Completed Research Paper accepted at International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) 2020

We are proud to announce that the paper "Combining Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence – Literature Review and State of the Art" authored by Erik Karger was accepted for publication at the International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) 2020. ICIS is the most prestigious conference in the field of IS and takes place in 2020 from 13th to 16th December in a virtual format. Further information about this conference can be found here.


Artificial intelligence and blockchain are among the most popular technologies. Combine the two technologies also harbors manifold potentials. For instance, blockchain can help address specific AI-related difficulties such as the black box problem. Vice versa, AI offers opportunities to improve the blockchain’s mining process, or smart contracts. Despite their relevance for companies, these combination solutions have so far received little attention. We undertake a systematic literature review to close this research gap and to provide a first comprehensive overview of this emerging field. We do so by providing a threefold categorization of the different options for connecting the blockchain and AI.
