With talk of Artificial Intelligence (A.I) often in the “futurism” space, and certainly being toyed with, this article takes a peek at “what ifs”, potential scenarios that might leverage Blockchain technology in the field of Complex and Simple A.I.
Welcome to Tomorrow Where No One Drives The Taxis
Where automated taxis are owned by individuals and businesses alike, they drive around with their GPS locators that you can view from your home and they pick up passengers and drop them off, while being paid in cryptocurrency.
When they are low fuel, they drive to a local recharge bay and automatically “top up”, they’re electric run cars you see. But even these get damaged sometimes and need servicing or just a checkup.
At these times your automated car, or taxi, will drive itself to a garage or similar, have itself checked out, then be told how much its repair or maintenance will cost. Proceeding then to pay for itself via a digitized dashboard with its own wallet, or perhaps a link to the wallet you control from your home. Then once repaired and checked it starts its routes again, a taxi service that doesn’t sleep, doesn’t eat.
And if one automated taxi isn’t enough then you could own a few, or maybe even join a crowdfunding project where individuals get together to start themselves out on a “taxi-venture”. And of course, a bonus is that it’s a free taxi for you on a night out, assuming you programmed it to pick you up at wherever you were.
On the Interwebz Nobody Knows You Are a Fridge
Whenever you put items into your Smart Fridge you would normally scan it, you fridge over time will “record” what type of items you usually have in your fridge. And over a certain length of time, it will observe the regularity in which you resupply said items.
If your fridge is able to determine a decision based on past information, then able to act on it (ordering you some more milk, or beer, maybe both), whilst recording said information for future reference. Over time this fridge will get to know some of your eating habits well enough to pre-emptively order most of what you require.
It might even have an optional “health” function, whereby it can warn you if you are eating or drinking too much of a particular substance.
And this fridge could quite easily record all of this information on a Blockchain, always being able to refer to it, no worry of “resets” or if the fridge gets damaged and you need a new one? Your fridge history might still be available, and your new fridge simply accesses it on the blockchain. Transferring all “simple” services to your new fridge, who will in turn endeavour to co-exist with you and your family.
Automated Customer Service Bots
Service bots with facial recognition software who use blockchain technology to “remember” you. Who can potentially work in various service sector jobs such as health care, instore service, or online bots.
All basing their “memory” within Blockchain technology, able to access “old memory” and when receiving new information able to determine new choices based on “learned” memory and current information.
Health or legal bots in this area with access to such information might prove quite valuable to humanity as they might more precisely be able to diagnose their patients if they are able to draw upon and cross-reference so much more information than a human could.
Crowd Sourced Global Finance at our Fingertips
Normally you would think that investing in such ventures or starting one yourself would not be possible unless you were a rich wealthy individual, or part of some hedge fund, and had the means and connections to start or join such a venture.
But in the age of Cryptocurrency the world becomes more inclusive, and through Blockchain smart-contract technology individuals the world over of little resource can band together to fund or start their own A.I service to improve their own local area or someone else’s.
And as each area gets improved the cost and quality of living improves. As people earn returns as they share in the global increase in wealth and they share in the increased quality of life those investments are buying for everyone. And then businesses and individuals both profit from being those investing having more funds to be able to spend and enjoy.
Smart contracts boosting A.I investments is something you just might want to keep an eye out for.
