Trustless Machine Learning Contracts: Evaluating and Exchanging Machine Learning Models on the Ethereum Blockchain

Algorithmia just implemented a neural network in Solidity, the Ethereum scripting language. Is it a Good Idea to have a neural network running on-chain? I'm not smart enough to answer that question, but it certainly is novel and noteworthyThis paragraph was amusing:

And with a moment’s notice, 22 thousand machines ran the first neural network on the Ethereum blockchain. What looked like machine code to these everyday miners, was actually a fully functioning neural network. Feb 15th was a good day.

The future? Or too many buzzwords?
