The major challenges faced by businesses looking to implement AI and machine learning include transparency, bias, and quality of training data.
Swedish startup Unbiased is launching a new Data Marketplace on the Telos blockchain platform, aimed at providing privacy-centric and decentralized development tools to companies working with AI and Machine Learning applications.
These include tools to help with data collection, annotation, labeling and analytics, all with blockchain certificates. Unbiased uses the Telos blockchain to track actions on the Data Marketplace platform, including the creation of projects and tasks, worker contributions and the exchange of data to ensure transparency across the process.
“Unbiased uses the Telos blockchain to improve transparency and integrity, allowing users to trust and validate whether their dataset annotations are happening according to set requirements,” says Sukesh Tedla, founder and CEO of Unbiased. “In addition to the obvious draw of Telos’ powerful governance tools and low operational costs, we share a mission with Telos to build a new global economy focused on decentralization and trust.”
With AI spending expected to double over the next four years oncerns over privacy, fairness, and transparency are growing. The European Union is researching the potential impacts of AI and how to best address them.
“Intersections are always where the most interesting and vibrant developments occur and the intersections of blockchain, and AI and machine learning will be a great example of this. Unbiased will show these industries how recording data on a high performance, no-fee blockchain like Telos can add transparency, immutability, micropayments and governance into their products for the benefit of all stakeholders,” says Douglas Horn, chief architect of the Telos Blockchain. “Perhaps the most immediate benefit will be the ability for individuals to earn incomes by better supplying, preparing and validating AI data sets, greatly increasing their value to industry and creating a new option for earning money during these challenging economic times.”
The Data Marketplace is supported by Unbiased WorkForce, a crowdsourcing platform with data collection and annotation tools needed to source AI and ML datasets. At launch, the platform supports over 20 project and task types. If you’re interested you can contribute and earn money by signing up, finishing the qualifier tasks and working on paid tasks.
