Hello Project PAI Community! Here are this week’s updates.
- Proof of Useful Work (PoUW)
- Begin developing parameters for Machine Learning tasks that can be performed on the PoUW blockchain, including types of datasets and neural networks
- Worked on specifications for message history, which keeps a history of how nodes communicate with each other and details the tasks they are computing - working on proposals for implementation of a message history
- Work on mechanisms to delegate verification of calculations and how tasks are distributed and handled among participants.
- Implemented the new getblocktemplate mining protocol, which was developed by Bitcoin in 2012 to replace its old getwork protocol, providing security improvements
- Proof of Work/Proof of Stake (PoW/PoS) Hybrid Mining
- Implemented support of many new commands (an action that triggers the programs to perform a specific task)
- Added stubs (temporary code stand-ins) for some new commands including “existsaddress”, “existsaddresses”, “existsmempooltxs”, “searchrawtransactions”
- Expanded existing transaction datastore to support indexing by address, which is necessary to execute such commands like “searchrawtransactions”
- Implemented support for “reverse” and “vinextra” arguments of “searchrawtransactions”, working on additional arguments including “filteraddrs”

Judging the First-Ever USC Hackathon
ObEN Chief Engineer and Project PAI Core Contributing Developer Dr. Harvilla serving as a judge for USC’s first ever Blockathon
Some of the best, most innovative blockchain apps and projects stem from the minds of students from top universities. In fact, many of the founders of the most famous blockchain projects were still students when they began working on their decentralized visions. So naturally, Project PAI is always eager to interact with students to share our tech and to find promising contributors and developers for the PAI Blockchain.
Last week core contributing developer Dr. Mark Harvilla and contributing researcher Dr. Dan Fang served as judges for the first ever USC Blockchain Hackathon. They were both very impressed by all the participants, who over two days created many exciting solutions for categories like IoT and Healthcare. It was such a pleasure to mentor such a talented group of participants and we look forward to having our own PAI dedicated hackathon in the future.
See you in the next issue of PAI Updates full of community developments!
