The SingularityNET team was back in Singapore November 28-29 to participate in Blockshow Asia 2018 as well as a number of other events.
Dr. Ben Goertzel, CEO of SingularityNET and Scientific Advisor to Six Kin Development, gave a keynote talk on day 1 to a packed audience at Blockshow Asia, accompanied by his little friend, Professor Einstein.
Ben's humorous dialogue with Professor Einstein punctuated a highly entertaining and informative presentation on how decentralized AI can dominate the global AI ecosystem and bring about a positive, benevolent artificial general intelligence (AGI).
Then on day 2, as part of the special Nightshow VIP Event, our Managing Director, Scott Jones, moderated the panel, "Singapore - Another Asian Blockchain Valley?"
Joining Scott as panel experts were Jeremy Show, Partner at ChainRock; Max Kantelia, co-founder at Zilliqa; Tushar Aggarwal, Principal at LuneX Ventures; and Mark Shmulevich, Chief Operating Officer at TAIGER. The panel shared their many decades of combined experience living and working in Singapore, and discussed the pros & cons of building a blockchain based business in the island nation. The event was highly interactive, with audience members asking questions late into the evening.
