Tokens and Complex Systems

Abstract: I will describe how complex systems relate to tokenized ecosystems, aka blockchains. I will describe AI DAOs (decentralized autonomous organizations) and how blockchains can be viewed as life forms. I will describe how blockchains help democratize access to AI data and algorithms. I will describe how best practices from evolutionary algorithms help in token design. I will describe how agent-based systems might be repurposed for simulation in a token design loop. In sum, the complex systems world has useful theory and tools for the blockchain world, and the blockchain world has highly relevant applied problems.

Bio: Trent did AI research for two decades, including machine creativity and AI to help drive Moore's Law. For the last several years he's worked on blockchain, focusing on democratizing data via Ocean decentralized data economy for AI, BigchainDB decentralized database, and advising the Estonia E-residency program.
