Artificial Intelligence researcher Ben Goertzel has spent the past 3 decades working in the field of Artificial Intelligence. He coined the term Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) to differentiate a sentient, cognizant computer from a machine capable of narrowly intelligent behavior in confined areas. Dr. Goertzel has founded the OPenCOG foundation designed to promote open AGI development, and he currently is the Chief Scientist of Hanson Robotics as well as the author of numerous books and Journal articles. During the past several months Goertzel has concentrated his efforts on launching an open marketplace for AI programs and services. This marketplace, called SingularityNET, is designed to offer AI services to customers and to encourage the development of beneficial AGI. Alongside SingularityNET, a cryptocurrency called AGI Coin will be unveiled, with the Initial Coin Offering (ICO)taking place on December 19, 2017. In an interview with Sander Olson for Next Big Future, Goertzel discusses SingularityNET, AGI Coin, and why he believes that toddler-level AI will be achieved by 2030.
