FinanceFeeds Editorial Team

Sentient and Symbolic Capital’s Decentralized AGI Summit will feature leading Decentralized AI authorities like Vitalik Buterin and Sandeep Nailwal.

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

Sandeep Nailwal, Co-Founder of Polygon Labs, 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 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.”

Scheduled for February 26th, 3-9 pm MST, the summit is accessible to the public via

Kenzi Wang, Co-Founder and General Partner at Symbolic Capital, highlights the significance of the event in uniting AI and web3 luminaries to advance on this pivotal technological area: “We are excited to help facilitate this important discussion around the development of safe and ethical AGI systems that leverage decentralization and multi-stakeholder governance. Bringing luminaries across both the AI and web3 domains together will help push forward thinking on this critical technological frontier.”

Sentient is developing a decentralized AGI platform with a team of web3 pioneers, aiming for trustless, open AI models. Symbolic Capital, backing top web3 initiatives globally, brings its founders’ blockchain expertise to support its portfolio companies.
