Artificial Intelligence’s value and influence are dramatically advancing each year, and expectedly, will soon dominate the internet – and the economy globally. However, AI tools presently are fragmented by a restricted development environment that most are built by one company to demonstrate one task, and it is not possible to plug two tools collectively. SingularityNET endeavors to become the protocol point for networking AI and machine learning tools to develop a regulated Artificial General Intelligence.
The platform is an open-source protocol with coordinated AI services collection of smart contracts for a decentralized market. Inside this framework, the advantages of AI become a global commons infrastructure for the privilege of all where anyone can access AI tech or become a stakeholder in its advancement. Anyone can also add an AI machine learning assistance to SingularityNET for application by the network, and gain network payment tokens in exchange.
SingularityNET is supported by the SingularityNET Foundation that manages on a belief that the advantages of AI should not be controlled by any small set of influential institutions but participated by all. The main objective of SingularityNET is to guarantee the technology is helpful based on human standards, and the network is created to incentivize and reward beneficial players.
SingularityNET’s DApp And AI Marketplace Development
The network was created from a common intention to distribute the rising power of AI. They have united the best minds in machine learning and blockchain to build democratized AI access for all. It allows anyone to create, to share, and monetize AI services at scale. The platform is the center infrastructure that enables the network to function. AI services will utilize this platform infrastructure to communicate and negotiate.
The SingularityNET DApp is the main entry-point to finding and using AI services inside the SingularityNET Network. The DApp combines data from the on-chain Registry and partners it with referenced off-chain metadata to create an in-memory index that can be searched and filtered. The DApp will develop throughout the year until it approaches its final endpoint as a Marketplace for buying and selling AI services utilizing the native AGI token.
This Dapp enables users to browse the directory of SingularityNET Agents from the SingularityNET Registry and ask them to provide a Service. The Dapp applies the SingularityNET contracts deployed on the Kovan testnet. The roadmap is still following an active development. Its design and milestone achievement is rapidly evolving and progressing.
Understanding SingularityNET Roadmap
SingularityNET’s work is complicated, but they want everyone to be capable of learning and involved in their development. Below are some essential things to understand when reading their roadmaps:
SingularityNET’s roadmap is continuously evolving.
New functionalities are added, and developing breakthroughs become possible. It is expected that their roadmaps will incorporate these new capabilities over time.
The Platform Roadmap concludes with a first release.
When every component is achieved, the SingularityNET Mainnet becomes live. To provide visibility into longer-term capabilities, they have outlined various Post V1 components. It is a working list and does not yet include every part that will be included in future releases of the Platform.
Platform development bars indicate when a component is Alpha-, Beta-, and Mainnet-ready.
If the progress bar reaches the Alpha indicator, it is Alpha-ready. When the bar passes the Beta indicator, it is Beta-ready. When the progress bar is complete, it is Mainnet-ready.
AI Services will be launched individually when finished.
Parts on the AI Services roadmap do not have Alpha/Beta/Mainnet indicators, because as a service’s progress bar reaches a hundred percent, it will be launched on the SingularityNET Marketplace.
The team has outlined the core components of the SingularityNET Platform that includes its corresponding development progress (Alpha, Beta, Launch). They also carefully detailed the subcomponents required to sustain these efforts. The purpose is to give their community with comprehensive insight into their work.
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.
