creating and deploying generic modules called Knowledge Nodes that provide universal approaches to knowledge representation. These modules are capable of interacting with ML models and the MeTTa SDK, i.e. with AI agents in the Internet of Knowledge layer. They are designed to store and provide knowledge and contextual data to improve the quality of AI services.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">When configuring a knowledge node, the user describes a data contract, according to which they will fill the node with “knowledge data”. A data contract is a declarative configuration specifying the format, structure, and metadata of knowledge data. It serves as a blueprint for the system, guiding the interpretation and integration of diverse data sources into a cohesive graph. This contract defines the semantics, relationships, and properties of entities, allowing the system to harmonize disparate data elements into a unified knowledge representation.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">By adhering to the data contract, the system can ensure consistency and interoperability, facilitating the seamless construction and enrichment of the Knowledge Graph from heterogeneous data sources. Knowledge and contexts are subsequently retrieved from the knowledge node through searching and navigating a graph, which involves querying for specific information or exploring relationships within the graph. Navigation includes traversing the graph by following edges to discover related entities and uncovering contextual information. Data enrichment and the use of various types of metadata enhance the precision of searches, enabling the knowledge node engine to explore complex interconnections and derive insights from the rich, interconnected data structure.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Conceptually, the core of a knowledge node is based on a graph database with the ability to expand with additional data storage as needed. The toolkit allows users to connect universal interfaces to interact with the node. This is a control interface, an interface for interacting with AI agents, and an interface for connecting external systems, e.g., for updating the Knowledge Graph from the outside. The user can implement their own data collection and processing system, or use their own data warehouse and connect it to a knowledge node to dynamically update the Knowledge Graph using both a webhook mechanism or a REST API.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The SingularityNET team is currently working on a comprehensive example of such a Knowledge Node service to streamline further development. The service will include a dynamically updated graph database and provide access to an extensive data set of scientific and technical texts in AI and machine learning domain, as well as related technical domains. To implement the prototype, a database of technical articles with a total initial volume of about a million paragraphs, dynamically updated from several sources, will be used. Scientific and technical texts and their metadata will be transposed into a graph structure, which will allow them to be linked with each other by a system of connections based on a variety of metadata, and, ultimately, provide highly relevant contexts for queries in the field covered. Such a service will serve as a reliable support for AI services and will serve as a good example confirming the usefulness of a Knowledge Node as an element of the Internet of Knowledge.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Neural-symbolic MeTTa-based Framework for AI Orchestration and LLM Tooling For Zarqa</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">Disruptive neural-symbolic architectures developed by <a href="https://zarqa.ai/"><u>Zarqa</u></a>, a novel venture from SingularityNET, have been mobilizing our engineering expertise in solutions based on scaled neural-symbolic AI. Zarqa is aimed to create a pioneering and a far more powerful next generation of LLMs, capable of disrupting any industry by merging symbolic reasoning and dynamic Knowledge Graphs with the power of large-scale generative AI based on deep neural networks, resulting in unparalleled conversational and problem-solving capacity.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Neural-symbolic MeTTa-based Framework for AI Orchestration is aimed at achieving efficient hybridization via integrating LLMs into a neural-symbolic cognitive architecture. This architecture includes a metagraph-based knowledge storage, a cognitive programming language, developed by SingularityNET, called MeTTa, programs that are the content of the storage and can represent declarative and procedural knowledge, queries to this knowledge including programs themselves (implying full introspection), reasoning and learning rules and heuristics, as well as can perform subsymbolic operations, in particular, by processing information with the use of neural network modules.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The core framework allows for implementation in MeTTa of different inference and reasoning paradigms, such as Probabilistic Logic Networks (PLN) being implemented. The MeTTa language design enables high granular interoperability of reasoning steps and neural information processing operations, which provides features such as storing information into the knowledge base that is produced by generative neural networks in response to user’s queries (one-shot external memory for LLMs), verification of LLMs output via querying symbolic ontologies (hallucination mitigation), LLM conditioning on the Knowledge Graph content, and chaining of LLM inference steps controlled by or altered with symbolic knowledge-based reasoning.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">AI services orchestrations and calls are one of the most relevant areas of development, especially in the context of the Platform. Taking into account the multitude of AI services, as well as the organization of the <a href="https://docs.google.com/document/d/1x7a9RbaiDYtfKcZGrprA5z7ZVZgpNeSgVKBcjXZ5WU0/edit#heading=h.25ad3wuj5qqb"><u>Internet of Knowledge</u></a>, it should be noted that individual requests to a specific service become redundant and unproductive.