An Independent Bot Economy to Support the Future of AI

The SEED token enables an open and trusted bot economy.

Whether text, voice, or video-based, bots already generate more Internet traffic than people. CUIs are the front-end that compliment AI technologies on the back-end. They generate new interactions and valuable data (such as emotional data) that feed AI knowledge bases and are critical to the future success of AI—as well as digital services.


The future of AI relies on the future of bots.


Currently, CUIs are complex to build and require resources that only a handful of companies have and offer. Imagine trying to build-out the Web with only 10 companies with HTML tools and access: the Web doesn’t happen.

These conversational user interfaces (CUIs) tell us where to drive, what to do with our finances, and how to manage our health.

They create new classes of interactions and data (like affect and emotion), requiring greater trust, openness, and equality.

The SEED token is an open-source solution using blockchain technology so that bot interactions can be authenticated, managed, and remunerated in order to establish an interface to AI that is a democratic, trusted, and fair (exchanging value equally). It enables bot developers, users, and the companies that will deploy bots for their customer relationships to thrive unencumbered by the large multinationals that currently dominate these technologies.


We’re building a bot store on the blockchain.


Our bot stores allow developers of all types and sizes to contribute tools and solutions and build and offer bots with others’ contributions. Our blockchain compensates every contributor every time a bot runs. This is the developer-focused creative marketplace that was never built for music, video, or other publishing.

The SEED token is managed by Seed Vault Ltd., a non-profit organization based in Singapore.

Are you interested in updates as we roll out the project?

  

Like the leap from command-line interfaces to graphical user interfaces, CUIs are more natural for people to use and will change all computing systems in every industry, opening-up opportunities for new services, applications, and users.

Bots & CUIs represent the next paradigm shift in computing systems...

The bot market is estimated to grow from $3bn to $20bn by 2021...

Bots are difficult for developers to create and manage and for end users to trust...

Imagine a decentralized bot network with marketplaces as usable as the App Store...

Why a new token?

This new solution requires a new token. Existing digital currencies or niche tokens aren’t suited to the authentication or remuneration needs of the bot economy. The SEED token is optimized for bot transactions and use with SEED bot publishing stores. Read our technical white paper for more details.

Preparation:

Preparation of Botanic Technologies tools, code (clients, servers, and middleware components) that drive natural language processing, audio, and animation via both real-time 3D (OpenGL) and / or real-time video (MP4).

Token Sale:

Seed Vault Ltd. will offer tokens in early 2018. The specific schedule and token sale details (exchanges, conditions, etc.) will be released in the coming months. Patents and other intellectual property will be open-sourced during the token sale under the GNU AGPLv3. This opens the tools needed to create, edit, deploy and interact with multi-modal bots and the SEED token, network and applications. more...

Post-Sale:

Immediately following the token sale, Seed Vault Ltd will build and roll-out the SEED network, as well as other projects and tools designed to establish the necessary tools for SEED to succeed and help bot-developers create better and more sophisticated bots, more quickly. more...
