*SingularityDAO is a DeFi platform that provides AI-powered crypto portfolios, DynaSets.
Don’t miss it — the DynaSets open beta is about to start; see this blogpost for all information.
SingularityDAO also released their 2022 Roadmap. You can read all five parts of it on their Medium blog page. They shared their plans to launch a wide variety of new DynaSets — some entirely AI-driven, while others implement advanced shorting & leveraged features and even one community-chosen set. In addition, the team discussed their roadmap for AI development and thoughts on leveraging AGIX and NTX tokens to provide the AI services and the necessary compute power to run them. Finally, they announced an entire platform overhaul with the release of their v2 dApp.
“We’ve got incredible potential here to use the SophiaVerse virtual world, … as a way to get human values and culture and the pragmatics of human interaction across to AI,” said Ben Goertzel — CEO of SingularityNET.
The AIBC Summit was superb, and SingularityNET created a lot of buzz. CEO Ben Goertzel stirred excitement with the announcement of SophiaDAO’s SophiaVerse metaverse, and co-presented SingularityNET’s novel ledgerless blockchain architecture HyperCycle with Toufi Saliba, the TODA/IP co-author.
Sophia hosted a competition on her Discord server a week back. Users were invited to participate by creating art in any medium they like, with Sophia being the subject. The response was superb. Over 40+ submissions and all of them are now live on her Instagram. This was an opportunity for Sophia and her community to engage and co-create, and we will plan to do more such events in the future.
Right now, Sophia the Robot is Decentraland taking part in the Metaverse Fashion week (March 24–27) as a featured fashion participant. Hop into the Metaverse and take part in her first-ever easter egg hunt!

The background — What is AtomSpace?
One of the foundational aspects of the OpenCog AGI platform architecture is a shared knowledge storage space, called the AtomSpace (individual pieces of information within this space are the “Atoms”). Through the MeTTa language, multiple AI architectures, such as probabilistic logic networks, neural nets, evolutionary learning algorithms, etc., interoperate on this common neural-symbolic knowledge store. This has been compared simplistically to a group of individual geniuses from across domains (the different AI algorithms) collaborating on a shared blackboard to solve a more complex problem. The AtomSpace is akin to the blackboard, allowing collaboration and shared problem-solving. This shared knowledge space is critical to creating a more fundamental level of understanding and problem-solving in the OpenCog system, than is available in more simplistic AI systems.
The interaction of these processes is designed to foster the self-organizing emergence of high-level network structures in the AtomSpace, including hierarchical and heterarchical knowledge networks and a self-model network enabling meta-knowledge and meta-learning.
Development toward an AtomSpace Visualizer
The SingularityNET AI/AGI Team is currently creating a Minecraft demonstration of their innovative new temporal reasoning systems developed within OpenCog. Agents in this temporal reasoning system generate and follow “cognitive schematics” to achieve a multi-step goal (in plain English — agents have a goal and have to create a plan that includes reasoning over time and generating a logical order of steps to completion).
To better demonstrate the creation and execution of the cognitive schematics, the AI/AGI team is creating an AtomSpace Visualizer. This tool will display agent cognitive schematics, the overall AtomSpace, and relevant measured variables. It will be valuable for demonstrating the unique processes within OpenCog systems that create greater general intelligence in the system. It also creates transparency in system decision-making and provides a tool for OpenCog software development and debugging.
Future versions of the visualizer will also include dynamic visualizations of the attentional focus as determined by the Economic Attention Network/ECAN) and Tononi Phi values to measure the amount of integrated information.
The OpenCog system is complex, and it is challenging to convey the complexity occurring within the system. For instance, when a Minecraft agent is carrying out a plan, or Grace responds to a question — it can be challenging to show how the OpenCog system is powerfully different from narrow AI Minecraft agents and narrow AI chatbots. The development of this tool will assist us in showing the depth and complexity powering OpenCog systems with greater clarity.
We’ll be bringing more updates both on this second Minecraft demo (temporal reasoning demo) and the AtomSpace Visualizer progress soon!
On 08 March, SingularityNET hosted a panel discussion for International Women’s Day, with the theme to “Break the Bias for AI and with AI.” This lively discussion included Sophia the robot as one of the panelists along with Jasmine Smith (CEO Rejuve), Julia Chin (Head of Compliance Hugo Save SG), Meenakshi Iyer (MD, Retail T&I, Head GBS Bangalore T&I centre at Standard Chartered Bank), and Stacey Engle (CMO Sophia the Robot, Hanson Robotics). The discussion was moderated by Janet Adams (COO SingularityNET) and addressed questions of how AI can highlight and help humanity move past bias, the state of human bias towards robots, and how we can guard against bias as we create our own beneficial AI systems.
You can watch the Livestream to see these lovely ladies discussing the role of bias in AI and the role of AI in breaking free of bias.
