HUMAN Protocol announces full launch of the HUMAN App with over 200,000 users
HUMAN Protocol, a permissionless protocol that offers a new way for humans and machines to securely connect and collaborate, today announced the full launch of its HUMAN App, a web-based application that demonstrates how work published to the Protocol can be accessed and completed by distributed workforces.
Although the app is not currently available to users in the United States, HUMAN Protocol said over 200,000 users have already registered during the App’s beta period. These users will now automatically migrate to the launch version, the company said.
The HUMAN App is a gateway to work processed on the Protocol. Users access it to complete data-labeling tasks and earn HMT for each task successfully completed. It is not only a functional product but also a complete open-source implementation that lets teams building on HUMAN quickly create their own solutions.
“The HUMAN App showcases what is possible through HUMAN Protocol: hundreds of thousands of users all completing work on the same network via a simple interface that serves as an access point to the permissionless job markets the Protocol enables. We’re thrilled with the success of the beta version and our community’s interest in it, and are excited to deliver this major milestone,” said Harjyot Singh, Technology Director at HUMAN Protocol.
Applications built on HUMAN technology are already used by millions of people to label data and prevent bot abuse, enabling next-generation AI and ML technologies. The HUMAN open-source community is now working to support many other apps and use cases.
Founded by co-founder and CTO Alex Newman, HUMAN Protocol Foundation is on a mission to usher in the next evolution of machine intelligence by letting machines ask people directly for the data they need to improve, at scale.
The HUMAN App currently runs on the Ethereum and Polygon networks, with work in progress to support other major chains. Withdrawals are processed through the Polygon network, and users are required to enter a Matic wallet address to withdraw their earned currencies.
Only verified accounts may initiate withdrawals. Users can verify their account – and identity – through Civic: a third-party identification solution that, once set up, can be linked to a user’s HUMAN App account by following the on-screen prompts.
“We want to illustrate the extent of HUMAN Protocol’s capabilities. Imagine any use case that requires the crowdsourced, incentivized input of millions, democratically and transparently requested, verified, and recorded. This is the beginning of that. What we’ve already made possible in the machine learning labeling market we can realize elsewhere, and add to the variety and value of tasks on the network,” said Singh.
More tasks, encompassing a broader range of requirements, will be added to the App over time, beginning early in 2021. The HUMAN App reference implementation is also being enhanced to also allow users to manage their reputation, set job preferences, and detail their qualifications and background.
