A group of data, technology and digital services organisation joined with AI Global, a non-profit organisation focused on advancing the responsible design, development, and use of artificial intelligence technologies, to launch the world’s first open AI marketplace, AI Global Marketplace.
The AI Global Marketplace is an online AI collaboration hub that brings together high-value AI building blocks and digital professional services to accelerate best practices in practical and responsible applications of AI technologies.
The launch group includes CognitiveScale, data.world, HyperGiant, IEEE, USAA, and The University of Texas at Austin.
The marketplace will host more than 2,000 high-value AI assets focused on customer engagement and process intelligence problems for the banking, insurance, healthcare and digital commerce markets.
Reportedly, this will also help data scientists, software developers, researchers, and business experts to rapidly and securely discover, collaborate, and consume AI building blocks with ensured authenticity and audit trails to build AI systems that increase user engagement, improve decision-making, and deploy self-learning business processes.
“The future of AI is critically dependent on stakeholders working together to create best practices, share findings and insights, and drive hands-on innovation,” said Tom Meredith, Chairman of AI Global said in a statement.
He further added, “unlike traditional think tanks, this marketplace provides an open ‘do-tank’ environment that furthers our mission at AI Global to advance adoption of digital intelligence to benefit humanity.”
Software assets in the AI Global Marketplace are based on the beta version of an open interface called the Cognitive Agent Modeling and Execution Language (CAMEL). Data owners, model developers and skill owners can connect, as well as upload, and enrich their work in the AI Marketplace.
Future developments to the AI Global Marketplace will include blockchain based mechanisms to securely enhance data ownership assurance. It will also include a new digital token-based micropayment marketplace to help securely transfer, buy, and sell fine-grained data, models, skills, and agents allowing a business-to-business AI economy, as well as allowing researchers and hobbyists to participate.
