What happens when gunpowder is on fire? Perhaps with the huge roar, what we can feel is the energy shock that comes from the face. As the two major mainstream technologies of today's technology – blockchain and artificial intelligence , they have led and innovated leading industries in various industries, such as automotive intelligent systems, data security encryption and medical industry. When the two products of the development of science and technology meet, is it to promote mutual growth between the two sides, or is it to hide the body and name when it comes to the spirit? Today we will talk about the new thing in the blockchain + AI.

When the blockchain meets AI

What is the artificial intelligence we can understand now? Simply put, it is the hope that the computer can maximize the replacement of our human intelligent work.

According to the 2015 Illinois team study, artificial intelligence has reached the intelligence level of children aged 4 years. But the intelligence level of a 4-year-old child seems to be impossible for us to do, unless you only let him simply give you something to show you the scene of crying.

However, with the continuous maturity and application of artificial intelligence technology, the innovation of technology ideas around “ blockchain+AI ” is constantly being proposed. Can our technology meet the standards we want?
As a blockchain that has just been "just debuted", it can be said that it is a "white" that is controversial and easy to be speculated. Even if artificial intelligence is a long- lost "big brother", whether it can be combined with such "white" is also a problem worthy of thinking.

Blockchain + AI has the opportunity to become an important development trend

Why connect the blockchain and AI together? How important is AI? Why do you let the blockchain that started less than a decade combine with AI?
According to the understanding, artificial intelligence is regarded as a strategic technology that leads the future. It is one of the core technologies to enhance national competitiveness and safeguard national security, and it will also become the core driving force for a new round of industrial transformation in economic development.
According to the State Council's strategic deployment of the "New Generation Artificial Intelligence Development Plan" on July 8, 2017, the three strategic goals of China's new generation of artificial intelligence development are clarified:
  • By 2020, the overall technology and application of artificial intelligence will be synchronized with the world's advanced level, becoming an important economic growth point and fully supporting the building of a well-off society.
  • By 2025, the basic theory of artificial intelligence has achieved a major breakthrough, becoming the main driving force for China's industrial upgrading and economic transformation, and moving towards the construction of a smart society.
  • By 2030, the theory, technology and application of artificial intelligence have reached the world's leading level, becoming the world's major artificial intelligence innovation center, laying a foundation for economic power.
We can deeply feel the importance of artificial intelligence to the country, so accelerating the development of artificial intelligence has become an urgent matter. There is a saying that people can't be seen. So, the blockchain that started just over a decade, can it bring us unexpected surprises with the combination of artificial intelligence?
Optimize efficiency, trust and improve security
A blockchain is a decentralized, distributed transaction ledger that contains elements such as transparency, trust, verifiability, and smart contracts. This means that both decentralized and distributed storage means that every short point can go in and access data without having to access central data.
Just as we can withdraw money from ATMs everywhere, instead of going to the bank to withdraw money, the ledger is equivalent to our transaction record. It records the interaction between the two parties, whether it is financial transactions or escrow chain transactions, showing time changes, then blockchain records will also change.

This proves that blockchain can help artificial intelligence avoid failures caused by data storage problems . Moreover, we learned that each node in the blockchain stores complete data in a chain structure, and each storage node is independent and equal in status.
The high redundancy of the blockchain and distributed data storage avoids system-level risk. In theory, data is safe unless all nodes are at risk.
This kind of processing not only ensures the security of the data, but also enables the two participants to perform safe and reliable operations, which makes our artificial intelligence more efficient and secure.
Blockchain improves AI data sharing capabilities
Under the premise that the blockchain technology can guarantee the true reliability of the training data, the time of an artificial intelligence deep learning training can be greatly reduced through the distributed data storage mode of the blockchain.
Artificial intelligence facial recognition is a good example. Assuming that the face is identified and stored by a device, other devices also receive information stored in our face and also gain our face recognition capabilities.
Since these operations occur on the blockchain, there is no central control over these facial recognitions. Then no company will own or store the data, which saves another cost.
In this way, in each step of the information processing, the artificial intelligence does not have to wait for the mutual confirmation of the data, and can directly perform the next operation, thereby further reducing the time for the artificial intelligence to deeply operate the operation data.
Convenient data sharing brings a sense of crisis to large enterprises
Facial recognition only supports sharing between the same model. Can artificial intelligence systems use blockchains to share data across multiple models? The answer is yes, otherwise why use it.
At present, some e-commerce platforms use such functions for product recommendation. For example, we bought a pink toothbrush on a treasure. When we visited a certain East on the next day, we found that a certain East also recommended a more beautiful pink toothbrush to me, which made me more excited. This exchange of information sharing allows customers to get services from [better price] to [custom shopping experience]. And if all data is stored and shared through the blockchain rather than the centralized data server, it can effectively prevent data leakage.
The point is that, unlike companies that collect personalized data, they share this data with each other in the blockchain. But this puts pressure on Amazon and Wal-Mart's large corporate websites, which already have their own data systems that collect customer details but don't support sharing.
Blockchain + artificial intelligence seven advantages
Finally, we can include the combination of blockchain and artificial intelligence as the following seven points.
  • Blockchain can improve data security for artificial intelligence
  • Blockchain can accelerate data accumulation, provide more powerful data support for artificial intelligence, and solve AI data supply problems.
  • Blockchain can solve data privacy problems when collecting data
  • Artificial intelligence can reduce power consumption in blockchain
  • Blockchain makes artificial intelligence more trustworthy
  • Blockchain helps artificial intelligence shorten training time
  • Blockchain helps create a more open and fair artificial intelligence market.
However, it is worth noting that today's combination of blockchain and artificial intelligence is still in its infancy. If you compare it to a person, then they are still in need of feeding, and they are not capable of self-reliance. Therefore, for blockchain and artificial intelligence, the most important mission at present is still to improve and grow.
In the future, only two major technologies are relatively mature, and there are applications of a certain scale, so that the synergy and combination of the two are more valuable and use space. Of course, this is also the general trend of our future development.
