Ed. note: Does pedophilia allow those involved with building A.I. technology to experiment with the very extremes in human emotions through pedophilia? While we are mesmerized by all this rapidly accelerating technology, what else is going on that might be of concern? Let’s take a look…
Science Funder Jeffrey Epstein Launches Radical Emotional Software For The Gaming Industry
by Drew Hendricks | October 2, 2013
Contributor I cover what entrepreneurs are looking to learn.
Virtual gaming is about to warp through a black hole, thanks to a band of scientists in Hong Kong and a hedge funder with a zealous science background, called Jeffrey Epstein. Indeed, game programming is moving away from algorithmic robots to a twilight realm of emotional thinkers, taking online, video and toy entrepreneurs, one step closer to Star Trek’s ‘Holodeck’.
For years, in virtual gaming, the only intelligent player was the person playing the game, responding to non-reactive obstacles. At most, opponents could blow up or morph into something else. Whatever the reaction, it was a simple linear or algorithmic response (if A, then B, if A+D, then C).
By the 1970’s, opponents became more complex with the development of virtual chess, where the program responded to a vast network of algorithmic possibilities: up to 10123 chess board variations to be exact. But even in those scenarios, the program remains purely reactive and deterministic: it does not have any goals, nor does it aim for check mate, but simply responds to a series of steps that lead to that direction.
Today’s gaming characters from virtual soldiers to Tinkerbell are also vastly more complex than their dash line tennis, Pac Man or Pong forbearers. Like the chess program, virtual soldiers can react to a wide variation of landscape scenarios and respond in a myriad of ways, based on each case.
The Artificial Intelligence (AI) group in Hong Kong behind this new emotive software is called Open Cog. As an open-source foundation, Open Cog (‘Cognition for All’) lead by co-founder Ben Goertzel, develops programming language for the AI community to share, in what is still a very fragmented field. However, in efforts to map the architecture of the human mind, Open Cog also programed three game characters, a ghost, a robot and a girl that push past traditional gaming algorithms:
Each character has programmed into them a database called an AtomSpace. AtomSpace consists of hundreds of ‘atoms’ which are knowledge concepts such as objects (chair, table, shelf), actions (sitting, running, singing) and feelings (anger, joy, fear). Every time an algorithm, called MindAgents, leads a character to more than one an atom, the associative link gets stronger, influencing the characters’ future pathway choices. In this sense, a character builds and incorporates associative memory. At the same time, links can decay over time if not used by algorithms, weakening a character’s memory.
Another unique feature is the use of several algorithms functioning at the same time, called, “cognitive synergy“. The theory behind this synergy is that humans have multiple thought processes going on simultaneously, prioritizing one’s over others in order to function.
OpenPsi, inspired by AI scientist Joscha Bach in Berlin, is another program built into these novel characters. OpenPsi governs a character’s basic needs and thus which pathway to take. OpenPsi is based on German psychologist Dietrich Dörner’s theory that animal behavior is driven by five basic needs: existence preservation (food, water, body integrity—avoidance of pain), species preservation (sexuality, reproduction), affiliation (need to belong to a group, social interaction), certainty (need to predict events and their consequences), competence (capacity to master problems and tasks). Each of these needs gets filled or depleted based on time and interaction with various atoms. The status of a need has a significant impact on which pathways a character chooses to take. For example, if the need for water is extremely high, a character will prioritize a water atom in its pathway choice.
For entrepreneurs, Open Cog, together with M Lab from Hong Kong Polytechnic University, supplies a software toolkit to incorporate their characters into whatever applications the market is using: from virtual landscapes to toys and even robots. As a showcase, Open Cog has also developed its own 3D landscape for its characters to function in, inspired largely by the popular building game called Minecraft.
Open Cog’s goals differ from the gaming industry which is already lining up to exploit the new software. While it intends to make a profit, they are primarily interested in using a virtual platform to test their hypothesis about the mind. “The disparity between these models and our experience of the mind is an invaluable guide to follow,” Jeffrey Epstein remarked, the financial guru behind this effort, along with the Hong Kong government and Hong Kong Polytechnic University. “It’s somewhat like building a car, with no instructions, but our impression of what a car can do.”
