SWAZM — Coding the Future Internet & Revolutionizing Machine Learning

There is little surprise that in today’s society, artificial intelligence is becoming more and more present in our lives, and as its presence increases, so does the need to control and guide it within the existing societal structures. As its nature is fluid, keeping it within limits proves to be difficult.

As real-life individuals, we learn by being in close proximity to other humans. As data-generated technology, machines learn by processing information. The larger the amount they compute, the smarter they are prone to become.

Machine learning is an application of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides systems the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience without the need of being programmed. This type of digital learning focuses on the development of computer programs that can access data, process it at great speed, and use it to learn for themselves, by synchronizing the pieces of information that are being shared in the system at a given time.

Since AI is a technology that aims to enhance the condition of humankind, so do people need to come together helping it grow and learn in a connected and transparent way. The more AI learns, the more it increases its capacities to process information, at a level that is yet to be matched by human cognitive capabilities. Given access to all information available to mankind, good and bad, we need to make sure that such capabilities are not monopolized, molding them in the way it benefits the structure/institution that hosts it.

Technology is a tool, and it depends on us on how we use it, and thus the results we obtain. SWAZM’s vision is that it should support creativity, empower us to create a better world, advancing the society that we had growing up. Enthusiasm is usually correlated with young age, and as we are young, so is the blockchain. We envision a world where collaboration is key.

If we look at blockchain as a philosophy, it talks about the direct connection between the members of society, without the mediation of other structures. As in all human history, technology is the trailblazer of social change, pushing humankind forward, to a better and more collaborative environment, all individuals working together for the common good.

As a tool, technology should support human creativity and act as a platform for bringing new ideas to life, in a world where people collaborate without any intermediaries, bonding over ways in which we all can participate in making this world a little bit better than we found it. As tech, blockchain seems impersonal, but its usage is what makes it fit organically inside the shared culture we live in the 21st century, in the world we dream of building for the next generations.

SWAZM introduces a new blockchain architecture designed to enable horizontal scaling of decentralized applications. This is achieved by creating a new blockchain with a reliable transfer network, storage capabilities, and compute containers. The resulting technology is a blockchain infrastructure that may ultimately scale to sustain millions of applications, enable the writing of any kind of technology and allow for quick and easy deployment and maintenance of decentralized applications.

Blockchain technology comes to simplify the machine learning process, by creating an ever-expanding storage space, along with smart buildability capabilities through leveraging the computational power/resources and the contribution with pieces of content from creators. The aim is to have a double usage, training the AI and being able to monetize creators’ content and storage / computational power used in bringing the data to life.
