NBAI @ The Consensus
As one of the few participants from Canada, Nebula AI’s founder Charles Cao attended the conference.
Nebula AI, or NBAI for short, founded in 2017, is a AI blockchain platform that converts GPU computing power into AI computing power. NBAI is also launching QUANT AI, emotion analysis, gene sequencing and many other AI applications.
The existing AI cloud computing platform has many challenges such as high hardware cost, high operation and maintenance cost, complicated user use, high application cost, and unsecured data privacy.
NBAI founder Charles Cao was one of the founders of the Montreal Chinese IT Community. He obtained his master degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering at Concordia University, and has worked within the core development team at IBM, SAP, Autodesk and Expedia, among other fortune 500 companies.
During the conference, the Nebula AI team had in-depth exchanges with many blockchain and digital currency experts from all over the world.
Moreover, Nebula AI agreed to cooperate with NULS, a project that aims to build a customizable universal public blockchain infrastructure.
It is expected that soon, both teams will be carrying out in-depth cooperation in cross-chaining and ledgering.
UPDATE JUNE 8th:
Nebula AI and NULS are continuing to explore the possibilities of collaboration. A crosschain of NBAI and NULS technologies would allow NULS users to access AI computing capacities. Nebula-AI started testing of NULS nodes.
