    Technical Progress in AI

    The technical updates over the past few weeks mainly center around three aspects: AI chips, data and algorithm.

    1.In terms AI chip: Performed the Cortex consensus algorithm minimum compatibility test on the CPU and GPU single architecture, and purchased five different computing platforms/architectures.

    2.In terms of data: Built a 320T data warehouse, further progressed in the collection of open source datasets, further researched 2D data enhancement on 3D data, and purchased more than three types of industrial cameras.

    3.In terms of algorithm: researched and reproduced the leading edge algorithms (Glow, paGAN, StarGAN).

    Technical Progress in Blockchain

    1.Studied the development and integration of PoW algorithms. Among the many versions of Cuckoo Cycle, selected the Memory Bound algorithm, integrated CPU miner on full nodes.

    2.Tested smart contracts of the built-in AI instruction set on the Cortex testnet. Implemented monitoring module in full nodes and blockchain browsers for trading activities relating to tokens.

    3.Conducted more in-depth analysis and monitoring on internal transactions on full nodes, and provided API query interface.

    4.Integrated the underlying storage solution based on the Torrent protocol, designed and developed the access control, flow control and economic system of the storage layer.
