Cisco Partners With SingularityNET on Decentralized Artificial Intelligence

Decentralized artificial intelligence (AI) firm SingularityNET and tech conglomerate Cisco have partnered to develop applied artificial general intelligence (AGI) technologies. AGI is one aspect of AI technology that concentrates on learning the intellectual tasks of which humans are capable. Sometimes referred to as “Strong AI,” AGI emphasizes a machine’s ability to reason in uncertain situations, solve puzzles, plan and communicate in natural language. Goertzel also said that the scale of Cisco’s AGI deployments will be a major driver for the firm’s development, stating: “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.” SingularityNET founder Dr. Ben Goertzel said that initial deployments of AGI may take the form of “Narrow AGI” systems that combine the tech into verticalized markets like advertising, medical research, computer networking and financial analytics. Indeed, SingularityNET has already applied its technology in certain sectors. In May, the Singapore and Malaysia division of Domino’s Pizza partnered with SingularityNET to use the blockchain-powered AI technology in its supply chain processes. That same month, Chinese insurance giant Ping An partnered with the firm in a collaboration that will purportedly focus on optical character recognition, computer vision and model training. Dr. Goertzel has said that AGI will gain broad traction in the near future, stating, “In 10 years you’re going to see AGIs with IQs higher than humans.”

Cisco Systems and SingularityNET Hosting Their AI Project on Blockchain

Coinspeaker Cisco Systems and SingularityNET Hosting Their AI Project on BlockchainNetworking giant Cisco Systems decided to go with the blockchain-based platform developed by SingularityNET to host its decentralized AGI project.SingularityNET is a startup that labels itself as a “decentralized artificial intelligence” company, and them working with Cisco Systems on such an ambitious project is a big deal.When talking about artificial intelligence technologies it should be clear that this is in no way new technology. But the truth is, its development is something that sometimes scares people especially when the company as Cisco says that they want to create more advanced AI technologies that will soon be able to surpass humans in their ability to learn and perform new tasks.In a joint statement, Dr. Ben Goertzel, SingularityNET CEO, said:“The scale of the AGI deployments needed by a partner like Cisco is going to be tremendous, and we are working hard to make sure our AGI tools and our blockchain-based platform is up to the task.”He added that SingularityNET’s platform democratizes AI by decentralizing its source and by preventing any single force or player from hoarding computers’ capacity to learn.This partnership is a strong confirmation of SingularityNET’s technologies, that also include a blockchain-based, decentralized marketplace for AI algorithms, and various deep neural net models for computer vision and language understanding.Its biggest project is a customized version of the OpenCog Advanced General Intelligence engine, an architecture for robot and virtual embodied cognition that defines a set of interacting components designed to give rise to “human-equivalent AGI.”Goertzel said Cisco and SingularityNET here see the potential in building AGI together. He commented that this technology is “expected to provide tremendous commercial benefit to whoever develops it.”“This benefit may initially take the form of a generation of ‘Narrow AGI’ systems that infuse general intelligence into products in specific vertical markets like, say, advertising, medical research, computer networking or financial analytic.”As it’s already said, AI is not new technology - however, AGI is. It is an emerging new field within AI, or some might even say a more superior form of it. Traditional AI generally refers to the ability of a machine to imitate human know-how, such as learning and problem-solving - let’s say playing poker or studying some medical data However, most AI models are still pretty much basic, specialized on training machines at a single task - for example, a memory game.Even though there is no real definition of AGI, most experts agree that it refers to a machine that has the same level of intelligence as a human and is therefore able to learn new concepts and tasks in just the same way a human can, without any previous training. Good examples are given by Hollywood in characters as are C3P0 from “Star Wars,” HAL 9000 from “2001: A Space Odyssey” or Agent Smith from “The Matrix.” Goertzel added:“To really build a global decentralized thinking machine we are going to need to put a lot of complicated ingredients together, and the collaboration between Cisco and SingularityNET has the potential to accelerate things tremendously.”Cisco Systems and SingularityNET Hosting Their AI Project on Blockchain

