Human language has evolved drastically over the past centuries, and another revolution is about to take place – verbal AI research. Askabl is the company at the center of it all as it seeks to use the blockchain technology to transform the way we search for content online – through verbal communication with our PCs.
What Is Askabl?
It’s a German-based AI startup that seeks to use the blockchain technology to develop a search engine that provides accurate answers to verbal questions in record time.
It’s a natural language processing software with endless possibilities. It can act as your personal assistant on your mobile smartphone or PC. It can also be used for a wide range of research ranging from scientific work, infomercials, robotics to journalistic work.
Askabl can literally answer any question you have, and it’s not limited to one type of data source or platform. Currently, askabl gets it knowledge from the largest trustworthy textual database there is – the English Wikipedia.
With time, askabl seeks to expand its knowledge base to the whole of the internet.
How Askabl Will Use AI Digital Assistant For Search Queries
The internet, unlike Wikipedia, contains information that is subject to debate regarding its accuracy and authenticity. For askabl to be reliable, it has to figure out a way to verify the information on the internet. The verification can be done through a couple of ways as follows:
- Limit askabl to websites commonly known to be reliable and trustworthy.
- Limit it to information that can be verified against Wikipedia’s knowledge base.
- Create a user-base that tags information that is proven as correct.
- Use the information that can be inferred to be true in line with previous knowledge collected.
However, for the above methods to be effective askabl still requires a method of journaling the new information against its knowledge base to determine their validity; this is where the blockchain technology comes in. The cryptographic nature of the blockchain will enable it to act as a journal of information where one piece of information is dependent on another to be validated.
Additionally, the blockchain will increase transparency in gathering information by opening the process up for anyone and allowing for verification of the information by different parties. Moreover, miners will be rewarded for proofreading new information and validating it through soon to be introduced tokens known as QUEST.
