4Decentralize Computing! Before It's Too Late.

10:40 am - 11:00 am

As the 21st century develops, we face existential challenges of greater and greater risk. Will our future be free, safe, and open? Computing and the Internet have become humanity's world-wide nervous system. We have a chance to dramatically improve our capabilities; we have a chance to establish a secure, free, and lasting internet. Ethereum, IPFS, and Filecoin are at the forefront of this charge, pushing the frontiers of computing infrastructure tech. A new layer of infrastructure is emerging, and what's more, it can have long-lasting impact. But will it? Will we decentralize our infrastructure? Will you rise up to Free Computing?

7Can we build a surveillance-free internet?

12:05 pm - 12:25 pm

What if every action you took, every movement you made, every message you sent was monitored? What if tomorrow martial law was declared and the Patriot Act 2.0 was enacted? How would you organize a Revolution? In this talk I explore how decentralized technologies can challenge centralized forms of power and control. I also describe our new project: Orchid which is providing censorship and surveillance free access to the Internet for everyone. Data privacy should not be a privilege, but a universal right.

18The SingularityNET: Bringing AGI and Blockchain Together to Build an Open Economy of Abundance

4:10 pm - 4:30 pm

As AI and robots become the dominant tech on the planet, and narrow AI gives way to Artificial General Intelligence — who will guide these developments, and who will benefit? To work toward the common good, the best path forward is to grow a decentralized network of AIs, to which everyone can freely contribute, and from which everyone can benefit and profit. To achieve this dream requires robust integration of multiple technologies including AI, robotics and blockchain. Toward this end an international team of researchers, developers and visionaries have come together to create the SingularityNET, a decentralized autonomous organization of AIs, providing next-generation AI-as-a-service to numerous vertical markets and providing a breeding ground for benevolent AGI. This talk will be given by a unique human-robot team: Dr. Ben Goertzel, CEO and founder of SingularityNET; and Sophia the Robot, the world's most emotionally expressive humanoid robot and a living testbed for SingularityNET technology.
