Networking giant Cisco Systems selected the blockchain-based platform developed by SingularityNET to host its decentralized AGI project. Artificial General Intelligence is a branch of AI that focuses on a computer's ability to learn intellectual tasks. Whereas existing AI might learn to read characters on a page, for example, a true AGI system might intuit how to write the book. In a joint statement, Dr. Ben Goertzel, SingularityNET CEO, said, "The scale of the AGI deployments needed by a partner like Cisco is going to be tremendous, and we are working hard to make sure our AGI tools and our blockchain-based platform is up to the task." SingularityNET's platform democratizes AI by decentralizing its source, preventing any single force or player from hoarding computers' capacity to learn.
