  How do you identify fake dubs and fake accounts? (Other Projects) There's a common theme purported by science fiction that A.I. will eventually spin out of control, becoming more powerful than any structure created by humans. By creating financial ecosystems where strong, communal A.I. are resistant to attacks by smaller, adversarial A.I., leading blockchain researchers are building communities where honest nodes are incentivized to work together to overpower the bad ones. OpenMined are the leaders in distributing A.I. over multiple nodes, while keeping everyone's submitted data private to only the submittor. However, it is unclear whether their approach can incentivize a financial network where people are motivated to act honestly through financial rewards. https://www.openmined.org/ What OpenMined lacks in financial incentives, Truebit makes up for. Truebit wants to scale computations on the Ethereum blockchain by creating markets where people are paid for submitting and analyzing data honestly. https://truebit.io/ uPort is creating an identity system that could act as a transferable proof-of-individual system (accounts can be bought and sold). However, it is still easy to generate bots and fake accounts within the static biometrics collected by uPort. https://www.uport.me/ Project Oblio is like OpenMined in that it distributes machine learning processes over multiple nodes, and has plans to implement advanced encryption techniques post-Distribution. It's also like Truebit in that it creates financial incentives at various steps in the process for honest submittal and approval of data. And it's a simplified version of uPort, in which users can have identifiable accounts if they choose to. It's also the pioneers of Dubs - decentralized, uniqueness-detecting biometrics.
