DePINs (Decentralised Physical Infrastructure Networks) represent a major innovation in the management of physical infrastructures via a decentralised approach. Unlike traditional centralised systems, DePINs allow individuals or small groups to exploit resources such as storage capacity, energy or computing power. This approach is supported by the use of cryptocurrencies, which act as incentives to encourage the active participation of network members.

Why are DePINs useful in the development of AI?

Democratised access to computing resources: DePINs facilitate access to distributed computing resources, which are essential for the intensive processing tasks characteristic of AI, such as machine learning and big data analysis. This enables start-ups and researchers with limited budgets to conduct experiments and develop AI models without requiring massive investments in infrastructure.

Increased resilience and security: decentralisation minimises the risk of single points of failure, which is crucial for mission-critical AI applications, such as those used in the healthcare or financial services sectors. In addition, the distributed nature of DePINs enhances the security of processed data, a key consideration in an era of increasing cyber threats.

Community-driven innovation: DePINs encourage open innovation, where developers and companies can collaborate seamlessly. As a result, AI applications benefit from diverse contributions that accelerate the pace of technological discovery and improvement.

Challenges to overcome

Despite their many benefits, DePINs face challenges such as managing the volatility of cryptocurrencies that can affect the financial stability of the network, and the need for a balance between incentives and speculation to maintain active participation without encouraging market manipulation.
