WowDAO platform is currently in the development phase. Please, stay tuned for exciting updates and upcoming features
WowDAO is the 1st decentralized autonomous organization for the global open-source AI community.

💫 Our mission is to democratize AI, and to do that the future of AI needs to be globally collaborative and fully decentralized.

🌐 WowDAO is a blockchain-based cooperative ecosystem that supports the entire process of AI inventions, from innovation to funding to commercialization as digital ownership certificates, known as IP-NFTs, for intellectual property.

In 2023, WowDAO successfully organized 2 incredible events that brought together the best minds in AI and Web3 to grow the community:

  • Worldwide AI Hackathon 2023: An exclusive incubator program designed for AI enthusiasts and early-stage AI startups. As of August 2023, over 1,700 contestants from 88 countries have registered for the hackathon, which is judged and mentored by over 100 experts from leading tech giants and corporations, including Google, Microsoft, JP Morgan Chase, Intel, IBM, Qualcomm, Apple, Deloitte, Accenture, Stanford, etc.
  • Worldwide AI & Web3 Summit: A 2-day educational event that combined the Worldwide AI Hackathon closing ceremony with a series of panels and keynotes on AI and Web3. The summit featured a star-studded lineup of 40+ speakers from renowned institutions like Cisco, HAI Stanford, SingularityNET, Qualcomm, Oracle, Meta, Google DeepMind, NVIDIA, Oxford, and Bosch Venture.
We are excited to continue the journey to bring AI development on blockchain and create a decentralized organization for the AI community where everyone has a say to shape the future of their organization and receive profits sharing based on their contributions.
