An innovative collaboration has emerged in the AI sector. SingularityNET (AGIX), a leading AI platform developer headquartered in Zug, Switzerland, and Trace Labs, the core development company of OriginTrail based in Hong Kong, have announced a strategic partnership aimed at supporting the development of the Knowledge Layer — the Internet of Knowledge, according to SingularityNET.

Decentralized Ecosystem for AI

This partnership signifies that two prominent players in the AI industry have come together to support a decentralized ecosystem where AI agents and infrastructure partners collaborate within the decentralized knowledge graph (DKG) landscape. OriginTrail is an ecosystem dedicated to building a Verifiable Internet for AI. This partnership marks the beginning of their collaboration with SingularityNET’s leading AI platform and robust ecosystem.

Key Highlights of the Partnership

Trace Labs is tasked with developing sophisticated infrastructure that allows for efficient access and retrieval of information stored on the DKG. This effort is aimed at tackling challenges such as AI hallucinations, bias, and model collapse due to an explosion in the amount of synthetic data produced by AI. The goal is to enhance the functionality and responsiveness of the decentralized knowledge graph within the OriginTrail network.

SingularityNET will provide users access to its decentralized platform, where specialized AI models and Large Language Models (LLMs) can be purchased and used for data analysis. These models are designed to operate seamlessly with the data supported by the OriginTrail network, fostering a more robust ecosystem. The company will also develop AI models that can be trained directly on the Decentralized Knowledge Graph. This approach helps realize the shared vision of the two partners; eliminating the need for data centralization and leveraging the decentralized nature of the blockchain to enhance privacy and security.

Strategic Goals and Vision

Leveraging SingularityNET’s leading position in mission-critical research of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) and Trace Labs’ experience in commercializing Web3 and AI solutions, the strategic partnership aims to solve real-world challenges with decentralized AI within key sectors such as Industry 4.0, decentralized science (DeSci), real-world assets (RWA), and education.

Dr. Ben Goertzel, CEO of SingularityNET, stated, “As we move from an Internet of documents, media and apps to an internet of knowledge and AI, the basic composition of the Internet as a ‘decentralized network of decentralized networks’ becomes ever more important. Both SingularityNET and Trace Labs have powerful capability to grow decentralized networks around knowledge graphs and associated AI capabilities; connecting these networks together into a cross-linked, cross-token meta-network will yield a host of different synergies enabling a broad-based boost in intelligent functionality.”

Žiga Drev, Managing Director of Trace Labs, added, “The benefits of AI are limitless and so are the risks, like hallucinations and model collapse as the growth in synthetic data outpaces the provision of real world data. A truly open AI that fosters inclusion and a more equitable distribution of value can only be achieved through a collaborative and modular approach. We are proud to partner with SingularityNET.”

Collaborative Efforts

Both organizations will engage in collaborative marketing and social media efforts to promote their partnership and the innovations it brings to the blockchain world and the AI industry. The two partners are also mutually exploring and plan to integrate AI services into Trace Labs’ DKG and paranets.

The partnership is about working together to solve the challenges of tomorrow; synergizing blockchains and knowledge graphs for safe, verifiable AI that emphasizes secure and privacy-preserving mechanisms for user authentication and authorization within the knowledge layer, ultimately ensuring all data processing by users is rooted in their consent.
