Vitalik Buterin Says Developers Should 'Tread Carefully' Mixing Crypto and AI

The next category, which Buterin tags as “high potential, but with high risks,” includes applications where AI acts as an “interface to the game.” In these applications, AI is used to help users “understand the crypto world around them” and ensure their behavior “matches their intentions.” Buterin gives the example of scam-detection features, like the one used in the MetaMask crypto wallet to warn users if they might be interacting with a deceptive application. Such features could be “super-charged” by AI’s enhanced detection and explanatory capabilities.
