It was a busy week for our team as we presented at not one, not two, but THREE different events!
First up was the Deep Tech Summit on Tuesday, September 18, organized by SGInnovate as part of the Singapore Week of Innovation and Technology (SWITCH) 2018. Dr. Ben Goertzel, CEO of SingularityNET and Six Kin’s Scientific Advisor, was featured on the "AI and Our Autonomous World" panel. Many attendees commented that this was the most entertaining panel of the day, as it included a spirited debate on the capabilities and humanitarian values of AI.
Then on Wednesday, September 19, Dr. Goertzel delivered a keynote: "Achieving Sustainability via a Superintelligent, Democratically Governed Global Brain" at EMPIRICON, another sub-conference under SWITCH organized by Tabula Rasa.
Also at EMPIRICON, our Managing Director, Scott Jones, joined a panel of experts to discuss how artificial intelligence can be used to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Sticking with EMPIRICON, Kent Zaitlik, CEO of our partner company MOZI AI, gave an engaging presentation on "The Infusion of AI and Machine Learning into Bio-Medical Sciences."
Last but not least, we joined the AI Summit portion of the TechXLR8 conference, where Ben delivered yet another fascinating keynote: "The Power of Decentralization for Achieving Practical Artificial General Intelligence."
All of the events were held at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre.