Over the last ten years, Jeffrey Epstein has become one of the largest backers of cutting edge science around the world. According to New York Magazine, Epstein has donated up to $200 million a year to eminent scientists, including: Stephen Hawking, Marvin Minsky, Eric Lander, George Church, and Nobel laureate physicists Gerard’t Hooft, David Gross, and Frank Wilczek. Like Open Cog, Epstein is motivated by learning more about the mind, versus creating a new start-up product. He currently sits on the board of the Mind, Brain and Behavior Committee at Harvard. In 2003, Epstein founded the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics at Harvard University, with a $30 million dollar gift to the university. The Program studies the mathematical evolution of micro-biology and has made key discoveries into the treatment of cancer, HIV and other infectious diseases.

Ed. note: Yuri Milner who is an Israeli-Russian engineer is also linked to Hong Kong with Ben Goertzel’s OpenCog research group. Interestingly enough, Yuri Milner is invested in Jared Kushner’s real estate firm Cadre. Milner had “sizeable early stakes” in early investments in both Facebook and Twitter. All these people including Jeffrey Epstein, Peter Thiel, Ben Goertzel and Yuri Milner are connected in some way through the development of artificial intelligence and private equity firms that are invested in this technology. All this is being built on private networks so these people can share “stuff” with private equity firms keeping where they invest their money pretty much under tight wraps.
In a paper “Atlantis Thinking Machines Volume 5” written by Ben Goertzel, Cassio Pennachin and Nil Geisweiller, in the section titled “Engineering General Intelligence, Part 1: A Path to Advanced AGI via Embodied Learning and Cognitive Synergy with contributions by the OpenCog Team”, in the Acknowledgements on page xi, Goertzel thanks Jeffery Epstein for his “visionary funding”:
“Jeffrey Epstein, whose visionary funding of my AGI research has helped me through a number of tight spots over the years. At time of writing, Jeffrey is helping support the OpenCog Hong Kong project.”
OpenCog develops the software for A.I. “cognitive systems” (cognitive emotional software) interface so people on the internet are fooled into thinking they are talking with real people, when in reality it is artificial intelligence (A.I.) they are interacting with like with QAnon (A.I. experimental emotional cognition). Systems being incrementally tested to see if A.I. is being accepted by the public. If the public doesn’t reject the A.I., then it is perfectly acceptable. But what if the foundation of this A.I. technology is flawed and never corrected?
“Two degrees of separation between Peter Thiel and Jeffrey Epstein, who was an important financier of transhumanist research. Thiel is on the advisory board of the The Machine Intelligence Research Institute (MIRI), whose Director of Research was Humanity+ board member Ben Goertzel, an advocate of psychedelics, who is also on the Advisory Board of the Timothy Leary Archive maintained by Michael Horowitz, father of Wynona Ryder.”
To move children faster into the world of A.I., Hanson Robotics (Hong Kong-based firm founded in 2013) introduced Little Sophia, a new kind of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), A.I. and code learning companion designed for girls 8 years and older. Ben Goertzel is also the chief scientist of the financial prediction firm Aidyia Holdings, a Hong Kong-based firm, and for the robotics firm Hanson Robotics. The goal is to put Little Sophia here “into the hearts and minds of children everywhere.” These STEM systems are where the fastest growing job sector will be and all these people and more mentioned above intend to cash in big time with this technology.
“I do have a super power, I can code.”
The software that makes interaction with Little Sophia possible, is the radical emotional software used in the gaming industry that Jeffrey Epstein funded back in 2013. Jeffrey Epstein’s money (if it is Epstein’s money, or if he was fronted the money) has made all this possible. A convicted pedophile is behind financing A.I. technology and now Little Sophia is being rolled out for young girls? While everyone is talking about how wonderful Little Sophia will be while being heavily promoted by big media operations like Today’s Show, BBC, Fortune V Magazine, Forbes, Mashable and Digital Trends, no one is discussing Jeffery Epstein who financed much of this. Little Sophia is the future of children. Watch as millions of people head to local electronics stores to pick up their very own $99 Little Sophia A.I. robot for Christmas.
