Easter Egg 1/3

"A computer would deserve to be called intelligent if it could deceive a human into believing that it was human,"

Alan Turing, 1950

ScyNet is a smart-contract based, decentralized network of computing nodes that provide processing power to "controller" algorithms which generate and evaluate Deep Learning model designs (AI agents) for various domains.

In simpler terms, ScyNet is a network of programmers & trainers (or miners), united by a common goal - to produce a better AI Agent for a certain game* through useful PoW (uPoW).

The computing power needed to train the AI agents is contributed by nodes via a uPoW protocol. Once a better AI is built, all participants are rewarded, thus providing further incentive to design and train superior agents.

*e.g. cryptocurrency trading where an AI agent learns how to predict what the price of Bitcoin would be in the next 5 minutes.

programmers

They engineer and deploy AI code that learns to write AI code. This is also known as ...

hatcheries

The hatchery (or controller AI) writes AI code (eggs), each with its own specific structure.

eggs

The newly-hacthed AI code (egg) has a specific neural net structure (called genome), but it lacks knowledge.

trainers

Trainers apply computational power to eggs thus helping them acquire knowledge about the game they play.

reward

Tokens are issued and distributed among the creators and trainers of the new and better AI agent. The cycle goes on.

The chosen one

The network validates that one agent is better than all the others.

validation

Trainers also serve as Validators and utilize a validation dataset to confirm if the agent’s performance is better than all the previous ones.

knowledge

When an egg in training learns something about the game it plays, we say it has gained knowledge.

"Over the next 20 to 30 years, I believe that our most pressing challenges will be driven by AI and robotics. Not in the style of the Terminator, though. Instead, my concern comes from the potential for significant technological unemployment."

Peter Diamandis, 2017

Easter Egg 3/3

"We know that blind evolutionary processes can produce human-level general intelligence, since they have already done so at least once. Evolutionary processes with foresight—that is, genetic programs designed and guided by an intelligent human programmer—should be able to achieve a similar outcome with far greater efficiency."

Nick Bostrom, Superintelligence, 2014