SingularityNET Teams Up With Cisco To Deliver Better AI Algorithms

SingularityNET is making friends in high places, as the company announces the completion of its collaborative project with Cisco. The two companies have worked on developing applied Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) algorithms, specifically with street traffic recognition. While it’s known for its decentralized AI marketplace, SingularityNET is also a direct developer of AGI software. It created a custom version of the OpenCog engine, as well as unique deep neural net technologies for recognizing a variety of data types, including visual and language. The possible applications for AGI are virtually boundless according to Singularity, ranging from finance, genomics, natural language processing, to national security, gaming, robotics and others. Their potential compelled Cisco to launch its own AI development project, called Deep Fusion. It uses deep neural networks to provide visual recognition algorithms for various applications, such as car traffic analysis. However, neural networks often act in unpredictable ways. A famous example of this is recognizing dogs from wolves, in which an AI algorithm mistook dogs on snowy backgrounds for wolves. A deeper look revealed that the AI behaved more like a legally-blind human than a world conqueror - basing its decision purely on what kind of background color surrounded the animal. This is where SingularityNET swooped in to help Cisco. Through its OpenCog reasoning engine, it analyzed the output of Cisco’s neural networks to form a neural-symbolic architecture, a new technique focusing on giving more abstract generalizations. What is Artificial General Intelligence? The founders of SingularityNET, Dr. Ben Goertzel and Cassio Pennachin, coined the term Artificial General Intelligence in an eponymous 2005 book, but it’s only recently that it started to catch on. AGIs are more advanced and generalist than currently existing AIs, pushing towards the self-aware computer concept sometimes found in science fiction. Hugh Latapie, a principal engineer at Cisco, noted when presenting SNET’s and Cisco’s joint project that “We’re going to see AGI elements coming into play this year.” Elaborating further on the potential of AGI, Latapie was optimistic that it could surpass human intelligence in 10 years. “One thing you get when you apply, when you take a theory and see how it’s working in the real world, you get a grounding in how it’s working,” he explained. “Based on my experience making these systems that have some small elements of AGI, I’m pretty convinced that in 10 years we’re going to have it.” Is AGI dangerous? The merits of creating machines smarter than humans have been debated for a long time, and a recent panel between Jack Ma and Elon Musk highlighted the different opinions on the matter. Musk is a firm believer in the future dangers of AGI, whose ideas clashed strongly with Ma’s more immediate approach. Commenting on the debate, the SingularityNET team agreed with Musk on the possibilities of AGI, which they believe would be as transformational as the invention of language - a true technological Singularity. However, they do not share Musk’s radical pessimism. By creating an open-source, decentralized AGI development process, SingularityNET believes that it can be guided along ethical and controlled directions. Time will tell who’s right: will the real AGI be more like SkyNet or like Star Trek’s Data?

Bitcoin: Domino’s France is Giving Away €100,000 Worth of BTC; Here’s Why!

The first usage of bitcoin as a currency was when 10,000 bitcoins were given in exchange for two pizzas. The bitcoins involved in the transaction are now worth more than $100 million dollars today. To celebrate this historical sale, Domino’s France is giving away €100,000 to one lucky customer in either fiat or in bitcoins. Domino’s France’s Bitcoin Giveaway According to the rules , customers wanting to qualify for this generous giveaway must buy a pizza and then register themselves for a lucky draw. The competition began on the 4th of September and will run till October 6th and is being conducted to mark the pizza brand’s 30th birthday. Hanyecz Bought 2 pizzas For 10k BTC It all began in May 2010 when Laszlo Hanyecz paid 10,000 bitcoins, worth $41 at the time, for the delivery of two Papa John’s pizzas. The same bitcoin paid for two pizzas 2010 are now worth over $100 MM in today’s price. Now, 22nd May is popularly celebrated as “bitcoin pizza day” in the crypto community. Previous Blockchain Venture Domino’s has made an attempt to explore opportunities relating to blockchain before now but wasn’t fortunate enough to be successful. Around May, the Singapore and Malaysia division of Domino’s Pizza worked together with Netherlands-based blockchain firm SingularityNET in order to deploy its blockchain-enabled artificial intelligence (AI) technology. The partnership was created in order to improve Domino’s supply chain across the two locations; Singapore and Malaysia. However, the venture didn’t attract my market demand and the early investors in SingularityNet were rewarded with a minus 71 percent return on their investment.

