Artificial intelligence (AI) and Web3 are two of the most transformative technologies of our time. AI has already become a central building block of the world’s software, with PwC estimating that by 2030, AI will contribute a staggering $15.7 trillion to the global economy, resulting in a 14% increase in global GDP. As we transition to Web3, the decentralized web, AI will play an increasingly important role in shaping the landscape of our digital world.

AI refers to the development of computer systems capable of performing tasks that typically require human intelligence, such as reasoning, learning, and problem-solving. AI is rapidly advancing and is already being used in a wide range of applications across most industries as also discussed in my book “Democratizing Artificial Intelligence to benefit Everyone: Shaping a Better Future in the Smart Technology Era”, as well as the articles “The Power of Generative AI: Exploring its Impact, Applications, Limitations, and Future“, “AI Revolutionizing Personalized Engagement for Consumer Facing Businesses“, “AI-powered Process and Equipment Enhancement across the Industrial World“, “Ultra-personalized AI-enabled Education, Precision Healthcare, and Wellness“, and “AI’s Impact on Society, Governments, and the Public Sector“. Web3 is a new vision for the internet that aims to create a more decentralized, secure, and user-centric digital ecosystem. Web3 is built upon blockchain technology and other decentralized protocols, which enable the creation of trustless, transparent, and censorship-resistant applications and services.

As we stand on the cusp of a new technological era, the fusion of AI and Web3 has the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with the internet and with each other. The vision for this new, blockchain-based web includes cryptocurrencies, NFTs, DAOs, decentralized finance, and more, offering a read/write/own internet that is more equitable and secure for all users. AI can be used to power new applications and services that are more personalized, efficient, and secure. Web3 can provide a more open and democratic platform for innovation. The convergence is indeed paving the way for a new era of decentralized innovation, transforming industries and empowering individuals, as well as creating a decentralized world where intelligence meets trust. This topic was also discussed in a recent webinar AI and Web3 – A Perfect Match? (1.Introduction; 2. Thoughts on ChatGPT; 3. Thoughts on Call for Pause on AI; 4. Adapt with AI Advancement; 5. Closing Thoughts).

The Potential Benefits and Challenges of AI and Web3

The combination of AI and Web3 has the potential to offer a number of benefits, including: (1) Personalized experiences: AI can be used to personalize the user experience on the internet. For example, AI can be used to recommend products and services that are relevant to the user’s interests. (2) Efficiency: AI can be used to automate tasks and make the internet more efficient. For example, AI can be used to automate customer service tasks or to generate content. (3) Security: AI can be used to improve the security of the internet. For example, AI can be used to detect fraud or to identify malicious activity. (4) Democracy: Web3 can provide a more open and democratic platform for innovation. This is because Web3 is based on decentralization, which means that there is no central authority that controls the internet.[…]
