In this kick off of CrossOver: AI 2020 Jeff Clune talk about the Great Acceleration and the future of AGI, or Artificial General Intelligence.

The pandemic has accelerated the pace of digital change. More than ever, we need to use AI innovations to stimulate economic growth, build a healthier society and create business opportunities.

Presentation:
Artificial General Intelligence by Jeff Clune, Research Team Leader, OpenAI

Yannic Kilcher explains this white paper on SingularityNET.

Big Tech is currently dominating the pursuit of ever more capable AI. This happens behind closed doors and results in a monopoly of power.

SingularityNET is an open, decentralized network where anyone can offer and consume AI services, and where AI agents can interlink with each other to provide ever more sophisticated AI, with the goal to create a singularity that’s beneficial for humanity. This video takes a look at the basics behind SingularityNET and some of its core components.

Lex Fridman interviews Chris Lattner, a world-class software & hardware engineer, leading projects at Apple, Tesla, Google, and SiFive.