€100k Bitcoin Competition Kicked off By Dominos Pizza in France

Love it or hate it, you can’t deny that Dominos Pizza is huge. As one of the thousands of pizza joints across the world, Dominos is a household name at this point and one of its French units has just launched a competition with the prize being €100,000 worth of bitcoin. In a tweet posted by Dominos France last week, the firm started a competition to give away the euros on the occasion of its 30th anniversary. A rough translation says “For our 30th birthday, you win something sick: 100 000 € in cash or bitcoin 🤑100% winning game with thousands of gifts to win, so go!” According to the campaign’s website, the contest will allow buyers to get involved in games while ordering pizzas from dominos until the 2nd October while purchase registration will be available until October 6th. The rules state the amount awarded in bitcoin will have a value of 100k euros calculated according to the exchange rate on the day of purchase of bitcoin by the organiser of the game if the winner picks bitcoin although they can just take cash if they wish. The full set of rules are here. Domino’s expect to transfer the bitcoin price to the winner’s wallet on 16th December 2019. Domino’s isn’t new to the blockchain and crypto space though. As reported by CoinTelegraph: “In May 2019, the Singapore and Malaysia division of Domino's Pizza teamed up with Dutch blockchain firm SingularityNET to deploy its blockchain-enabled artificial intelligence technology. Specifically, the implementation of SingularityNET’s technology intends to improve Domino’s supply chain processes and logistics in Malaysia and Singapore.” It will be interesting to see how this plays out and if you are getting involved with the competition, good luck!

Microsoft Invests $1 Billion in Elon Musk-Founded AI Project OpenAI

Coinspeaker Microsoft Invests $1 Billion in Elon Musk-Founded AI Project OpenAIMicrosoft (MSFT) decided to invest $1 billion in OpenAI, Elon Musk-founded artificial intelligence venture that allegedly plans to mimic the human brain using computers.As it says in Microsoft blog, they are partnering to develop a hardware and software platform within Microsoft Azure which will scale to AGI.“We’ll jointly develop new Azure AI supercomputing technologies, and Microsoft will become our exclusive cloud provider—so we’ll be working hard together to further extend Microsoft Azure’s capabilities in large-scale AI systems.”This investment should turn Microsoft into the “exclusive” provider of cloud computing services to OpenAI, and the two companies will work together on developing new technologies. OpenAI will, on the other hand, license some of its techs to Microsoft to commercialize, but it’s still not known when should that happen and what kind of technology will be used.OpenAI CEO Sam Altman said that the creation of AGI will be the most important technological development in human history, with the potential to shape the trajectory of humanity. He said:“Our mission is to ensure that AGI technology benefits all of humanity, and we’re working with Microsoft to build the supercomputing foundation on which we’ll build AGI.”As part of the deal, OpenAI, whose technology is known to abolish gamers, predict language, and generate coherent blocks of text from a single phrase, will also exclusively run its computing efforts in Microsoft’s cloud.In their blog company also noted that both companies will focus on building a computational platform in Azure of unprecedented scale, which will train and run increasingly advanced AI models, include hardware technologies that build on Microsoft’s supercomputing technology.“Modern AI systems work well for the specific problem on which they’ve been trained, but getting AI systems to help address some of the hardest problems facing the world today will require generalization and deep mastery of multiple AI technologies.”Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said that AI is one of the most transformative technologies of our time and has the potential to help solve many of our world’s most pressing challenges. He said:“By bringing together OpenAI’s breakthrough technology with new Azure AI supercomputing technologies, our ambition is to democratize AI — while always keeping AI safety front and center — so everyone can benefit.”OpenAI was founded in 2015 with the goal of developing AGI that can learn different types of disciplines, rather than just narrow abilities of todays’ artificial intelligence systems.OpenAI CTO Greg Brockman said:“An AGI working on a problem would be able to see connections across disciplines that no human could. We want AGI to work with people to solve currently intractable multi-disciplinary problems, including global challenges such as climate change, affordable and high-quality healthcare, and personalised education.”OpenAI is a nonprofit AI research organization co-founded by Musk, serial entrepreneur Peter Thiel, and Y Combinator’s Sam Altman with the main goal of developing beneficial, open source AI to combat any future rise of harmful AI.Musk, however, stepped down from the Board of Directors in early 2018 to avoid any conflicts with Tesla’s Autopilot program but he still remains as a benefactor and advisor.

