Using artificial intelligence (AI) to make SMARTER cryptocurrency and DeFi trades (w. Ben Goertzel)

Bitcoin out of the Box

SingularityDAO ($SDAO) is a project incubated by SingularityNET. The SingularityNET platform utilises artificial intelligence (AI) to manage cryptocurrency portfolios known as Dynasets. Similar to an AI-powered decentralized hedge fund, it will make it easier for users to get exposure to the cryptocurrency market and make SMARTER trades.   I interview Dr. Ben Goertzel, CEO and Founder of SingularityNET, and AI mastermind.

61. Ben Goertzel - The unorthodox path to AGI

Towards Data Science

No one knows for sure what it’s going to take to make artificial general intelligence work. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t prominent research teams placing big bets on different theories: DeepMind seems to be hoping that a brain emulation strategy will pay off, whereas OpenAI is focused on achieving AGI by scaling up existing deep learning and reinforcement learning systems with more data, more compute. Ben Goertzel —a pioneering AGI researcher, and the guy who literally coined the term “AGI” — doesn’t think either of these approaches is quite right. His alternative approach is the strategy currently being used by OpenCog, an open-source AGI project he first released in 2008. Ben is also a proponent of decentralized AI development, due to his concerns about centralization of power through AI, as the technology improves. For that reason, he’s currently working on building a decentralized network of AIs through SingularityNET, a blockchain-powered AI marketplace that he founded in 2017. Ben has some interesting and contrarian views on AGI, AI safety, and consciousness, and he was kind enough to explore them with me on this episode of the podcast.

[AI Futures] Creating Decentralized Artificial General Intelligence - with Ben Goertzel of SingularityNET (S1E11)

AI in Business

Today's guest is the great and brilliant Dr. Ben Goertzel, the man who coined the term AGI with his eponymous book, "Artificial General Intelligence." Dr. Goertzel is known by many from his role as Chief Scientist of Hanson Robotics, where he lead the creation of Sophia, the first robot to be granted national citizenship. Dr. Goertzel founded OpenCog, an open-source software framework for AGI. He also founded SingularityNET, a decentralized marketplace for AI algorithms. Episode topics include: Dr. Goertzel's optimistic vision for AGI's future, how it might be born, and why decentralized frameworks may offer the most fertile ground for AI evolution. Dan and Ben first met in 2012, and we're grateful to Ben for keeping up the conversation. No series on the Future of AI would be complete without him.
