Episode 44: How Blockchain And AI Will Change The Way We Automate Knowledge Work [Podcast]

  • 8 January 2019
  • Blockchain Disruption

The AI community needs a more universal infrastructure to increase trust and remove security issues throughout the industry. As algorithms become more powerful, it's important to consider how they will be managed as they automate all kinds of work. In this interview, Rob May, Founder and CEO of BotChain, shares how blockchain can help AI developers reduce malicious bot activity, the spread of fake news, and other unintended consequences that the technology may create.

About Rob May: Rob May is Founder and CEO of BotChain, the blockchain protocol designed to register and identify the bots, ensuring bot-to-bot (and bot-to-human) communication is legitimate. Rob and the team at BotChain have established a consortium of partners representing 50,000 developers, over 150,000 enterprise and consumer-facing bots, 400 million end users, and 4 billion monthly interactions in order to heighten trust, transparency, and collaboration in and around the AI ecosystem.

About BotChain: Based in the heart of the innovation district in Boston, BotChain has secured a critical mass of aligned partners in the artificial intelligence space including Passage AI, SEED, Gupshup, and Botkit, along with B2B enterprise bot developers. In creating a universal registry to audit interactions and control the boundaries of bot autonomy, BotChain leverages blockchain to post a record of all bot activities on a common, shared, widely-viewable, and secure ledger, incentivizing bot innovation and mainstream adoption of AI — a subject that has been widely debated by the likes of Elon Musk and top executives at Apple and Google.

What you will learn in this episode:

  • How blockchain will serve as an infrastructure layer for AI applications.
  • Blockchain’s ability to disrupt the trends of the AI landscape, such as malicious bot activity and the spread of fake news.
  • How you can leverage blockchain to develop more effective automation.
