For the past 6 months, I’ve been working on a fascinating and exciting new project. I’ve dipped more than my toes into the digital currency world, I’ve dived in and started swimming around. We just launched a digital currency initiative called SEED intending to build a token and network to democratize bots and CUIs (conversational user interfaces). I truly believe that CUIs will do for computer what GUIs did to the command line interface: tons more users, uses, and services. I also think that we’re at a critical time when interfaces to AI-related technologies may fall firmly in the exclusive grasp of a few multinationals that have the resources to dominate, own, and effectively regulate this important technology.
