[AI Futures] Creating Decentralized Artificial General Intelligence - with Ben Goertzel of SingularityNET (S1E11)
Today's guest is the great and brilliant Dr. Ben Goertzel, the man who coined the term AGI with his eponymous book, "Artificial General Intelligence." Dr. Goertzel is known by many from his role as Chief Scientist of Hanson Robotics, where he lead the creation of Sophia, the first robot to be granted national citizenship. Dr. Goertzel founded OpenCog, an open-source software framework for AGI. He also founded SingularityNET, a decentralized marketplace for AI algorithms. Episode topics include: Dr. Goertzel's optimistic vision for AGI's future, how it might be born, and why decentralized frameworks may offer the most fertile ground for AI evolution.
Dan and Ben first met in 2012, and we're grateful to Ben for keeping up the conversation. No series on the Future of AI would be complete without him.
