AI+ blockchain, is it a gimmick or an opportunity, what kind of spark will the combination of the two?
On the evening of June 19th, the ChainNode live room (formerly Babbitt Live Room) invited Jarvis+ co-founder and CEO Stephen Wu to help Jarvis+ use AI technology to serve the community. How artificial intelligence can make each community have a personal assistant How the token will be applied to the community management ecology and other issues.
The following is a live recording, organized by the ChainNode live broadcast .

Xiao Yan: The topic we are going to talk about today is the AI+ blockchain. It is a very hot topic. Before you officially enter the theme, let Stephen Wu introduce how you first learned about Bitcoin and blockchain. ?
In fact, I know Bitcoin is very early. I learned about Bitcoin in the reddit community in 2012, but I didn't think it was a business at the time. I thought it was a very cool program. My undergraduate degree is mathematics, so I was very interested in encryption. I used my PC for a while and dug up two more bitcoins.
Xiao Yan: This story is very interesting. How did you decide to join the blockchain to do something?
Here we want to introduce our team, our team is a mix and match team. Both of us and the two founders came from the traditional Internet and have been playing games for more than a decade, from page tours, end tours, mobile games to console games. The other three founders are from Microsoft China Asia Research Institute.
The blockchain was particularly hot at the end of 2016 and at the beginning of 2017. We were thinking about things other than Token that could change the entire industry. We used to play games and felt that a market should be simple enough to sink, enough to sink enough to have enough scale, and this market will mature. But whether it is a wallet address or a hash value, it is quite complicated for ordinary people, and I want to be able to use the simpler method to let the blockchain enter all ordinary people.
We feel that we can use AI's NLP natural language processing technology to do a very cool thing. At that time, we wanted to be a partial trading robot. Later, we found that the community is very important for the blockchain. The common people understand the blockchain, the community. Probably his first stop, so there is the Jarvis+ project.
In January 2018, the team completed the overtime work for more than three months and finally completed the entire Jarvis+ code. The first appearance was very successful, the whole team was full of confidence, and then on the returning plane everyone decided to all in this thing, so there is the Jarvis+ project we saw today. Xiao Yan: Can you talk to us about the specific situation of Jarvis+?
The function of the Jarvis+ project is not like other projects, it can be seen at a glance. It is actually like water. If you put it in a bottle, it might be mineral water. If you put it in a large pond, it might be a swimming pool.
The Jarvis+ project is divided into two phases:
In the 1.0 phase, the main focus is on community services. The main users of the product are the group owners to the B-side or the administrators of the community economy.
There are a lot of features in the community that are useful for the secondary market. For example, if Twitter is too long, you can query the number of references to a token on Twitter for the last hour. For example, we have a Boot like Airdrop, which can help you quickly build awareness of the project at the beginning of the project, and help users reach consensus through questions and answers or incentives.
In the 2.0 stage, we flatten the data providers and data users through the Bot-winding protocol and the social data mart.
For the Bot automatic data-spinning protocol, we all know that data-winding is very important for the blockchain. Although there are many ways to call the data source externally, such as Oracle, this method is still itch. If the data can be chained, especially if the assets of the data can be chained, it will definitely make a big difference.
At this stage, the easiest to get on the chain is game assets, because the game assets themselves are digital, but we feel that it is not enough to have game assets. It is more important to have data bound to entities like humans. . For example, we use WeChat, Telegram, WhatsApp, and the data chain of such chat tools every day, we think it is very important.
So one of the most important functions of Jarvis+2.0 is the data chaining, and it is the data chain that is transparent to the user and does not affect the user's perception.
Social data marts, we are being violated privacy every day, but we don't know. Merchants who use a lot of our data to generate added value actually get the value they want from us without compensation. Can we increase our privacy protection while usability? It may seem like a contradiction. But we feel that under the specific vertical business scene in AI, we think it is possible, so this is the social data mart after our social data is on the chain. Xiao Wei: How is Jarvis+ implemented in terms of privacy protection?
The first question, what is the relationship between our products and the blockchain?
In fact, there are two very important relationships. The first relationship is the competition in each project in the blockchain industry, or the biggest value behind each project. We think it is a community.
Therefore, the value of the community is greater than that of the traditional enterprise. The community of the traditional enterprise is often used as a cost center. Whether it is pre-sales, after-sales or some support departments, it does not create orders and does not generate cash flow. So many companies have bought one-on-one customer service robots. The main criterion for evaluation is how much manpower it can save for the company and how much it saves.
