AIShield Fund


The AIShield Fund is used to turn our AIShield program into reality.
While we won’t be funding the purchase of massive supercomputers, ginormous teams of programmers, or research into quantum computers and other computing breakthroughs in the near future, we can do something today.
Currently this fund’s goal is to donate $10,000 to OpenCog. The Open Cognition Framework (OpenCog) is software for the collaborative development of safe and beneficial Artificial General Intelligence.
OpenCog provides research scientists and software developers with a common platform to build and share artificial intelligence programs. The framework includes:

  • a flexible and highly optimized in-memory database for knowledge representation,
  • a plug-in architecture for cognitive algorithms and a cognitive process scheduler,
  • a built-in LISP-like programming language, and
  • other components to support artificial intelligence research and development.
OpenCog is lead by Dr. Ben Goertzel together with colleagues from the Singularity Institute for Artificial Intelligence, Novamente LLC, and other organizations and individuals.
Every dollar contributed towards the creation of Friendly AGI (Artificial General Intelligence) will benefit an almost uncountable number of intelligent entities because of a domino effect. A wide range of problems that face mankind, from disease to hunger to energy supplies, will benefit from this research.
