Artificial Intelligence is the single most important technology trend in the last decade and has captured a lot of attention in the research community, industry and consequently in the mainstream press. Deep Learning (the foremost AI framework) has superseded traditional machine learning algorithms and has begun outperforming humans in terms of accuracy in tasks such as image classification.
Blockchains are an open, distributed ledger that can record transactions between two parties efficiently and in a verifiable and permanent way. The ledger itself can also be programmed to trigger transactions automatically.This offers the potential of mass disintermediationand vast repercussions for how global tradeis conducted.
In this talk, we will give an overview of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning along with some recent convergence and applications of AI and blockchain.
