Project Aiur ICO Short Review
Current problems faced by the scientific community and the users of scientific content today include: (1) information overload; (2) access barriers; (3) reproducibility issues; (4) built-in biases; and, (5) incentive misalignment. Project Aiur will democratize science, disrupt research system incentives, and make scientific content accessible to all.They will initiate a decentralized community of researchers, coders and AI trainers using the blockchain. Together they will build a machine where a research article can be checked up against all other research in the world. This allows them to build a massive collection of knowledge that is validated and reproducible. Everyone who is a member will own the project, can earn AIUR tokens, can use the tools they build together, and can vote in important decisions. Creating an economy with well aligned incentives will enable the uprooting of an industry which today is hindering scientific progress.
