Microsoft leverages blockchain for AI initiatives

Microsoft is using blockchain technology to make advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning more accessible.

Typically, researchers looking to learn about various AI projects must request information on a per-query basis. The datasets are also generally proprietary and expensive to create.

Through the use of blockchain, Microsoft aims to give people an easy and cost-effective way to run machine learning models with technology they already have, such as browsers and apps on phones and other devices.

Microsoft's Decentralized Collaborative AI on Blockchain is a framework where participants can continually train and maintain machine learning models while also building datasets on public blockchains. The framework is ideal for AI-assisted scenarios people have daily, including interacting with personal assistants, playing video games or using recommender systems.
