TechInAfrica – Announced on Monday (23/09), SingularityNET and Cisco will collaborate on developing applied Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) technologies. The former is a company comprised of a decentralized Ai network that gives anyone the freedom to create, share, and monetize the AI services. Sophia the humanoid robot is one of SingularityNET first delves into the application and integration of AI to a robot.
SingularityNET has tested some of its AGI solutions in various industries of finance, genomics, natural language processing, national security, gaming and robotics, and the solutions include a variety of deep neural net technology for vision, language, and other data learning as well as a decentralized blockchain-based platform. Meanwhile, the San Jose-based Cisco is a rapid AI-powered company that provides the solution in the network, data center, security, applications, service provider and also open for collaborations. For example, its DNA analytics and Assurance manages to improve a network’s intelligence by applying advanced analytics and machine learning. It offers customers the capability to improve the performance and hand out the resolution to the network-related issues to achieve a more robust network.
“Cisco is an extremely compatible corporate partner for a project that, like SingularityNET, is focused on AGI and decentralization. Due to the breadth of its business scope, Cisco has a need for AI that generalizes and learns across a lot of different vertical areas. Also, Cisco is a great pioneer of practical decentralized computer networks. To really build a global decentralized thinking machine we are going to need to put a lot of complicated ingredients together, and the collaboration between Cisco and SingularityNET has the potential to accelerate things tremendously,” said Ben Goertzel, the SingularityNET founder.
Experts have divided opinions about the surge of AGI. Asian respondents believe it will be available in 30 years, but the American counterparts set it in 74 years, according to a survey conducted in 352 AI experts who published at the 2015 NIPS and ICML Conferences in May 2017.
As a company that juggling the AI ecosystem, Cisco also explores more of AI in its upcoming virtual conference on 24th October 2019 at 10 am PT / 1 pm ET. The elaborated topics are as follows:
- the current trends shaping the network,
- the latest technology transformation
- AI and automation ways in changing the IT workforce and operations.
