Cisco, SingularityNET Partner to Decentralized Artificial Intelligence via Blockchain

Home » Cisco, SingularityNET Partner to Decentralized Artificial Intelligence via Blockchain

SingularityNET, a Decentralized artificial intelligence (AI) firm, has collaborated with Cisco, a tech conglomerate, to develop various artificial general intelligence (AGI) technologies applications.

As a branch of AI, AGI studies how computers are able to learn the intellectual tasks of humans. With AGI, the machine’s ability to communicate in natural language, solve puzzles and reason in uncertain situations is gauged. In essence, existing AI learns how characters on a page are read but a true AGI system —also known as “Strong AI” — is capable of intuiting how the book is written.

According to Goertzel, the firm’s development will majorly be driven by Cisco’s AGI deployments scale, suggesting:

“The work we’ve done with Cisco on smart traffic analytics using OpenCog’s logical reasoning and deep neural networks just scratches the surface. Let’s just say we have some much broader and deeper conversations going on.”

A couple of applications already

Already, certain sectors have started to enjoy SingularityNET’s technology. For instance, in order to improve its supply chain processes using the blockchain-powered AI technology, Domino’s Pizza Singapore and Malaysia division decided to partner with SingularityNET in May.

Ping An — the Chinese insurance giant — also partnered with the company that same month, with the aim of focusing on model training, computer vision, and optical character recognition.

Per Dr. Ben Goertzel, SingularityNET founder, “Narrow AGI” systems will be implemented in the initial AGI deployments stages. A combination of techs from the vertical markets —such as computer networking, medical research, financial analytics and advertising — will be incorporated in the system.

“In 10 years you’re going to see AGIs with IQs higher than humans,” Goertzel added.
