SingularityNET, a blockchain firm specializing in artificial intelligence (AI), has formed a partnership with research and development firm Dfinity Foundation to enable decentralized applications (DApps) on the Internet computer blockchain to access large language models (LLMs) and improve the infrastructure of decentralized AI.

The companies announced the commencement of a joint initiative to integrate the SingularityNET marketplace with the ICP blockchain on November 20.

As per a statement provided, the primary objective of the initiative is to rectify the opaqueness surrounding the training data of AI tools, which is a consequence of its centralized structure.

The decentralization of AI models, according to the two businesses, will render them transparent and tamper-resistant.

Blockchain developers who wish to establish a connection with AI can utilize the ICP network through this partnership.

The announcement emphasized that smart contracts are utilized to execute decentralized AI models on ICP, rendering the LLMs’ training parameters open source and tamper-resistant.

In conjunction with the blockchain integration, the grant programs of the two organizations will also be linked.

The announcement states that the purpose of this is to “encourage community developer participation” and provide resources that can be utilized to promote decentralized AI.

Ben Goertzel, the chief executive officer of SingularityNET, emphasized that numerous experts anticipate that artificial intelligence (AI) will surpass human-level artificial general intelligence (AGI) within the coming years.He elaborated:

“Given this context, it’s extremely important that we move rapidly toward making the most advanced AI systems on the planet available via decentralized networks, not owned or controlled by any elite group, Big Tech company or government agency.”

In the interim, according to Dominic Williams, the founder of the Dfinity Foundation, initiatives utilizing AI on the ICP blockchain have increased since the foundation announced a $5 million grant in July.

As per Williams’ assertion, the collaboration with SingularityNET will serve to propel their aspiration for decentralized AI forward.
