AI and Web3 - A new playing field for the Alliance Ecosystem

We’re entering a new age of technology powered by advancements in Web3, and AI, both areas covered by Gartner’s Top Tech to Experiment with in 2023. In this session we’ll explore how Web3 is changing what it means to exist online through advancements in digital identity and data ownership, and examine how AI is being leveraged as a partner to businesses. The common thread tying these technologies together is how digital identity will keep us grounded, allowing us to benefit from these advancements without having to give up control of our digital lives - and how these technologies will disrupt our ecosystem.
