If you are looking for self-hosted and sovereign AI tools - you've come to the right place.

If you want a sovereign future in the digital age, this is where we will build it. This is AI Unchained.

    AI_024 - CASCDR

    "We're basically at a fork in the road. I think that there's a good chance we go the wrong way and you end up with a situation like China.

    We need to build these tools that serve Liberty and not tyranny. And we need to design these systems correctly. And then on top of that, I think, as I pointed out earlier, you know, we have an opportunity to build a better product than the tyrannical systems, you know, now before, before you're in too deep. So we need to do that so that people aren't, aren't lured by that."



    Are we steering towards a future where technology amplifies human potential, or are we drifting into a realm where control overshadows creativity? We are joined by the creator of CASCDR today to delve into a discussion that explores the role of Ai in our future and how we can utilize it to decentralize markets, service provision, and change the structure of productivity in a way that can bring it far closer to us and our needs. What does that future look like, and how do we build to get there?

    "The reason why it is so difficult for existing firms to capitalize on disruptive innovations is that their processes and their business model that make them good at the existing business actually make them bad at competing for the disruption."

    Ai Read_006 - How (Actually) Open AI Wins

    Ai Read_006 - How (Actually) Open AI Wins

    "As I see it, humanity is at a turning point where we must either embrace a small handful of totalitarian super intelligences or move AI to the edge, allowing a wide diversity of machine intelligences to flourish in cooperation with an equally diverse set of human intelligences, forming a truly decentralized hivemind. Fortunately, there’s mounting evidence that open source models will be the ultimate winners."

    ~Hivemind Ventures



    Our read from HiveMind Ventures today argues that the future of AI development hinges on embracing open-source models and decentralization to counteract the monopolistic tendencies of large corporations and governments. What if we already have the tools and foundations to create a genuine decentralized hivemind of human and artificial intelligences that change how we organize and progress. What if these tools are right under our nose, today? Would you want to know what they are?
