Ocean.py

Attention all data enthusiasts! Are you an inquisitive data scientist intrigued by the world of Web3 and blockchain, but unsure of where to begin? Have you developed a groundbreaking AI algorithm and desire to transform it into profitable success? Perhaps you're engaged in training a highly lucrative model (LLM) and seek to define precise licensing terms for your valuable data. Or maybe you simply wish to sell your data while maintaining utmost privacy and control.
Well, brace yourselves for some exhilarating news! Introducing ocean.py, a Python library that possesses a touch of magic. 🎩🐍 It empowers you to discreetly and securely publish, exchange, and effortlessly consume data. 🐙💦 Collaborating with the Ocean Protocol 🌊, it unlocks a plethora of advantages mentioned earlier. So get ready to take the plunge into the vast ocean of data with a resounding splash of excitement! 💦🌊
ocean.py library

Overview

ocean.py serves as a connection layer bridging the V4 smart contracts and various components such as Provider, Aquarius, and Compute to Data engine within Ocean Protocol. This pythonic library brings all these elements together, facilitating seamless integration and interaction. By acting as an intermediary, ocean.py enables developers to easily leverage the functionalities offered by Ocean Protocol, making it a valuable tool in building applications and solutions that utilize decentralized data marketplaces. Its purpose is to simplify the process of connecting with smart contracts and accessing services provided by Provider, Aquarius, and Compute to Data engine, providing a convenient and efficient development experience for users.

Architectural point of view

ocean.py is like the conductor of an underwater orchestra, guiding different marine creatures (modules) to work together harmoniously. It's an open-source library that makes swimming in the vast sea of data a breeze! 🌊
The head of our library is the "Ocean" class. It oversees everything and keeps track of the data flow.
Now, let's take a closer look at those amazing branches:
  1. 1.
    Data Discovery Branch: This branch discovers & creates valuable datasets stored in the Ocean Protocol ecosystem. It navigates through metadata and identifies the hidden treasures of the data assets.
  2. 2.
    Data Access Branch: Just like a skilled locksmith, this branch unlocks the doors to the datasets, facilitating access and content retrieval. It interacts with the Ocean Protocol's smart contracts to securely fetch the desired data.
  3. 3.
    Data Transformation Branch: Transforming data is like wielding magic, and this arm is the magician! It performs enchanting operations on the data, such as reformatting, reorganizing, or even enriching it, making it ready for the next steps.
  4. 4.
    Model Deployment Branch: This branch deploy the Ocean smart contract objects wrapped models using Brownie, making them accessible for utilization within the library.
  5. 5.
    Model Training Branch: This branch collaborates with Compute-To-Data engine in order to run algorithms and to train models using the transformed data.
  6. 6.
    Model Monitoring Branch: This branch monitors the received algorithm result logs from Compute-to-Data engine, tracking their performance.
So, in the realm of ocean.py's integration with Ocean Protocol's smart contracts, the six versatile branches embark on an exciting journey. Together, they form a powerful team, navigating the depths of the Ocean ecosystem. 🌊🐙

ocean.py Strengths 💪

ocean.py lets you do the following things:
  • Publish data services: downloadable files or compute-to-data. Create an ERC721 data NFT for each service, and ERC20 datatoken for access (1.0 datatokens to access).
  • Sell datatokens via for a fixed price. Sell data NFTs.
  • Transfer data NFTs & datatokens to another owner, and all other ERC721 & ERC20 actions using Brownie.
