Did you catch the first SingularityNET AMA of 2023?

“It’s a quite exciting, if complex, time right now with the craziness of crypto, the inexorable rise of AI and the ongoing build-out of core SNET tech — allowing our tech to play a large role in the next phases of the AI Revolution!” — Ben Goertzel, CEO, SingularityNET.

Ben, Janet, Matt and Jan gave their perspective on 2022, their outlook for 2023, and answered community questions on plans and priorities — this video is not to be missed to get an overview of the Platform and the project.

SingularityNET’s 2022 Progress Towards AGI

OpenCog Hyperon is a visionary project to build a complete, scalable, and open-source general artificial intelligence system based on the principles of cognitive synergy.

In 2022, the SingularityNET Foundation brought OpenCog Hyperon from the stage of mathematical and conceptual theory to working software! The alpha release of two key components is scheduled for early 2023: the MeTTa (Meta Type Talk) AGI language interpreter and the Distributed Atomspace (DAS) knowledge store. Read the full update to dive into the individual components, progress, and milestones ahead.

AI-DSL Phase 2 — Final report

The AI-DSL project has completed Phase 2 of development and is preparing to launch Phase 3, making significant strides to create a revolutionary, intelligent interconnectivity layer to augment the utility of every service on the SNET Marketplace.

Read about the milestones and achievements achieved by the team so far, focusing heavily on program synthesis and verification in this Phase. During Phase 3, the project will optimize connecting and testing the protocol on real-world AI applications running on the SingularityNET Marketplace.

The AI-DSL project development team is on track to roll out an initial product version in 2023. See the blog for more details.

SingularityNET Loyalty Rewards — Governance Event

In January, a Governance Event was initiated for the community to decide how the Loyalty Rewards Pool tokens of the Phase Two plan will be allocated for tokens minted during year two and onward.

The Governance Event uses the same ideation portal as Deep Funding to host questions and discussion; and has held open Community Governance meetings on January 26th and February 2nd.

The proposal phase has now closed, and we ask everyone to please join the discussion on the 10 submitted proposals — we look forward to our collaborative participation in this critical governance event. Voting will occur from February 20 to 26th. Please see the blog update for details on how to participate and background on the Loyalty Rewards Pool.

SingularityNET Initiatives, January Updates -

Deep Funding

Round 2 of Deep Funding’s open call for proposals ran through January, closing at the end of the month with a whopping 88 proposals in 5 different Pools. There are two main pools: New AI projects and Existing AI services; and three secondary / smaller pools: Projects in the ideation phase, Marketing initiatives, and Tooling.

For an overview of the projects, see the Open Projects and Proposals.

Participate in the discussions, ask questions, and rate other users' feedback. In addition, if you create an account on the ideation platform and connect your Cardano Wallet address, you will receive part of the 100k AGIX and reputation distributed among community members who participate.

Participation in both DeWork and meetings has been steadily increasing, and engagement in the various programs and projects is growing — you can see the recorded sessions on the new Ambassador Youtube channel.

  • The Marketing guild is also gearing up with its own tasks section on DeWork.
  • The Treasury guild will implement the Catalyst Swarm-style treasury system, expected in February.
  • The community podcast had some great ecosystem interviews — Marcello Mari of SingularityDAO and Kennedy Schaal of the new Rejuve Biotech, among others.

SingularityNET — In the News, Events, and Appearances

Events and Appearances:

Janet Adams attended this year’s unDAVOS Summit in Switzerland, a gathering of leaders for communities and organizations committed to driving purpose-driven work.

Joined by Marcello Mari from SingularityDAO, Janet led a wide-ranging discussion outlining how to ensure that the next stage of AI evolution benefits all humanity. The pair stressed the importance of inclusivity, diversity, and decentralization in AI development. They emphasized how the convergence of technologies like AI and blockchain creates massive potential for an inclusive global community where technology works more effectively for the betterment of all.

Janet shared eight key takeaways from her trip to unDavos in the January edition of “Inside SingularityNET.”

Ben appeared on Scott Amyx’s podcast to discuss narrow AI and AGI to heighten awareness of the importance of the future beyond narrow AI. The discussion dove into how the intelligence, complexity, and synergetic quality of our “Global Brain Network” is gradually increasing as the coordinated advance of multiple technologies leads us toward Technological Singularity. Ben also described why decentralized organizations like SingularityNET are likelier to make the AGI breakthrough than big tech companies. Listen to the full post to get all the details!

That wraps up the January highlights for the SingularityNET Ecosystem…

Whew, 2023 is already off to a whirlwind start, and there is no slowing down the exponential growth and innovation curve — share what you find most inspiring with us on our community channels, follow the events calendar, and share these updates with other futurists who want a glimpse of how bright the future can be.
