About the event’s theme
Web3, or the decentralized web, represents the next evolution of the Internet. It's an iteration that promises greater decentralization, democratization, and data sovereignty, facilitated by technologies such as blockchain and decentralized storage systems. On the other hand, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a suite of technologies capable of mimicking human intelligence, transforming vast amounts of data into meaningful insights and automating complex tasks.
The convergence of Web3 and AI holds tremendous promise. As AI models increasingly become more data-hungry, the decentralized and secure nature of Web3 can provide a new way to source and handle data, enhancing privacy and user control. Moreover, the Web3 framework can enable the creation of decentralized AI, where models are trained and deployed on the blockchain, ensuring transparency, accountability, and broad access.
In this Unconference, we will delve into how this intersection can contribute to the public good. From democratizing access to AI tools and ensuring fair data usage to promoting transparency in AI decision-making processes, the combination of Web3 and AI can be a powerful tool to tackle societal challenges and reduce inequalities.
This event is not just about understanding the technology but about community building and learning together. We believe in the power of collective intelligence and learning from diverse perspectives. As such, our Unconference will feature a series of interactive sessions and hands-on workshops aimed at fostering a collaborative learning environment. Whether you're an industry expert or a novice, we invite you to contribute your insights, questions, and curiosity.
Together, we can demystify the complexities of Web3 and AI, explore their potential for public good, and foster a community empowered to shape the future of these transformative technologies. Join us for this journey of discovery and impact!