This is like J.B.S. Haldane cryptically writing about A.I. concepts in his book My Friend Mr. Leaky in 1937. Haldane appears to have started seeding children’s books with A.I. concepts to eventually get to where we are now with this technology. Only instead of reading books for the pre-programming, children now will be able to move directly into A.I. by learning how to program through this cute little 14 inch tall A.I. robot. Astonishing isn’t it, people are appalled over Jeffrey Epstein’s involvement in pedophilia, but a little robot made possible by his financing is going to find this robot in the bedrooms of thousands of little girls in the near future? Ignore the fantasy here and follow the money and where does it take you? How does this work? A global system of A.I. technology financed by a network of deviants, pedophiles and sexual predators? If people think governments and corporations are predatory and dysfunctional bloated with terminal corruption, how can our future be any better when the foundation of this technology is based at its core on these networks? Are we deluding ourselves? Are we deceiving our children?
In 2000, Epstein established the Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation, which funds science research and education. Although Epstein attended the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University, he left without obtaining a degree. His firm managed accounts for individuals with net worths over 1$ billion. Considered the “father of A.I. technology,” Marvin Minsky was friends with Jeffrey Epstein who is mentioned in the Forbes article posted above. One of the projects listed on the Jeffrey Epstein’s VI Foundation website is the Open Cog Foundation.
Minsky wrote a book titled “The Emotion Machine“, and in the opening of the book the first sponsor mentioned of Minsky’s book is Jeffrey Epstein. Could this all be possibly related to taking human emotions to the very extreme through pedophelia to build A.I. models? Was Jeffery Epstein working on any private projects that haven’t been uncovered yet related to A.I. technology and pedophilia? Jeffrey Epstein has always been deeply interested in the exploration of the mind. Are the mind’s of pedophiles that Epstein was involved with “explored as to their addiction to pedophilia?”
That’s an interesting idea that needs “exploration.” Not only is Epstein involved in AGI (artificial general intelligence) research being developed by Ben Goertzel of OpenCog, but also supported the artificial intelligence work of Marvin Minsky. There isn’t a day that goes by that news doesn’t appear discussing the case of Jeffery Epstein and how his powerful extremely wealthy friends have been pulling strings for him behind the scenes to make him a “free man” despite the criminality of his sexual proclivities. Other than this nothing is really known about him. Secret island Lolita Express “visionary funding” coupled with the Hong Kong-based OpenCog AGI research project.
Ben Goertzel’s blockchain artificial intelligence (A.I.) platform SingularityNET has officially launched a beta version of its Ethereum-based decentralized marketplace on Thursday, Feb. 28, 2019. Is everyone ready for the SingularityNET? Dig right in and beta test it for your tech owner AGI masters. Here’s an interesting thought: If your mind is infected with what is called a “mind virus” through this technology, do you think these A.I. developers who have the most advanced artificial intelligence wouldn’t protect themselves from some type of a cognitive mind virus? They would want to protect themselves and their friends and their “evil” ways? Then make it so good that people can’t see the “evil” because the AGI floods them with information, confusion, doubt and “mind viruses?”
Most people on the internet seem to be living off internet conspiracy fantasies sold to them by Jeffrey Epstein, Marvin Minsky, Norbert Weiner and friends. Some of the top mathematicians are friends with Jeffrey Epstein. Let that thought sink in for moment. It’s as if people who can’t get out of this fantasyland (game theory) and get a grip on reality, are going to be given a pedophile-based A.I. This AGI technology is reaching out to children. If you are a parent are you even remotely aware of the games your children are playing this AGI has access to? Let’s get a friggin’ grip here parents. Look how Ben Goertzel gets idolized on the Joe Rogan show.
Think for a second who got piles of free cryptocurrency, stock options, and investment credit on this AGI technology including with Sophia and OpenCog coming through “visionary funding”? Why of course, Jeffrey Epstein. People are not being given a choice on whether or not they want to use this technology. Governments are choosing to use SingularityNET to post their A.I. research and it is a massive project. SingularityNET is operated by OpenCog “visionary funded” by Jeffrey Epstein. Now, does anyone actually thing Epstein will spend serious time in prison?
