[Short general description]: Nebula AI is a decentralized blockchain, integrated with artificial intelligence computing services. It can significantly reduce the traditional electricity usage on mining, by converting GPU mining machines into AI computing units. It allows anyone access AI computing resources from anywhere to anyplace in the world.
[Main problems tackled]: Nebula will utilize the decentralization of blockchain technology to rent and distribute the computing power of artificial intelligence machines globally. Blockchain encryption technology efficiently avoids the problem of internal leakage and the maintenance of distributed AI calculation units is handed over to the owners of various AI calculation units, which considerably reduces the workload of maintenance.
1) Shared AI Computing Platform - will address the unbalanced demand between consumers and suppliers of AI devices.
2) AI Physical Computing Units - a large number of GPU computing mining machines can be converted into AI computing units, from simple hash calculation into more meaningful AI task calculation
3) Decentralized AI Applications - requires a corresponding interface for DAI App programmers to invoke conveniently and use the platform’s computing power. It includes the payment API, computing capacity estimation API and work estimation API, etc., in order to speed up the development of AI applications.
4) Integrated IPFS Distributed Storage - IPFS storage system to replace the traditional centralized cloud storage or local file storage, in order to achieve better distributed storage.
5) AI Engineer Training Center - a systematic artificial intelligence training center to provide practical knowledge in the field of artificial intelligence.
[Main contribution proposal]: The NBAI ecosystem consists of two major components, the NBAI foundation and the NBAI system. The NBAI foundation supports the development, operation, and management of blockchain development platforms, AI joint labs, and engineer training centers. NBAI system integrates the top-level applications such as DAI App, scientific research and application, university education, and the bottom-level of NBAI blockchain, Artificial Intelligence Mining Machine and Artificial Intelligence Data Center
[Innovation]: The first phase of the project will be implemented using an independent ether chain Helix (PoW) after which: Orion (PoG) - with Proof of Group, Nebula will use consensus systems and NBAI credit mechanisms to ensure efficiency and security.
In PoG, Nebula will use consensus systems and NBAI credit mechanisms to ensure efficiency and security through:
1) Work Node and Ledger - main artificial intelligence computing task execution node; its main role is to perform artificial intelligence computing tasks.
2) Communication Among Groups - the network uses the Byzantine consensus system for joint ledger, which fully guarantee the balance between preventing 51% attacks and ledger efficiency
3) Task Implementation - users submit tasks to solve certain problems, and the users will set the task revenues. Either task comes with a small smart contract system for submitting contracts and calculations. Mining will receive task revenues and ledger revenues at the same time.
3) Cross-Chain Service Usage - components will be decentralized.
4) AI Data Center and Mining Machine -t o guarantee adequate AI power supply before large-scale users join, Nebula will cooperate with large-scale third-party Internet data centers in Quebec. Quebec has a very competitive global electricity bill, a cold climate, abundant resources and 34 data centers.
5) NBAI Optimized Design - which ensures Data Security Encryption; Data will be saved using Homomorphic Encryption
6) Distributed System Optimization - can be speeded up by the equal segmentation of big data processing.