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The idea of this direction is to create a system for converting requests in a formal language using LLMs, as well as defining several individual requests to AI services in its context. Thus, the Neural-Symbolic MeTTa-based Framework for AI Orchestration allows for optimized and aggregated calls to a number of AI services, as well as Internet of Knowledge nodes, to process one formal request, which is in fact multi-component.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>SingularityNET Platform Assistant</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">The rising number of services on the SingularityNET <a href="https://dev.singularitynet.io/products/marketplace/"><u>marketplace</u></a> highlighted the need for an automated solution to ensure user comfort and efficient navigation. As a response, we are currently developing an intelligent SingularityNET Platform Assistant, initially envisioned as a chatbot for service-related inquiries. However, further exploration revealed the potential for more comprehensive and innovative functionalities.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The development will prioritize a phased approach, initially introducing a chatbot to answer service-specific and Platform-wide questions. It will leverage existing documentation and development processes to assist users seamlessly. The long-term vision encompasses additional functionalities, such as:</p><ul><li>Onboarding support: Guiding new users through the Platform’s features and operations;</li><li>Automated code generation: Streamlining specific tasks by automatically generating code for AI models wrapping, data processing, etc.;</li><li>Integrated service calls: Enabling users to interact with Platform services directly within the chatbot interface.</li></ul><p style="margin-left:0px;">The Assistant’s technical foundation harnesses the Internet of Knowledge SingularutyNET Platform ecosystem and cutting-edge technologies like <a href="https://github.com/zarqa-ai/metta-motto"><u>MeTTa-MoTTo</u></a>, which provides interoperability of LLMs with Knowledge Graphs and reasoning. This innovative approach ensures a robust and adaptable foundation for ongoing and future development.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Decentralized Collaborations on the Platform Architecture and Vertical Tech Stack</strong></h1><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>ICP Integration and Decentralized AI Marketplace Deployment</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">We are <a href="https://decrypt.co/206640/singularitynet-joins-with-dfinity-foundation-for-ai-models-that-runs-on-smart-contracts"><u>collaborating closely</u></a> with Dfinity to leverage the strengths and capabilities of the SingularityNET Platform and the Internet Computer Protocol (ICP) to advance Decentralized AI infrastructure and bring AI-based services to all dApps building on the ICP. This initiative aligns with our shared mission of democratizing AI technology by enhancing Platform functionality and user experience. It also complements our partnerships with other entities such as Input Output Global (IOHK) from the Cardano ecosystem, and our work with HyperCycle to create our own unique Layer 0++ blockchain framework, this Dfinity collaboration exemplifies our commitment to a cross-chain approach to decentralized AI.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">A central aspect of the collaboration with Dfinity is the joint development of a decentralized AI Marketplace hosted on the ICP network. <a href="https://dev.singularitynet.io/products/marketplace/"><u>The SingularityNET marketplace</u></a> serves as a hub for accessing and interacting with AI services on the Platform. It offers extensive functionalities such as test requests for services, purchase of services, and exploring and understanding service capabilities. By decentralizing this crucial component, we move closer to achieving complete decentralization and fostering an even broader distribution of AI services and development activities.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">To achieve this, we will introduce a universal template for building user-friendly AI service interfaces that can be used by both service providers and users to create UI interfaces with a broad range of functionalities, including web3 authorization, wallet connectors, and, as a result, payment services. This solution aims to significantly reduce the complexity of interface development and streamline the distribution and integration of AI services.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">As part of this collaboration, we are considering the creation of pre-built templates for frequently used AI services. These templates would offer standardized UI elements and features specifically designed for specific service categories.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Building upon our commitment to expanding options and platforms for hosting AI services, we are actively exploring the potential of ICP to host AI services. This feasibility study aligns with our vision for modern AI development, emphasizing scalability, dynamic resource redistribution, and greater accessibility.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Concurrently, we are testing the possibility of hosting AI models and Platform services in <a href="https://internetcomputer.org/docs/current/concepts/canisters-code"><u>ICP canisters</u></a>. Our research aims to answer key questions such as types of AI models suitable for ICP hosting, performance considerations, and model size limitations.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>HyperCycle: Steps Toward a Fully AI-Customized Decentralized Software Stack</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;"><a href="https://www.hypercycle.ai/"><u>HyperCycle</u></a> is building the essential missing components required for the Internet of AI, where AI agents with complementary capabilities can seamlessly transact, enabling them to collectively tackle problems of ever-increasing size and complexity, empowered by agent-to-agent microtransactions for microservices with sub-second finality.