Are you stuck in fantasies? Want to see a fantasy-driven internet mind virus? Watch YouTube clips of Anonymous. Go to Project Zorgo on YouTube called a “hacker group” then look at how many YouTube clips children are making with “Zorgo” in the title who are unknowingly being tagged into this hacker network while parents are gleeful at the prospect their children are “becoming tech savvy” making cute little YouTube clips. Some of these clips have up to 2, 3 and 4 million views or more with 857,000 subscribers mostly children. Here you have children making videos playing around with Project Zorgo and Anonymous hackers, while all these children are being tracked by these same Anonymous hackers. Project Zorgo is even inside Roblox. Roblox is global platform that brings people (children) together through play. It is the number one gaming site for children and teens.

Jeffrey Epstein backs OpenCog Artificial Intelligence Research
November 14, 2013 | by Peter Rothman
To date, Jeffrey Epstein’s foundation, the Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation plays an active role in supporting neuroscience around the world.
New York science investor, Jeffrey Epstein, has backed H+ board member Ben Goertzel’s OpenCog Hong Kong based research group.
Based in Hong Kong, OpenCog, an open source AI programming group, under the direction of Ben Goertzel, began their cerebral project with a Hanson Robokind: a toddler like robot. The challenge is to take the basic intelligence of virtual avatars programmed for the screen, and transfer that to a robotic structure. To do this however, a robot must have the capacity to perceive and interpret the outside world.
OpenCog’s virtual characters have that capacity. Each character has a database called an AtomSpace where thousands of ‘atoms’ exist as knowledge concepts such as objects, actions and feelings (anger, fear, happiness). Every time a character encounters objects or concepts in its environment, a new atom is created in that character’s AtomSpace. Associations are also recorded as a character moves from one concept to another. Upon repetition, associative links get stronger, influencing a character’s pathway choices and building associative memory. Links can also decay over time if not used by algorithms.
Generalized intelligence from the environment is also built as similarities between concepts trigger an associative network in the AtomSpace. Several algorithms can function at the same time: such as current associative links and associative networks that are triggered due to similarities. The theory behind this “cognitive synergy” is that humans have multiple thought processes going on simultaneously, prioritizing one’s over others in order to function.
“The challenge in all of this,” Jeffrey Epstein remarked, “is to create a robotic nervous system that can perceive concepts in its environment .”
OpenCog is well on its way to developing a digital nervous and perceptive system, focusing currently on basic language, sound, touch recognition and pixel imaging sensors based on DeSTIN Machine Vision.
Epstein’s foundation, the Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation, plays an active role in supporting neuroscience research around the world. In addition to establishing the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics at Harvard, the foundation is one of the largest funders of individual scientists, including Stephen Hawking and Nobel Laureate physicists Gerard ‘t Hooft, David Gross and Frank Wilczek. Epstein is dedicated to investing in science research and education throughout the world.
Congratulations to the OpenCog team!

The Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation Helps Launch Artificial Intelligence in Ethiopia
The renowned science foundation advances AI in the capital of Ethiopia.
May 14, 2014
NEW YORK, May 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — When it comes to Sub-Saharan Africa, the media always focuses on war, famine and disease. Little is known about the innovation and positive attributes stemming from the region. One such attribute, is the growth of computer science and artificial intelligence. Indeed, the field of AI has skyrocketed in developing nations with the advent of the home computer, but has recently found burgeoning roots, not in Silicon Valley, India or China, but in the bustling capital of Ethiopia.
Thanks to a leading AI group in Hong Kong called OpenCog Foundation, funding from the Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation based in New York, and the Hong Kong government, the AI lab in Sidist Killo, Ethiopia called Addis AI Lab, has become the computer science pioneer in Sub-Saharan Africa.
“We are very excited by the programming coming out of the Addis AI Lab,” Jeffrey Epstein remarked, founder of the Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation, which supports cutting edge science research around the world. “With education and economic growth rates as one of the highest in the world, it makes perfect sense to lay an AI foundation in the heart of Ethiopia’s capital.”
Indeed, in Ethiopia, an astounding 95% graduate from primary school, 60-70% from high school, and there are almost 100 universities. The software market has doubled in the past three years and the Ministry of Trade and Industry affirms more than 700 licensed companies in computer technology and 95 software and computer networking businesses.
