Zero Barriers ahead! Zero knowledge and AI combine to redefine the future


From the international stage at Davos to the soccer fields of Bedford, the Decentralize with Cointelegraph podcast dives into the nuances of crypto and blockchain, and how they intersect with everyday life.

One promising technology that has emerged in the blockchain space is zero-knowledge proofs (ZK-proofs), which many claim can be a game-changer for blockchain tech and how smart contracts are implemented.

Zero Barriers is a special six-part series launched in the first week of July on the Decentralize with Cointelegraph podcast to explore this innovative technology. In the fourth episode, Andrew Fenton, managing editor of Cointelegraph Magazine, sits down with some of the individuals behind ZK-rollups to talk about how these solutions have developed and changed the blockchain space over the past few years.

This episode features Eli Ben-Sasson, a co-founder and chief architect of StarkWare, who has been at the forefront of the technology since validity proofs were an abstract theoretical concept to StarkNet’s superfast Quantum Leap upgrade

Alongside him is Cem Dagdelen, co-founder of Giza, a company seeking to bridge artificial intelligence (AI) and ZK tech. Together they take a trip back to the old days and explain how ZK-supercharged smart contracts can combine with other emerging technologies, such as AI. The episode is co-hosted by Nathan Jeffay from StarkWare.
