The Open Autonomy framework

Open Autonomy is a framework for the creation of agent services: off-chain autonomous services which run as a multi-agent-system (MAS) and offer enhanced functionalities on-chain. Agent services expand the range of operations that traditional smart contracts provide, making it possible to execute arbitrarily complex operations (such as machine-learning algorithms). Most importantly, agent services are decentralized, trust-minimized, transparent, and robust.

Building with Open Autonomy

The framework is designed to speed up the development life cycle of autonomous services, helping you to bring your services from an idea to production as quick as possible. Overall, this is the general path that you should have in mind when developing with Open Autonomy:

  1. Idea. Flesh out the service idea.
  2. Specification. Define the service specification in a high-level language used by the framework.
  3. Scaffold. Use the scaffolding tool to build the skeleton of your service.
  4. Code. Make the necessary adjustments so that the service implements the desired business logic.
  5. Deploy and Run your service.

You'll find a more comprehensive description of the developing path in the overview of the development process section.
