Fascinating talks on distributed oracles, decentralized networks, and ZK provers

Yesterday, on 27 February, we were fortunate enough to witness some fascinating talks and events.   

DORA: Scalable Distributed Oracles explored the challenges of connecting existing Web2 data sources to blockchains.  

The speakers proposed a distributed solution for solving the oracle problem, which could withstand extreme adversarial settings and is at the same time scalable with the growth of the oracle network. 

Another exciting event was the Decentralized Networks Summit x BUIDL, where attendees had the chance to learn about the latest research and tech insights from the decentralized and open-source projects.  

Talks were given by top Web3 infrastructure projects, including Fluence, Gensyn, Filmine Network, Streamr, Spheron Protocol, and Lit Protocol, followed by Q&A sessions and networking opportunities. 

Finally, we were intrigued by The Cost of Intelligence: Pushing the limits of ZK (Zero Knowledge) with AI, where experts discussed the capabilities of ZK provers in creating ZK-rollups and supporting ZKVMs. The talk also explored how these provers fared against deep neural networks, some of the most compute-hungry algorithms of our time.
