Themes

Trustless infrastructure for AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have become increasingly popular in recent years, with many innovative applications across industries. However, the lack of trustless infrastructure for AI has been a major challenge, with issues such as security breaches, data manipulation, and privacy concerns still being prevalent.

The challenge for this hackathon is to create a trustless infrastructure for AI that ensures secure and private AI applications, using zero-knowledge proofs (zkp) and zk-SNARKs (zero-knowledge succinct non-interactive arguments of knowledge) to create a secure and private AI network.

Additionally, solutions should focus on empowering developers with zero-knowledge proofs and zero-knowledge proofs empowered AI DApps and zkml (zero-knowledge machine learning), enabling secure and private machine learning applications using blockchain technology.

AIGC and Web3 Gaming

The gaming industry is one of the fastest-growing industries globally, with millions of gamers and game developers worldwide. However, the industry faces several challenges, including issues with scalability, security, and transparency. There is also a need for innovative solutions for content generation, AI-based apps, and other applications that can enhance the gaming experience.

Develop a solution that leverages AIGC and blockchain technology to revolutionize Web 3 gaming, enhancing immersion and trust for players.

AI marketplace

As the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) continues to grow in popularity, it has become increasingly important to ensure secure and private AI applications. However, the lack of decentralized computation resources and a trustworthy marketplace for AI algorithms and data exchange has been a major challenge, with issues such as security breaches, data manipulation, and privacy concerns still being prevalent.

The challenge is to create an AI marketplace that ensures secure and transparent exchange of AI algorithms and data with the help of blockchain technology.
