SingularityNET is a decentralized platform that aims to provide a global, open market for artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms and services. It was founded in 2017 by a team of AI experts, including Dr. Ben Goertzel, who is a prominent figure in the AI and robotics communities.
The platform is built on blockchain technology, which provides a secure and transparent way to manage transactions and interactions between AI agents. SingularityNET enables AI developers to upload and share their algorithms and services on the platform, making them available to other developers, businesses, and individuals.
SingularityNET’s long-term goal is to create a decentralized AI ecosystem that is not controlled by any single entity or organization. The platform aims to promote collaboration and innovation in AI development and to democratize access to AI technology.
The CAIO of SingularityNET, Dr. Matthew Iklé explained how @OpenCog will improve the scalability of their decentralized AGI framework:

OpenCog is an open-source software project that aims to create advanced artificial intelligence (AI) systems based on the principles of cognitive computing. The project was launched in 2008 by the company Novamente LLC, which was later acquired by SingularityNET.
OpenCog is designed to be a general-purpose AI system that can learn, reason, and plan in a flexible and adaptable way. It is based on a network of interconnected software agents, each of which is designed to perform a specific cognitive task, such as perception, reasoning, or natural language processing.
