HALO AI Enters Carbon X-PRIZE

H.A.L.O. AI has submitted an entry to the 2023 Elon Musk Carbon X-Prize. HALO's entry combines ridesharing, geolocation, and pushing carbon data processing via electric cars. The entry – 'Automurmuration with H A L O – AI' – references the principle of murmuration that guides birds, bats, and fish to school and swarm in fluid and elegant ways without a central directing mind. In the same way, the future of human transportation and carbon management can be guided to be self-animating via data sharing algorithms.

The Question:


How do we utilize the computing power of electric cars to stop anthropogenic Climate Change?


The Answer:

We tokenize units of carbon work on the world grid and tie them to their points of origin geographically. To do this, we create a proof-of-origin data network, linking atmosphere-influencing industrial-gas emissions to their points of generation. We do this via the electric car network.

How Were Vehicle Emissions First Regulated?

On a hydrocarbon vehicle, emissions regulation is accomplished via DEF on a diesel or via catalytic converter on gasoline/petrol. These systems remove excess polution generated by fire-driven engines in an analog fashion. But for electric cars, it's possible to create digital catalytic converters to track energy usage vs miles driven. Tying this point-of-use information to electrical point-of-origin work will close the current open circuit in the carbon-electric ecosystem.


Creating Carbon Downforce


The spoiler or wing on a racecar creates what is known as 'downforce' or 'inverted lift.' This allows the car to go faster and retain more stability and control than it would otherwise.


Right now, electric cars don't create point-measureable downforce on the carbon economy, because the carbon emissions ecosystem is not tracked on a point-of-use basis. But with the implementation of Automurmuration and point-of-origin carbon tracking, this can change drastically. By creating a new data layer for carbon emissions, HALO AI will push atmospheric regulation into the 21st century.
