GENIA Latinoamérica and Singularity Studio announce strategic partnership
Decentralized enterprise AI firm Singularity Studio and AI R&D startup, GENIA Latinoamérica, have formed a new partnership focused on accelerating the growth of the Latin American AI ecosystem and implementing AI-based solutions to some of the most pressing Latin American regional specific challenges.
GENIA is dedicated to harnessing the power of machine learning and deep tech for the benefit of Latin America, through #YoSoyFuturo, their regional network of AI R&D Laboratories, building upon the first Latin American Regional Strategy, AI Diplomacy, and AI Inclusion. Singularity Studio is an enterprise AI solutions provider developing revolutionary next-generation Artificial General Intelligence technologies based on neural-symbolic learning and reasoning algorithms and the SingularityNET blockchain-based AI platform. The two organizations have come together to jointly implement next-generation AI Made in Latin America.
“This partnership is a turning point to make Latin America a vital element in the worldwide development of AI”, said Jean Garcia Periche, GENIA’s Chief Government Officer. “Singularity Studio supports GENIA’s critical mission of giving every country in Latin America, agency, and including the region into the global system of research and development, through our #YoSoyFuturo Labs.”
Singularity Studio has developed a strong track record of supplying cutting-edge enterprise AI solutions across a variety of vertical markets. A pioneer in decentralized blockchain-based AI, the firm offers custom AI development and integrations using AI-as-a-service (AIaaS), a strategy ideally suited for reinforcing GENIA’s regional plans.
Due to its history as a spinoff from the SingularityNET Foundation, creator of the first decentralised ecosystem of interconnected AI agents, Singularity Studio possesses unique expertise in creating large-scale decentralized “societies of AI minds” capable of cooperative and emergent intelligence. Singularity Studio’s ability to offer scalable AI services operating over large-scale decentralized networks will be one key component in collaborating with GENIA’s mission of including Latin America into the global development of artificial intelligence and accelerating the deployment of Intelligent Digital Transformation across industries and sectors within the region.
“The SingularityNET decentralized AI framework has been a massively global pursuit from the beginning,” notes SingularityNET Foundation CEO Dr. Ben Goertzel. “We have had contributors to our codebase, and users of our platform, from multiple countries on every continent. One of our motivating ideas has always been to combine AI expertise, AI algorithms, data, and customer needs from everywhere on the planet in a single decentralized network with no central controller so that everyone can contribute and everyone can benefit from the combined synergetic intelligence in the network.
“Our GENIA partnership is especially exciting to me,” Dr. Goertzel continues, “because I myself got my start in Latin America — I was born in Rio de Janeiro and hold dual Brazilian and American citizenship. Through my connections with Brazil and other Latin American countries, I have long been deeply aware of the rich AI talent and expertise that exists there, which, however, has not always been effectively leveraged to help address key Latin American issues. Singularity Studio and GENIA, working together, will close this gap for everyone’s benefit.”
GENIA’s Inter-American Network of AI R&D Laboratories, #YoSoyFuturo, is engaged in building the infrastructure needed to develop Latin America’s AI capabilities by connecting business, industry, governments, academia, and civil society to regional Innovation Hubs that span across Latin America. Through GENIA’s framework of AI Diplomacy, the company elevates international cooperation and agreements to deploy and implement large-scale artificial intelligence projects and initiatives, to strategically position Latin America as a key element in universally beneficial artificial intelligence.
Bill Inman the CEO of Singularity Studio said “We are excited to partner with GENIA Latinoamerica in the Latin American region to accelerate the development of more AI talent and proprietary technology. Our decentralized enterprise AI ecosystem will grow from this partnership and expand on our labs in Brazil, where our CTO Cassio Pennachin is headquartered. The passion of GENIA CEO Felipe Castro Quiles for growing emerging technology in the region is exemplary and we look to amplify that enthusiasm through our AI resources.”
Together, the companies intend to deploy infrastructure that will create the Latin American ecosystem of intelligent digital transformation and consolidate data, academia, entrepreneurship, and public policy through GENIA’s network of R&D AI Labs for the global marketplace.
“GENIA and Singularity Studio partnering advances the robustness of AI systems, developed by all and for all”, expressed Felipe Castro Quiles, Chief Executive Officer of GENIA. “By investing in the region, training local talent, and establishing #YoSoyFuturo in every country, we are open for business offering global solutions Made in Latin America. Have in mind that a collective market of more than 600 million consumers just found its place in the Intelligent Transformation era.”
GENIA is a Public Benefit Corporation harnessing the power of machine learning and deep tech to connect Latin America to a regional matrix of artificial intelligence research & development and include Latin America into the Global AI Ecosystem. GENIA launched the first Regional AI Strategy for Latin America with the purpose of making certain that our people are included in global AI development by connecting scientists, entrepreneurs, data, and public policy, through the #YoSoyFuturo AI Labs, and that Latin America leapfrogs to the new digital era.