Blockchain and AI: Journey to the Promised Land

Blockchain technology’s advantage as an immutable, encrypted, and secure distributed ledger is well known. The ability for multiple parties can write data to the blockchain or access the data, and know that the data on the blockchain is trustworthy since it cannot be modified or deleted, is one that is now getting the recognition it deserves. Artificial intelligence (AI) is another powerful technology, with the ultimate dream to create a program that surpasses human intelligence, and once that happens, recursively self-improve itself until it has theoretically infinite intelligence and processing capabilities. This is called the AI singularity, and the late Stephen Hawking, one of the most renowned physicists in history, said: “The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race. It would take off on its own, and re-design itself at an ever increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete, and would be superseded”. More optimistically, such an AI could perhaps solve all the problems in the world by creating futuristic technologies. It can be speculated that current AIs, and a theoretical super-intelligent AI in the future, would be enhanced by synergizing with blockchain technology. This article explores how AI and blockchain can be combined to pave the way for the fourth industrial revolution. Blockchain and AI synergy There are several ways that blockchain technology and AI can be combined to produce a more efficient technological system. First, since the former provides a distributed ledger which cannot be modified or deleted, the information from the latter can be stored in a blockchain, and then the scientists trying to understand the AI would have a clear and trustworthy audit trail of its actions. This data can then be used to make the program more powerful and efficient. Further, if AI data is stored in a blockchain, the scientists that are working on producing better programs can give each other access to the blockchain. This data sharing via blockchain accelerates the scientific process of producing the most optimal AIs. Also, blockchain technology and cryptocurrency can be combined to create peer-to-peer marketplaces for data produced by AI programs and even the programs themselves. This will help AI technology to proliferate across the world in a decentralized manner. Additionally, properly built blockchain technology ensures that data cannot be modified or deleted, so the data produced by the AI will not be hacked. Also, the program that comprises the AI could be stored on the blockchain, so it can never be compromised. Another aspect of blockchain technology is smart contracts. In the theoretical scenario where an AI has reached super-intelligence, smart contracts can be used to ensure that itdoes not do anything it is not supposed to do. This will avoid catastrophic risks like those seen in “The Animatrix” and the “The Terminator“. Ongoing efforts There are actually a gauntlet of nascent companies already combining AI and blockchain technology, and these are sometimes called decentralized intelligent companies. Tech firm Neureal combines AI and blockchain technology by allowing idle computing power to be commoditized and utilized to analyze tremendous amounts of data, referred to as Big Data. This data is fed into an AI program which then uses the data to answer questions and make predictions, as explained in the white paper. Ultimately, if Neureal succeeds in their mission to build this project, the end result would be a distributed and decentralized AI supercomputer. Golem is somewhat similar to Neureal, in that it uses blockchain technology to combine idle processing power to form a decentralized supercomputer. The decentralized supercomputer created by Golem could easily be plugged into an AI by any user, although that is not the stated goal of the project. SingularityNET provides a decentralized protocol using blockchain technology where developers across the world can share the AI technology that they create, accelerating progress towards the AI singularity, which is SingularityNET’s goal according to their white paper. It is doing this because the industry is highly privatized and run by major corporations, which keep their technological advancements a secret. A platform like SingularityNET, which allows all the scientists in the world to collaborate and build the ultimate AI, could perhaps eventually outpace major corporations like Google. Effect.AI is another company trying to decentralize development. AI Blockchain has a different spin then the projects described so far, by using an AI to govern the blockchain, which supposedly increases security. The so-called super peers on AI Blockchain are designed to protect data in the blockchain by preventing malicious activity. OpenMined aims to create a platform where AI programs can be connected with big data sets, which is an important part of the process for traini

