What is SEED?

SEED is an independent, decentralized marketplace for developers and deployers of conversational user interfaces (CUIs). Our platform provides development tools, intellectual property, and network for deploying front-ends to AI technologies. Blockchain enables us to authenticate CUIs and compensate developers for their creations and contributions.

SEED democratizes AI by offering an open and independent alternative to the monopolies of the few large corporations that currently control CUI and AI technologies, exceeding the proprietary deployments from industry giants.

The SEED token and network are designed to create a thriving economy of conversational interfaces while enabling users to control their personal data. The SEED Token is uniquely designed to support authentication, smart contracts, payments, and ratings in order to reward quality, positive actors in the SEED economy and guard against negative ones.

SPROUT: the seed blockchain demo

We are pleased to share Sprout, a simple chatbot that demonstrates the functionality of the SEED platform, token and blockchain. This is an important milestone in the development of the Seed Token Project, and points to a future economy that promises greater transparency and a conversational user interface (CUI) marketplace that will compensate all participants more fairly.

Click here to see how Sprout writes to the blockchain. You can also ask questions about the SEED Token Project and sign up for our newsletter while you're there.

Note: SEED Bot never writes personal information to the blockchain; it uses it as a ledger to record license activity as a proof of concept.

ACTR: connecting avatars to speech

Introducing ACTR, a 3D presentation standard for avatars. It is a method of generating real-time avatar animation from natural language generation processing (NLP).

As part of our deep partnership with Botanic, Botanic is open-sourcing its bot toolkit to supercharge the creation of an industry standard and power a more fair and trusted bot economy.

This is an example of the free and open source tools that will make SEED the world's largest and most trusted app store for bots on the blockchain.

Learn more about ACTR here, or dive straight into our sneak preview of ACTR on GitHub.
