No, Artificial Intelligence and 'The Blockchain' Don't Go Together -


If one types in "define blockchain" into Google, this is the definition they receive: A system in which a record of transactions made in bitcoin or another cryptocurrency are maintained across several computers that are linked in a peer-to-peer network. Likewise, if one searches for "define artificial intelligence," they receive the following answer: The theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages. As noted by Kailash Nadh at LiveMint, these two technological advancements aren't related -- and shouldn't be shoehorned together. Examine almost any whitepaper for an initial coin offering (ICO) from 2017 or 2018 and there's a good chance you will find that the project plans on miraculously marrying the blockchain to artificial intelligence in order to not only provide business solutions but also solve all of the world's problems. Throw in some stock images of astronauts and robots, and you've got the complete package.