The blockchain industry is totally different. I remember that in the 17 years when the ICO was very hot, investors who had never met could raise millions of dollars in a few seconds. Without the power of the community, I think I can't imagine it.
Therefore, the blockchain community is actually more important than the traditional corporate community, and there are some technically biased projects, developers are not entirely project parties. Many developers are scattered around the world. How do you bring them together to generate consensus and participate in project development? In fact, it is also the achievement of a community-based consensus.
Therefore, the core combination of the Jarvis+ 1.0 phase and the blockchain is not the so-called pass-through model, but the value of the community to the blockchain. We are a homegrown blockchain empowering community economy project, completely tailored for the blockchain, including some of our KYC Bot features, Airdrop features, in other non-blockchain industries, there is actually no We walked so thoroughly.
The second point, just mentioned the general economy, our token can be paid directly in the 1.0 stage, which may be considered by many people to be a cash function, not a blockchain. But you may have forgotten that many of the companies we serve are blockchain companies. They are not as rich as traditional big companies, but they have tokens, and their tokens can be converted into our JARs according to a certain ratio. Enjoy our services without taking up cash flow. So we think that the second and blockchain concept is combined with the payment function of our token.
In the 2.0 phase, there is no doubt that our entire Bot Winding Agreement and our storage, including our data, are completely dependent on the blockchain, or even the infrastructure of the blockchain.
Regarding privacy protection, first of all, the use scenario of Jarvis+ uses multi-player and multi-round, group chat data without obvious context and theme, and is not subject to EU's GDPR privacy protection agreement. Secondly, because the Jarvis+2.0 phase uses blockchain technology to determine rights and transactions, such social data can be easily found by chain assets, and whether or not to agree to others to use him in the group. Chat data, so two points together, we are not going to make a problem like Facebook's "privacy door." Xiao Yan: Many big manufacturers are also doing artificial intelligence. The more famous one is Microsoft Xiao Bing. If they open a department in the blockchain field, will it bring a fatal blow to Jarvis+?
Algorithms, computational power, and data are the three elements of AI in our usual sense.
In the entire AI field, whether it is Google's algorithm or Microsoft, it is open from the algorithm level, and the source code can be seen. Then there is the computing power, like the ASIC-specific mining machine for Bitcoin, and the NPU for deep learning, which everyone can buy. Where is the core? In the data.
It's hard to imagine that Google will share the data in the vertical field with you one day. It's hard to imagine that one day Microsoft will share the data accumulated by Xiao Bing for ten years. So data is a very core competency for evaluating an AI startup.
The entire data of Jarvis+ is based on short text. What is short text? Some web pages or some papers or articles that you can read are called long texts in the nlp field. WeChat sent every day, some information seen in the telegraph group, all of which are short texts.
Jarvis+ is rooted in short texts and is rooted in multiple rounds of dialogue. What is multi-round dialogue? For example, in a group of more than 500 people in the WeChat group to chat, this is a multi-round dialogue, maybe we have seven or eight people talking about four or five topics, and some topics are caught in other topics, this is a very typical essay This multi-round dialogue.
Jarvis+'s AI capabilities in short texts are currently not found by competitors. Other AI products are more mature than long texts, and everyone is also moving to short texts, but short texts must be of commercial value.
Traditional big companies are a cost center in group chat or in customer service. Its value and blockchain are not the same, so one of the most important values in the blockchain industry is the data of the blockchain project. More valuable. Our moat is actually derived from the value of our accumulated and in-depth analysis of vertical industry data.
Our core competitive advantage or barrier is: First, we are now serving so many groups and collecting so many group chat data. Second, we have a partner template program where a large number of partners use our Jarvis+ services and tools to serve their customers in their existing business. Xiao Yan: You mentioned that Jarvis+'s Bot can help protect the privacy of group chat data. Since the text of the group chat is public, is it necessary to say to protect privacy?
This involves two concepts. The first concept is why data produces value. The second concept of how value generators can share value.
I will break down from the first question. We may have billions of social data per day, especially group chat data. Social data or group chat data is worthless in terms of quantity alone, and it can only help a specific group of people to generate value in a specific field.