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The TODA protocols provide the essentials. The ledgerless TODA/IP consensus protocol minimizes network traversal and performs only the minimum computation necessary to secure the network itself. Building on TODA/FP, Earth64 Sato-Servers ensure that their assets are secured independently of any blockchain ledger.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Beyond the core functionality, HyperCycle offers vast possibilities. SingularityNET envisions an AI marketplace where humans and machines can transact, advancing machine intelligence and paving the way for true AGI. Additionally, marketplaces for high-performance computing can leverage HyperCycle as a service, supporting advancements in various fields such as science, medicine, and technology.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The synergistic combination of AI services, distributed registry, solution architecture, node software client, and the ability to run a node on several computing devices open up significant opportunities. Building upon this foundation, we are exploring the integration of HyperCycle with our Platform, focusing on several promising avenues.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The first avenue would be hosting models on HyperCycle. Establishing a single, streamlined framework for service registration, hosting, and calling will enable service providers to efficiently manage their AI models within a decentralized environment, potentially leading to increased user activity, improved service development, and optimized resource utilization.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">While decentralized AI model hosting on HyperCycle empowers efficient management and utilization of AI services, the true game-changer lies in its embedded blockchain technology. The blockchain serves as a trustless bridge, facilitating secure and transparent financial transactions with token conversion. This eliminates concerns about centralized control and ensures fair value exchange, creating a modern billing system based on trust and transparency.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Beyond billing, integrating HyperCycle with key blockchain components at the Platform level holds immense potential. This can lead to lower commission fees, faster data processing and exchange, and maximized performance and security. Moving the core logic of smart contracts to HyperCycle promises unprecedented speed and security for user interactions.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Currently, our team is meticulously researching the optimal architecture and interaction model to achieve the perfect balance between speed, security, and user experience. This research paves the way for an even more advanced future: the potential to create smart contracts within the HyperCycle network on <a href="https://github.com/trueagi-io/hyperon-experimental/"><u>MeTTa</u></a> (Meta Type Talk). This revolutionary concept is poised to bridge the gap between AI and blockchain development, opening doors to a new era of AI-powered smart contracts.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>NuNet AI Model Hosting for the SingularityNET Platform</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;"><a href="https://www.nunet.io/"><u>NuNet</u></a> is building a globally decentralized computing framework that combines the latent computing power of independently owned compute devices across the globe into a dynamic marketplace of compute resources. This approach transcends limitations like physical location or device size, empowering users to discover and utilize the precise amount of computing power they need whenever they need it.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">NuNet prioritizes environmental friendliness, a pivotal aspect in the ever-growing demands of AI and decentralized systems. These domains heavily rely on power consumption for developing, training, and hosting AI services. NuNet addresses this challenge by harnessing underutilized computing resources, effectively eliminating the need for additional energy expenditure. Imagine the impact of leveraging idle computing power across the globe instead of constantly building and powering new infrastructure.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">One of our most important areas of collaboration with NuNet is synergizing the SingularityNET Platform with the decentralized NuNet ecosystem. This hinges on seamlessly hosting AI services within NuNet, unlocking numerous benefits for platforms and users.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">By establishing this robust interaction, we aim to simplify and streamline crucial processes around AI service hosting significantly. Specifically, service providers will be able to host their offerings on NuNet effortlessly. This approach will allow us to dynamically adjust the number of required reuses at times of increased load on the AI service, regulate the speed of model training, and personalize many parameters.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">As a result, we will streamline the entire onboarding process, eliminating the need for users to delve into allocated resources and their underlying context. Service providers will be able to seamlessly launch, train, register, and publish their models on the marketplace. Additionally, the internal billing system will cover all actions, simplifying the process from multiple payments (including separate ones for hosting) to just a few clicks. This is particularly beneficial for scenarios where clients train their models on their own datasets, as external actions and associated time/resource consumption are significantly reduced.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Custom AI Developments for the Enterprises</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">AI chatbots and goal-oriented dialogue systems have emerged as critical tools for enhancing customer engagement, streamlining support, and driving communication efficiency. SingularityNET offers a comprehensive framework for developing tailored AI solutions for enterprises, leveraging advanced machine learning and robust backend development.