SingularityNET, a Decentralized artificial intelligence (AI) firm and tech conglomerate Cisco have partnered to develop applied artificial general intelligence (AGI) technologies.
AGI as an aspect of AI technology concentrates on learning the intellectual tasks of which humans are capable. It emphasizes a machine’s ability to reason in uncertain situations, plan and communicate in natural language.
Goertzel said the scale of Cisco’s AGI deployments will be a major driver for the firm’s development. He said:
“The work we’ve done with Cisco on smart traffic analytics using OpenCog’s logical reasoning and deep neural networks just scratches the surface. Let’s just say we have some much broader and deeper conversations going on.”
Dr. Ben Goertzel said that initial deployments of AGI may take the form of “Narrow AGI” systems that combine the tech into verticalized markets like, medical research, financial analytics, computer networking and advertising.
Dr. Ben Goertzel is the founder of SingularityNET.
