Artificial intelligence (AI), large language models (LLM), and machine learning have permeated every aspect of our technology-related lives. Tools like ChatGPT offer a range of useful utilities, but they also have a potentially dark side, as ChatGPT and other LLM chatbots have been known to occasionally spit out information that is actually incorrect, potentially biased, and potentially harmful.
Artificial intelligence is just the latest example of the importance of information verification capabilities. Verifiability of complex systems such as supply chains has always been important, and has long been considered an area where blockchain technology and decentralization can bring real-world benefits.
One project seeking to realize this potential is OriginTrail, a multi-chain protocol that builds what it describes as the first decentralized knowledge graph — a graph that helps establish and verify relationships between various data points. data layer.
in episode 14 agenda In the podcast, hosts Jonathan DeYoung and Ray Salmond chat with OriginTrail co-founders Žiga Drev and Tomaz Levak as they detail knowledge graphs, the importance of artificial intelligence and supply chain decentralization, and their experience working with enterprise clients etc.
“Trusted knowledge base”
According to the founders, OriginTrail is building a “credible knowledge base” that can help fight misinformation, whether it’s about artificial intelligence hallucinations or fraud in the medical supply chain. To that end, it created the “Decentralized Knowledge Graph” (DKG), a decentralized version of the same relationship-discovering tool that Google uses to tailor search recommendations and Amazon uses to recommend products.
When asked why the knowledge graph needs to be decentralized, the founders believed that, by its very nature, centralized services consume user data and build knowledge, but users cannot obtain returns of equal value. Dreyfu told Agenda.
“We’re not benefiting from these technologies because we’re not participating in them.”
Levak and Drev say that with OriginTrail, users can create “intellectual assets” on DKG that they will be able to leverage and extract value from, much like tokens are leveraged today in decentralized finance.

The founders also believe that having a trusted knowledge base will help users verify the validity of information generated by AI chatbots, allowing users to trace the source of their output statements, for example.

Drev said: “With decentralized AI, we actually give users the ability to verify from which source the answer was pulled. Or even if you use generative AI, you can still check what the information trace is and where this information came from. “
Bringing Blockchain into the Real World
A common criticism of the cryptocurrency space is that most projects exist only to solve problems created by other projects, and that there is little real-world demand for blockchain technology.A core objective is to agenda It’s about finding and exploring use cases that are impacting or have the potential to impact the world outside of crypto.
OriginTrail has worked with or been supported by a number of high profile enterprise clients including BSI, Walmart, Google, Oracle and many more. When asked how and why people should find value in blockchain tools for enterprise adoption and enabling information verification, Levak noted that different people will find use cases in different things.
“I think for some things it might make a difference who is closer,” he said. “For some, they might know about the field of pharma or medicine or sustainable medicine, or they might have a connection to the field of pharma or sustainable medicine. Some might be more about architecture, some might be about food.”

However, according to Levak, in today’s environment, the simplest real-world communication use cases revolve around artificial intelligence:
“Many people have been exposed to ChatGPT, but most of them will have two questions. A is “Will I lose my job?” ’ B was, ‘How can I trust this thing? “Then, it’s easy to expand on the importance of these types of technologies being present, because anyone can create a story around their job, their situation, a place that might help or hurt them.”