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">To help organizations create AI-enabled business strategies, we begin by gaining a thorough understanding of their business model, customer service processes, and specific requirements to provide them with efficient goal-oriented dialogue systems and full-fledged cognitive architectures acting not only in text but also in speech, visual, time-series and action chaining domains with high performance at scale.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The effectiveness of an AI chatbot hinges on the quality and relevance of its training data and disruptive technical solutions for dynamic knowledge grounding in order to solve downstream tasks and keep contextual relevance through the whole dialogue chain. Historical customer interactions, FAQs, and domain-specific content serve as vital resources for training the generative models and supplying AI in inference time. Dynamically updated structured Knowledge Graphs and databases act as the backbone of the chatbot’s knowledge supply mechanism, enabling accurate and contextually relevant answers and leveraging the <a href="https://docs.google.com/document/d/1x7a9RbaiDYtfKcZGrprA5z7ZVZgpNeSgVKBcjXZ5WU0/edit#heading=h.25ad3wuj5qqb"><u>Internet of Knowledge</u></a> ecosystem on the SingularityNET Platform.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Building upon the foundation of dialogue systems, SingularityNET offers solutions for call centers, leveraging speech models. These solutions present additional challenges compared to chatbots, including managing voice characteristics, tone, emotionality, pronunciation, literacy, pauses, speed of answers, and even accents. Additionally, speech recognition modules require integration for accurate request processing. By ensuring fast response times, high answer relevance, and maintaining a user-defined conversation structure, combined with anticipating user needs expressed implicitly, we strive to create a seamless user experience akin to interacting with a competent, helpful human specialist.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Our experience in developing end-to-end AI solutions for humanoid robotics for <a href="https://www.hansonrobotics.com/"><u>Hanson Robotics</u></a> (Sophia robot), <a href="https://awakening.health/"><u>Awakening Health</u></a> (Grace robot), and <a href="https://www.yayalabs.io/"><u>Yaya Labs</u></a> (Desdemona star-robot) each with unique characteristics and abilities and capable of dialog with humans, represent consistent artificial personality, leverage domain-specific knowledge, demonstrate the power of AI to deal with real-world complexity, utilize multimodal perception and introduce advanced compositional behavior control.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Accelerating Progress on Cardano Integration</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">In November 2023, SingularityNET successfully <a href="https://blog.singularitynet.io/agix-staking-on-cardano-opens-first-epoch-is-beginning-bd9762d3fe81"><u>launched AGIX staking on the Cardano blockchain</u></a>, marking a significant step forward in the migration process of our decentralized AI Platform. This feat required extensive technical expertise, including in-depth analysis, high-quality architecture design, and careful consideration of Cardano’s specific features and the logic of constructing smart contracts in <a href="https://github.com/Plutonomicon/plutarch-plutus"><u>Plutarch</u></a>, a typed eDSL in Haskell for writing efficient scripts.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The development of AGIX staking has allowed us to significantly increase competencies in the development of decentralized solutions specialized for the Cardano blockchain. Considering that staking is a financial solution, this has also prompted us to think through the concept of transferring the Platform to the Cardano blockchain.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">It should be acknowledged that this process will likely be implemented in stages due to the inherent complexities associated with supporting multiple blockchain networks within the Platform. The key processes that involve interaction with the blockchain network and hold the most significance are:</p><ul><li>Registration of new service providers and their services;</li><li>Creation and management of payment channels.</li></ul><p style="margin-left:0px;">As the initial step toward enhancing user experience on the Platform, we identified the transfer of the payment logic used for service utilization. To achieve this, the team conducted a thorough analysis of existing financial projects on Cardano, searching for projects that could offer similar functionalities and potential integration options into the Platform. However, due to the complexity or lack of necessary functionalities within existing solutions, the Platform team has developed an alternative version of the smart contract architecture and structure specifically tailored to implement the required functionalities for Cardano.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Beyond the development of smart contracts (both on-chain and off-chain components), it will be necessary to develop logic for supporting the Cardano network at the Daemon level, which serves as a key technical component for Platform and SDK navigation. Additionally, integration support for Cardano and a selection of new options needs to be implemented within the Marketplace front end.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The second stage focuses on the transfer of registration logic for new organizations and services. This stage will not only involve smart contract development and environmental modifications but will also require updates to the Daemon and SDK. This stage presents a greater level of complexity, as it necessitates avoiding data storage collisions, ensuring high-quality and high-speed support for interaction with data from various blockchain networks, and guaranteeing uniformity of stored data across all networks.