In August Startup Grind's focus is blockchain. The goal is to get you up to speed with the latest cutting edge applications of this most paradigm shifting technology. We're hosting Dr. Ben Goertzel, Ph.D and his team to talk about how they are building a sophisticated AI (Artificial Intelligence) Blockchain network to accelerate the pace of technological advancement and use of AI.
We'll cover the fundamentals of an AI Blockchain integrated system, its scalability, and more advanced use cases developed on the top of blockchain technology. There will also be time for the Q&A with Ben and his team from SingularityNET.
SingularityNET is a novel, powerful platform aimed at delivering a diversity of AI algorithms across multiple vertical markets, and focused on next-generation features such as transfer learning and general intelligence. Unlike centralized solutions provided by big tech companies, SingularityNET is powered by a decentralized protocol, allowing anyone to create, share, interoperate and monetize AI services at scale. We have gathered the leading minds in machine learning and blockchain to democratize creation of, and access to, the world’s most advanced AI.
