Overview

In response to the global demand for secure work tools and a healthier work-life balance, we're developing an AI-powered virtual workspace. Our product aims to revolutionize the future of work and enable the transition from traditional work models to the digital model. With remote work becoming the norm, the workspace would ensure secure online collaboration while promoting work-life balance in a decentralized platform. Our multi-layered approach tackles the problem of unauthorized data access through encryption, malware detection, and secure communication tools. We're driving a global shift towards a healthier, more secure work environment, undeterred by future disruptions.

Proposal Description

How Our Project Will Contribute To The Growth Of The Decentralized AI Platform

The project focuses on building a decentralised, democratic and beneficial AGI powered workspace solution. 

The key to driving growth is offering AI solutions that provide value to users. Our solution would add to the range of AI services offered on singularityNet to add value to its users and cater to a broader audience.

As our reach and customer base grows to become a household name, so does the visibility and publicity of the singularity platform. 

 

 

Our Team

I am the only member of my in house team.

I am an IT Professional with over 10 years domain experience, an Ex - Microsoft 4 afrika intern and an exceptional talent endorsed bybtech nations as an emerging leader in technology.

The project would initially be outsourced to an external development team with a depth of enterprise software development experiences.

AI services (New or Existing)

Hate Speech Detection

How it will be used

I would be integrating this AI service into my platform to enable the detection and flagging up of contents that violate our platform policy. We would analyze all text content in the platform to identify hate/abusive elements.

Company Name (if applicable)

Phoenix Waterfalls

The core problem we are aiming to solve

I am looking to solve the problem of unhealty work life balance as well as illegal and unauthorized access to 
sensitive personal and corporate information.

Work-life imbalance is a problem experienced by all modern-day employees(18 to 64). It affects a large majority of the global population as all adults in active employment. Sensitive personal and corporate Information could be accessed today by traffic/email interception, keypad logging, packet sniffing in the network, camera and microphone hacking and unauthorized storage device access(resulting in illegal retrieval of personal data such as pictures and 
other sensitive documents).
With the insurgence of the great resignation, where businesses struggle to retain talent and fill vacancies. Employees are demanding better work-life balance, well-being and flexibility from their employers. As a result, flexible and remote work is emerging as the new normal, reshaping the future of work for the foreseeable future. 

Our specific solution to this problem

Our overarching goal here is to equip the modern-day employee with the required tools to work securely in the virtual space and attain a healthy balance between their personal and professional lives by automating daily routines, supporting adequate time management, enabling flexible work among others, to improve the quality of human lives and create a better society for everyone. The solution would address the security gap in existing products and also give employers an integrated environment to manage their employees in all parts of the globe.
The existing security solutions are insufficient in combating sophisticated and evolving  cyber threats,
they are also complex to use, expensive, generate False positives and negatives, may not effcetively address insider threats, and are difficult to integrate with other systems.

Exsiting work life management procedures and tools as well are insufficient in adequately addressing the evolving needs of each individual. They do not adequately address individual differences or fit every organizational culture and are difficult to integrate into
workflow.

Our solution features a shift from the traditional work models to a new world of work. It would be decentralised in design, using a distributed architecture in this case a Microservice, leveraging the security benefits of Blockchain and Artificial intelligence in automation.

Project details

Our solutions focuses on bridging the existential security gaps in workspace solutions with the use of a decentralization, and artificial intelligence for work optimization. It would be built on a distributed architecture and  in this case, a microservice architecture.

The core difference in this submission is in the focus on security and/by decentralisation through the use of advanced security practices as well as blockchain technology.

Here, we go beyond creating a platform to support different work patterns as in the last submission, to addressing security threats in existing solutions such as highlighted above.

Unauthorised access to data on digital platforms is a problem that plagues all businesses today with the small businesses being more susceptible and disporportionately affected by these attacks as they usually lack the requisite resources and processes in place to put in the necessary defense. 
It can lead to the compromise of sensitive personal information, such as financial data, medical records, and personally identifiable information (PII) as well as security breaches, financial implications, reputational damages, National security risks, IP theft, identity theft fraud among others.

Currently existing security solutions include: Firewalls, intrusion detection systems, malwares and antiviruses,VPNS,We also have practices such as encryption, Multi factor authentication, Hashing, access controls among others.

The existing security solutions are insufficient in combating sophisticated and evolving  cyber threats,
they are also complex to use, expensive, generate False positives and negatives, may not effectively address insider threats, and are difficult to integrate with other systems.

