Solana Foundation Integrates ChatGPT and Announces Strategic Grants and Accelerator Program Focused on AI Growth and Development at Solana

SAN FRANCISCO, 23 May 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Solana Foundation, a non-profit foundation dedicated to the decentralization, adoption and security of the Solana network, announced today that the Solana blockchain has become the first Layer 1 blockchain to integrate artificial intelligence with a ChatGPT plugin developed of Solana Labs. In addition, the Solana Foundation has announced an AI accelerator program for university students and a strategic grant program to accelerate the use and integration of AI at Solana.

The ChatGPT plugin integrated with Solana, a first for a Layer 1 blockchain, is currently available as a download from Github. This integration from Solana Labs serves as a reference for how AI can make it easier to understand Solana data and protocols, or surface data about Solana’s data infrastructure and DeFi projects. The plugin can be used to buy NFTs, transfer tokens, inspect transactions, interpret public account data and find NFT collections by floor price.

“All developers building consumer-facing apps should think about how their app will interact with through an AI model because this is a new paradigm for telling computers what to do,” said Anatoly Yakovenkoco-founder of Solana and CEO of Solana Labs (read more about AI from Anatoly here). “AI will make Solana more usable and understandable.”

The key features of Solana – fast throughput, near zero cost and ease of use – allow AI models to interact seamlessly and efficiently on the network. Although only in its early stages, Solana has become the center of a wave of AI activity happening in web3.

The Solana Foundation also announced today that it has increased the amount available in an AI-focused strategic grant program from originally announced 1 million dollars to up to 10 million dollars. The grant program is intended to encourage the ecosystem to explore new use cases of machine learning models that interact with Solana protocols in secure and interpretable ways. The rolling grant program has already received 50 applications; new and existing projects can apply here.

The Solana Foundation also started a 3-month long accelerator program for university students which has an entire cohort dedicated to experimenting with blockchain and AI. The program received hundreds of applications from projects and contributors, and the AI ​​cohort has already resulted in one asks the Solana U chatbotwhich answers questions about Solana development and helps find the right Solana documentation, as well as Solana revises AIwhich is designed to improve the security of Solana-based applications.

The Solana ecosystem is also making great strides in leaning into AI and several projects are already using AI technology:
