Tech Talk: The Future of Artificial Intelligence is Web3

January 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


As Artificial Intelligence is reaching the pinnacle of its hypercycle, so are the fears of what AI could do. But what is not considered is how the internet is evolving.

The future of the Web, a.k.a. Web3, has the capability to authenticate identity and verify data in ways that could help keep AI in check. Put another way, Web3 domesticates data in the wild to prevent AI from feeding off everything and anything.

Gary Jackson, Director of AI & Distributed Ledger Technologies at CGI, will explain how the only thing that could make AI dangerous is if humans allow Web3 not to happen. In this Tech Talk, we will explore how the new Web3 landscape could negate fears about AI technologies and help incubate innovation.
