Singularity Institute Method For Raising Funds For Artificial Intelligence Research Is Completely "Inside The Box"

Published on June 27, 2007 at 9:50 AM

A challenge has been launched to get people interested in donating to the Singularity Institute for Artificial Intelligence (SIAI). The SIAI is focussed on developing artificial intelligence (AI) that can be used in speeding up developments in fields including nanotechnology. Their goal is to create a model that is has intelligence at the level that it can self improve. This is known as singularity.

The co-founder of Paypal, Peter Thiel, has promised to match donations of up to $400,000 sent to the SIAI by July 6th. A supporter of the SIAI has requested people send him old DVDs and videos so they can be sold on EBay with the funds raised going to the SIAI.
