The AGI Podcast

Creating an Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) that is benevolent towards sentient beings and moving us towards a “positive technological singularity,” has been the lifelong mission of Dr. Ben Goertzel, the CEO, and co-founder of SingularityNET. Through this podcast, we will connect our community with leading experts in the fields of artificial intelligence, robotics, blockchain and other emerging technologies.

We launched this podcast to serve as an educational platform for our community. A well-informed community will be better equipped for self-governance which is mandated by our whitepaper. The token holders of AGI will be the guiding force of SingularityNET, they will have the ability to guide the evolution of the network and will have a significant impact on the development of our project.