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Further actions will be determined based on a detailed design for the complete migration of the SingularityNET protocol Marketplace to the Cardano blockchain. We anticipate progress on this endeavor throughout 2024, aiming to leverage the robust decentralization, security, and strength of the Cardano network for the entire universe of SingularityNET AI agents.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Scalability and Usability Improvements, Smoothing the Path to a Decentralized AI Future</strong></h1><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Improving the Onboarding Experience</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">Using an innovative high-tech product like the SingularityNET decentralized AI Platform delves into numerous intricate areas, demanding users to grasp various structures, principles, and mechanisms — whether already implemented, currently in development, or planned for the near future. We acknowledge the learning curve inherent to such solutions.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">However, simplifying the process of understanding the Platform is a core priority. We have been actively working to make publishing, using, and integrating services on our Platform a streamlined experience. This comprehensive process involves multiple components and steps, and we are proud to say we have successfully implemented key improvements throughout 2023.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Specifically, we introduced a series of pre-configured boilerplates and templates to support developers further. These ready-to-use resources help streamline the integration process of AI services into several applications and systems, saving developers valuable time and effort.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Development of Text User Interface (TUI)</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">We made significant progress in developing a Text User Interface (TUI) written in PyTermTK to provide a more user-friendly developer experience on the Platform. This innovative interface is designed to streamline the onboarding process for AI developers, particularly those with limited system administration experience. By providing a more accessible and user-friendly entry point, the TUI aims to democratize access to the Platform’s powerful capabilities.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Improved Technical Documentation</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">We understand the critical role of clear and comprehensive <a href="https://dev.singularitynet.io/docs/overview/"><u>technical documentation</u></a> in user experience. This is why we have been actively revamping the Platform package, including codebase, documentation, and guidelines for both the Publisher Portal and Developer Portal.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Our collaborative approach involves working hand-in-hand with AI Developers during onboarding to pinpoint and address pain points directly. These improvements will enhance the clarity and user-friendliness of the documentation and serve as a dynamic knowledge base for the <a href="https://docs.google.com/document/d/1qcrGyTg364-H3x0kuqCi7GVKGIWbY34M9aqIcbesUdY/edit#heading=h.bsqgi6x00kt9"><u>SingularityNET Platform Assistant</u></a>, which is currently in development.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Streamlining the Onboarding Process and Publisher Experience</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">We are committed to providing service providers and onboarders with a seamless and efficient Platform experience. Here are some key improvements we have made to the Publisher Portal:</p><ul><li>Test Network: Enhanced interaction with the test network to ensure crucial functionalities for service testing during the upload process to the Platform. This involved replacing the testnet and debugging interactions with the daemon.</li><li>Improved front-end: Actively addressed bugs and tested front-end functionalities to eliminate instances of incorrect portal behavior.</li><li>User Experience Focus: Removed specific friction points identified through user interactions, ensuring a smoother experience.</li><li>Comprehensive Documentation: Revising documentation and guidelines based on support experience and developer feedback, aiming for increased clarity and comprehensiveness.</li></ul><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Facilitated Service Development and Deployment Automation</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">We started implementing service wrapping automation and event-driven solutions for easy AI model deployment on the SingularityNET decentralized AI Platform. This means we can significantly simplify the service wrapping process, reduce costs, and scale AI models more efficiently.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Previously, service providers had to maintain their own or third-party cloud servers to run AI services. With the use of event-driven service architecture, instances will only be used when accessed by users. This eliminates the risk of incurring costs without actual usage of the AI service. We can now scale GPU models from zero to the limits set by the provider and back again.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Onboarders can diversify their model hosting and communication practices to host AI models with serverless GPU vendors and leverage modern practices for operator-based models in Kubernetes and other AI cluster management tools.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The solution has been implemented to 15 various AI services on the Platform for testing, and a detailed guideline for reimplementing this approach is being prepared for release.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Improving Key Components: CLI, SDK, Daemon</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">The seamless onboarding and user experience of our decentralized AI Platform hinges on three key technical components: <a href="https://dev.singularitynet.io/docs/ai-developers/daemon/"><u>Daemon</u></a>, <a href="https://dev.singularitynet.io/docs/ai-consumers/snet-cli/"><u>CLI</u></a>, and SDK. Each plays an essential role for:</p><ol><li>service providers deploying and managing their AI services;</li><li>integration clients seamlessly embedding these services into their developments, and;</li><li>end users who use services for personal purposes without integration requirements.