The partnership will drive synergies by pooling and leveraging talent across both networks

Today, we are proud to announce our partnership with the Mindfire foundation, a Swiss non-profit which is uniting the best AI talent globally to create human-level artificial intelligence.

The collaboration between Mindfire and SingularityNET focuses on three key areas:

  • Talent: Select and develop a talent pool of the leading minds in AI-relevant disciplines
  • AI Services: Build a decentralized hub for AI services
  • AI Education: creation, curation and implementation of practical courses and lectures in AI

“We are thrilled about the partnership with SingularityNET. We cannot achieve real progress in AI as long as we don’t understand the principles of biological intelligence. The combined talent pool of Mindfire and SingularityNET will significantly progress our understanding of intelligence and allow us to apply new findings and insight towards the creation of human-level AI, for the development of AI services and to share latest findings with the public, ultimately furthering a public dialogue between science, industry and society.”
- Pascal Kaufmann, Founder and President of the Mindfire Foundation

Another future area of collaboration lies in the tokenized environments of both Mindfire and SingularityNET. The focus will be on exchangeability of both tokens and the further development of SingularityNET’s decentralized protocol.

“On my visit to Mindfire in Davos earlier this year I was deeply impressed by the quality of developers and researchers they had brought together, and also by their team’s dedication to the missions of understanding the human mind and brain and creating human-level artificial intelligence. The Mindfire token model is interestingly crafted to foster the creation of a productive community of brilliant minds working on critical AI and neuroscience problems from both a practical and a theoretical perspective. Bringing the Mindfire community and model together with the SingularityNET community and model has a strong potential to accelerate progress toward our mutual goals of understanding and realizing intelligence — Dr. Ben Goertzel

Recruiting an international talent pool for long term developments in AI

The partnership between SingularityNET and Mindfire will grow the talent pool of both entities and increase the productivity not only of AI services but also of the number of relevant insights in human-level artificial intelligence.
