OpenCog Hyperon is the redesign, from the ground up, of the original “OpenCog Classic” framework for AGI, that will allow massive increases in network scalability and intelligence. OpenCog Hyperon is a leap beyond the capabilities of individual approaches to AGI or their direct hybridization, achieving another level of capability entirely. OpenCog Hyperon will be a framework for global AGI development, as TensorFlow or PyTorch have been widely adopted frameworks for Deep Learning development.

Per Phase 2, once the OpenCog Hyperon framework has been built, the ability for collaborative AI processes on the SingularityNET Platform will be exponential. This will open the door to increasingly intelligent networks of self-assembling AI agents…enabling the emergence of AGI, artificial general intelligence.

For those unfamiliar with OpenCog Classic or OpenCog Hyperon, here is a high level overview:

The basic design idea starts with the Atomspace, a metagraph knowledge store. A number of AI learning and reasoning agents read form and write to the Atomspace concurrently and cooperatively. The various AI agent interactions must be cooperative, helping each other rather than counteracting or confusing each other — a theoretical concept formalized as “cognitive synergy”.

An extremely simplified representation of the framework is: a set of specialty thinkers (i.e. various kinds of narrow AI components) all working together on a problem displayed on a common blackboard (the Atomspace). One agent advances the problem solving on the shared blackboard through its specialty, and when stuck, another type of agent steps in to move the problem forward in a new direction.

Coordinating these diverse agents to work in a synergistic manner is incredibly challenging. However, the intelligence and genuine understanding that will occur through the complex and nuanced interacting system and data store will be groundbreaking in its capacity.

The OpenCog Hyperon team has moved the new framework forward considerably in 2021, formalizing many of the conceptual and theoretical aspects of the design, and cementing these specifications in development and implementation.

MeTTa — a native development language for OpenCog Hyperon

  • Preliminary MeTTa prototyping
  • Achieved general consensus on MeTTa language features and developed first specification
  • MeTTa interpreter language candidate evaluation, including Idris and Typed Racket
  • Rust was chosen for further prototyping
  • Reimplemented early C++ prototype functionality in Rust, with improvements
  • Added probabilistic dependent types and recursion schemes as motivating examples to be used or handled by MeTTa

Distributed AtomSpace

  • Proposed a new design for the Distributed AtomSpace; prototyping is progressing rapidly
  • Completed benchmarking of initial speed for the DAS
  • Testing wiki2amr data collection for Distributed Atomspace

Minecraft Testbed Progress

  • Minecraft agent #1, neuro-symbolic agent
  • Planning and initial experimentation in the flat world, including subsymbolic skills orchestrated by symbolic real-time reasoning capable of achieving various goals
  • Initial use of visual input to operate in the default 3D world, achieving multi-step goals like finding water, mining iron ore, crafting a lever without the need for training or reprogramming for each goal separately.
  • Minecraft agent #2, temporal reasoning agent
  • Temporal reasoning creates multi-step “cognitive schematics” to find and collect diamonds in locked houses.
  • Work was begun on updating and developing the AtomSpace visualizer to better display an agent’s state as it pursues its goals.

The OpenCog Hyperon team is also working closely with the TrueAGI project. TrueAGI will focus on providing Hyperon-based services to enterprises across various vertical markets. TrueAGI will provide product-specific use-cases with ambitious proto-AGI goals, while further supporting research and development of the OpenCog Hyperon framework. These projects will speed the development and utilization of OpenCog Hyperon-based AI/AGI solutions. This will accelerate bringing OpenCog Hyperon solutions to the SingularityNET Platform.

Here is the lead for the OpenCog Hyperon Project, Dr. Alexey Potapov, presenting the 2021 OpenCog Hyperon Team update:

  • Extend the MeTTa language prototype; in particular, support for type systems
  • Developing Minecraft agent reasoning in MeTTa
  • Extend the Minecraft neuro-symbolic agent with free exploration and improve its capability to achieve distant goals
  • Minecraft agent #1, neuro-symbolic agent, baseline demo release
  • Minecraft agent #2, temporal reasoning agent, initial demo release
  • Feasibility study of the DAS (Distributed Atomspace) design
  • Preparation for TrueAGI token launch

Right now, Dr. Alexey Potapov is encouraging community involvement
