Fall 2018

Credits: 3

This fall 2018 collab will explore the emerging space of AI and AGI deployed on blockchain systems, and will develop projects through design research, concept, proof of concept, code, and visualization. The course will start with a 3-4 week intensive to establish what is generally at stake in AI development across disciplines. Projects will then be designed in a ‘collab studio’ context, and prototype what the applications, interfaces, functions, clients, and economies can be in the near term [5-7 years] as blockchain based AI ecosystems and economies emerge. We have a remarkable opportunity as our outside sponsors/partners are OpenCog and SingularityNET. We will have a hands on workshop we will host with the sponsors partway through the semester, led by Ben Goertzel and his associates. This workshop will conclude with a one day conference bringing luminaries in AI, AGI, and blockchain systems together. The collaboration builds on a longer term set of projects and events developed by Ed Keller and Ben Goertzel, hosted by CTM & The New School, including the 2016 Future of Mind symposium [ ]; the 2016 Human Level AI conferences which Goertzel and the AGI Society organized [ ]; and the 2011 Transhumanism Meets Design conference, co-chaired by Keller and Natasha Vita More.
