FLock Partners with io.net to Leverage its Decentralized Compute for its Decentralized AI Training Platform


FLock.io and io.net share the mission of decentralizing all aspects of the AI tech stack, from compute through governance.

London, UK; April 17th, 2024

FLock.io, a community-driven platform facilitating the creation of on-chain, decentralized AI models, announces its partnership with io.net for powering FLock with decentralized compute. FLock and io.net are aligned in their aim to decentralize AI at all levels of the tech stack, addressing the risks inherent to centralized data storage and paving the way for a future in which AI can be leveraged to enhance human productivity.

Jiahao Sun, the founder and CEO of FLock.io, shared, “A future powered by AI is inevitable, but we’ve already experienced the repercussions of AI products that are centrally owned and operated. This is why we are committed to facilitating community-governed AI systems via our decentralized training models. As part of this overarching mission, we’re delighted to be fully decentralizing the GPUs powering the platform with our io.net partnership.”

Ahmad Shadid, CEO of io.net, added, “We believe that by combining io.net’s decentralized compute resources with FLock’s innovative platform, we are setting a new standard for privacy and efficiency in AI development. This partnership underscores our commitment to transforming the AI landscape by making powerful computing accessible and affordable.”

AI models are trained across the FLock network using federated learning, where models learn from decentralized data sources without moving the data itself. This allows for collaboration without the problem of centralized data collection and potential misuse. Decentralized hosting leverages idle computing power via io.net to make compute more accessible at 90% lower cost than traditional cloud providers.
