0:00 0:00
Robb and Josh welcome Ben Goertzel for a deep exploration of the narrow AIs we are quickly growing accustomed to and our fraught transition to artificial general intelligence, or singularity. As the founder and CEO of SingularityNET, Ben has been working to democratize access to artificial intelligence through decentralization. He’s also leader of both the OpenCog Foundation and the AGI Society, having helped to popularize the term ‘artificial general intelligence’. Topics in this episode include balancing design near-term design concerns—like anthropomorphization—against more consequential issues, such as who will control these systems and how they will interact with humanity.

Ben Goertzel is a prominent AI researcher and the mastermind behind Sophia, one of the world’s most advanced AI robots. As the founder and CEO of SingularityNET, he is committed to democratizing AI access through decentralization. Ben has been a leader in the Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) field, popularizing the term and envisioning a future where AGI benefits all.

With a background in Quantitative Studies, he has made significant contributions to AI, emphasizing pattern detection and training “baby-like” AI in virtual worlds. Ben’s work extends beyond AI into life-extension biology, consciousness, and complex systems, making him a true pioneer in the field.
