Leo Liang, GNY's Head of Blockchain, has a strong pedigree in machine learning and blockchain development. He hails from China where AI and Machine learning are already very popular. This popularity is seen especially amongst large companies who have access to massive quantities of data, which shrewdly they seek to turn to their advantage.
Leo's focus since joining GNY is to build the first decentralised machine learning platform on the blockchain, and a blockchain application platform. This development is progressing well. Leo and the team have already issued a demo of how machine learning and blockchain work together. They will integrate four new machine learning algorithms before the year is out, including fraud prediction and keyword prediction models.
James: Congratulations on getting published, Leo. Seeing as the initial print run of your book is in Mandarin, I wonder could you supply us with a brief synopsis of what it covers?
James: How long was the book in development?
Leo: I started to write it in January 2018 and finished that December.
James: How do you feel about writing books in comparison to developing blockchain projects?
Leo: This is my first book. I was always coding in the past few years, so writing a book is a chance for me to summarize my experience and the lessons learned.
James: Will there be a chance we will see an English language translation of the book at some point in the future?
Leo: I hope so.
James: I certainly hope so too. Before I let you go I would like to ask if you can reveal anything about the proposed side chain development/Cross chain functionality phase of the GNY project?
Leo: There is no project combining blockchain and machine learning like GNY, so I think we can bring about some real changes here. We will start to develop sidechain functionality for GNY from 2020 onwards. Our aim is that when you are building a sidechain, you can call on the machine learning algorithms from the main chain without implementing them by yourself. The cross chain functionality will introduce the mainstream tokens to GNY so everyone can utilize GNY to transfer and to build new chains. We at GNY want to help not only companies, but also developers to gain data, train data, and use AI in their business.
