By 2025 the global data sphere will grow to 163 Zettabytes
The current computational paradigm is not scalable or intelligent enough to handle this massive influx of information.
Nuances will redefine data and applications altogether.
Thought’s technology infuses every bit of data with AI to create the Nuance. Each Nuance becomes its own agent with the power to take action without the constraints of an application. Nuances completely change the landscape of big data, system integration and artificial intelligence as we know it.
Thought’s revolutionary blockchain fabric enables AI
Thought Fabric is a new, better technology stack. Nuances exist within an infinitely scaleable network that allows each individual bit of artificial intelligence to interact forming an intelligent system. Blockchain technology ensures that every nuance is secure and attributable.
Thought creates a new, universal intelligence technology
Thought Nuances working within Fabric exist as electronic neurons within a globally distributed brain. Systems that were once incompatible become integrated. Disparate processes and infrastructure become unified, all within a technology platform that’s secure, scalable and natively extensible.
1 ETH = ~3000 THT
Accepting ETH Only. Softcap $10MM, Hardcap $50MM.
Thought tokens are required to run Nuances on the Thought Fabric. Tokens are earned by owners of Fabric nodes in exchange for the evaluation and routing of Nuances. Tokens will also be awarded for hardware integration development, AI model development and access to data repositories.
