|▲ 인공지능혁명2030 공저자 벤고르첼과 박영숙|
싱귤래리티스튜디오의 이사겸 한국대표인 박영숙유엔미래포럼 초청으로 2월 17-19일까지 방한하는 벤 고르첼박사는 인공지능 역사의 산 증인다. 그는 인공지능혁명2030이란 저서를 박영숙공저로 2017년에 펴냈다.
그런데 그는 최근 IEEE 글로벌인공지능표준위원장인 투피 살리바와 토다래리티를 만들어 다양한 인공지능의 표준화를 시도하고, 이미 개발된 프로젝트나 한국에서 꼭 필요로하는 인공지능프로젝트를 소개하려한다.
예를들면 블록체인기반의 심볼릭인공지능기술로 만들 수 있는 프로젝트들은 스마트 에너지로 재생에너지등의 생산량에 탄소배출량 탄소상쇄및 에너지거래를 추적 분석가능하다. 또 이미 시스코에 만들어준 프로젝트인데 교통분석인공지능시스템이 있다. 개별의료보건 헬스케어 시스템으로 개개인의 의료보건기록과 내용 등을 인공지능으로 처리한다. 그외에 정부나 국회의 의사결정시스템으로 국회의원 장관 대통령의 보좌관역할을 하면서 국민상시여론조사를 통해 국민들이 원하는 것이 무엇인지, 이를 주민참여입법,예선제도로 보좌해주며 특히 엄청난 정보나 급속하게 변하는 신기술에 관련된 입법추진등을 도와준다. 분만아니라 인공지능교사로봇, 챗봇, 아바타 등이 학생들을 교육시키고 지식을 전달하는 등의 인공지능교육시스템, 국민들의 치안과 안보 등을 위한 전국 CCTV분석을 비디오 오디오 얼굴 음성인식 등으로 찾는 사람을 찾아내며 열화상카메라를 분석하여 바이러스 감염 의심자들을 찾아낼 수도 있다. 그외 인공지능작곡가, 화가 등이 되도록 가르치거나 작곡, 그림을 하는 인공지능을 다양하게 활용하여 문화예술분야에 인공지능을 들여올 수 있다. (blockchain-based neural-symbolic AI to areas such as Smart Energy, Traffic Analytics, Healthcare (personalized medicine), Government decision support, Education (AI tutoring systems… chatbots, avatars and robots…), Security camera analysis — e.g. event recognition from video and audio, AI in Music )
싱귤래리티스튜디오AI는 앞으로 다양한 인공지능 표준화 기반기술 연구를 한다. 인공지능센터에 가장 빠른 칩을 장착한 데이터센터를 설립하고, 대량처리가능한 프로젝트 즉 국가안보, 보안, 국민들의 치안과 사회복지 등을 실현시키는 인공지능처리기능을 갖는다. 인공지능표준연구원, 인공지능교육센터를 운영하며, IEEE 관련 인공지능 표준기능 테스팅 컨퍼런스, 인재양성프로그램, 스타트업지원 엑셀러레이팅 등 인공지능 전반의 산업생태계 확산을 위한 기술, 정책 등을 만든다.
싱귤래리티스튜디오는 싱귤래리티넷 플랫폼과 인공지능을 활용하여 다양한 기업들의 인공지능 소프트웨어와 기업업무 활성화및 확장가능한 인프라를 구축한다. 싱귤래리티켓 플랫폼 기반으로 구축된 최종사용자 애플리케이션을 개발하며, 인공지능 서비스인프라AI Infrastructure-as-a-Service 를 구축한다.
분산형 AI서비스 마켓플레이스로 태어난 싱귤래리티스튜디오는 싱귤래리티넷 프로젝트의 수익창출 스핀인 프로젝트로 플랫폼에 올라와 다양한 소프트웨어 혹은 어플을 만들어 돈을 벌 수 있는 비즈니스모델을 선보인다.
이 싱귤래리티스튜디오는 2019년 8월초 중국 국유인민보험회사의 핀테크중심 자쇠사인 PICC Financial Services와 "전략적 협력가서"에 서명했다.
Singularity Studio will create enterprise software and scalable infrastructure leveraging the SingularityNET platform and AI. We will be creating end-user applications built on top of the SingularityNET Platform and we will be offering AI Infrastructure-as-a-Service.
Singularity Studio will create and market enterprise-level products and infrastructure based on SingularityNET뭩 decentralized AI platform.
