What is Dbrain?
Dbrain is an open blockchain platform that links crowdworkers and data scientists enabling them to transform raw data into real-world AI solutions. Crowdworkers do simple tasks of data labelling and validation, and are paid instantly in cryptocurrency for their work. Data scientists use the resulting datasets to train Neural Networks (NN) and build AI apps. Businesses use existing AI solutions or specify new ones to serve their particular needs. Dbrain automates AI production and data workflow by providing efficient tools to all parties, including a web application, a Telegram bot, and a mobile app.
Security and trust
Sharing sensitive data with third parties, and even in-house developers, poses certain security risks. AI developers can replicate third-party software within a very short time when given access to someone else’s data.Dbrain protects data owners’ interests and prevents leaks at all stages of AI app development. No matter who uploads data on the platform, the Protocol for Indirect Controlled Access to Repository Data (PICARD) protects datasets and AI apps hosted on the platform. It also allows data scientists to train AI models using datasets without downloading them, and to sell AI solutions to business clients later on. The protocol guarantees security and trust in the Dbrain community with regards to data access control and reward distribution.
Subjective Proof of Crowdwork Protocol (SPOCK)
Dbrain guarantees quality of datasets without any work duplication. To align the incentives for crowdworkers, Dbrain implements the Subjective Proof of Crowdwork Protocol (SPOCK), which validates data quality automatically and guarantees real-time, fair, transparent billing to workers and data owners. They have several requirements for their rating and task validation system to be able to process task completion and validation in real time:
-Online calculations. They need to evaluate work results as they arrive using only data stored publicly in their Ethereum smart contracts and in their permissioned blockchain .
–Transparency. All rating changes and billing events should be visible to task requesters and workers online.
–Reproducibility. Calculations must be simple enough that an involved party can reproduce them independently.
The Dbrain platform
They offer a wide range of turnkey and custom AI solutions, integration, and customization for their clients’ particular needs. Static image recognition, video surveillance and action detection, medical data processing, and content analysis of text streams.:
-Image recognition –They reduced the cost of processing one image from 10-100 US cents to a fraction of a penny by using a deep learning network, thus saving millions of dollars for one of the biggest e-commerce marketplaces.
-Video surveillance-Surveillance companies will upload videos from surveillance cameras onto the Dbrain platform. Crowdworkers will detect and tag unusual videos and send them to the neural network.
-Medical data processing-Pathologists do not have a platform for data exchange on cancer detection and on many other illnesses. Dbrain will create a protocol for exchanging data between all parties concerned in different countries, with different legal restrictions.
