    Similar to other projects you have no information about your team. Is this $100,000 ask based on a one person team?  Also why do you propose only two milestones. Do you think the community expects you to develop a project without some funds during the process? Understanding this is in the early proposal stage I expect to revisit and then do rating when you have a cahnce to answer these basic questions. Thank you and good luck in the process.

      Thank you for reviewing and commenting. Envisioned as a largely volunteer open source effort by design the intent is for resources and knowledge to connect all the pieces together, so ultimately, I think that budget can go down considerably. I would point out that my interest is in getting that seed sprouted and so maybe this isn't the right forum for that but the fact that it's even gotten attention and you've read it says something important to me about viability.

        I would strongly suggest that the pool or rather the $ ask is not for "sprouting seed". The Ideation Pool may be a better one for gaining some community traction, interest and in your effort to sprout. It does have a limit much lower than your ask but it gives room to Ideate and develop the concept.

    A Thoughtful Exploration with Room for Improvement

    As someone deeply interested in the potential of governance models for the Language Singularity ecosystem, I found the exploration and testing presented in this review to be quite insightful. The emphasis on decentralization, transparency, and community-driven approaches is commendable, reflecting a commitment to responsible AI development and deployment.

    However, there are areas where this review could benefit from further development. While the theoretical aspects are well-covered, practical implementation strategies and case studies would have added depth and applicability. Additionally, a more critical analysis of the potential challenges and drawbacks of each governance model would have provided a more balanced perspective.

    In conclusion, let this review serves as a solid starting point for understanding potential governance models for the Language Singularity ecosystem. With refinement and additional empirical evidence, it has the potential to evolve into a valuable resource for those navigating the complexities of AI governance.

    Uniqueness of the proposal

    Will fostering the ecosystem through linguistic singularity actually contribute to the development of AI? The biggest impact and also the unique point in my opinion is the empowerment so that everyone can participate in the AI revolution, thereby exploiting the inherent potential that has not been possible for a long time. If the author agrees with my point of view, he can consider analyzing the proposal and giving his opinion to find out the uniqueness of the proposal. This is a new proposal and has no overlap.

    Review 2 milestones, present more ethical values

    The 2 milestones are presented quite sketchily. My opinion is that it would be good if the team could add more time to complete each milestone.
    As for ethical values, more detailed attention is needed to increase the persuasiveness and humanity of the proposal. I agree and hope the proposal succeeds.

    Team information & implementation details

    At present, there is no specific information about the team members. I hope the information will soon be updated to improve the transparency of the proposal.
    With a $100,000 proposal, there needs to be a detailed list of more things that need to be done so that everyone can understand.
    These are my two constructive comments for this proposal.

    Proposed is still sketchy and lacks information

    The proposed information is not specific, the goals and problems are not clear, so they make readers feel very confused. The project implementation direction has not been developed in detail and the project team has not provided specific information about the members\' capabilities and capacities, leading to no guarantee of project implementation. The project needs to clearly provide solutions, core goals and specific options to solve them. A proposal is an abstract content, so clarity of content is needed to increase the feasibility of the proposal. In my personal opinion, this is a very sketchy proposal, not really built properly and completely. Therefore, I assess the feasibility of the project is not high.

    The project proposal is difficult to understand

    I actually feel quite vague about your project. Although your project idea is quite good. Although you have given a project proposal, I cannot understand your proposal. You have stated the problem you are trying to solve, I can understand that, but the solution you are aiming for is not specifically explained by you. What I need to know about your project is: What goal will your project aim for, what problem will it solve? You need to go deeper into the important milestones of the project. Also, in the "Long description of your project" section, you have a link, but when I click on it, your project doesn't appear and I think I can't see any of your projects. You have not really prepared carefully when submitting this project proposal. There is also another issue, which is your team, the people who will carry out this project. When I looked into your group, there was almost no information given? There's no team introduction or any other information, not even a profile photo. That makes me think, you're not really serious about what you're doing. I see that this project may not be feasible at all.
