Artificial Intelligence can be divided into two basic categories.
A) Fake AI, also called "Google AI" is a corporate scam designed to mislead individuals interested in AI in a path towards corporate waste. This type of 'AI' is mainly intended to keep the progression of 'AI' at the same pace it would have gone anyway, and conflate the mimicking of intelligence with the generation of intelligence. In other words the software and other tools that have always been used to generate AI will continue at the same pace, but new tools which are available to accelerate that growth will be discouraged.
B) Genuine AI involves, as it has always involved, the use of new tools to actually generate new information and intelligence. New tools today refers to network functions that can be added to digital currencies. The main component of these is human input using 'taskwork'.
A few early digital currencies, like Huntercoin, Motocoin, Neucoin etc tried to start the transition of the economy from nonproductive currencies to productive currencies, but for whatever reason so far wasteful 'fiat style' currencies like bitcoin have predominated. Corporate actors have so far been herding the public in the direction of fake ai development.
As of mid 2021 Numeraire looks like the most advanced precursor to ai coins. Another interesting coin is Idena, which seems to be laying the groundwork for a real ai coin, but it remains to be seen if it attracts developers interested in ai. It's initial developer has posted insightful comments about ai in the past before the coin even existed https://twitter.com/IdenaNetwork/status/1126759210450972673 and so far it looks like the closest thing to an early ai coin even if it has a lot of flaws still.
Most of what is called ‘artificial intelligence’ today is simply software. Like any tool, software does generate 'ai', but the fraud is in promoting the next step in ai as being a continuation of software. The first abacus that was invented was an ai tool. Imagine if humanity had spent the last 4,000 years on improving the abacus and had forgone developing microscopes, telescopes, computers and other ai tools which followed the abacus.
Making a computer appear human is not a step forward in ai.
Pretending that improved software is a new kind of ai is not a step forward in ai.
Should corporations be allowed to define ai, at the expense of science, to further corporate interests?
This page will give steps to create a basic artificial intelligence digital currency which actually uses artificial intelligence as it is best defined.
Governments around the world are preparing to launch ai digital currencies. They know that countries will be made or broken by their digital currencies soon.
They also know that there is a tremendous downside to the kind of currency that will develop, a loss of stability that will occur in some societies.
Local, small networks of ai digital currencies will help minimize that nightmare.
AI, artificial intelligence, is human intelligence expanded through artificial means.
Any tool can be used to extend some aspect of intelligence, to make it quicker or give it some other quality.
The ‘tool’ that digital currencies bring to ai is the ability to leverage the intelligence of hundreds of people at once on a network.
Steps to create a simple ai currency.
This is an extremely basic example, meant only to help a person understand this kind of coin. Anybody who has some skill with computers should be able to come up with a better example, this is just a basic simple example.
In this example one group is running both sides of the coin. Ideally two competing groups would be on opposing sides of the network, one designing ‘problems’, the other ‘solutions’.
1) Get a) a group of people who have basic computer skills, and b) a few people with extensive computer skills, coders, and c) a few people with good knowledge of a science. The example used here will be mathematics since most people have studied some math, and it makes the example simple.
2) Write a basic script that adds numbers. A person can enter a series of numbers and the script produces a sum. This will be a module within the coin which can be modified or replaced by anybody. The coin will need the ability to have additional modules added later.
3) If a person looks at the history of Huntercoin, Motocoin etc, it’s likely some of the taskwork some miners might do will involve anti bot activity i.e., adding integrity to the network. Most of the mining will be to challenge the speed of the addition script on one side, or add features to it on the other side, one side using tools to answer addition questions, the other side making the questions more difficult. The modules of the coin are similar to ‘bots’ used by hackers to outwit previous task coins like Huntercoin and Moto.
4) The coin will be designed to do the following
~4a) side a) create a block that can be solved by one person in x minutes i.e., the block time using the best tools easily distributed to miners online e.g. desktop calculator, scripts, etc.
~4b) side b) solve blocks as fast as possible, by either individuals or scripts/bots
~4c) Neither side should deliberately throw up roadblocks for bots, like capchas. In any science, as long as a coin is honest there will always be hacks that allow individuals to beat bots, and also which allow better bots.
~4d) In a more complex science than 'simple sums', each coin might need 'sub groups' initially until a good design is developed. Sub groups would be groups of people within each side of a coin who work along a specific development path. For example ten sub groups each developing bots for one of the two sides of the coin.
~4e) As long as the 'block creation' side of the coin is not hindered by artificial rules or limits the 'block solving' side will always have an endless number of development paths.
Here are some suggested parameters for any AI taskwork coin.
1) Slow emission of coins, and value which tracks another commodity.
Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple and many other coins gave a mass of coins to the initial developers so they would become fantastically rich quickly. A fair economy isn’t built by giving yourself most of the money. A coin does need liquidity from the start though, so some coins should be issued from the start and maybe given to a charity along with instructions on how to make a market in a coin. https://www.investopedia.com/terms/m/marketmaker.asp They could place sell orders at $1 intervals from $1 to $1,000 and use any proceeds to create low buy orders, then when the market is stable they can use profits to solve whatever issue they are a charity for.
So, initial distribution is a very small amount to provide liquidity, then coins are generated at a rate that keeps the value stable relative to another commodity. AI coins will ‘produce’ their own commodity, ai, but it has to be valued relative to more practical and immediate commodities like food and industrial wares. Making the economy purely speculative like bitcoin, ethereum, ripple etc makes no sense except to enable a few people to get rich running other people in pointless circles.
2) Block time on any coin should be a few minutes or less if it is to be used as a currency.
Block time has to be pretty quick if it is to be used as a currency, but if its value is tied to a commodity or basket of commodities then it can simply be arbitraged with a coin that has a faster block time.
With any taskwork coins bots are an issue, but with ai coins bots are one side of the coin, one of the two sides is specifically incentivized to create bots which ‘solve’ the blocks. So block times could be very unstable. One possibility might be to create a steady supply of blocks which are extremely difficult, but limit their acceptance into the chain to a certain number per time period. In general work should encourage the creation of bots and the basis of the coin is that the bots are outdated quickly. Once both sides have a steady way to get taskworkers to update bots as part of both sides of the coin then progress will start to accelerate.
3) Until coins have better security features there should be the easy ability to ‘consensus fork’ a coin to recover recently stolen coins. Wallets need more security features if a currency is going to be used widely by non tech people, or an entire industry will develop around stealing coins, as is the case with bitcoin.
4) There should always be ‘grunt work’ available on a taskwork coin, simple jobs which pay a little less but which literally anybody can do even if they know nothing about whatever science the coin focuses on. Grunt work tasks should be a small percentage of the economy, but they could be scaled from ‘utter grunt work’ to ‘semi important grunt work’.
Steps any coin can take to jumpstart the ai taskwork ecosystem.
1) Make a repository of open source work on GitHub apart from your coin which any coin can use. The point being that the repository and work should not be proprietary regardless which coin starts it. The repository can have any sort of modules that might be useful, like stripped down versions of motocoin, Huntercoin, neucoin etc to give anybody looking into that type of coin a head start.
2) Make a version of your coin easily forkable by any small group that wants to experiment. So a person can start their own coin with basic ai taskwork features on a new chain with just a few clicks. This obviously should not be done in a way that is sleazy, e.g. trying to overcapture monetary value from those forks, as is done with bitcoin forks.
