Intelligent machines can solve problems, such as having to work, drive, or clean your home. Super-intelligent machines can potentially solve even bigger challenges, such as hunger or natural disasters.
We believe that highly sophisticated data processors, individuals or organizations with intellectual property (IP) for processing or holding data, can form networks that independently learn and grow much more rapidly than a simple neural network. The conduit to super-intelligence will be through the formation of Decentralized Collaborative Processing Networks (DCPNs) where highly sophisticated data processors work together to create a larger super mind.
A great example of a naturally occurring simple DCPN is the collaboration in medical research done by virologists during the outbreak of Zika. But how can you bring sophisticated researchers together when the urgency is not as tangible as an epidemic? How do you encourage collaboration to find solutions to global warming, war, and pollution?
The Dopamine Network is the first ecosystem for Decentralized Collaborative Processing Networks (DCPN), protecting individuals’ IP while providing an incentive structure designed to encourage collaboration and penalize bad actors. The world is dominated by centralized organizations who do not collaborate because societal and economic incentivizes encourage competition and IP protection.
Through the use of Ethereum smart contracts and Dopamine tokens, we can economically incentivize individuals and organizations to use their IP collaboratively, reducing the need to trust each other or join a centralized organization. Dopamine is committed to building an ecosystem of data suppliers and consumers of processed data who will supply data to and purchase results from the DCPN. Our mission is to attract, through economic incentivization, the world’s first DCPN structured in a way that allows for learning, growth, and general super intelligence.