In yet another addition to this week뭩 list of milestones, SingularityNET is thrilled to announce the creation of a spin-off entity called Singularity Studio Ltd. The new, for-profit offshoot will focus on creating enterprise software based on the SingularityNET platform, in addition to the infrastructure needed to scale those products.
To avoid any confusion with the naming and affiliations, here is a brief recap of the organizations and where we are heading:
SingularityNET뭩 platform is a full-stack AI solution powered by a decentralized protocol. The company was co-founded by myself while I was the chief scientist of the robotics firm Hanson Robotics and leader of the software team behind humanoid robot Sophia. SingularityNET also counts AI, software engineering and blockchain experts like Cassio Pennachin, Simone?Giacomelli and Hilen Amin among its management team. The beta version of the SingularityNET decentralized AI platform has been announced for launch in February 2019.
On the other hand, Singularity Studio will be an entirely new entity which will create a general purpose software suite enabling SingularityNET-based AI analytics for the enterprise. Singularity Studio will be partially owned by the SingularityNET Foundation.
Regarding its utility: it will enable the use of SingularityNET in a hybrid-cloud setting; on-premise SingularityNET sub-networks will cooperate with the primary public cloud-based SingularityNET network. The software suite will be equipped with modules addressing specific vertical markets, beginning with health tech, fintech, biotech, the Internet of Things, and human network analytics. The core aim is to create scaled, widely adopted commercial products whose back ends are centered on the SingularityNET platform and SingularityNET Foundation뭩 IPs.
Cost-effectively scaling these new enterprise products will require significant infrastructure work, such as enabling the SingularityNET platform to run on a bare server farm and removing the dependence on services like AWS or Google Cloud (which exists, for now, on the back end of the SingularityNET beta platform). Meeting this challenge head-on will lead to broader adoption of the platform and associated AI tools, and a new revenue stream from infrastructure-as-a-service.
In a series of announcements I shared at the Web Summit, I noted that when we started SingularityNET, we gathered some of the leading minds in AI and blockchain with a simple goal: to catalyze the emergence of beneficial general intelligence across the world뭩 computing networks. We believe the best way to do this is to democratize access to AI technology and let anyone fully contribute to, and take advantage of, a global network of AI algorithms, services, and agents. This spin-off is a step towards bringing that same level of AI democratization to the doorstep of enterprises, and we뭨e couldn뭪 be more excited about it. Once Singularity Studio is fully up and running, this will do wonders to drive utilization of the SingularityNET platform and get our AGI tokens flowing through the veins of the world뭩 enterprises.
SingularityNET뭩 Chief AI Officer Cassio Pennachin also expressed his views on this new endeavor, highlighting that Singularity Studio will bring about another impressive team and that it will be essential to drive wider enterprise-level adoption:
밄en and I spent more than 15 years working together leading teams providing AI services for large enterprises, prior to the formation of SingularityNET [? Our VP of Solutions Hilen Amin and a number of our other team members have similar backgrounds. Drawing on this experience, we뭨e going to build a great team for Singularity Studio that is going to provide tremendous value to enterprises in multiple markets including fintech and biotech and IoT. Growing a platform like SingularityNET requires driving adoption on both the demand and supply sides at once; and Singularity Studio will give a big jump on the demand side, getting corporates to rely on our decentralized network for their AI needs rather than going the conventional big tech route. The more usage there is of the SingularityNET by large corporations or anyone else, the more appealing it will be to AI developers to put their AIs in the network. In short, we expect Singularity Studio to seed exponential growth in the utilization of the SingularityNET platform and toolset. Which is exactly what we need in order to divert the momentum of the world뭩 AI ecosystem away from conventional big tech and toward the decentralized ecosystem.?/P>
To conclude, the SingularityNET founders believe in open source and decentralized control, so that no single individual, corporation, or government will be able to dominate AI as it becomes increasingly more generally intelligent and capable. To achieve that goal and become a real decentralized alternative in the market, Singularity Studio will provide the necessary scaling infrastructure and generate more interest among corporate actors.
The final legal structure of Singularity Studio is still in process; SingularityNET뭩 executive team is consulting with their advisors and the AGI token-holding community.
SingularityNET plans to reinforce and expand its collaborations in order to shape the coming AI Singularity into a positive one, for all. To read more about our other partners.
The best way forward is to come together and work practically towards creating a better future. We hope you will join us in our mission to democratize AI and to use its transformative powers to enact real, positive and lasting change.
