Since the inception of artificial intelligence (AI) and Chatgpt developed by Open AI, discussion, research, and process regarding the AI technology's purpose, application, and improvement commenced and continue to date. With the emergence of Google Bard, Microsoft Bing AI, Snapchat My AI, and many others, artificial intelligence technology is likely to not only advance but evolve each day. Today, many renowned and leading companies, such as Tesla, Netflix, IBM, and several others are using artificial intelligence (AI). According to statistics, 35% of companies are using AI and 42% intend to use it in the future. The popularity of the technology is surging day by day and is likely to reach $1.81 trillion in 2030

Artificial intelligence is the new and near future. Hence, AI technology companies need to distinguish themselves by providing new features and catering to the user’s requirements effectively. Transforming AI technology by shaping it in a way that provides quality and useful data to users is the only way to stand out and survive in the competitive environment of the tech industry. Alaya AI, an artificial intelligence technology launched in 2023 is one such example of AI technology’s transformation and evolvement, which is why it is one of the best AI technology in the world.  

What is Alaya AI? 

Alaya AI is a distributed artificial intelligence (AI) platform that consolidates data collection, annotations or labeling, and social commerce to collect, manage, and analyze data for businesses and AI applications. Social commerce helps the technology to collaborate with communities, data, and AI and encourages individuals to contribute to the data collection process. The involvement of individuals in the data collection and labeling process further enables Alaya AI to provide accurate and quality data and protects its ownership and privacy. Moreover, businesses and companies utilizing Alaya AI to collect relevant data find it less costly than other methods. 

To clarify further, here is an example that can help you understand about the technology. Suppose you are a company that produces self-driving or automated cars. You will need to collect data from drivers about traffic rules, objects and pedestrians on the road. Thus, you can use Alaya AI to collect the data which can be further used to train the AI model you are using in your cars. It will make the process more convenient and affordable for you. 

Features of Alaya AI 

We will now take a closer look at the features and specs of the technology to understand its basic functions and what distinguishes it from other AI tools. 

Data Collection

Alaya AI collects data from various sources such as social media platforms, the internet, interviews, surveys, pictures, and videos. For example a clear picture of a car posted on social media and tagged as a car, along with pictures and videos of other objects tagged correctly.


To understand the meaning of the data collected, Alaya AI uses annotation. It allows the users to label the data, such as label doors, headlights, roof and other parts of the car to understand the components of any objects, such as a car in this case.

Social Commerce

Social commerce allows and encourages individuals to participate in the data-feeding process of the Alaya AI platform, gives rewards according to performance, and allows the user to connect with others. 


One of the major features of Alaya AI that makes it different from its existing counterparts is that any single entity does not control it, but the platform is open for everyone to choose what and when to share. 

Gamification Experience

The platform offers a game experience in the form of rewards, cryptocurrencies, points, and badges based on your work regarding data collection or data sharing, and allows you to share it with friends.  

Gaps Filled by Alaya AI 

Considering the earlier platform of AI technology, the data was controlled and centralized firmly. With the emergence of Alaya AI, the data can now be shared independently by anyone who wishes to contribute voluntarily. Moreover, the data provided by the decentralized governance and incorporation of social commerce by Alaya AI is accurate and fast-paced. It also allows experts of any field to input data according to their knowledge, for example, a doctor or a surgeon can input knowledge about the treatment of a particular disease, diagnosis, or the best surgical instruments to use in a surgery.  

How Does Alaya AI Work?  

Here is a step-by-step guide on how Alaya AI works. Follow the guide to understand what each feature denotes and how to utilize it efficiently. 

  1. Visit the Alaya AI website and click ‘Login’ or ‘Register’ to make your account. The registration process requires a digital wallet, so connect the one you have. 
  2. Once you have logged in, check the toolbar at the bottom of the screen and select data entering options, such as labeling images, and videos, recording audio or feeding any relevant data. 
  3. You can visit the ‘task’ option to participate in quizzes. If you don’t have an NFT, then get one as it is required to answer certain questions in the quiz. 
  4. If you wish to sell or purchase NFTs for free, select the ‘Marketplace’ option on the toolbar. 
  5. If you wish to earn rewards and invite friends, go to the ‘Referral’ option on the toolbar. You can also win in-game dividends for inviting friends through the shareable link available in the option. 
  6. You will see a ‘System’ option in the toolbar. Select the option to customize settings according to your preference. 

The Takeaway 

The features and speed at which data is shared and transferred prove that Alaya AI is going to be a leading AI platform shortly, until and unless any other AI company fills the gap untapped by Alaya AI. It is best for Alaya AI to evolve and improve the technology by complying with the users’ needs.
