Turing phase

Phase completion estimate: October 2023

The Turing phase, named after computer science pioneer Alan Turing, introduces the V6 Decentralized Knowledge Graph (DKG V6) which innovates with Knowledge Assets to enhance information discovery, ownership, and verifiability. These advancements drive value in sectors such as supply chains, healthcare, and more. OriginTrail introduces ChatDKG, a framework for AI based on trusted knowledge, addressing generative AI models' (like ChatGPT) flaws, based on verifiable origin and trusted trail of information. Initially launched on OriginTrail's own blockchain - the NeuroWeb, the V6 DKG enables expansion to other EVM blockchains.

ONGOING
Q3 2023 - 2025

Metcalfe phase

Inspired by Turing award winner Dr Bob Metcalfe and his pioneering work, including "Metcalfe's Law" and the creation of the first computer network, the OriginTrail Metcalfe phase aims to leverage network effects through building a web of verifiable Knowledge Assets for decentralized AI. Building on the rapid AI development propelled by tech giants like Google, Microsoft , Elon Musk’s xAI and OriginTrail’s own achievements, the Genesis period of the Metcalfe phase bootstraps growth of the AI-native V8 Decentralized Knowledge Graph (DKG V8). Supported by a unique Knowledge mining system through the Neuro Web, the Genesis period is followed by a “Convergence” period, which further leverages network effects via autonomous knowledge inferencing. The DKG V8 aims to offer a user-centric, trusted knowledge foundation with decentralized AI functionalities, enabling individuals and organizations to participate in a knowledge economy based on neutrality, inclusiveness, and usability - the core principles of the OriginTrail ecosystem.

Genesis (Q4 2023 - 2025)

“When you connect things together, the value rises really fast because of all the possible connections that can be made, and the friction that’s reduced, and the collaboration that’s enhanced. So it’s good to bet on connectivity.”- Dr Bob Metcalfe

The Genesis period leverages connectivity to achieve network effects across the multi-chain OriginTrail Decentralized Knowledge Graph to reach a growth target of 1B Knowledge Assets. With the introduction of the community driven Neuro network supporting DKG growth, Genesis bootstraps the OriginTrail AI-Native version 8 - never before seen concepts such as incentivising useful knowledge creation via Knowledge Mining and curation via Knowledge Signaling paves the way towards the Convergence and the autonomous Decentralized Knowledge Graph.

Genesis period targets:

  • 1B knowledge assets available on the DKG
  • Minimum 40% of TRAC circulating supply activated for utility
    • TRAC locked for network security: 100MM+ TRAC
    • Average security collateral per node: 300k+ TRAC

Convergence (2025+)

“... through connectivity, decentralized knowledge graphs, blockchains and AI are converging - and it’s an important convergence, because it is going to help us with one of the biggest problems we have nowadays, which is the truth”- Dr Bob Metcalfe

With the Genesis period completed the OriginTrail DKG will have a large enough number of Knowledge Assets created (1B) to kickstart the “Convergence”. Leveraging network effects, growth gets further accelerated through autonomous knowledge publishing and inferencing capabilities of the DKG, fueled by decentralized knowledge mining protocols of Neuro WebNetwe. During the Convergence, supported by OriginTrail V8 with AI-native features and further scalability increase, the OriginTrail DKG grows the largest public Decentralized Knowledge Graph in existence, a verifiable web of collective human knowledge - the trusted knowledge foundation for AI.

Convergence period targets:

  • 100B knowledge assets available on the DKG
  • Minimum 60% of TRAC circulating supply activated for utility
    • TRAC locked for network security: 150MM+ TRAC
    • Average security collateral per node: 500k+ TRAC
