Contents of Gate AMA on February 20
Q: Could you start by introducing yourself to us?
I am Lee , co-founder of DeepBrain Chain. Today Feng has something to do temporarily, and I will replace him for this AMA. From 2011, we started our business in the field of artificial intelligence, and have taken $8 million investment from Qihoo 360, Gobi, JD, GSR and other investment institutions. At the end of 2011 we released China’s first smart voice assistant — Smart 360, in 2014 we released the world’s first voice interaction AI speaker — Xiaozhi Super Speaker (six months earlier than Amazon Echo, 3 years earlier than DuerOS speaker), in 2017 Feng and me founded DeepBrain Chain, and has been working on it til today.
我是Lee，今天Feng 临时有事由我代替他来做这次AMA。Feng和我从2011年开始在人工智能领域开展业务，先后获得奇虎360、戈壁、京东、金沙江等投资机构800万美元投资。2011年底我们发布了中国第一个智能语音助手 — — 智能360,2014年我们发布了全球第一个语音交互AI音箱 — — 小智超级音箱(比亚马逊Echo早6个月，比DuerOS音箱早3年)，2017年Feng和我创立了DeepBrain Chain，过去几年一直专注于DeepBrain Chain 产品技术研发及产品商业化落地。
Q: Can you give an overview of DeepBrain Chain as a whole?
问: 你能给我们一个DeepBrain Chain的整体概述吗?
DeepBrain Chain was founded in 2017 with the vision of building an infinitely scalable distributed high-performance computing network based on blockchain technology, in order to become the most important computing infrastructure in the era of AI+metaverse. DeepBrain Chain contains three important parts: high-performance computing network, blockchain mainnet and GPU computing mainnet. High-performance computing network officially launched at the end of 2018, blockchain mainnet on May 20th, 2021, GPU computing mainnet launched on November, 2021.
The mainnet of DeepBrain Chain is developed based on PolkaSubstrate, and DeepBrain Chain is also one of the very few high-performance computing projects in the blockchain industry that have achieved large-scale implementation. It has been widely used in various scenarios such as artificial intelligence, cloud games, cloud Internet cafes, and aleo mining. Provide high-performance GPU computing capabilities for many enterprises. More than 50 manufacturers around the world have deployed high-performance GPU cloud platforms based on the DeepBrain Chain network, serving hundreds of enterprises and tens of thousands of AI developer groups. For example, if you want to use DBC GPUs for AI training and reasoning, you can rent machines from haibao.io, if you want to play cloud games, you can use deeplink.cloud, and if you want to rent GPUs to mine Aleo, you can use teuring.cloud. These are all products based on dbc.
DeepBrain Chain成立于2017年，愿景是基于区块链技术构建一个无限可扩展的分布式高性能计算网络，以成为AI+元宇宙时代最重要的计算基础设施。DeepBrain Chain包含三个重要部分:高性能计算网络、区块链主网和GPU计算主网。高性能计算网络于2018年底正式上线，区块链主网于2021年5月20日上线，GPU计算主网于2021年11月上线。
DeepBrain Chain的主网基于PolkaSubstrate开发，DeepBrain Chain也是区块链行业中极少数实现大规模落地的高性能计算项目之一。它已广泛应用于人工智能、云游戏、云网吧、aleo挖矿等各种场景。为众多企业提供高性能GPU计算能力，全球累计有50多家厂商部署了基于DeepBrain Chain网络的高性能GPU云平台，服务于数百家企业和数万个AI开发者群体。比如如果想要用dbc 的gpu做ai训练和推理，可以租用haibao.io的机器，如果想要玩云游戏可以用deeplink.cloud，想要租用gpu挖aleo可以用teuring.cloud。这些都是基于dbc打造的产品。
Q: Every project has a final goal which it is aiming to reach. Whats that final goal of Deepbrain Chain?
DeepBrain Chain’s vision is to build an infinitely scalable high-performance distributed computing power network, Create a computing power infrastructure for AI and MetaVerse, and become the world’s largest gpu computing power network, with more than 1 million gpu computing power.
Q: Talking about AI.. why is it trending? 问:谈到人工智能。为什么会流行?
With the birth of chatgpt, AI technology is about to enter the era of general artificial intelligence. In the future, 90% of many things can be replaced by AI, which greatly improves productivity. AI is currently in the era of the Cambrian explosion, and AI will reshape every field.
If you don’t embrace AI, you will be eliminated.
Q: OpenAI’s ChatGPT causes Artificial Intelligence token prices to surge, including DBC. What is the relationship between DBC and chatgpt, AIGC?
ChatGPT is a representative product in the field of AIGC. The development and operation of products such as ChatGPT requires massive GPU resources as support.
DeepBrain Chain’s vision is to build an infinitely scalable high-performance distributed computing power network, and become the most important computing infrastructure in the AI+MetaVerse era.In the future, there will be more and more products similar to ChatGPT, and they all need a large number of GPUs to provide computing support. This is the opportunity for dbc
Q: Is there a 2023 roadmap?
DBC product technology has basically been developed, and the goal in 23 years is to expand more application scenarios, such as AIGC/metaverse, to meet the needs of these business scenarios. At the same time, we will increase marketing and promotion efforts to let more people understand and recognize the value of DBC. Another important thing is to attract outstanding talents from all over the world to join the DBC Council, to build a DBC ecology and share the fruits of DBC development.
Q： How to ensure that it is safe to invest in DBC?
You can participate in a variety of ways: buy DBC from the exchange; buy GPU servers to connect to the DBC computing power network; operate GPU cloud platforms, participate in node pledges to earn income, etc. No matter which way you participate, we hope that you will fully understand Invest on a project-by-project basis and participate in a way that suits you.
Q: How does the DBC network improve AI efficiency?
DBC has been widely used in various scenarios such as artificial intelligence, driverless vehicles, cloud games, visual rendering, biopharmaceuticals, etc.
DBC can provide more competitive prices, secure solutions, and meet the needs of edge high-performance computing.Details can be found on the official website www.deepbrainchain.org
Q: How to ensure the growing ecology, scalability, and network tolerance?
DBC products have been designed with this in mind at the beginning. The DBC computing power network can support hundreds of millions of nodes, and can meet the needs of ecological development in the foreseeable future.
DBC 产品在设计之初就考虑到这点，DBC 算力网络可以支撑亿级节点，在可预见的未来能够满足生态发展的需求。
Q：How does DBC attract people who are not virtual digital currencies?
This is exactly what we have been doing in the past few years. Our emphasis on commercialization is to attract people who have never been exposed to virtual digital currency, and let them gradually deepen their understanding of virtual digital currency in the process of using the product. For example, AI developers who use DBC network computing power need to use DBC for payment, and naturally become users of virtual currency; the same is true for users of cloud games and cloud Internet cafes, many of whom are exposed to virtual currency for the first time; Will attract more users to access virtual digital currency.
这正是我们过去几年一直在做的事情，我们强调商业化落地就是为了吸引原本没有接触虚拟数字货币的人，让他们在使用产品的过程中逐步加深对虚拟数字货币的了解。比如说AI开发者使用DBC 网络算力是需要使用DBC 进行支付，自然成为虚拟货币的用户；云游戏、云网吧用户也是如此，很多是第一次接触虚拟货币；随着DBC 落地规模扩大，我们会吸引更多用户接触虚拟数字货币。
Q: How to run the DBC node?
