The Promise and Potential of AI x Blockchain

We are excited to announce Generative NY: AI x Blockchain on September 21 in New York, a special event exploring the intersection of artificial intelligence and blockchain technology. In recent years, both AI and blockchain have transformed entire industries. Now, as these two powerful innovations converge, the possibilities are endless. That’s why we knew it was time to bring together the builders and thinkers at this thrilling inflection point.

If you’re ready to glimpse the future of AI x blockchain, request an invite here.

We’re honored to be joined by two exceptional speakers:

Illia Polosukhin, co-founder of NEAR Protocol. Illia has more than 10 years of industry experience, including 3 years at Google where he was a major TensorFlow contributor and manager of the team building question-answering capabilities for the core Google search, as well as an author of several notable research papers. Illia will share his unique perspective on the potential of AI to revolutionize blockchain. 

Alex Atallah co-founded OpenSea, the first NFT marketplace, serving as CTO during its meteoric rise. He helped grow OpenSea to over $4B in monthly volume before leaving to pursue new ventures. Alex brings invaluable perspective on blockchain applications and possibilities.

Illia and Alex will speak about how AI can enhance security, efficiency, and usability for blockchain platforms, and address crucial topics including how generative AI models could open new frontiers for DeFi, NFTs, identity, reputation systems, and overall utility of the blockchain. Our wide-ranging conversation will uncover real-world use cases, technical hurdles, and the startup opportunities this fusion enables.

At the same time, blockchains offer AI solutions trust, transparency, and immutability. Blockchain data provenance builds confidence in AI training sets. Decentralized models aligned with user incentives may mitigate harms. And running models on-chain with crypto incentives creates autonomous AI agents safely aligned with human values.

Our goal is for attendees to leave inspired, with a clearer vision of the immense potential of AI x blockchain. This event is for builders and innovators eager to be part of creating the next paradigm shift in tech. If you’re a founder, developer, designer, or product leader exploring the intersection of AI and blockchain, join us for this compelling conversation.

Beyond the main discussion, Generative NY: AI x Blockchain will offer invaluable networking with like-minded peers. Plus we’ll provide drinks, pizza, and time to connect over your experience of the AI x blockchain revolution.Ready to get a glimpse of the future? Request your invite and be part of the frontier.