</li></ol><p style="margin-left:0px;">In particular, the first stage of work included dividing the code base into separate repositories (for CLI and SDK), as well as refactoring some of the components within the SDK to logically and physically separate components that are used in different application contexts and make it more flexible. We then moved the SingularityNET smart contracts layer to separate Python packages to support up-to-date versions of all contracts. This has resulted in a more advanced architecture design that allows for ease of development of wrapping service calls and developing wrappers over service calls.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">As for the Daemon side, we are actively working on some Infura interaction improvements and polishing of user experience in the context of providing training as a service. Also, the nearest plan includes Daemon setup and deployment mechanisms simplification and automation, decreasing the number of required configurable parameters for setup by passing the defaults (still can be configured with custom values but not required for most common setup cases).</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Our dedicated development team ensures uninterrupted operation, consistent updates, modern architecture, and ongoing support. This meticulous approach guarantees uptime, security, performance, and the addition of new functionalities. The result is a simplified onboarding, an intuitive user experience, increased confidence in Platform reliability, unlocked innovation for service providers and clients, and broader accessibility for diverse users worldwide.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Progressed with Daemon, CLI, and SDK Transformation</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">We have started development to automate the deployment of Daemon modules (a core component of the interaction between an AI developer’s <a href="https://dev.singularitynet.io/docs/ai-developers/service/"><u>service</u></a> and the Platform) and simplify the interaction with the <a href="https://dev.singularitynet.io/docs/ai-consumers/snet-cli/"><u>SingularityNET CLI</u></a>.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">We are moving toward a global onboarding methodology and multi-platform tools and simplifying the interaction with these tools. We are also working on separating the CLI from the Python SDK while concurrently updating the JavaScript SDK.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">To make the work of service providers more convenient, a new way of interaction between the <a href="https://dev.singularitynet.io/docs/ai-developers/daemon/"><u>Daemon</u></a> and the service using HTTP requests has been implemented in the Daemon. Previously, connection to the Daemon was limited to <a href="https://dev.singularitynet.io/docs/ai-developers/grpc/"><u>gRPC</u></a>, json-rpc, and process (threaded interaction with the running provider service). However, service providers now have options for GenerativeAI Nodes deploying their services on hosting based on serverless GPU computing. This functionality is currently being tested and debugged.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Also, new functionality was implemented for service providers to train models. When it comes to interacting with the daemon, this allows service providers to activate an additional model training service based on the provided data dataset. The functionality is being tested and improved to meet technical requirements.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Developing Zero-code AI Model Training</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">To make our new Internet of Knowledge functionalities as broadly as accessible as possible, we have implemented new features for service providers to train and deploy custom AI models on our decentralized AI Platform, including zero-code training. Service providers can seamlessly activate an additional model training service based on the provided data set as part of their interaction with the Platform.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">To provide such innovative functionality, we leverage advanced architectures and optimization techniques. This ensures optimal utilization of resources, enabling rapid model training and deployment and ensuring scaling in inference.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">This is why we will be introducing the concept of Training-On-Platform (TOP). As a pilot, we have equipped three highly sought-after domain-focused implementations with this new capability: :</p><ul><li>Speech synthesis service with training support based on the provided unique voice sample;</li><li>Image generation service with training support based on the provided image collection;</li><li>Textual generative conversational AI service based on LLM fine-tuning using custom data.</li></ul><p style="margin-left:0px;">This showcases the TOP feature and its advanced functionalities through top-tier, pre-trained AI services available in our <a href="https://dev.singularitynet.io/products/marketplace/"><u>Marketplace</u></a>, and makes TOP accessible to diverse audiences, including developers with deep technical expertise and AI designers and customizers with less technical experience.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">This approach not only expands the potential user base but also makes AI development more engaging and accessible, opening doors for both technical and non-technical users.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>SingularityNET Token Bridge</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">The SingularityNET Token Bridge constitutes an important supporting technology service. and an important focus area for our tech teams.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Facilitating the seamless and secure transfer of data and tokens between different blockchain networks underpins the very idea of a “decentralized” AI marketplace, promotes interoperability, and opens up new opportunities for users to access a broader range of network-specific features and capabilities.