To address the issue of illegal and unauthorized data access requires a multi-layered approach involving technological, organizational, and legal measures.

The virtual workspace would equip small businesses with a tool to address this issues from the tehcnological layer.
The solution would be equipped with sophisticated end-point security controls such as behavioral analytics,
machine learning and heuristics, inbuilt malware detection, reporting and prevention, encryption of data at rest and in transit using one way crtptographic functions among others.


The product would include secure communication tools with end-to-end encryption for audio/video communication to prevent unauthorized data access through the camera or microphones, encrypted communication facilities that prevents email interception, keypad logger detection and blockage, Packet sniffing detection and blockage and local storage access control.

 

Ethical Considerations

The following Ethical considerations were made regarding the project, from development down to deployment.

  • During the research and testing stage, we would extract data from the general public which would be used to inform product development. This would be done in alignment with all laws in our jurisdiction. There would be a consent form for the participants where they would be fully briefed on the nature of the research and how their data would be processed giving them the right to withdraw at any point in time. The company is also ICO registered. We would engage with stakeholders from all representative user groups for our research.
  • We would have a clear ethical framework to guide the entire development project.
  • We would be transparent about how the technology works and its limitations.
  • We would establish mechanisms for accountability, such as third-party audits and regular reviews by an ethics board.
  • We would Prioritize user consent and privacy protection.
  • We would Educate the public about the technology, its capabilities, and potential risks.
  • We would Foster discussions around the ethical implications of facial recognition and similar technologies
  • We would Implement robust data protection measures, such as anonymization, encryption, and data minimization.
  • We would Ensure compliance with relevant regulations and standards, such as GDPR, CCPA, and emerging legislation
  • We would Continuously monitor the societal impact of the technology and be prepared to make adjustments as needed.
  • We would Implement restrictions on the use of the technology to prevent misuse
  • We would Regularly review and update the ethical framework and guidelines based on feedback and new developments

 

Measures to prevent misuse and promote beneficial outcomes:

To prevent misuse and promote beneficial outcomes of the virtual workspace, the following measures would be implemented:

  • We would Implement robust user authentication mechanisms, such as two-factor authentication (2FA), to ensure that only authorized users can access the virtual workspace.
  • We would apply a range of methods such as end-to-end encryption to secure communication and data transfer within the virtual workspace.
  • We would Set up granular access controls to limit user permissions within the virtual workspace and define user roles and permissions to ensure that users only have access to the resources they need to perform their tasks.
  • We would Maintain detailed audit logs to track user activities within the virtual workspace. We would also Monitor user actions to detect any suspicious behavior or misuse of the platform.
  • We would Conduct regular security audits and penetration testing to identify and address any vulnerabilities in the virtual workspace application and Implement security patches and updates promptly to mitigate potential security risks.
  • We would Provide user training on best practices for using the virtual workspace securely and Educate users about the importance of safeguarding sensitive information and following security protocols.
  • We would Establish clear ethical guidelines and policies for the use of the virtual workspace and prohibit activities that could lead to misuse or harm, such as unauthorized access to data or harassment of other users.
  • We would Be transparent about data collection practices and how user data is used within the virtual workspace and Hold users and administrators accountable for their actions within the platform.   
  • We would Solicit feedback from users to identify areas for improvement and address any issues or concerns and Continuously iterate on the virtual workspace application to enhance security, usability, and overall user experience.

Competition and USPs

Having listened to the market over the years and consulted credible secondary sources an outcry against unhealthy work-life balance was indicated and an increase in unauthorised data access on digital platforms was observed.

Our solutions distinguishes itself as it focuses on meeting users at the point of their needs, catering for unaddressed lapses and security gaps in existing solutions.

The virtual workspace would succeed in the market by offering a comprehensive set of features, supporting a wide range of devices and operating systems, implementing robust security measures, offering exceptional customer support, strong marketing and partnerships, flexible pricing models and trainings.

    Hi there and welcome to your first DeepFunding proposal. Prior to me Reviewing and Rating your proposal I trust you will clear up some items. First are time frames of your milestones - I note the last is for 5 years of support past the previous milestone. There are no dates for the other milestones so exactly how long is your proposal for? I admitedly did not read too deep when I saw you do not plan on an Open Source project. Have you read the Principles of Snet and understanding the goal of Beneficial AI/AGI could you explain how your proposal meets these. Thanks.

