Decentralized AI Alliance (DAIA) develops and launches open-source code using AI and blockchain to combat coronavirus.
DAIA announced on its blog its partnership with decentralized platform SingularityNET and decentralized data exchange protocol Ocean protocol to launch CoVIDathon an online Hackathon to help the people in dealing with COVID-19 and other related issues. The partnership leverages decentralized AI for “positive social impact and connecting our global community of medical, AI, and blockchain experts to promote positive change.”
"One of the few positive things about crisis situations is the potential they have to bring people together. This is the spirit in the teams at DAIA, Ocean Protocol and SingularityNET, who have decided to divert some energy from our usual pursuits to launch the CoVIDathon,” DAIA said about the project.
“It is a rare moment when a large portion of humanity’s resources is focused on the same problem. We believe that decentralized AI, even in its current early stage of development, is an extremely valuable resource, and we would like to see it deployed as effectively as possible to get humanity beyond the COVID-19 crisis and on to its next stage of development.”
CoVIDathon aims to help leverage the resources of the decentralized AI community to battle the virus and its various consequences. It wants to develop and launch an open-source code using AI and blockchain to reduce the risk and infectious outbreaks from the coronavirus pandemic.
CoVIDathon is hosted on Devpost with a dedicated GitHub repository for open collaboration. It will run for two months. It will officially start on April 1 and the proposals for the first phase can be submitted on May 1.
DAIA members who are coming on board are categorized in two levels - active supporters and major supporters. The first level is for active supporters who provide active technical support, market CoVIDathon in a relevant community and leverage PR resources to promote it in public. The second level is for major supporters who provide developer time from a project’s in-house team or contribute funds to the prize purses for CoVIDathon participants.
DAIA believed that the tools and collaborations formed from the partnership will be valuable not only for combating COVID-19 but for a variety of humanitarian technological and scientific purposes after the current pandemic.
Meanwhile, Binance Charity is encouraging its followers to retweet a post. The charity promised to donate $1,000,000 if the post reaches one million retweets within a week.