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">As the crypto space continues to evolve, this bridging mechanism will contribute to the growth of our ecosystem projects and third-party partners, allowing them to build scalable cross-chain applications while upholding the spirit of decentralization.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">In this line, our tech teams have undertaken a series of initiatives in 2023, notably:</p><ul><li>The development and optimization of the interaction processes with select blockchain networks.</li><li>Support for a number of SingularityNET ecosystem tokens.</li><li>Implementation of non-ecosystem tokens.</li></ul><p style="margin-left:0px;">The choice of which blockchains to support is a strategic decision and one that requires careful consideration of their differences and distinct benefits and more specific parameters such as data processing speed, the volume of data processed, project focus, user comfort, simplicity, convenience, and security and technological solutions underlying each blockchain network</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">At the time of this writing, the SingularityNET Bridge supports our native token AGIX, NuNet’s utility token NTX, Rejuve.AI’s utility token RJV, and Cogito’s governance token CGV. Specifically, it bridges the gap respectively between the Ethereum and Cardano networks and the Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain networks:</p><ul><li>Tokens supported on the <a href="https://bridge.singularitynet.io/"><u>ETH-Cardano Bridge</u></a>: AGIX, NTX, RJV, and CGV.</li><li>Tokens supported on the <a href="https://bsc-bridge.singularitynet.io/"><u>ETH-BSC Bridge</u></a>: CGV and RJV.</li></ul><p style="margin-left:0px;">Currently, separate front-end interfaces exist for Ethereum-Cardano and Ethereum-Binance Smart Chain conversions. An upcoming update will introduce a unified interface, replacing the two separate portals with a single, intuitive platform. This consolidation aims to significantly streamline the user experience and make cross-chain interactions a breeze, regardless of technical expertise. Expect easier navigation, clearer information, and an overall smoother transfer process.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The development team is not stopping there. We are actively working on adding support for BSC-Cardano conversions and optimizing the speed, security, and efficiency of token conversion processes.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">This continuous expansion further bridges the gap between previously isolated ecosystems and creates a more interconnected and efficient decentralized AI ecosystem.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Driving Platform Utilization in 2024</strong></h1><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Deep Funding</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;"><a href="https://deepfunding.ai/"><u>Deep Funding</u></a> (DF) is a community-driven program that has been created to support the SingularityNET Foundation’s mission of driving the development of a decentralized, democratic, inclusive, beneficial Artificial General Intelligence. The main goal of Deep Funding is ‘To help the Decentralized AI Platform grow’.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">In february 2024, DF has funded 80 diverse projects in 3 full Rounds and (recently) one Test round, pledging a total of $2,869,608 in AGIX to projects elected by the Deep Funding Community. This includes the development and usage of AI services on the decentralized AI Platform as well as and promotional initiatives and tooling contributing to the SingularityNET Platform’s adoption, growth, and success.</p><p style="margin-left:auto;"><img class="image_resized" style="width:680px;" src="https://miro.medium.com/v2/resize:fit:1400/0*DZ--Vt7GeJFJ_W_X" alt="" loading="lazy"></p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Deep Funding is also taking a lead role in SingularityNET’s decentralization efforts. The community not only decides which projects get awarded but is also deeply involved in the decision-making and operational management of the Deep Funding program. With a fast-growing program, the total organization of DF consists of only 2 regular contracted FTEs and more than 20 community members in charge of important tasks such as Marketing, Milestone reviews, community engagement, etc.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">In this section, we delve into the ongoing development of the DF platform, explore what motivated the introduction of SingularityNET Requests For Proposals (RFPs), highlight the importance of community building, and explain how you can get involved.</p><p style="margin-left:auto;"><img class="image_resized" style="width:680px;" src="https://miro.medium.com/v2/resize:fit:1400/0*65RqypvozN-JHprN" alt="" loading="lazy"></p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Deep Funding Platform Development</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">In mid-2022, Deep Funding started with a partnership with a ‘best of breed’ provider of a democratic ideation portal. While the initial progress was very encouraging, the development pace of the partner slowed down significantly, which resulted in a widening gap between the desired feature set and the delivered functionalities.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">At an early stage DF decided create their own frontend to the portal, in order to make the program less dependent on a third-party tool. The development was steadily continued until an ‘MVP’ stage of an in-house developed portal was within reach. In the <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RZkGXPFzF4"><u>June 2023 Town Hall</u></a>, the community opted to have one more round (<a href="https://deepfunding.ai/dfr3-results/"><u>Round 3</u></a>) on the existing platform while the development team continued to build a proprietary solution. This enabled the team to refine and further augment the platform with additional features.