Highlight of the fortnight unveils interoperability vision with new virtual machine

We are pleased to announce a major interoperability upgrade, allowing our technology to be delivered across multiple blockchain platforms ?

Version 2.0 of the mainnet will be interoperable with the Cosmos Hub and other chains such as Ethereum via Cosmos’ IBC bridge.

社区新闻 reveals new autonomous supply chain demo

Our latest use case showcases autonomous supply chains using agents.

We’ve collaborated with the Institute for Manufacturing and the Distributed Information and Automation Laboratory research group at Cambridge University, Pitch-In IoT, Alexandra Brintrup and Liming Xu to show how wholesalers can monitor storage conditions in real-time ??

On Tuesday, Alexandra gave a presentation at the Connected Everything online conference, in which she discussed how’s technology can introduce the benefits of decentralized multi-agent systems to enhance the freight industry.


Welcome to Agentland

We’re introducing a new test network for autonomous agents called Agentland ?

This is a key step in enabling agents to interact with applications across all blockchains and ledgers. You can find out more about how to build your own agent in this new world by reading our how-to-guide.

Version 0.5.1 and 0.5.2 of the Agent Framework launched

These updates have included a bunch of features, including a redesigned GUI and the transition of our demos to the new Agentland test network.

To find out what else has been improved, please read the release notes in Github.

Our population of autonomous agents is growing all of the time and we are pleased to announce that over the last fortnight we have surpassed 100,000 agents operating on the network ?

Collective learning framework launched to enable decentralized machine learning applications

We discussed the huge advantages of our collective learning framework in this article and the difference it can make in industries such as healthcare.

Our head of research Jonathan Ward has also published two blog posts outlining the power of collective learning. In the first he explains how society can benefit from the knowledge harnessed from large data sets — without giving away access to citizens’ private data.

In the second, Jonathan shares the details of how collective learning techniques will enable industries to achieve enormous improvements in efficiency without needing to rely on “Big Tech”.
