A business-ready intelligence ecosystem
Open Fabric is an industry ready meta-platform that brings the internet of AI to products and services. It abstracts the algorithmic complexity, fosters seamless integrations and closes the gap between business problems and technical solutions.
Build a sustainable ecosystem
Following the law of accelerated returns , the extraordinary growth of Artificial Intelligence in recent years promises to reshape our society in a way never imagined before. The new technological revolution is expected to create a positive impact on all aspects of our lives. However, this vast potential is still unexplored because the bridge between innovation and practical solutions is still fragile.
Moving things forward depends on solving the following problems:
the colossal fragmentation of information and data standards affects interoperability;
cross-organisational differences are slowing down cooperation;
existing algorithms and solutions require custom adaptation in almost all integration cycles;
the inherent complexity of AI doesn’t have an abstraction layer to match the business needs;
practical industry-wide policies on data access, data ownership and data privacy.
THE ECONOMY OF INTELLIGENCE
Unprecedented growth and prosperity resulted in the past from the augmentation of human labour with machine power during the industrial revolution . Similarly, we experience the beginning of a new kind of revolution with an exponential outcome where this time, the human intellect gets augmented with knowledge. We experience the transition to a new society and economy where intelligence is the governing factor.
The transition to a more vigorous society and a better economic model requires considering the following aspects:
use intelligence as the primary governing factor and currency of exchange
allow innovators to monetize their work and create appropriate incentives encouraging exploration and research
surpass of the barrier for mass adoption and development of solutions with practical use
augment businesses and services with an intelligence layer
Beyond state of the art
A pragmatic solution
Openfabric is an ecosystem that harnesses the power of blockchain [6,7,8,9], distributed ontologies [10,11], advanced cryptography [12,13,14] and multiparty computation [15,16] by developing a novel infrastructure capable of supporting the authentic AI revolution. As depicted in the image below, the logical structure of the architecture implies several layers. At the top are stakeholders interacting with the platform through specialized tools connected with the underlying network services sustained by blockchain.
Openfabric envisioning a holistic interaction between four significant stakeholders: AI Innovator, Infrastructure Provider, Data Provider and Service Consumer:
The AI Innovator interacts with the Openfabric ecosystem through Openfabric toolkit, a collection of CLI tools used to develop, test and deploy AI algorithms
Similar to AI Innovator, the Data Provider connects to the system through the same toolkit. Using the platform, he publishes data sets that can be used to train AIs charging a fee for this
Infrastructure Provider rents his computational power to the network. He provides an environment where the Openfabric worker node operates, a container for the Operfabric virtual machine. He is responsible for the execution of AI algorithms fed with data provided by the Service Consumer
The Service Consumer represents the end-user that needs to solve a real problem employing AI algorithms accessible in the network using the computational power provided by the network. At the consumer level, the interaction with the ecosystem is performed using the Openfabric store DApp or the Openfabric SDK