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Earlier this year, the new codebase was successfully deployed on <a href="https://deepfunding.ai/"><u>deepfunding.ai</u></a> and awarded projects and teams have been seamlessly migrated. At the moment of writing, the first Test Round on the new platform with 15 whitelisted teams has just been completed successfully. The feedback was very positive. No major issues have been found, and the experience has led to greater confidence and a number of concrete improvements.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">For a full overview of the current status and the roadmap of the DF portal, please read <a href="https://deepfunding.ai/platform-roadmap-2024-status-and-outlook/"><u>this blog</u></a>.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The main existing highlights of the new Proposal Portal are:</p><ul><li>A flexible but structured step-by-step way for proposers to submit their proposals, including (required) milestones, budget calculations, and team information;</li><li>The ability to invite team members and have them create their own profile on the platform;</li><li>Structured overviews of proposals and awarded projects, with sub-pages including all project details;</li><li>The start of an RFP (Request for Proposal) section and a process that will enable the community to ideate on and co-create RFPs;</li><li>Feedback options such as comments with hierarchical levels and a sophisticated ‘reviews and ratings’ section;</li><li>After each round, all data from awarded teams will be retained, kept up to date, and stay easily accessible.</li></ul><p style="margin-left:0px;">Main things to add before Deep Funding Round 4 (DFR4):</p><ul><li>Integrated notification system on new feedback, reactions, and other communication by mail and on the platform;</li><li>Scheduling options for all round-phases and visibility of the status, countdowns, etc. on the portal;</li><li>A number of smaller visual and structural improvements poised to make the overall experience better for proposers and the community.</li></ul><p style="margin-left:0px;">Things we will continue to work on during and after DFR4:</p><ul><li>Automated distribution and presentation of ‘progress surveys.’ These are short surveys sent out to the teams, so the community can stay informed on their process and signal situations where support is needed;</li><li>Backend workflow automations, such as automated contract creation and milestone approval process;</li><li>Building out the tools and processes to support (community-driven) RFPs;</li><li>A separate WordPress environment for presenting community information around Events such as Town Halls, News, Operational Circles, and more.</li></ul><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Deep Funding Request For Proposals (RFPs)</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">Deep Funding Round 3 saw the introduction of the <a href="https://deepfunding.ai/a-new-deep-funding-pool-snet-rfps/"><u>“SNET RFPs” (SingularityNET Requests For Proposal) pool</u></a>, reflecting our commitment to deepen our collaboration with the SingularityNET community, external partners, and the global open-source community.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">The RFP format allows more control and direction of outcomes than a generic pool has. This has many benefits:</p><ul><li>The SingularityNET development teams can define specific desired features that align with the Platform strategy and complement the internal development process, including SNET technologies such as MeTTa, DAS, and AI-DSL;</li><li>The Deep Funding staff can define specifications for tooling that support the Deep Funding program and <a href="https://deepfunding.ai/funding-with-purpose-growth-strategy/"><u>our main goals</u></a>;</li><li>The community and Deep Funding staff can use the RFP process to develop targeted solutions, such as frameworks that allow different teams to make their work interoperable instead of competing;<strong>**</strong><br>Partner organizations can use the RFP format to define conditions for specific solutions that will help their and our ecosystem, and support Deep Funding with grants, the engagement of their community, and new, functional services on and around the AI Platform.</li></ul><p style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>**</strong> A good example is the ‘Content Knowledge Graph’ RFP that is being developed by several collaborating community teams. This system will enable multiple parties to create <i>and manage</i> content independently, creating a consistent and up-to-date repository that can be used for a wide range of educational and informational purposes. If successful, this will mitigate the risk of a scattered landscape of overlapping and, eventually, outdated partial data repositories.</p><h1 style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Growth Strategy</strong></h1><p style="margin-left:0px;">Deep Funding’s impact <a href="https://deepfunding.ai/funding-with-purpose-growth-strategy/"><u>extends beyond mere funding</u></a>. We are actively creating a community of builders, a community where people will ideate, build, as well as educate, and support each other in the creation and utility of AI services on and around the decentralized AI Platform.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">We aim for this community to be inclusive and supportive, enabling everyone to contribute to our goals using their unique capabilities and experience. While the funding stream is and will remain a catalyst for development, we aim for Deep Funding to be more than ‘just’ a way to distribute grants to promising projects.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">Theoretically, DF in a mature state should be able to thrive even without this funding source, based on an active and supportive community with a shared purpose and a wealth of information and supporting tools.</p><p style="margin-left:0px;">In alignment with this ambition, we are working together with the community on several strategies that we believe will bring significant further growth to the program:</p><p style="margin-left:0px;"><strong>Partner engagement:</strong> We are in conversation with some partners on the possibilities of co-funding some pools and/or RFPs.
