Assurance of Trust: Blockchain and AI -- Necessary and Sufficient?

Speaker:  Ashish Kundu – San Jose, CA, United States
Topic(s):  Computational Theory, Algorithms and Mathematics


With the pervasive use of technology today across all aspects of our society and government, the information trust landscape is changing alongwith the threat landscape. With the advanced threats, centralized roots of trust for data protection and records management may have been compromised (such as the Stuxnet, Spectre, Meltdown, Mirai botnet attacks). With the rise in such compromises and misinformation attacks, in this talk, we shall explore the following question -- how can we assure trust for records? Is it necessary to use decentralized trust systems such as blockchain and are they sufficient? At the same time, records generated and managed by AI systems -- how can we trust such records for their security, privacy and quality? Adversarial AI poses significant risks to such systems. Is it a good strategy to use both Blockchain and AI for trust assurance? Or in future do we need to look up to more powerful computing systems such as Quantum computing to manage trust in lesser powerful computing systems such as classical computing systems?
