Future of AI for smart contracts

The more futuristic concept of AI for smart contracts, which eventually can be used to build and run AI DApps and decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) in such a way that they can adapt and evolve to complete tasks with very limited human intervention is also very interesting.

A project called Cortex claims to be the first blockchain to support on-chain AI. They've managed to deploy a couple of AI models on their testnet using techniques such as quantization and compression. Quantization is a concept in machine learning that combines lightweight inference with high performance, which allows AI models to be executed with high levels of accuracy and low memory costs:

The inference process works as follows: ...
