Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the questions prospective partners and customers ask us when diving deeper into the world of Forward Edge-AI.

What is crowdsourcing?

Crowdsourcing is a sourcing model in which individuals or organizations obtain goods or services—including ideas, voting, micro-tasks, and finances—from a large, relatively open, and often rapidly evolving group of participants.

What is machine learning?

Machine learning is the study of computer algorithms that can automatically improve through experience and by using data. It is seen as a part of artificial intelligence.

What is blockchain?

A blockchain is a growing list of records, called blocks, linked together using cryptography. Each block contains a cryptographic hash of the previous block, a timestamp, and transaction data. The timestamp proves that the transaction data existed when the block was published to get into its hash. As blocks each contain information about the block previous to it, they form a chain, with each additional block reinforcing the ones before it. Therefore, blockchains are resistant to modification of their data because once recorded, the data in any given block cannot be altered retroactively without altering all subsequent blocks.

What is artificial intelligence?

This topic focuses on innovations in artificial intelligence (AI), which refers to intelligence exhibited by machines or software. AI is not a specific technology or technical method — it is a field of study aimed at achieving machine-based intelligence. Current AI technologies are targeted at specific problem sets. 

What is Raman Spectra?

Raman spectroscopy is a spectroscopic technique typically used to determine vibrational modes of molecules. Rotational and other low-frequency modes of systems may also be observed. Raman spectroscopy is commonly used in chemistry to provide a structural fingerprint by which molecules can be identified.

What is Gabriel™?

Gabriel™ the Robocall Blocker ™ uses swarm intelligence, AI, machine learning, natural language processing, encrypted blockchain database, and the power of 5G networks to stop unwanted calls, on all devices, across all service providers.

What is Blaise™?

Blaise™ is a 5G handheld device capable of scanning solids, liquids, or vapor to detect pathogens and harmful chemicals. A Raman-IoT device built on an Android Tactical Assault Kit (ATAK) platform, Blaise™ can scan for harmful chemicals in 10 seconds at the cost of less than one cent per scan. Blaise™ crowdsources intelligence and rewards users in cryptocurrency for real-time Raman spectra updates to our Federated Learning Marketplace.

What is Dionysius™?

Dionysius™ is a Rosetta Stone to decipher misinformation, disinformation, and mal-information. An open-source Knowledge Graph, Dionysius™ includes sociographic and ethnographic segmentations and psycholinguistics. Dionysius™ awards points redeemable for Crypto to users who amplify programmatic ads containing truthful information (positive or negative) about vaccines and healthcare.
