人工智能的价值和力量每年都在急剧增长，并很快将主宰互联网。和整个经济。但是，今天的AI工具被封闭的开发环境所分割，大部分是由一家公司开发来完成一项任务的，无法将两种工具连接在一起。 SingularityNET旨在成为人工智能和机器学习工具联网以形成协调的人工智能的关键协议。 SingularityNET是一个开放源代码协议，是一个分布式AI服务市场的智能合约。在这个框架内，人工智能的好处成为全球公共基础设施，造福所有人;任何人都可以访问AI技术或成为其发展的利益相关者。任何人都可以添加一个AI /机器学习服务到SingularityNET供网络使用，并接收网络支付令牌作为交换。 SingularityNET得到了SingularityNET基金会的支持，该基金会认为人工智能的好处不应该被任何一小撮强大的机构所统治，而是被所有人共享。 SingularityNET的一个关键目标是确保技术是仁慈的，符合人类的标准，网络旨在激励和奖励有益的玩家。

Hundreds APIs get published every month; therefore, this market is highly competitive. There are both big players(Amazon, Google, Facebook, IBM, Microsoft), as well as small ones(Nara Logics, Clarifai, Algorithmia, Bonseyes) trying to capture the market of "AI for all".
Currently, the Alpha version of SingularityNET is engineered by team, it should be launched in December 2017 The proposed model does not yet have commercial viability. SingularityNet will not charge any transaction fees for the platform usage. This questions the commercial viability of the project. The main challenge for the company will be the creation of API’s that will be used by large audience. Also, SingularityNET will have to compete with Google, Amazon, etc solutions already available in the market. What is more, main focus on particular areas of AI application in the beginning (language processing, biomedical analytics, image processing, finance and robot dialogue) could make SingularityNet growth across other AI applicable areas weaker. SingularityNet aims to raise 36M USD hard cap during its token sale event. This is above the average round rasied among the projects of the same stage. The company will sale up to 500M tokens out of 1B. It gives the total token pool valuation around $70M which is above the average valuation of the same stage companies. SingularityNET plans to hold 18% of tokens as bonus for the core team which gives about $13M as the team bonus. This sum is not connected to any KPI's.
The team has solid background only in a few areas related to the core product. There are people who have strong track record in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and related areas. SingularityNET has strong technologists but does not have people with high-level management experience. Currently, there are no people with previous management experience in large corporations at SingularityNet. Moreover, all of the technologists worked only in small- or mid-size companies before joining SingularityNET. This could lead to the difficulties with the scalability of the project.
SingularityNet is among the most fascinating companies to date, skillfully utilizing the hype surrounding AI technologies in general, and the creations of Hanson Robotics (the robot Sophia) in particular.The idea of creating a store (base API for API) is nothing new (just think back to Apple Store), but what’s definitely a new development is filling the store with “self-negotiating” AI-applications working based on an AI-as-a-Service model.SingularityNet documents site one AI-application’s ability to buy, sell and reuse knowledge, received by other AI-products, which is definitely something fresh and exciting. The AGI token economy also seems quite reasonable, unifying and simplifying interaction of all participants and allowing for rapid peer-to-peer payments.We consider SingularityNet to be worthy of attention. And we expect the coming ICO should demonstrate the interest of the community in this project.
