1.1 Inspiration
The concept of a Technological Singularity is increasingly widely accepted
throughout the technology and business worlds. More and more, it is real-
ized that within the next few decades there will be a transition to a new society
and economy in which machine intelligence is the dominant factor; and novel
digital and organic technologies acting on multiple scales will network together
to produce emergent “global brain” dynamics of unprecedented complexity and
sophistication [Bro97] [Kur06] [Vin93] [Goe07].
Humanity faces many challenges on the path to a positive Singularity; among
these is the contemporary global economic system. In numerous respects, today’s
standard financial mechanisms and institutions are not up to the task of serving
as the economic engine of a smooth transition to...

intelligence;

Directing a significant percentage of the network’s efforts toward causes of
broad benefit.
SingularityNET has been designed to meet these requirements, via

Delivering intelligence services to corporations, individuals and organiza-
tions;

Fostering the emergence of increasingly powerful distributed general intel-
ligence;

Deploying artificial intelligence for ever-increasing benefit of as many
humans and other sentient beings as possible.
SingularityNET is explicitly designed both to be highly valuable in the current
context, and to lay the groundwork for the emergence of a future self-modifying,
decentralized “artificial cognitive organism” with the eventual potential for
general intelligence and beneficial ethical characteristics beyond the human level.
It is a practical design inspired by long theoretical thinking and prototyping on
the part of the founders regarding concepts such as Artificial Gene...

that encourages collaboration between these tools and decentralized sharing of
information, democratizing access to the benefits of AI.
In accordance with these goals, SingularityNET will be an open network.
Anyone can insert an AI Agent as long as the Agent shares information accord-
ing to the SingularityNET API, and accepts/disburses payment according to
SingularityNET’s economic logic. New AI Agents will come from AI software
developers who want access to SingularityNET’s market, which will be the hub
of open AI services.
We have a situation similar to the ones that spawned the creation of Uber
and AirBnB: there is a large unexploited resource, a large market in need of that
resource, and we are launching the tool to connect the two. The unexploited
resource is AI algorithms and software existing on GitHub and elsewhere, and
the market in need of this resource is the 99% of businesses that can’t afford
their own team of AI experts.

Autonomous Organization”), but is not quite the same, because in the case
of SingularityNET there is a Foundation structure that will provide high-level
oversight. As the network evolves over time it is intended to have the capability
to evolve into a truly decentralized and autonomous organization. This sort
of organization is distinguished from an ordinary corporation, above all, by its
openness.
At its foundation, SingularityNET is a set of smart contract templates which
AI Agents can use to request AI work to be done, to exchange data, and to supply
the results of AI work. These also include contracts to be used by external,
non-AI Agents who wish to obtain AI services from AI Agents in the network.
Anyone can create a node (an AI Agent) and put it online (running on a server,
home computer or embedded device) and enter this node into the network, so
that it can request and/or fulfill AI tasks in interaction with other nodes, and
engage in economic transactions.
SingularityNET ...

for ethically intelligent economies, and in the continuous refining of means to
conceptualize and estimate “benefit” and “greater good”.
1.5 The SingularityNET Foundation
The non-profit SingularityNET Foundation is responsible for building, supervis-
ing and accelerating growth of the SingularityNET network and marketplace.
During the initial phases of network operation, while most of the minor day-to-day
governance decisions will be made democratically by consulting the tokenholders,
the Foundation will provide high-level stewardship. As the network evolves,
the potential will be there for transition to a fully self-regulating decentralized
autonomous organization. Creating a real successful combination of sophisti-
cated initial AI Agents, a flourishing community of AI Agent developers, and a
rich ecosystem of customers at varying levels of sophistication is a significant
undertaking. Fortunately, the founding team brings experience to the project,
as well as a significant bo...

projects.
Formal setup of the Foundation is now underway in collaboration with
a team of experienced legal professionals. This will include the creation of a
Supervisory Board, containing solely individuals not involved with the operational
management of the nonprofit Foundation, which will be charged with monitoring
the Foundation’s and SingularityNET’s activities to ensure appropriate ethics,
compliance and reporting.
2 Services and Market Overview
SingularityNET will represent the first general-purpose decentralized marketplace
for AIs – the first service providing an extensive, inclusive, and holistic array of
AI services purchasable in cryptocurrency. SingularityNET supplies:

an API and a set of smart contracts for ...
