SingularityNET and Nexus today have announced a partnership to explore the combination of both blockchain and AI technologies. SingularityNET is looking to expand horizons creating a decentralized AI network based on blockchain. This new partnership could result in the most secure, scalable and censorship-resistant blockchain AI infrastructure in existence.
For SingularityNET, the partnership creates scalability, accessibility, and security for its AI network. The partnership helps propel both companies forward in realizing their mutual aim of distributing powerful technologies. They will also be exploring the use of Nexus’ satellite-based alternative internet protocol. The integration with Nexus would strengthen the SingularityNET mission of creating a censorship-resistant AI network and democratized access.
In discussing the future of secure, decentralized AI, SingularityNET Chairman David Hanson commented:
“It will become the single most valuable technology in all of history. This is the chance for us to change the world together.”
Benefits/implications of the partnership for Nexus
The partnership presents a valuable use-case for deploying the Nexus 3D Chain architecture and exploring AI applications on layers 1 and 2 of its network. Both of these advancements in blockchain technology will become available during 2018.
“Nexus wants to resist the centralization of AI and believes partnering with SingularityNET can contribute to AI safety. In a truly decentralized AI network, having rules contracted into AI decision making helps assure it will be used for good. Nexus and SingularityNET are exploring new systems together in order to create a reliable means of self-regulating trust and reputation in a trustless system. This can make AI’s safer and more resilient when some of their decisions have to be routed through an immutable contract, ‘such as protect this human.'”
SingularityNET is the first and only platform that allows AIs to cooperate and coordinate at scale. This removes one of the major limiting factors to AI growth today, the lack of interoperability, which severely restricts the ability to leverage the strengths and capabilities of individual AIs. The project is coming off its token sale from December 25th, 2017 for AGI coins. The ICO reached its hard cap within 66 seconds raising USD $36 million in ETH at the time.
Nexus is an innovative open source blockchain technology, designed to improve the world through advanced peer-to-peer networks and digital currency. With the world’s first 3D Chain, Nexus aims to solve the current challenges of speed and scalability in the cryptocurrency industry.
