#Blockchain vs. #FakeNews

All media survive by monetization of their content. Using blockchain and crypto tokens, media platforms can establish self-sustaining economies. As an example, platform ASKfm is working on blockchain-based project ASQ Protocol. This project will allow to create and store content. But much more important, it can give access to the publications through the internal data encryption. And blockchain will guarantee the transparency of monetization.
Blockchain-based media platforms can promote high-quality content with tokens. To participate in Sapien Network, for example, users must have loсal tokens. This system protects internal media environment from third-party interventions, and without tokens, users can’t comment, post, or vote for publications. The platform prevents fake accounts and trolls activity and makes users think twice before posting or sharing some information.

@SingularityNET: Decentralize & Diversify Data Using Blockchain

@SingularityNET: Decentralize & Diversify Data Using Blockchain | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it
SingularityNET combines blockchain and A.I. to create smarter, decentralized A.I. Blockchain networks that can host diverse data sets. By creating an API of API’s on the blockchain, it would allow for the intercommunication of A.I. agents. As a result, diverse algorithms can be built on diverse data sets ” Khan said. “Think of the blockchain as this wide horizontal layer that stretches across all different cultures, nationalities and geographies. Everyone has access to this horizontal layer and can interact with this strata of technology, which allows people to upload and work with very diverse data sets. Unlike centrally controlled data sets, data sets on a blockchain networks are not firewalled or controlled by a central authority.”

Blockchain-based Initiatives for Encrypting Voice Data at @Snips, @Langnet

Blockchain-based Initiatives for Encrypting Voice Data at @Snips, @Langnet | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

Instead of users’ data being sent to the cloud for the AI to get smarter, the Snips ecosystem pays users in tokens to contribute their encrypted data to its blockchain network. The processed data is then aggregated by application developers, who now have new machine learning models that contain the encrypted user data. Since training the AI is done on the blockchain with encrypted federated learning, developers can take advantage of user data and add new applications to the Snips AIR platform. The users themselves never have to expose their personal information and compromise their privacy.

How Blockchain Technology Can Reshape the Language Industry

In the language industry, smart contracts could play a key role in the near future, especially in supply chain interaction. A Hong Kong based online translation platform announced its ICO in late 2017, and its cryptocurrency will make use of the Ethereum Blockchain for international payments and smart contract technology. It stressed that international businesses need international currencies.

@TranslateMe Builds #Blockchain System to Overcome Low-Resource Language Barrier | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it

TranslateMe owner: The single biggest thing missing from any current translation platform is data. It’s why they [market leaders] only support 20 high-quality languages out of 200. They don’t have the data to process” less common languages, or those predominantly spoken-word languages that lack large databases of written material. “13 million people [in South Africa] speak Zulu, and it’s terribly translated on Google.” Lloyd wants to resource data via human contributions, incentivized via the TranslateMe token, as a way to “incentivize human data contributions for more obscure languages.”

@snips Plan to Generate Better Conversational Data By Incentivising 'Workers' 

Our data generation tool has been available as a centralized, fiat-based SaaS for a few months, and has been used across all our enterprise customers. Our goal is to now decentralize it, using the upcoming Snips AIR token to incentivize “workers” to produce high quality training data. The first step is to hire workers and onboard them. This is done via a bounty program, where they are asked to generate data for internal Snips tasks in exchange for tokens. This enables both workers to start earning tokens, as well as learning how the process works. Anyone can be a worker, including users of Snips AIR. Once a worker has accumulated enough experience, they can start participating in data generation for developers.

LT-Innovate's insight:

Looks as if decentralized blockchain-type systems could both attract & reward targeted data contributors. Already widely practiced for language data production in Asia.

@Langnet Using @Blockchain to Build Voice Data Sharing Solution

At LangNet we are building an open source ecosystem of language data and resources so more companies and developers can start building for new languages, dialects and uses cases. While open source resources may not always be sufficient for fully optimized, commercial grade systems, they should start to address the data sparsity problem that today makes it very expensive to take on projects in new languages and domains. In turn, accessible data and broader participation should result in faster innovation cycles and more interesting, useful apps across more languages and markets.

LT-Innovate's insight:

Keep en eye open for new langtech-related blockchain projects in fields such as translation data and voice data
