Ben Goertzel, SingularityNet‘s CEO, appeared lately on various podcasts to discuss the future of artificial intelligence and the importance of decentralization in the industry.
In the beginning I was skeptical about SingularityNet, like most people are cautious about AI and the many concerns that are raised when discussing the progression of Articifial Intelligence development and the impact that it will have on our lives. After listening to many of Ben Goertzel’s interviews I realized that he is actually trying to take AGI in the right direction by supporting decentralization and a fair democratic use of AI. Especially in the last two videos of London Real and Crypto Beadles which I have listed below, he addresses the problems that may arise if a company or government controls the first super intelligent AI of the future and uses it for private interest, without a moral compass and without ethic. There are concerns about the use and the path AI will follow, that’s why at SingularityNet they’re trying to create AI that is beneficiary & friendly towards humans.
SingularityNet will create a marketplace for dApps and will be the first decentralized AI network that will let anyone create, share, and monetize AI services at scale.
“AI is currently used for selling, spying, killing and gambling.
Advertising, surveillance, military & stock market trading.”
Dr Ben Goertzel is the Founder and CEO of SingularityNET and Chief Science Advisor for Hanson Robotics. He is one of the world’s leading experts in Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), with decades of expertise in applying AI to practical problems like natural language processing, data mining, video gaming, robotics, national security and bioinformatics. He was part of the Hanson team which developed the AI software for the humanoid Sophia robot, which can communicate with humans and display more than 50 facial expressions. Today he also serve as Chairman of the AGI Society, the Decentralized AI Alliance and the futurist nonprofit organisation Humanity+.
