Creating an Effective Proof of Work with Toby Simpson of Fetch.ai
Episode 025 of the What Bitcoin Did podcast featured a wide-ranging conversation between host Peter McCormack and Fetch co-founder/CTO Toby Simpson about both best-case and worst-case outcomes for AI.
But it wasn’t all speculation: developments with Fetch in the here and now provided plenty of insight into the ever-increasing interconnection between AI and decentralization.
Within that system, Simpson fondly refers to the virtual “world” that is being incubated.
“You’ve got the Bitcoin network, and the Ethereum network, and you look at the huge amount of computing power that that has,” Simpson said.
“You think, ‘Well, if we’re doing something useful with it, then it’s not anymore!’ Then we’ve got the globe’s largest supercomputer, and we’re doing stuff with it.”
