Deep dives

AI and crypto as opposing technologies

Crypto and AI are two technologies that oppose each other while also complementing each other. AI thrives on top-down centralized control, while crypto enables bottom-up decentralized cooperation. The tension between centralization and decentralization is a major theme in their interaction. AI can benefit from crypto by acting as a decentralized counterweight to the centralizing force of AI models that rely on more data and complex models. On the other hand, crypto can benefit from AI in various ways, such as using AI to generate code, leveraging zero-knowledge proofs for secure and private computations, and utilizing machine learning to detect and prevent suspicious transactions and minor extractable value (MEV) in blockchain networks.
