AI and Blockchain — Double the Hype or Double the Value?

Original article was published on Artificial Intelligence on Medium

Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a market is full of hype, with vendors, customers, and press all speaking breathlessly about the capabilities for AI in general and their offerings specifically. Likewise, blockchain is also a widely hyped market, with technology providers and customers claiming all sorts of capabilities that may or may not be possible. Combining AI and blockchain then must be double the hype? On the other hand, AI is providing real, tangible value in many myriad ways we talk about every day. Likewise, blockchain is starting to show value across a range of applications and industry. So, perhaps combining AI and blockchain will also show twice the value combined together.
