An open platform to democratise AI
SingularityNet has created a free, open marketplace based on the blockchain so that artificial intelligence does not belong only to tech giants. The objective is to allow everybody to create, develop and monetize artificial intelligence by smart contracts. Cofounded by Ben Goetzel and David Hanson, the creators of the robot Sophia, SingularityNET is being financed by an ICO (initial coin offering).
Artificial intelligence is a huge deal for the digital economy but there is no cooperation or coordination structure. With a libertarian ideology and the aim of democratisation, SingularityNET aims to develop an AI and economy research, in parallel to the GAFA, that is collective and open.
