Cardano, the blockchain platform behind the ADA cryptocurrency, has invited Sam Altman, the former CEO of OpenAI, to join its decentralized artificial intelligence project. Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano and a co-founder of Ethereum, extended the invitation to Altman via Twitter on November 18, 2023.
Sam @sama since you have some free time now. If you are interested in doing a decentralized LLM, then hit me up. Would be a fun Cardano Partnerchain

Cardano’s partner chain will use Substrate
Hoskinson said that Cardano is working on a decentralized large language model (LLM), similar to OpenAI’s ChatGPT, but with more privacy and scalability. He said that Cardano’s LLM would be built on its partner chain, a new concept that allows multiple blockchains to interoperate and leverage each other’s strengths.
Cardano’s partner chain will use Substrate, the modular framework of the Polkadot SDK, to enable trustless integration with the Cardano ecosystem. Substrate is a versatile and user-friendly tool that allows developers to create customized blockchains for various applications and use cases.
Hoskinson admires Altman’s vision and achievements
Altman, who was ousted from OpenAI on November 17, 2023, after a board dispute, has not responded to Hoskinson’s invitation yet. Altman was one of the co-founders of OpenAI, a research organization dedicated to creating and promoting friendly artificial intelligence. He led the development and launch of ChatGPT, one of the most advanced and controversial language models in the world.
Hoskinson said that he admires Altman’s vision and achievements, and that he would love to collaborate with him on Cardano’s decentralized AI project. He said that Cardano’s LLM would be a groundbreaking innovation that would benefit the Web3 space and the society at large.
