What is Cognitio? Cognitio is a coin combining three consensus models: PoW, PoS, and Masternodes. In an attempt to put big-data on theShow more [+] blockchain, and utilizing 'privileged' nodes to compute and shift large amounts of data, with the end goal of providing infrastructure for unstoppable on-chain machine learning.
Quote from the Preliminary report:
As may be evident from our choice of epigraphs, Cognitio’s primary aim is to create a vessel suitable for exploring machine intelligence regardless of which paradigm - or hybrid of paradigms - the user chooses. To this end, the main thrust of our current research is on what we are tentatively calling the Nous - from the gnostic word for man’s intellect - the fundamental layer of technology which participants in the Cognitio network will use to model agents. We are aiming to create a runtime which has a number of remarkable qualities:
• An absolute minimum of ‘locked-in’ runtime semantics, enabling the creation of truly evolutionary and adaptive computing primitives.
• Compatibility with the wealth of existing high-performance C and C++ libraries, making it simpler to add powerful expertise to agents on the network.
• First-class distributed computation primitives such as closures and continuations.
• Tools for formal verification of workloads, to better approximate the computational value of a unit of work.
• Strong security measures to allow the implementation of decentralized trust and reputation protocols
