Perhaps you didn’t read the article. I’m starting of with Andrew Ng’s well known quote “AI is the New Electricity”. I’m sure your arguments make sense, blockchains are after all distribution networks just like electricity. Still, it would be unimaginative of me to just say “Blockchain is the New Electricity”. It would be like stealing someone else’s slogan.
Also, when I say blockchain, I’m referring to “Intuition Fabric” which indeed is powered by A.I.