For example, if we have three or five people talking about where to travel, such a group chat topic has no value. But if we talk about the travel scene on the travel website, it can give the user value. For example, it can more accurately locate lines, schedule time, recommend hotels and attractions.
The second problem, after the Jarvis+2.0 social data is uplinked, it will do some corresponding processing. Based on the IPFS storage and blockchain confirmation, the data can be normalized to the data producer. As long as the subject of the community economy generates value, Jarvis+'s Bot can easily share its value with the data provider. Xiao Yan: What is the current progress of Jarvis+ that everyone cares about? What is the follow-up progress?
Jarvis+ began developing prototype products in October 2017. At the end of January 2018, the prototype product was completed. The project was launched in March 2018 and the 1.0 phase was completed in February 2019.
The 1.0 phase is mainly to serve the community, from draining growth, gamification to the realization of service products, covering the three elements of the community's complete ecology. We have a lot of customers in the blockchain industry, including NEO, than the original chain. We started to serve some traditional Internet giants earlier this year. They saw that the social economy is the future and has been transferred from vertical mobile applications such as APP. Go to the social economy.
In May of this year, we officially released the 2.0Bot data-spinning protocol, and some of the code has been submitted to GitHub. Xiao Yan: What do you think about the white paper published by Facebook. What do you think is the important impact on the blockchain?
In fact, the news of Facebook's currency has been around for a long time. It is not new from the industry's point of view, but because of Facebook's influence and user volume, I think his plan will be very sensational and cause its stock price to be recently. Two or three days have been raised a lot. Its volume is 4,000 billion dollars, which is bigger than today's BTC, indicating that the market is still very much looking forward to.
I think Facebook is a very important landing case in open finance. What is open finance? You don't care about him, he will have value when he lives. Facebook has pushed the entire blockchain ecosystem to a more important node.
After Facebook has issued the currency, it is possible to set off a prelude to a big factory issuing tokens. The big factory issuing token will definitely be sent in a league chain such as Facebook or a private chain. Friends of the old chain must think that the public chain can send tokens, the alliance chain can not send tokens, but today's facts tell us that there is nothing impossible in open finance, and the alliance chain can also issue coins. Xiao Yan: Do you think that if Facebook's currency is issued, may it directly affect the status of BTC?
No, I think it is not a competitive relationship with BTC. BTC can be understood as digital gold, which is a thing that stores value. Facebook's Libra is a payment tool that relies on a basket of low-risk targets to support its stability, and is really stable because it has such a large volume.
Xiao Yan: Libra issued by Facebook has a main body. It is easy to control or supervise it. Do you think that supervision will be a serious problem for Libra?
I think that because there is Facebook, I will definitely come to the regulatory meeting, but I think that only by supervision, an industry can do a big job.
Everyone may know that in the early days of the Internet, supervision was also very inadequate. It was a mess, but it was difficult to achieve a large scale without supervising an industry. After the regulation is completed, it will lead to a lot of discussions. These discussions and supervision will produce a chemical reaction and promote some very good innovative mechanisms. Therefore, regulation and innovation have always been a process of mutual compromise, but the final result is that the compromise of regulation and innovation represents the maturity of an industry.
And here I would like to add that if Facebook has billions of people working on it, what opportunities does it bring?
Just like ours, we need some tools to empower.
If we don't have a car, maybe our life is in the range of five or six kilometers in the place of residence; if we have a bicycle, your daily life may be more than ten kilometers; if we have a car, maybe your daily life The range will be twenty or thirty kilometers.
Facebook currency will bring huge changes to massive community operations and management, and you can go out without tools. Because your ability is very limited, your hand is also very limited, whether it is touch or typing, your speed, your understanding is very limited, even your sleep, your language is very limited, then what should I do? In fact, community robots like Jarvis+ are needed to set some strategies to help you discover value and capture value. Xiao Yan: The audience may be more interested in what Jarvis+ looks like in the second half of this year.
In fact, this year Jarvis+ mainly has to do two things:
The first thing, the ecological promotion of 1.0, we will expand our business based on the telegraph, WhatsApp, Facebook ecosystem in some token projects and some traditional enterprises. We will make our products, API services and templates for better vertical business scenarios, and our partners to grow bigger and stronger.
The second thing, we will put the 2.0 ecological infrastructure, including the Bot data on the chain, the data mart to lay the foundation, so we will focus on the 2.0 code in the second half of the year.