      Hello there, thank you very much for the post. Please, I have just updated my milestones now, there should be more clarity on the duration. I am Looking to complete development within 5months and commence testing and commercialisation there after.  The project itself would take 12months at the most.  Regarding the principles of SNET, I've read through the portal severally and I've been in the community for quite sometime and do have an understanding of Singularity Net as a wholeand its values and its about building a more just and more compassionate society through AI. The three core focus areas from my understanding are decentralisation, democracy and beneficial AGI and this project does align well with it. This project seeks to use AI in a way that makes everyday work tasks easier for humans by automating daily work routines and supporting decision making as well as for developing the security component in the application. I wouldn’t be using AI except to enhance human life neither would I consider to use if it were not beneficial to humanity as a whole.  The solution would support decentralisation through the use of blockchain technology harnessing blockchain technology alongside AI to provide optimal security for its users. To support democracy, I’ve considered making it such that every decision is made by voting. Team members can propose ideas, and others can vote on them. The ideas with the most votes get implemented, fostering a democratic and collaborative work environment. Our first challenge with this would be that our solutions would be open to everyone and not all customers might want to to adopt that decision making model and all company’s already have a decision making process in place and developing it this way may limit our propagation. I can however include this as an optional  feature for our customers. I hope this addresses all your concerns, I'm happy to address any further queries. Thank you very much.

      Hi Ubio, thank you very much for reaching out on my project. I think there's an option there on the platform on making your project open source, while I appreciate the option to make the project open source on the platform, this particular project will not be open source. Please, also, at the moment, I've already engaged an external team on the project and some pre - development tasks have been carried out. Sorry its not really what you were hoping to hear but If an opportunity comes up in the future where we need new collaborators, I could certainly reach out.  Once again, thank you very much for your interest in collaborating!!!

    So you want to 'revolutionize the future of work' and you only use one existing service 'hate speech detection'?
    and this comes with a budget of 150K? Not so credible, to put it nicely.

      Thank you for the feedback. Please, the project was still in edit mode, I was not expecting it to come live at this point, I still have more content to add and possibly a video to upload as well please. Please, also, I was only able to find one AI service that aligns with my goal of content moderation on the platform. I didn't really think there were other services that aligned with our business requirement. I'd still take another look as I'm not done with the work but I already have limited options from what I could see. Please, with regards to the budget, I'd like to have a better understanding of your concerns to see how I may address it. It would be great if you communicate your expectations as well of all participants regarding their budget structure and finally, I'd appreciate some feedback on my milestone structure.

    Virtual Work Based on AI & MR

    The project demonstrates the goal of building a safe work environment and work-life balance, using advanced encryption technology, malware detection, and secure communication tools to protect user data. However, I see: widespread implementation of this project faces technical and resource challenges, especially in maintaining high security in distributed environments. Furthermore, adaptation to new technology can require time and training, slowing the implementation process. However, this project has great potential in supporting businesses in digital transformation, improving work efficiency and contributing to the sustainable development of society. This is a worthwhile initiative that should be monitored and supported in the near future to maximize its potential benefits.

    List expenses at milestone number 4

    Milestone number 4 in the proposed funding request is $22,000, I see this is not a small amount. With the topic of commercializing the solution, I agree because commercialization is necessary, but regarding the funding explanation, I think you should present it more thoroughly, or rather, in more detail. the better. What is the basis for you to request up to $22,000 and not another amount? I understand you have a good reason, but I think it should be presented in a detailed list of tasks that need to be done so that everyone can understand better.

    Hello There,

    Thank you very much for the response and feedback. Please with regards to the said milestone, I know one on a normal day may expect the commercial costs to be lower than the devealpine r cost which is not so in this case as building a successful product goes beyond the development phase, we have extensive post development work to be done to ensure the product is a success. This involves marketing costs including paid cross channel ads and influencer marketing, sales & customer onboarding costs etc.

    I hope this explains the reason for the cost better. My ideal A List influencer would charge from 6figures upwards, in this case I'd have to work with our budget.

    What is the timeline for each milestone?

    In general, these 6 milestones ensure a fairly high level of logic in the sequence of what needs to be done. It reinforces the feasibility of this proposal. I recommend adding additional timelines to complete each milestone within the overall time frame of the proposal. Thus, readers will understand the completion time in each column and the monitoring of work progress to ensure the deadline of this proposal is more transparent.

    Team information and support amount

    I only have preliminary information through linkedin of the project owner, Eme. Unfortunately, I do not have other information about the remaining members. Are you planning to do this proposal alone? I think the identities of the remaining members should be added as soon as possible. The amount of 30,000 in milestone 7 to support development after 5 years seems a bit unclear. It is necessary to analyze this amount more carefully and take specific actions to support development. However, this is a proposal with a good idea and I do not rate its feasibility low.

