It seems to make sense for AI and crypto to intersect, though it hasn't been clear exactly how. One interesting possibility:
What if AI made things happen in the real world with crypto-backed incentives?
Imagine: an AI instance given a treasury and the directive to decide on events it wants to occur, then creating rewards for actions and outcomes that are verified through oracles and automatically rewarded.
Good, bad, funny; all would be fair game, and up to the AI to decide. The AI would be on-chain, decentralized, and impossible to stop: the truest form of a "decentralized autonomous organization."
AI seems innocent enough sitting behind a chat box; confined to a distant cloud and machines that can be unplugged. This "air gap" limits the real-world impact of AI today, but is quickly closing.
