He is the Creating Benevolent Decentralized AGI at SingularityNET.
“My main focus these days is the SingularityNET project (http://singularitynet.io), which brings AI and blockchain together to create a decentralized open market for AIs. It’s a medium for the creation and emergence of AGI, a way to roll out superior AI-as-a-service to every vertical market, and a way to enable everyone in the world to contribute to and benefit from AI.
My passions are numerous, including AGI, life extension biology, philosophy of mind, psi, consciousness, complex systems, improvisational music, experimental fiction, theoretical physics, and metaphysics … ”
Ben Goertzel started participating at AIBC Summit Malta 2019 Bringing the attention of 6000 thousand attendees when introducing Sophia the first android to be granted legal citizenship. The humanoid, with the nationality of Saudi Arabia, has made several controversial statements, but the most recent has left the world speechless: she wants to have a robot baby and start a family.
SingularityNET was born from a collective will to distribute the power of AI. Sophia, the world’s most expressive robot, is one of our first use cases.
SingularityNET is a decentralized marketplace for AI algorithms. The future will be run on AI: automation is already improving more than 700 job types, lowering costs, and increasing output. SingularityNET lets anyone monetize AI algorithms, allowing companies, organizations, and developers to buy and sell AI at scale.
SingularityNET is a full-stack AI solution powered by a decentralized protocol and the first and only decentralized platform allowing AIs to cooperate and coordinate at scale, removing one of the major limiting factors to AI growth today — the lack of interoperability — which severely restricts the ability to leverage the strengths and capabilities of individual AIs.
SingularityNET enables anyone to take advantage of a global network of AI algorithms, services, and agent. No longer must AI technology exist in silos, only capable of operating within a specific company, infrastructure, or industry.
“Lead by Dr. Ben Goertzel, our team includes seasoned engineers, scientists, researchers, entrepreneurs, and marketers. Our core platform and AI teams are further complemented by specialized teams devoted to application areas such as robotics and biomedical AI.
SingularityNET works with companies, governments, nonprofits and other organizations to address challenges on a global scale. Together we innovate in the evolving world of AI to build stronger communities and a better world for tomorrow.
The SingularityNET platform is the core infrastructure that allows AI services to communicate and transact. The roadmap below outlines our development progress for each platform component as we build toward our goal of globally democratizing access to AI services.”
During AIBC DUBAI 2021, ingularityDAO and SingularityNET appear at AIBC Dubai 2021 with Dr. Ben Goertzel, Marcello Mari, and the rest of the team. The DeFi Project of the Year and AI Application of the Year prizes are awarded to SingularityDAO and SingularityNET, respectively. Marcello Mari of SingularityDAO gives a wrap up of May’s developments. Also, the ERC20 Converter is discussed by Jan Horlings, VP of Product, and further revealed in a demo. Meet the team as Peter Elfrink provides an introduction and background.
