Ontology Blockchain Project And Ubitus GPU-as-a-Service (GaaS) To Reinforce AI Role In Gaming
Provider of new high performance public blockchain project and distributed trust collaboration platform, Ontology, has struck a strategic deal with NE Asian biggest gaming-as-a-service provider and global leading virtualization and cloud gaming platform, Ubitus, to build an even more powerful AI for the gaming industry.
Ubitus who currently utilizes virtualized GPU facility and cloud technology to stream game content recently deployed Assassin's Creed Odyssey for the Nintendo Switch. The great news now is that the gaming company is striking a strategic partnership with Ontology blockchain in order to develop an AI system.
Ontology will be supplying a strategic leverage for Ubitus, making the partnership an all-encompassing one for highly ranked Ontology following its ‘high-performance underlying architecture.’
The idea is to make available a broad blockchain technology that provides support for Ubitus in the area of smart contracts, data identity, and data exchange. Both parties will partner with a view to building a practicable decentralized AI computing network that will lend great support to the gaming industry, thus ensuring cross-chain development.
Ontology made the announcement that it has begun a link-up at the application level with the high-flying company, expanding the scope of the aggressive inroad and deployment of leading technologies including AI, machine learning, blockchain, and cloud gaming into a number of industries in the world.
What Has AI Done In Industries?
Today’s announcement indicates that the gaming industry will begin to experience the new innovation in a number of areas, such as allowing players to race with actually challenging non-player characters.
Also, the introduction of AI into the gaming industry will create new technology which can be deployed to other industries. In fact, the announcement refers to the usefulness of the new innovation in industries such as medical technology and unmanned vehicles.
The world is exposed to areas where AI technology can be useful shortly after a number of mind-boggling breakthroughs that the technology achieved in some experimentation carried out in certain industries.
In fact, the successes recorded by AlphaGo which beat a world champion of the game Go, as well as that of the machine learning technology in open-source DeepMind, is no small feat to the scientific community.
So, the trend has moved from the traditional industries to the gaming industry, making the industry and AI, important partners in the growth of modern science and technology. There’s no doubt that the integration of AI into gaming will not only deepen the deployment of these modern technologies, but also decentralize game industry.
This will go a long way to break the technical barriers which limit creativity and innovation in the industry, and thus expand the use of professional talent and resources.
With its existing technological strides, Ubitus sets to combine experience with technology, bringing UbiDocker, its self-built virtualization technology face-to-face with a distributed AI ecosystem.
In this system, Ubitus-developed SDKs and APIs which currently gives needed assistance to the game application developers to introduce machine learning, deep learning, and other AI applications to ensure smoother experience and app development.
What Will The Partnership Do?
The developmental partnership with Ontology will give Ubitus biting teeth to leverage on the former’s high-performance architecture to utilize blockchain, smart contracts, and other technologies.
This will help tremendously in saving a lot of cost in AI development while ensuring that all users in the ecosystem distribute established AI models and large training databases. Thus, partners in the game industry are empowered with great convenience and potential to excel in the industry.
Additionally, the partnership gives a template for both partners to execute high-level in-depth collaborative work in promoting product and technology, sharing information, building ecosystem, and in community participation and development. In this light, the entire Ontology ecosystem reaps the benefit of gaining so much cloud game contents and developers as provided by Ubutis.
What Does Ubitus Say About The Partnership?
Wesley Kuo, Chairman, Ubitus has hailed the import and potential impact of the strategic cooperation of his company with Ontology.
Kuo insists that the partnership is coming at the time when the projections and predictions of players and partners in the game industry are looking at bringing game closer to AI.
In his submission, the Ontology-Ubitus cooperation is apt and timely, and one that will deliver huge dividends for his company.
“The next trend in the game industry is AI, blockchain, and cloud gaming. The high-profile entry of Google and Microsoft into the cloud game industry shows that the market will become more and more prosperous and there will be more AAA-level games that will release games and cloud games simultaneously.
“Ubitus not only provides a cloud gaming service platform for game developers with years of industry experience, but has also set up a dedicated blockchain department to explore possible business opportunities.”
“We look forward to making full use of Ontology’s distributed trust technology and build a decentralized AI computing power ecosystem with our cooperation, eliminating industry barriers so that the game industry can embrace more good ideas which will bring a better game content and gaming experience to players”.
Also, Andy Ji, Ontology’s Chief Strategy Officer, is of the opinion that the cooperation between Ontology and Ubitus creates a sort of synergy that brings experience and technology together and forms a merger which creates a perfect relationship for both parties.
“In recent years, blockchain, AI, and other technologies have been the focus of attention. This cooperation combines Ontology’s underlying public chain technology, smart contract, digital identity, and data exchange with Ubitus’ rich experience in AI computing power, which will bring new blood into game application and development. We look forward to building the industry’s future with Ubitus”.
It is hoped that with AI making a huge inroad into the game industry the future is there for Ubitus, the world’s best commercial cloud gaming platform. An AI-powered game industry promises to bring about a decentralized ecosystem where more players participate, thus increasing competition and opening up the space for more investors and participants.
