Blockchain creates a symbiosis between humans, artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics that would bring many new jobs. That is the belief behind Retro Safe, a new Ethereum-based platform.

“The idea of human/robot symbiosis is that both humans and robots have a place and that place is together,” Retro Safe creator and CEO Andrew Archer said. Retro Safe has developed a number of blockchain applications that will allow for the remote operation of robots by freelance workers.

Freelancers will be able to control operations from a distance as “pilots” on the Retro Safe platforms. Another position will be that of AI specialists; individuals that step in and solve problems for AI.

“The pilot can link in and take control of the robot and guide it,” Archer revealed. “Everything is distributed. A pool of workers is available to take over when the AI or robot fails.”


The workers will be paid with Retro Safe’s Ethereum-based utility token (AIC). Individuals will mine AIC when they perform tasks on the Retro Safe platform.

A presale for the AIC Token started on January 18 and is scheduled to end on January 31, Chief Strategy Officer Ryan Burleson revealed. A token generation event and public rollout of the Retro Safe platform are planned for March.

Anybody will be able to operate a robotic arm using Retro Safe’s platform at the North American Bitcoin Conference in Miami on January 18, and 19, Burleson revealed. The arm, a materials handling robot, and a remote-controlled Jeep Rubicon operated through the platform, will be on display at Retro Safe’s booth at the Conference.

“Everybody will be able to walk up and pour themselves a beer with a robot,” Burleson said. The robot is what Retro Safe calls a Mechbot, a standard robot arm that will be operated through the platform.

The idea behind the platform is that remote workers will be able to generate extra cash by directing robots to perform tasks too complex for AI or their programs.
