Bittensor subnets are a foundational component of the Bittensor network, which is designed to create a decentralized ecosystem for machine learning models and AI services. These subnets play a crucial role in organizing and structuring the network, ensuring efficient operation and collaboration among different nodes.

A Bittensor subnet is a subset of the broader Bittensor network, consisting of a group of nodes that work together under a common set of rules and protocols. These subnets are designed to streamline the process of resource sharing and task execution by creating smaller, more manageable clusters of nodes that can specialize in particular functions or services.

By forming subnets, the Bittensor network allows for specialization among nodes.

Each subnet can focus on a specific type of computation, data storage, or AI model training. This specialization leads to increased efficiency, as nodes within a subnet can optimize their resources and processes for the tasks at hand.

Each subnet operates under a governance model that dictates how decisions are made and how resources are allocated among its members. This model ensures that all participating nodes adhere to the agreed-upon rules and contribute fairly to the subnet's collective efforts. Moreover, subnets can implement their own security measures to protect against malicious activities and ensure the integrity of the computations and data they handle.

While subnets function independently, they are not isolated from the rest of the network.

Bittensor ensures that subnets can communicate and collaborate with one another, sharing resources and information when necessary. This interconnectivity is vital for the overall performance of the network, as it allows for the pooling of resources from multiple subnets to tackle larger or more complex tasks.
