SingularityNET is known as a decentralized, open market for AI, aiming to bridge the gap between AI developers and business users. It is a full-stack AI innovation powered by a decentralized protocol.
The platform was born from a mutual intention to spread the power of AI globally. Sophia considered as the world’s most expressive robot is one of the company’s first use cases. She applies multiple AI modules to see, hear, and respond empathetically. Several of her underlying AI modules will be
accessible open-source on SingularityNET.
SingularityNET As An Open API For All
SingularityNET gives APIs for groups to access AI services that might be outside of their specialization. For instance, an AI development organization might want to create a system that classifies animals in a video. That team should concentrate on utilizing AI to parse images, but do not have the means to develop an audio-parsing algorithm sufficiently.
With SingularityNET, they have the chance to access the more extensive network of AI services to discover another group specializing in audio parsing. By paying for that audio parsing with AGI tokens, they are basically outsourcing the elements of AI that they don’t want to converge on, clearing their development resources to focus on the visual parsing.
Welcoming A New Beginning
The Token Generation Event of SingularityNET was a booming success made possible by its community in 2017. On the same year, they have begun the quest committing and assuring that their community members will be capable of governing the decentralized network democratically.
Their operation for the past years was full of challenges that made them determined to pursue what they aim. The SingularityNET team took the winding road with commitment and integrity as they knew that the SingularityNET community had supported them in every way.
Today, they are proudly announcing that part of that long journey will be ending today. They have launched the Beta version of SingularityNET Platform on the Ropsten Network.
The Beta’s test phase is now active on the Ropsten Network, one of the distinguished testnets of the Ethereum network. There are selected volunteers and community leaders who were given access to this private version of the Beta for stress testing.
Three Phases Of SingularityNET’s Journey
The platforms private Beta launching on the Ropsten Network’s is just the start in the intended three-phase launch of the Beta version on the Ethereum network.
The features of the three-phase launch plan are:
Phase 1: On February 4th — launching of the Beta on the Ropsten Network, and chosen volunteers and community leaders were granted access to it for stress testing.
Phase 2: On February 11th — the Test Network Beta will be available to the public to collect their feedback and for an additional Beta stress test.
Phase 3: On the end of February, after working on the feedback from its community, they will officially launch the Beta version of the SingularityNET platform on the Ethereum network.
This launch of the Beta signs the end of one part of their journey and the commencement of another. The whole SingularityNET team is looking forward to the feedback and comments from their community members, and they are eager to start the next stage of their journey to democratize AI with them.
Since Sophia was launched, she became one of the leading techno subjects all over the world. Sophia is a robot from Hanson Robotics and is involved lately in scientific discussions.
We can read thousands of online blogs, articles and news about SingularityNET and its legendary robot Sophia. However, some of those have created confusions about Sophia’s real level of intelligence. It unintentionally made other people think that the robot has wholly reached levels same on humankind. Yes, Sophia is advanced; she can walk, speak, remember faces, and understand speeches, but she hasn’t achieved the highest status “yet,” but she will undoubtedly become smarter and more conscious in the future. She may look close to but not precisely humans.
Sophia is being operated through several control systems. Timeline editor is used in preprogramming speeches and sometimes in interacting to media ’s pre-specified questions. Also, a sophisticated chat-bot is used as a computer program designed to select from a big palette of template responses that are based on a limited level of understanding. Another operating system is the refined cognitive design with Artificial General Intelligence- the OpenCog. It allows the network to interoperate languages, actions, and perceptions in a more flexible manner. It acts as chief control architecture with useful tools and deep neural network to attain the greatest humanoid robots. OpenCog is currently under (R&D) Research and Development but is now being used in practical implications like of SingularityNET.
Some of the media and participants during discussions or conferences with Sophia are advised to stick on the list of approved questions. But now, Ben Goertzel and David Hanson decided not to choose script-based approaches and prefer a public interaction with her. This way, they cannot predict what Sophia will say and how she will respond.
Saudi Arabia gave Sophia honorary citizenship which fuels more attention from the public. Other issues have made her visibly noticed by media and investors.
About SingularityNET – the Network that Empowers Robot Sophia
SingularityNET is the decentralized network for machine intelligence. It is a platform that helps developers and businesses in accommodating their needs. It also allows people to develop, share and monetize AI products far away from being controlled by a single giant company. Here, everyone has the right to access the singularity AI. AGI tokens are the token used in SingularityNET transactions. It has a total of one billion crypto supplies.
By now, you probably know some things about Sophia. She is a good representation of the future AI. Most of us believe that their time will indeed come and their presence will be indistinguishable from a human. As we can see, SingularityNET is trying their very best to portray a responsible and distributed network for this kind of intelligence. Hopefully, robots will be developed for the good motives, to help and assist us without abusing their influences and strengths.
