Press Releases

Brussels, Belgium, June 26th, 2024, Chainwire

The Open AGI Summit, organized by Sentient and Symbolic Capital and sponsored by Amazon Web Services (AWS) will bring together top thought leaders in Decentralized AI like Sandeep Nailwal, Joey Krug, and Juan Bennet.

Amidst the rapid advancement of artificial general intelligence (AGI) systems, concerns escalate over a limited group’s dominance of centralized AI, posing significant risks. Open AGI Summit aims to gather prominent AI and blockchain professionals to deliberate on open governance models through blockchain for safer, transparent AGI development aligned with the public interest.

Sandeep Nailwal, Co-Founder of Polygon and Sentient, articulates the critical junction humanity faces with centralized AI, advocating for an Open World enabled by blockchain for transparency and fairness over a Closed World dominated by mega-corporations: “The rapid acceleration of centralized AI and its integration into everyday life has led humanity to a crossroads between two future world. On the one hand, we have the choice of a Closed World. This world is controlled by a few, closed-source models run by massive mega-corporations. On the other hand, we have the choice of an Open World. In this world, models are default open-source, inference is verifiable, and value flows back to the stakeholders. The Open World is the world we want to live in, but it is only possible by leveraging blockchain to make AI more transparent and just.”
