ArgusNFT is driving adoption of Cardano NFTs by building solutions to widespread market problems and inefficiencies.
Argus, the project's flagship protocol, is an AI/ML-powered, NFT copy (i.e. fake) detection platform. It brings to Cardano scalable, cross-chain protection from NFT copies/fakes - a problem that has plagued Ethereum marketplaces and is increasingly becoming a problem on Cardano.
Argus is made up of two main components:
- Artificial intelligence models to identify whether NFT images are copies. (Argus currently supports image files only, we've done extensive research on how to extend support to audio (i.e. music) and video files, and plan to start building out alternative media support in the first half of 2023.)
- A custom, machine learning model that assesses image similarity and other data to fine-tune Argus’ determinations and achieve the highest level of accuracy possible.
Argus' core protocol is accessible to NFT collectors and marketplaces. And Aegis (the sister service to Argus) is an image registration and notification service built on top of Argus' core, copy detection protocol. Aegis enables NFT collectors, artists and project owners to prevent bad actors from listing and selling plagiarized NFTs on Cardano.
Following the rollout of B2B and B2C applications of Argus and Aegis, ArgusNFT will build upon its core AI/ML protocol to create services addressing the following areas:
- Verifying NFT authenticity and Intellectual Property.
- Improving NFT searchability and market liquidity.
ArgusNFT's expertise in AI/ML and systematic plan to develop complementary AI protocols will yield industry-first solutions likely to gain widespread adoption - first across the Cardano NFT ecosystem, and later across the NFT market in general.
