The terms Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence can be heard almost everywhere in the technology-based era. How could blockchain assist in the easy access to AI?
Artificial Intelligence is highly centralized, because of which most of our assumptions on AI are to be questioned. We would assume that in this centralized system we would have access to so much prejudiced information when in truth companies like Amazon or Google would not grant such access to the public, and thus the question of trusting the security of AI is raised. Major tech companies have the resource and funds necessary to hire AI experts that help them dominate the industry. It is these above facts that create the serious problem of most people being hesitant about using AI. Wanting the Artificial Intelligence revolution to succeed should not be at the expense of truth and security.
Here is why the decentralization of Artificial Intelligence becomes essential. The key to granting easier access to AI is to decentralize the data and lower computing costs for training algorithms, which will allow the smaller companies to be able to create their own AI applications as well. Decentralised Artificial Intelligence is a subfield of AI that is dedicated to solving complex planning and decision-making problems. The blockchain technology can make this transition easier in regard to decentralizing the data and also reducing computing costs.
Blockchain will give the AI users more control over their own data trails instead of having companies storing and collecting their customer's data, allowing them to choose how, when and with whom they wish to share their data with. Once this now common data is a commodity the importance shifts from amassing data to creating algorithms that are easily available that will allow anyone to learn and create useful algorithms. The Blockchain technology will also decrease the cost of training AI algorithms.
Decentralized AI will, of course, have its problems, decisions need to be made on how to store the decentralized data in the right manner, what marketplace the people use to discover and use this data and so on. Artificial Intelligence using blockchain is may not be a huge advantage in comparison to the huge tech companies that are in the lead, but it will most certainly level the field.
For a blockchain enthusiast, the ideal merging between AI and blockchain would be Decentralized Autonomous Organisations (DAO). Any organization that is truly autonomous would have no way for humans to take control in any way once stared on the blockchain. This would also allow AI to be written to prioritize other essential things other than money. A DAO would certainly pave the way for the future.
