In January, the decentralized artificial intelligence firm SingularityNET announced a partnership with agriculture-focused blockchain startup Hara. The blockchain startup will provide useful details such as prices of grain, soil quality and ownership and land details.
SingularityNET was under global limelight as being the developer of Hansan Robotics. The robotics firm’s chief scientist, Ben Goertzel, is also SingularityNET’s founder and CEO.