Malta A.I. & Blockchain Summit Welcomes 5,500 Delegates

Attendance surpasses expectations, confirming the event’s global status The second edition of the Malta A.I. & Blockchain Summit has solidified its position as a world leading event in the sectors of A.I., blockchain, crypto, and other emerging technologies. Welcoming a staggering 5,500 delegates, 150 exhibitors and 100 start-ups over the two-day event, the show brought together key players from these converging sectors to discuss and shape the future. Following a recent thaw of the crypto winter, the spring event delivered some unmissable keynotes and panels, prompting debate on the sector’s flourishing business opportunities. VIP speakers included Brock Pierce, Ben Goertzel, Larry Sanger, Patrick Chang, and Noel Sharkey to name but a few, all sharing valuable insights and enriching the audience in the process. In one notable verbal joust, Roger Ver took on Tone Vays in a BTC vs BTC Cash showdown. In fact, the conference floor was rarely empty as an elite line-up of speakers kept the audience engaged with a series of panels, keynotes and fireside chats, addressing the questions on everyone’s mind. Keynotes from industry giants Noel Sharkey and Bobby Lee were a hit with the audience, with Bobby Lee emphatic on Bitcoin’s staying power, saying he believed it would eventually go up to a million dollars. The Hon. Joseph Muscat, Prime Minister of Malta, also lent an air of prestige to proceedings, when he reinforced the government’s support for the industry as he gave a well-received keynote. Eman Pulis, Founder of Malta A.I. & Blockchain Summit and CEO of SiGMA Group, commented, “The results have been overwhelming. We’re staying a step ahead, helping the government bring all these great minds to Malta, fueling the Maltese economy by supporting the tech ecosystem. There’s plenty of incentives for A.I. and Blockchain companies to relocate to Malta, so what better forum than a summit like this to bring everyone together. I think it’s safe to assume it’s the largest show in its category worldwide so far this year.” The next Malta A.I. & Blockchain Summit takes place November 7th-8th, 2019. For further info, quotes, show highlights and image/video assets, see below... Malta A.I. & Blockchain Summit 2019 (23-24 May, Hilton Conference Centre, St. Julian’s - Malta) Highlights: A.I. Startup Pitch Following a gripping pitch, Pynk.io, the world’s first People-Powered Investment platform, took the crown for A.I. Startup Pitch, winning valuable support services from collaborating brands. A.I. & Blockchain Awards (content here) Under a magnificent star-lit ceiling, guests tucked into a gourmet meal as host Rick Goddard, CCO at SiGMA, led the first round of awards. The winners were: Social Impact Group 2019 - Solarcoin; IoT of the year 2019 - Navigato; Blockchain & A.I. for Art Award 2019 - ArtSquare.io; Adoption Ambassador of the year 2019 - Europechain. Blockchain and A.I. Influencer of the year 2019 - Bitcoin.com; Media of the year 2019 - Crypto Briefing; Marketing Campaign of the year 2019 - G8C - GanaEight Coin Disrupter of the year 2019 - Holochain. The A.I. & Blockchain Awards also raised a whopping €18,800 for several worthy charities when they were auctioned off at the end of the evening, with bidders including Brock Pierce, Andy Jones, HE. Khurram Shroff, Evan Luthra, and Don Jayamaha. The donated artworks raised a significant amount of money for the SiGMA Foundation, a newly created charitable organisation under the patronage of the SiGMA Group. Blockchain Battle 15 Blockchain companies battled for €100,000 in the Blockchain Battle with Gojoy.com winning the competition. Here’s some of the best moments from the conferences: Bobby Lee - CEO, BTCC “I truly believe Bitcoin is here to stay, so hold on to your Bitcoin because you’re going to be very tempted to sell when it goes up to a million dollars.” Roger Ver - Angel Investor “Overall income per capita is significantly higher in countries with economic freedom - literary rates soar, life expectancy is higher, fewer people unemployed and fewer babies die in childbirth. Bitcoin cash and digital currency are the best tools world has ever seen to accomplish these goals.” Larry Sanger - Co-founder, Wikipedia “One of the main reasons blockchain has been exploding in popularity is it gives us the opportunity to take back control over data and our relationships. We should own our own data.” Ben Goertzel - CEO, SingularityNet “In the next 20 to 40 years it’s pretty clear that all human jobs will go away and product goods and services will be done by Al and robots. On the path there things may become complicated, but this is partly where blockchain and smart contracts can help, to create new systems for economic exchange and value for labour exchange amongst people.” Tone Vays - Bitcoin/Blockchain Researcher “The fact that i haven’t used the lightning network yet shows you it’s not absolutely necessary. If BTC Cash had as many transactions as BTC has right now their fe

