In December 2022, VERSES AI set forth a sweeping vision for artificial intelligence based on a distributed, collective real-time knowledge graph, comprised of Intelligent Agents operating on the physics of intelligence itself. In their whitepaper, titled “Designing Ecosystems of Intelligence from First Principles,” they propose a profound departure from standard notions of AI as a monolithic system. This groundbreaking new artificial intelligence paradigm is gaining momentum, thanks to a major discovery proving its underlying scientific theory – the Free Energy Principle (FEP) by the world’s most cited neuroscientist, Dr. Karl J. Friston.
Dr. Karl J. Friston is the most cited neuroscientist in the world, celebrated for his work in brain imaging and physics inspired brain theory. He also happens to be the Chief Scientist at VERSES AI, working on an entirely new kind of AI called Active Inference AI, based on the Free Energy Principle (FEP) — Karl’s theory that has just been proven by researchers in Japan to explain how the brain learns.
“Our results suggest that the free-energy principle is the self-organizing principle of biological neural networks.”

I recently sat down with Daniel Friedman, president of the Active Inference Institute. The insights from this conversation promise to shine a light on the curious realm of active inference and its potential to reshape our understanding of decision-making processes and the future of AI.
Talking AI benefits and dangers, AI Governance, as well as how to deal with the transition period for humanity between now & achieving AGI, and ultimately ASI.
