Mindfire and SingularityNET to unite the leading talents in human-level artificial intelligence

The Mindfire Foundation and SingularityNET announced a strategic partnership to select the best talents.

The collaboration between Mindfire and SingularityNET focuses on three key areas:

  • Talent: Select and develop talent pool of the leading minds in AI-relevant disciplines
  • AI Services: Build a decentralized hub for AI services
  • AI Education: implementation of practical courses and lectures in AI and its business applications

Another targeted area of collaboration lies in the tokenized environments of both, Mindfire and SingularityNET. Here the focus will be on exchangeability of both tokens and the further development of SingularityNET’s decentralized protocol.

Pascal Kaufmann, Founder and President of the Mindfire Foundation, states: “We are thrilled about the partnership with SingularityNET. We cannot achieve real progress in AI as long as we don’t understand the principles of biological intelligence. The combined talent pool of Mindfire and SingularityNET will significantly progress our understanding of intelligence and allow us to apply new findings and insight towards the creation of human-level AI, for the development of AI services and to share latest findings with the public, ultimately furthering a public dialogue between science, industry and society.”

 

Recruiting an international talent pool for long term developments in AI

The partnership between SingularityNET and the Mindfire Foundation will grow the talent pool of both entities and increase the productivity not only of AI services but also of the number of relevant insights in human-level artificial intelligence.

Ben Goertzel: “On my visit to Mindfire in Davos earlier this year I was deeply impressed by the quality of developers and researchers they had brought together, and also by their team’s dedication to the missions of understanding the human mind and brain and creating human-level artificial intelligence. The Mindfire token model is interestingly crafted to foster the creation of a productive community of brilliant minds working on critical AI and neuroscience problems from both a practical and a theoretical perspective…. Bringing the Mindfire community and model together with the SingularityNET community and model has a strong potential to accelerate progress toward our mutual goals of understanding and realizing intelligence…. Plus I figure this partnership will give me a reason to visit Davos more often!”

 

Next steps

Mindfire and SingularityNET today collaboratively launch a call for applications for Mindfire Mission-2 and Mission-3: Apply now! Mindfire and SingularityNet invite all talents and curious minds in the world to apply for one of the 10 planned missions to come. You can watch a recap of Mission-1 here.

Mindfire today also announces the publication date of a completely revised white paper: August 15, 2018. The revised Mindfire white paper will detail key functionality of the ERC20 token, MFT, and elaborate on Mindfire’s business model as well as outline the Mindfire token sale including a reward campaign. Lukas Sieber, Co-Founder Mindfire states: “We believe that giving back ownership of Mindfire to the community will ensure that the program benefits all stakeholders and ultimately accelerates a breakthrough in AI.” The Mindfire Foundation has already attracted 1000 of Talents and experts and developers from around the globe and partners with more than 50 organizations and institutions. To make sure Mindfire works on behalf of the people and remains fully independent as a foundation, the Mindfire Foundation will launch a private sale of the Mindfire Token mid-August and hold a public sale in November 2018. The Mindfire token sale will provide the opportunity for anyone to support novel approaches on understanding and creating intelligence. Join the discussion on Telegram.
