Proposal Description

Company Name (if applicable)

Trenches AI

How our project will contribute to the growth of the decentralized AI platform

This project will contribute to the growth of the SingularityNET AI platform by providing a practical, step-by-step "Hello-World" application that simplifies the deployment and integration of AI procucts. By offering comprehensive docs, tutorial videos, and example code, it lowers the entry barrier for new developers, and actively helps community members in need of such resource to complete their projects.

The core problem we are aiming to solve

The core problem this RFP aims to solve is the high entry barrier for new developers, and developers currently building products on the SingularityNET AI Marketplace including myself. Many developers face challenges in understanding and navigating the complexities of deploying and integrating AI models from the marketplace into their applications. This often results in a steep learning curve, discouraging potential users and slowing down the adoption of the platform. By creating a "Hello-World" application along with detailed documentation, tutorial videos, and example code, this project seeks to demystify the process, making it more accessible and user-friendly. This will enable developers to quickly and effectively utilize the AI models available, fostering greater engagement and innovation within the SingularityNET community. Ultimately, this initiative aims to enhance the overall user experience, drive broader adoption, and contribute to the growth and success of the SingularityNET ecosystem.

Our specific solution to this problem

Objective
Develop a detailed RFP (Request For Proposal) for creating a "Hello-World" application resource for the SingularityNET AI Marketplace.

Scope of Work


1. Stakeholder Engagement and Needs Assessment
This is where majority of the value in this RFP will come from, because it involves collaborating with awarded team members to jointly figure out the best approach to guarantee value for themselves and future awarded members.

  • Conduct Surveys and Interviews: Engage with active community members and stakeholders through surveys and interviews to gather insights.
  • Identify Common Challenges: Determine the typical obstacles and specific needs developers face when deploying AI services on the SingularityNET platform.
  • Compile Feedback: Analyze the collected feedback to establish benchmarks and deliverables that align with the community's needs.

2. Hello-World Application RFP Specifications
This will be created based on the results and information now available from the Stakeholder Engagement and Needs Assessment.

  • Design an Illustrative Application: Design a simple, example application that demonstrates the deployment and integration of AI services from the marketplace.
  • Include Various Scenarios: Ensure the application creation tutorial resource deliverables, cover a range of problems often encountered by awarded team members, such as usage of SDKs, implementing the AGIX fees and payment for services, and other common errors encountered.

The competition and our USPs

Yes

Describe how your solution distinguishes itself from other solutions (if exist) and how it will succeed in the market.

Various solutions to this problem have been proposed by the community in various funding rounds, but the projects themselves have been held back by the deployment and integration issues the RFP proposes to solve. That is why a Hello-World approach to the problem will close the gaps and concentrate on the foundational problem which is deployment and integration of the AI Service.

Our team

The teams main strengths will be that it is made up of previously awarded and active community members, and those currently encountering the problem that will be solved.

View Team

What we still need besides budget?

Yes

Describe the resources you still need

2 previously Awarded or active Community members.

I believe the problem this RFP aims to solve, affects a considerable number of community members, so it should be addressed as a community problem, and solved by as many members as possible. For this to happen we will need the help of at least 1 previously awarded community member who has encountered said problems and someone from the SingularityNET developer team. This would be funded roles included in this proposal cost.

    Hello team, I have a few suggestions to make the project more refined.Although the milestones are clearly and thoroughly outlined, I believe some improvements are necessary to ensure effectiveness and success. I think it would be beneficial to include a risk management section to identify potential risks and propose mitigation strategies. Additionally, defining specific success criteria to measure the effectiveness of each milestone is essential. [Also hope that you could provide us with some feedback on the proposal to help us improve it further. Thank you very much. https://deepfunding.ai/proposal/play-quizz-explore-singularity-ecosystem/]

    Increased team reputation and transparency

    I understand the details in the presentation of the 6 milestones. If it were tied to the time of year or quantified by month, that would be awesome. Hope the author pays attention to this opinion.
    The team has presented excellently from overview, description to solutions in a quite comprehensive and easy to understand way - it is convenient for people to read it and be able to understand it.
    The budget is distributed quite evenly, only milestone number 2 is outstanding with $6,000. This is understandable because Survey and Interview work is more expensive.
    Another wish I have is to know the names, backgrounds of all members, their professional experience, strengths and weaknesses to increase transparency.
