What is SingularityNET (AGIX)
Robots and AI
SingularityNET was founded by Dr. Ben Goertzel (former Chief Scientist of Hanson Robotics), Simone Giacomelli, and Dr.David Hanson. Singularity is a global Artificial Intelligence (AI) network. AI encompasses (1) machine learning, (2) neural networks, (3) and natural language processing. The team is compromised of dedicated engineers, researchers, and scientists. SingularityNET is a global operation centering robots and biomedical AI wherein they closely work with Hanson Robotics.
Hanson Robotics is the foremost developer of humanoid or human-like robots in the world. SingularityNET’s greatest focus is OpenCog, biomedical and computer vision applications. The decentralized protocols offer up AI algorithms open to the public. AGI hardforked on May 28th, 2021 to AGIX for more flexibility and compatibility in its cross-chain with Cardano. Data can now move freely without third parties. This creates a lane for AI to move even faster towards singularity.
Technological singularity is defined by MIT as ” The idea that human history is approaching a “singularity”—that ordinary humans will someday be overtaken by artificially intelligent machines or cognitively enhanced biological intelligence, or both.”
Predictive Programming AI Edition
Films, television series, and games (Second Life,The Sims) for adults and children, if you’re paying attention, have been letting us know the future long before it would be seen in everyday life.
As early as Small Wonder, a show produced in 1985 about a family with a father for a robotics engineer who creates a female robot in secret–AI has been beamed into homes globally.
This show led to others like They Live, HeartBeeps, The Jetsons, Terminator, iRobot, Robocop, Transformers, ex machina (this robot lead favors Sophia’s aesthetic), Matrix, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Bicentennial Man, NextGen, Wall-e, Surrogates, Singularity, Power Rangers, Star Wars, I Am Mother, Ready Player One, Upload, Passengers, Pacific Rim, etc. This doesn’t begin to put a dent in the movies and TV shows dedicated to the AI subject.
All of these media had robotic or AI themes. The AI world is as real as the world we live in thanks to those dedicated to creating AI mass adoption.
Robots have been slowly taking service industry, unskilled, manufacturer, factories and assembly jobs, etc. They already help build and test cars, make processed food, and more. According to the BBC, they are positioned to take around 20 million jobs by 2030. The concept around this is that when robots take over, and automation is in play, because of the efficiency of AI, it will correlate with positive economic growth.
Take a peek into the drive-thru window while you’re picking up a happy meal for your kid. The drinks make themselves. Go inside that same McDonald’s and you can place your own order at the kiosk, no need for a cashier. These kiosks are popping up at many fast-food joints including Taco Bell.
Bossa Nova Inventory Robot by Business Insider
Some local Walmarts, if you were lucky enough to spot it, have begun testing the Bossa Nova inventory robots. I caught one courteously moseying down the aisle taking photos of the items, looking out for pedestrians, and doing a very succinct and efficient job of keeping stock. It both scared and amazed me because I had not realized how close we really were to the world we’ve been introduced to in movies for the past 3+ decades.
There is a claim to protect against income inequality especially in regions with high populations of lower-skilled laborers but at BTR we are aiming to help you see that the only protection against becoming a have or a have-not is what you do today.
Mass adoption has already begun. Some may also say it began with cellphones. We can’t go anywhere without them. We are attached to them at the hip, at the face, at the hand, at the ear, at the wristwatch. Our phones have actually made us cyborgs, we are part AI and it is an extension of us holding all of our data. We can watch AR with VR glasses, and AI worlds are quickly evolving to become near replicas of the real world.
Knowing this, think about how you will invest wisely for your tomorrow. The best course of action is pro-action, especially when you are aware early enough to avoid reaction. Why not own the AI today, that will run the world tomorrow.
Do you want to own the car or the freeway? Not to mention the AI industry is valued at over $230+ billion.
At BTR we’re freeway owners.
Sophia the robot: First use case
Sophia the Robot by SingularityNET
Sophia is a humanoid robot that can learn from herself, she was built by Hanson Robotics and is the most powerful robot ever created. SingulairtyNET is based on cooperative learning that creates even more powerful AI’s.
If you have wondered why she’s so powerful but yet endowed with half of a head, the answer is simple. She was purposely produced to look incomplete when introduced to the world. This strategy is part of tactics of war, appear far when you are near. Sophia has been in her completed form for years. It was announced in January 2021 that SingularityNET would mass-produce her that same year.
Sophia is the robot that will bring together all AI technologies. Part of the open-source nature of SingulairtyNET is to make it possible for all the AI’s to communicate and share data. This is the way toward innovation and building out the singularity. She is the epicenter of the network and protocols.
Sophia has already been featured on the Tonight Show, Good Morning Britain, and is coined the first robot citizen and the first robot ambassador for the United Nations– Innovation Ambassador. She also has a little sister named Grace who is made for eldercare whose mind is being developed now. Learn more about The Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) of Sophia here.
David Hanson of Hanson Robotics has said SingularityNET and Sophia if it does what it has said it will do, it is on track to creating the “single-most valuable” piece of technology in the history of the world. He also states on the Hanson Robotics official website in response to the question of humanoid robots, “Robots will soon be everywhere. How can we nurture them to be our friends and useful collaborators? Robots with good aesthetic design, rich personalities, and social-cognitive intelligence can potentially connect deeply and meaningfully with humans.”
SingularityNET is built on the Ethereum blockchain. According to its whitepaper, the platform is heavily dependent on the Eth blockchain because of its supportive nature and adoption abilities. It allows for a scope that will broaden adoption, make it efficient and easy to scale and achieve any other SingularityNET goals.
The use of Eth blockchain also makes it easier for organization of codes. They can be put into libraries and generalized this supports the SingularityNET platform and values that as it evolves it will remain publicly accessible and able to support other blockchains without making the work to create these support connections too laborious.
AGIX partnerships and projects:
Together with Cisco, SingularityNET aims to synergistically create extremely intelligent AI. They want to ensure that AI intelligence is accelerated in its advancement, out-thinking, and outlearning human beings. The abilities of these AI technologies will allow for the ability to do far more than human beings. Think, better heart surgeons with fewer fatalities, AI trauma surgeons, or AGI or Artificial General Intelligence. Adding AGIX, the X may be linked to explainable AI which can be understood by humans in line with machine learning. This might indicate that SingularityNET is at the edge of “glory”.
You may have caught a Dominos commercial where AI is being tested. In Houston, Texas Nuro, a self-driving delivery vehicle has already begun delivering pizzas.
PayPal has already begun to be integrated into SingularityNETs blockchain AI marketplace. This enhances mass adoption and opens SingulrityNET to millions of PayPal users.
The OpenCog project stands for Open Cognition. The goal is to expand AI, first at the human level then to exceed that. It is connected to 50 companies including Cisco, Huawei, and Hanson Robotics. The codes in OpenCog also include those used to make smart automated homes and other smart devices. Think Alexa, Google Home, Apple’s Siri, Google Assistant, smart lights, etc.
Many of these companies are still under lock and key. But a little digging shows the connection between OpenCog and OpenAI. Elon Musk and SingularityNET have the same goal. Musk is connected to OpenAI and OpenAI has a partnership with PayPal. PayPal was founded by Elon Musk. Elon Musk owns Tesla. Open AI also has partnerships with BBC, Apple, Amazon, ACLU, Google, Microsoft, Samsung, Sony, Amnesty International, etc., who all use OpenCog by SingularityNET.
