Session: AI & Blockchain - Innovation is the next phase
Marketplace – Dollars to be precise are needed when you go to a place like Chuck E. Cheese.
Drone - An unpiloted aircraft that has to be remotely controlled. And now many companies like FedEx have started to use it for deliveries.
Artificial Intelligence - The simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think like humans and mimic their actions.
Blockchain - A cryptocurrency wallet and a cryptocurrency exchange
But how about if we bring all of them together? – This is the idea behind my talk– reducing the need for Dollars/ availability for managing the drones and so on.
The goal is to build a “Token economy that combines drone automation( AI) with the Blockchain and Cryptocurrency”.
Problem: We can change the bots(Drone) into a new way to fund small businesses by building a token economy where large and small businesses connect and startups thrive.
The Hack: The bots make deliveries and accept tokens(supported by an ecosystem of large and small businesses). The tokens fund startups. Startups are an engine for growth.
Potential Impact: The bots become the self-owning infrastructure that powers a business ecosystem. The economy runs on tokens and is powered by a smart contract running on the blockchain.
