The Convergence of AI and Blockchain

  • Francesco CoreaEmail author
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Complexity book series (BRIEFSCOMPLEXITY)


This is likely the most technical chapter of the book, although it is explained in a comprehensible language. It deals with the intersection between AI and blockchain and how they are affecting each other. A primer on blockchain is provided, as well as a full map of players working with those two exponential technologies.
