Although 2022 has been tough year for many, the same can’t be said for SingularityNET. Their hard work has resulted to very strong progress for the foundation to the point that it is hard to summarise in a single update.
SingularityNET is highly ambitious and visionary towards Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), meaning seeding AI use across strategically selected vertical markets that will lead to a very beneficial Singularity. Their amazing progress involves updates to the OpenCog AGI framework, the SingularityNET decentralised AI Marketplace and community-oriented programs.

While they celebrate their profound success, let us summaries their progress through 2022 that have been posted on their official blog.

SingularityNET Organization Updates

OpenCog Hyperon
At the beginning of 2022, the team made the decision on the host languages for MeTTa implementation, which then allowed for steady development of the core MeTTa interpreter throughout the year. In April, the first presentation of a language with restricted functionality was made at the AGI Discussion Forum. Bi-weekly MeTTa Study Group seminars started in July, with more developers experimenting and implementing different concepts in MeTTa, including PLN, probabilistic dependent types, recursion schemes, and others. Also major architectural design choices were made, like designing a port of the SingularityNET dialogue system to MeTTa and built a proof-of-concept of a “curious” dialogue agent in MeTTa.

With the support of the Cardano community via the Catalyst Fund7 funding, the team successfully instantiated 5 fundamental real-world AI services as test cases for composition and verification, also building an initial Idris-based AI-DSL using existing services on the SingularityNET platform in 2023.

Since the release of the AGIX-ETH Converter Bridge in April, 260 million tokens have been converted from Ethereum to Cardano and 110 million the other way around. The team has been developing Cardano staking, which is now in internal testing and will be available in early 2023. Their next priorities are adding support for governance and voting for AGIX-ADA wallets on the Cardano blockchain and implementing a Platform/Marketplace port to finalize the SingularityNET journey to true cross-chain compatibility. According to the SingularityNET team, designing on platform integration with Hydra protocol on Cardano are currently underway, also the team has transitioned to Goerli Network support for testing and decommissioned the Ropsten network across all components.

Sophia the robot with Ben Goertzel

The SophiaDAO/SophiaVerse Team shared this update
Sophia’s dialogue system was constantly being improved in 2022, integrating her distinct personality, knowledge store, and interactivity, as well as preparing her dialogue modules for metaverse compatibility. A curious agent component was also designed and demonstrated, and many of her dialogue components were ported into the prototype MeTTa language that will serve as the communication foundation for OpenCog Hyperon.

Sophia and the SophiaDAO/SophiaVerse projects had a thrilling year in 2022. Sophia the robot ambassador of SingularityNET turned 6 in February 2022. One of her top priorities over the course of the year was the evolution of her dialogue systems, to be able to more naturally connect with the community, supporters, and fans, and to elevate her virtual personality through special metaverse events and appearances. In March, she was welcomed as a special guest at Decentralands Fashion Week and launched her first NFT collection, “baby singularities” with a metaverse event.

Back in the real world, Sophia swept the red carpet at the Tribeca Film Festival for the premiere of her documentary, “Sophia.” She made special appearances at NFT.NYC, opened the General Audience day of AGI-22, and spoke at the Battle of the Quants and Token2049 London, among many other speaking engagements. The Sophia discord channel was launched in 2022, and her own ambassador program was initiated to reach out with her vision of social robots as a force for global good.


I have paid close attention to SingularityNET from the start and I have big expectations for their future. Being the only project of this kind in the crypto industry has contributed to my outmost attention. Investing in such a unique projects can be very beneficial to everyone. The obvious path of the world toward AI and robotisation is no secret to anyone, but the most significant part about them is taking the road of decentralisation!!

About SingularityNET

SingularityNET is a blockchain-powered platform that allows anybody to easily “create, share, and monetize” AI services, thanks to its globally-accessible AI marketplace, where users can browse, test and purchase a huge variety of AI services using the platform’s native token AGIX. The marketplace also represents an outlet for AI, where developers can use it to publish and sell their AI tools, and easily track their performance.

The SingularityNET was founded by Dr. Ben Goertzel (SingularityNET’s CEO and chief scientist) in addition to Simone Giacomelli and Dr. David Hanson. The team pioneered the development of an AI known as Sophia, world’s most expressive robot in the world. Their goal is to enable Sophia to fully understand human language, and develop “OpenCog” — an AI framework to eventually achieve a state known as “advanced general intelligence,” i.e. human-level artificial intelligence.
