Is Blockchain a Branch of AI? with Toufi Saliba

This talk will be a sneak peek at ACM AiDecentralized, an ACM global initiative to collide AI practitioners with Blockchainers in conferences across major cities. Unlike the many conferences bringing AI to Blockchain, we strongly believe bringing the security elements learned from the science of the Blockchain to AI can be crucial to secure AI. Autonomous decentralized governance is a security model, its evolution has surpassed academia and is currently being manifested heavily within the Blockchains and Crypto community. Yet, many if not most AI practitioners are unaware of its existence, or its necessity to securing AI. Colliding these two disciplines can benefit the security of AI and subsequently the safety of humankind.