    Hello there,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Please, I would be outsourcing the development to an external agency, I am unable to provide their details at this point as I would only be engaging with them if successful.

    Please, also with regards to the post development budget, I am looking to ensure that the business would be in a position to succeed even after the product is deployed. This would cover aspects such as technical support, dealing with customer queries and additional feature development as I expect the solution to evolve over time. The funds as stated would be deployed on an annual basis in arrears as in the policy. The figure was arrived at following a consultation with the development team. Happy to answer any further questions!!!

    It has the potential to be a valuable project

    The AI-powered virtual workspace has the potential to be a valuable tool, but the project faces challenges in terms of development complexity and standing out from existing solutions. Highlighting the unique security features and clear value proposition for both businesses and employees will be crucial for success.

    Feasibility:

    • Moderate-to-High: The core functionalities (collaboration tools, encryption) are feasible, but integrating AI for work optimization might be complex.
    • Development and security audits require significant resources and expertise.

    Viability:

    • Moderate: The market for secure work tools is growing, but competition is fierce.
    • The success relies on effectively addressing security concerns of businesses and offering a compelling value proposition.

    Desirability:

    • High: A secure and user-friendly virtual workspace with AI-powered features for work-life balance can be highly desirable for businesses and employees.
    • The focus on addressing security gaps and illegal data access is a strong selling point.

    Usefulness:

    • High: The project can contribute to a more secure and productive remote work environment.
    • The AI features for work optimization, if well-developed, can improve employee well-being and efficiency.

    Besides, the project should consider:

    • The focus on decentralization and blockchain technology adds a unique angle but might require clear explanation for potential users.
    • Addressing the specific needs of small businesses is a good strategy.

    Here are some strengths of this project:

    • Addresses growing demand for secure and healthy remote work environments.
    • Offers a comprehensive set of features with a focus on robust security.
    • Targets the specific needs of small businesses with limited security resources.

    Here are some challenges to address:

    • Demonstrating the effectiveness and user-friendliness of the AI work optimization features.
    • Effectively competing with established players in the secure workspace market.
    • Educating potential users on the benefits of decentralization and blockchain technology in this context.

    By focusing on user needs, clear communication of its value proposition, and robust security implementation, Phoenix Waterfalls can carve a niche for its AI-powered virtual workspace in the growing remote work market .

    Revolutionizing Workspaces for the Future

    Though it would benefit from more clarification on unique selling factors, internal development skills, and a thorough monetization plan, the idea shows promise in solving important market demands.

    Feasibility:

    In response to the growing demand for safe work equipment and a better work-life balance, the proposal clearly defines the issue and offers a solution. It is theoretically feasible to deploy AI-powered virtual workspaces, and this is in line with the current trends in remote work.


    Viability:

    The team's experience, particularly the project initiator's IT background and support, contributes to the project's viability. On the other hand, depending on an outside development team for preliminary work could make control and consistency more difficult to maintain.

    Desirability:

    With the surge in remote work and data security concerns, there is a clear market need for safe virtual workspaces. While the proposal satisfies these requirements, it would be advantageous to place more focus on USPs—unique selling points—to set itself apart from rivals.

    Usefulness:

    By introducing novel AI-powered solutions that appeal to a broad audience, the project makes a significant contribution to the expansion of the decentralized AI platform. Clearer metrics on anticipated API requests and platform expansion, however, would improve the usefulness evaluation.

    Important Success Elements:
    • Security Measures: 

    To protect data, use strong encryption, malware protection, and secure communication technologies.

    • Market Differentiation:

    To differentiate yourself from rivals and draw in a large user base, clearly state your USPs.

    • Customer Input:

    To keep the product relevant and enhance it on a regular basis, collect and integrate user input.

    • Marketing and Partnerships:

    To boost awareness and adoption, develop smart alliances, and carry out effective marketing initiatives.

    Vital Suggestions for Efficient Distribution:
    • Internal Development Capacity:

    To improve control and continuity in product development, think about establishing an internal development team.

    • Market Validation:

    Make sure the product satisfies the needs and desires of the present market by doing in-depth market research and validation.

    • Iterative Development:

    To continuously enhance the product and answer changing needs, adopt an iterative development approach based on customer feedback.

    • Financial Sustainability:

    To attain self-sufficiency, establish a clear monetization strategy early on and investigate a variety of revenue streams.
