The HUMAN protocol was started on the Ethereum Mainnet. As a supplement to this introduction – which also included the listing of HMT (the native token of the HUMAN protocol) on FTX and Gate.io on August 10th – the HUMAN Protocol Foundation has now published the HUMAN app: the first human opportunity to earn HMT directly for completing data labeling tasks, and first access to the HUMAN experience.
HUMAN Protocol provides the end-to-end infrastructure – the tools, plugins, integrations and APIs – to hire, manage, validate and compensate individuals on a large scale. It is designed to help create global labor markets where almost any person or machine can post a job, and any worker with the required skill, knowledge, or background can complete the tasks associated with that job.
While the protocol can theoretically support any work, the current majority of HUMAN tasks – created by hCaptcha – involve tagging images. These tasks are now available in the HUMAN app with the successful completion of every rewarding HMT. As a result, the HUMAN app will support the creation of diverse, relevant and less biased datasets and enable a new generation of AI and ML technologies.
This announcement follows the record-breaking CoinList sale by HMT earlier this year. To learn more about the HUMAN protocol, read this introductory piece.
The HUMAN app and HMT
HUMAN Protocol is designed as a broadly applicable technology, with implications for many industries, including the gig economy – discussed in this piece – and those related to machine learning and artificial intelligence. HUMAN Protocol provides the platform for machines to empower people by freeing up their time and attention, and to improve access to the global workforce – and global opportunities for those workers.
HUMAN Protocol is a proven technology. With the HUMAN app, HUMAN now offers real benefits for the HUMAN network and ecosystem. The HUMAN app is the community’s first opportunity to earn HMT for completing data labeling tasks. According to the protocol, a job can consist of thousands or millions of tasks. If an order involves the production of a data record, each task is the individually marked image within this data record.
The HUMAN app is the virtual gateway to the HUMAN experience. While it starts with data tagging tasks that reflect the majority of the work currently being processed under the protocol, it is designed to take any type of work and reward workers in proportion to the value of that work.
The HUMAN Protocol is more than just providing access to opportunities to gain access to worth the opportunities and the contributions that individuals make every day. The HUMAN app enables everyone to be rewarded for completing CAPTCHAs. By providing incentives to employees on a global scale, HUMAN aims to further empower its community, provide a clear example of what is possible, and ensure that these tagging images are rewarded for their contributions.
How it works
Individuals earn HMT for activities within the HUMAN app. This starts at registration – which brings in 1 HMT – and continues for each job completed. For example, 1 HMT is earned for every CAPTCHA solved (i.e. every labeled image). Individuals must connect or create a KYC verified crypto wallet in order to receive HMT and verify their identity.
Every labeled picture contributes to a machine’s understanding of the world. While the presented CAPTCHAs can be solved by everyone for the time being, the HUMAN protocol is designed in such a way that images become more specialized and require more specific backgrounds and knowledge.
