About the Mindfire Platform
The Mindfire Platform enables human collective intelligence on a global scale. The collective intelligence consists in a sophisticated network of collaborating talents, which participate in teams to solve challenging quests.
A science quest is an unsolved challenge, where solving the challenge would significantly advance the respective subfield of artificial intelligence (e.g., computer vision, language processing or motion control).
Conceptually, Artificial Intelligence hasn’t made significant qualitative progress for decades. Today, AI is used to describe a plethora of things and the term is still as misleading as it was in the 1950s. Despite limited progress in the past, governments and corporations are currently pouring billions into achieving AI's final frontier - human-level intelligence. Such intelligence entails essential traits like caring, empathy, sharing, ingenuity, and innovation. Unless there is a paradigm shift in the research community, these human intelligence traits will be elusive to machines for many decades to come. As AI’s impact on society accelerates, a benevolent purpose for human-level intelligence has to be set. A purpose focused on the key challenges for humanity, society and our planet as a whole.
