Avichal Garg highlights that there may exist a potentially symbiotic relationship between crypto and AI. For example, AI could write distributed applications on crypto networks, while AI bots could use decentralized systems for payments. He argues that there is the potential to grant personhood to AI in small countries, which could lead to jurisdictions effectively allowing non-human organizations to control capital. For him, challenges like deep fakes can be addressed by incorporating cryptographic signatures into human-created media. In conclusion, he highlights the complementary relationship between AI and crypto, emphasizing the potential for significant changes in various sectors as these technologies continue to intersect.
