Realizing Singularity on the Blockchain with Ben Goertzel (CEO & Co-Founder of SingularityNET)

About this event

In August Startup Grind's focus is blockchain. The goal is to get you up to speed with the latest cutting edge applications of this most paradigm shifting technology. We're hosting Dr. Ben Goertzel, Ph.D and his team to talk about how they are building a sophisticated AI (Artificial Intelligence) Blockchain network to accelerate the pace of technological advancement and use of AI.

We'll cover the fundamentals of an AI Blockchain integrated system, its scalability, and more advanced use cases developed on the top of blockchain technology. There will also be time for the Q&A with Ben and his team from SingularityNET.


  • Realizing AGI through Blockchain
  • What does a decentralized AI network look like?
  • How will the combination of AI & Blockchain shape future businesses?
  • The technology behind the integration of AI & Blockchain
