Game-Changing Partnership for Massively Transformative Impact! EARTHwise and SingularityNET agree to enter into a landmark strategic partnership for taking on the wicked challenges of our time together and accelerating societal transformation. EARTHwise’s renowned living systems solutions for systemic transformation, brought together with SingularityNET’s state-of-the-art AI technology, set the stage of a partnership that will push the boundaries of what’s possible in the realms of AI, gaming, civilizational transformation, and decentralized governance.
SingularityNET was founded by Dr. Ben Goertzel with the mission of creating a decentralized Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), that is open for anyone, and not restricted to the narrow goals of a single corporation or even a single country. SingularityNET is the world’s leading decentralized AI Platform and hosts a fully-fledged AI ecosystem with a rich community all working toward the global distribution of AI. It is the first and only decentralized platform that will allow AIs to cooperate and coordinate at scale, while enabling anyone to assemble custom AI processes from a global network of AI algorithms, services, and agents.
EARTHwise was founded by Dr. Anneloes Smitsman with the mission to catalyze the necessary inner and outer transformations for human thriving in harmony with our planet, for generations to come. Providing pioneering solutions based on the evolutionary capacities of living systems, as well as systemic design and leadership that enhance the wellbeing of our planet and future generations. The latest initiative, and current focus, of EARTHwise is the development of an open-world immersive action-game that empowers younger generations with the tools and solutions for improving their lives and our world. This is also the context that brought both organizations together in this strategic new partnership.
The agreed collaboration further serves the individual and mutual success of both organizations in achieving our shared vision. Together driving transformative change and collaboration through multiple areas, including the following listed here below:
SingularityNET and EARTHwise will explore a plethora of mutual opportunities to accelerate the implementation of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals through decentralized AI, gamification, and Web3 technologies. The partnership aims to engage local governments, institutions, businesses, and impact investors in driving positive change.
Through this process, the partnership will also accelerate the necessary transformations for humanity’s sustainable development across the world. The synergy of AI advancements with EARTHwise’s living systems architecture has the ultimate goal of benefitting society as a whole.
SingularityNET is dedicated to the creation of decentralized, beneficial, benevolent AGI. The two organizations have expressed their interest in co-developing a Constitution for Benevolent Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) based on the EARTHwise Constitution principles for co-creating thriving worlds and futures. This entails creating decentralized economies within the EARTHwise game, as well as working together to explore innovative models of governance and regenerative economies.
SingularityNET will play a key role in the further development of the EARTHwise game environment. Through this collaboration, the two organizations envision the integration of AI components, user-generated content tools, and immersive gaming experiences. This partnership also has the potential to further enhance the Sophia AI and the Sophia AI Metaverse, also known as Sophiaverse.
CEO of SingularityNET Dr. Ben Goertzel, expressed his excitement about the transformative potential of this partnership.
“As we move forward toward a new era of human-AI synergy, some of the biggest challenges ahead have to do with the human heart and soul rather than the particulars of technology. How can we find meaning, individually and collectively, when our machine creations are rapidly becoming more capable than we are in so many senses? How can we come together and use our collective feeling and wisdom as well as our intellectual and scientific minds to forge a path through the Singularity together?
These challenges are not simple nor even necessarily fully "solvable" in a traditional sense, but the process of confronting them together will be much of the solution... and this process itself will require new innovations at the intersection of technology, media and social psychology.
EARTHwise, a game environment that is also much more than that, is one of the more ambitious initiatives in this direction that I've seen. It provides a unique playground for experimentation with diverse means of interaction among human and AI players and complex futuristic environments. EARTHwise's metaverse gameplay will bring the player a compelling and exciting experience, interwoven with a deeply stimulating process of fleshing out ideas and intuitions about how to cope with the crazy and amazing future we're creating."
CEO of EARTHwise Centre, Dr. Anneloes Smitsman, also shared that excitement by saying:
“We are on the brink of catalytic tipping points that are radically changing our lives. This collaboration between EARTHwise and SingularityNET will significantly enhance our collective capacities for supporting our world in transformation. These rapidly shifting times require that we become a wiser and not just ‘smarter’ species. I believe that this co-creative partnership between our organizations embodies what that shift in consciousness and action is all about.
Underlying the sustainability crisis are the ‘Moloch’ game dynamics that incentivise that we sacrifice long-term collective wellbeing for short-term personal gain. The Moloch game is an old game that humanity has been hooked on for far too long, and which leads to civilizational collapse. We have the power to change this, which is precisely why we decided to create an EARTHwise Game for transforming the dominant Moloch games that hijack our greater human potential. SIngularityNET is bringing essential AI, AGI, and Metaverse capabilities to the EARTHwise game environments, which in turn through the Human-AI synergies of the game will accelerate the development of decentralized benevolent AGI. Empowering in particular the younger generations with the tools and solutions for positively contributing to their lives and our world.
Furthermore, our shared commitment to co-develop a first-of-its-kind Constitution for Benevolent AGI, is perhaps one of the most important contributions of this partnership to humanity’s rapidly changing worlds.”
With over 3 billion gamers worldwide, and the majority of them young adults, we have a tremendous opportunity AND responsibility to harness the power of gaming for transformative impact. Critical planetary tipping points are now in motion; the need for transformative collective action has never been greater.
The EARTHwise Game is designed to empower and inspire younger generations to become game-changers for our world in transformation. It blends together cutting-edge technologies, benevolent AI integrations, and consciousness-enhancing narratives and actions for personal and collective transformation.
The game addresses the root causes of the sustainability crisis and gamifies the values and living systems principles of the EARTHwise Constitution for a Planetary Civilization. Offering a unique experience that merges virtual and real-life quests, so that your actions within the game will empower you in real-life to become a game changer for world transformation.
We are currently developing the first basic prototype for this game in collaboration with our partners. The game builds on our decades of award-winning leadership, research, and programs for human development and systemic transformation. Addressing the root causes of the sustainability crisis, by creating solutions for the massive coordination failures and misalignments of existing systems and institutions.
Offering real-world challenges, mind-shifting quests, and social communities for taking on the greatest challenges of our time, together.
Through the integration of benevolent AI and advanced technologies, players unlock a wealth of innovative tools and strategies for catalyzing personal, collective, and civilizational transformation.
The EARTHwise Game represents a revolutionary approach to gaming—one that transcends entertainment and empowers players to become catalysts for a better world. As the first prototype takes shape in collaboration with our partners, we look forward to sharing more details and inviting the global gaming community to join us on this transformative journey.
