Intelligent Contracts

Technology overview

  • VAIBC

    VAIOT’s proprietary distributed network concept, where Artificial Intelligence and blockchain are inseparably linked. AI algorithms, settled on-chain and taking part in the consensus algorithm, are necessary for the Intelligent Contract creation process. Blockchain confirms that every network participant is certain about the decisions made by AI and ensures that it cannot be manipulated or influenced from outside of the network. Both technologies have multiple dependencies within VAIBC.

  • AI Virtual Assistant

    The AI Virtual Assistant is a personal tool representing the ideal, natural user interface for the creation of Intelligent Contracts and acquisition of various products and services within the new digital service distribution channel. It ensures seamless experience, allowing the user to communicate with the VAIOT platform in a natural way and obtain goods and services more efficiently and affordably, with full data support and transparency. The assistant brings all the background processes together, as the Intelligent Contract is created in both human readable (printable, ready-to-sign) and coded form.

  • IBM Watson

    IBM Watson is one of the most recognized business solutions, utilizing the latest innovations in machine learning to support automation and optimization of complex processes. Its powerful tools, together with VAIOT proprietary algorithms, form most components of the platform, such as the AI Virtual Assistant or the VAIOT Code Generation Engine.

  • Cosmos SDK

    The Cosmos SDK is an open-source framework for building blockchains in an application-specific manner, within which VAIOT leverages its own proprietary solution.
    Modular structure provides heavily tested and fully customizable components that firmly bootstrap VAIOT applications. Cosmos breaks the barriers between blockchains by allowing them to communicate with each other in a decentralized way. Its features include scalability, modularity (consensus, networking and application layers) and interoperability. Cosmos SDK utilizes the Tendermint consensus algorithm for securely and consistently replicating an application on machines, even if one third of all nodes are malicious.

  • VAIOT Code Generation Engine (VCGE)

    AI combined with the VAIOT Code Generation Engine (VCGE) allows for the automatic conversion of an abstract description into an executable program, based on blockchain. A user-friendly application will allow consumers to input only the core elements of the contract. The AI will then identify the basic contract patterns and convert them into a clean and standardized Intelligent Contract. Certain aspects of the contract are coded and whenever set conditions are met, the contract is executed and an irreversible entry is made in the blockchain ledger. The usage of AI models guarantees the highest level of security of Intelligent Contracts and excellent code performance.

VAIBC technology concept

THE FOUNDATION OF VAIOT

VAIBC is characterized by an inseparable connection between AI and blockchain. VAIOT’s design entails the mutual dependency of these technologies. In the VAIBC concept, AI becomes the crucial component for network consensus and the creation of Intelligent Contracts, with blockchain serving as the underlying structure for the settlement of AI algorithms.

In the Intelligent Contracts technology, blockchain allows not only for immutability of transactions (data and value exchange) but also for immutability of the AI algorithms. They cannot be modified freely without the unambiguous decision of validators.

Powered by IBM WATSON

COOPERATION IN AI

VAIOT utilizes IBM Watson components, taking advantage of the latest innovations in machine learning. Watson’s openness and flexibility allows us to use this technology in almost every area of the VAIOT project, from contract generation to the development of intelligent distribution channels.

We use and plan to use IBM Watson further for:

  • Conversion from speech to text
  • Conversion from text to speech
  • Analysis of voice tone
  • Understanding of natural language
  • Understanding of formal language
  • Classifying natural language
  • Guaranteeing security of transactions
  • Pattern recognition
  • Image recognition
  • Optical character recognition
  • Language translation
  • Ensuring the highest level of user experience

The VAI Token

Token

The VAI Token is the digital currency of the VAIOT platform, reflecting the network’s value, crucial for the proper functioning of the underlying VAIBC technology.

VAI Tokens are used as:

  • A payment method for goods and services offered on the VAIOT platform,