Strides in Altcoin Launches Are Helping to Fuel the Crypto Bull Run

After more than a year of waiting, it’s official — crypto is making a comeback. By midway through May, Bitcoin broke the $8k barrier, and the global crypto market cap hit its annual high of over $260bn. Although analysts aren’t predicting the same price mania we saw in December 2017, the overall market sentiment is still far more bullish than it has been in the last twelve months. The analysts are probably right to remain cautious. After all, the previous big bull run was based on a vast amount of hype linked to the ICO boom. Too many startups were selling grand visions, which turned out to be over pumped (at best) or exit scams (at worst). What we are now left with is a market where the majority of those still standing are the ones who’ve spent the crypto winter working to deliver their product. Now that those products are starting to emerge onto the markets, it makes sense that capital is flowing back into the space again. Trust is one of the best indicators for positive market movements. So, it’s those projects delivering on their roadmap, producing a working product and with a visible, credible team that are creating an encouraging environment of growth in crypto. Delivering on the Roadmap OmiseGO is one example of a project that’s pulled in trust from the start. It’s a white label smart contract platform and wallet aiming to help the world’s 2 billion unbanked people get access to payment services. The project had early backing from Vitalik Buterin himself, as it is among the first to use Ethereum’s Plasma scaling protocol. Furthermore, OmiseGO has established high-profile partnerships for payment services with the likes of McDonald’s and the Thai government. Strategic alliance partners include the Bank of Ayudhya, which previously invested over $30m in the project. OmiseGO has recently made good on its roadmap by rolling out its newest release version, dubbed Samrong. This includes Plasma upgrades and will ultimately replace the first version of the OmiseGO network, Ari. Working Product In the digital world of blockchain, it’s rare for users to have a tangible product they can get their hands on, which is where Ceek stands out. The company has been around for a few years now, producing VR headsets available on Amazon and Target at an extremely reasonable price point. The company also offers a range of device-agnostic content that users can stream directly from their mobiles. Ceek has also been delivering consistently against its roadmap, last year launching the world’s first 4D audio earphones. However, it’s Ceek’s blockchain integration that has piqued the interest of the crypto community. Using the CEEK token, fans can now access VR content from the CEEK online store. This includes concerts from Katy Perry and Lady Gaga and sports games such as the Great American Rivalry Series. In an enhancement of the interactive experience, Ceek has also launched token-based voting on its platform. Fans of reality show contests like World of Dance can use their CEEK tokens to cast a vote on their favorite acts while watching them perform in VR. Users can also now purchase a physical gift card to redeem against CEEK digital tokens, making the tokens easily accessible to everyone without even needing to use a crypto exchange. Visible and Credible Team The top projects in crypto these days have a visible and credible team who lead from the front. The OmiseGO team has been recognized as up-and-coming Fintech Rockstars by Forbes, while Ceek’s Mary Spio previously founded Vidaroo and sits on the advisory board of Oculus. Another project with a standout team is SingularityNET, headed up by AI rockstar Ben Goertzel. Goertzel is the brains behind the Sophia AI robot, developed by his other company, Hanson Robotics. While Sophia may not be something that everyone can get their hands on like a Ceek headset, she certainly demonstrates Goertzel’s track record of delivering a working product. SingularityNET is building a decentralized network of artificial intelligence, essentially allowing AI robots to pool their knowledge and learn from one another. The project is currently open for users in beta 1 mode, with a second beta coming soon. Takeaway These are just a few examples, but these projects all share the characteristics of delivering on promises, providing a working product, and with visible, credible teams. Similar features in any project provide reliable indicators that the token is likely to last the distance.
