Hi Justin Harris! I hope you are doing well!

This is a great project, I do like open-source project and decentralizing Artificial Intelligence.

I just try to understand where you should be rewarded for your contribution, on a open-source project... Not sure to get the natural sense here.

Also, Are we going to share all common public gods? What is open-source? Centralized authority controlling models to be free and you want to get rewarded for what, Because you did post it on GitHub?

Hum, not sure about this project. Your idea are, great, I can say, but the overall scoop is to be re-designed, clearly.

How can you have an open-source project (Open-source = Free to use and Open or an Open source), while being paid to get it running or just post it on GitHub, while keeping public gods free, lol... Well...

Thanks for the questions. People get rewarded for data contributions to the machine learning model, not for open source code. You can see the simple explanation here that outlines the key points for a few incentive mechanisms: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/blog/leveraging-blockchain-to-make-machine-learning-models-more-accessible/

The code for the project (machine learning algorithms, smart contracts, and dashboard to view it all) is open source.
