Emin Gün Sirer, the visionary mind behind Ava Labs, foresees a groundbreaking shift in blockchain technology with the advent of AI-powered smart contracts.

At the Cornell Blockchain Conference, Sirer highlighted the potential of these contracts to simplify coding complexities, allowing users to write contracts in natural language.

While challenges like legal definitions and AI reliability persist, the concept offers an inclusive pathway for billions of new users to engage with blockchain.

Initiatives like Council and Chainlink's Ask AI exemplify early steps toward this future, translating plain English instructions into executable code.

Despite uncertainties, Sirer believes this transformative leap will democratise contract creation and drive widespread blockchain adoption.
