VAIOT, a developer of AI-powered digital services, has integrated zk-SNARKs into its AI Legal Assistant, which utilizes its proprietary machine learning algorithms, Microsoft CLU, and OpenAI’s GPT-4.
With zk-SNARKs, the AI Legal Assistant enables users to verify information in legal contracts without disclosing sensitive details, ensuring secure legal support for individuals and organizations.
Recent data breaches, such as the MOVEit tool breach affecting over 15.5 million people, highlight the importance of data privacy.
zk-SNARKs, a promising privacy-preserving technology, enable one party to prove a secret without revealing the secret itself.
VAIOT’s AI Legal Assistant, built on its ML algorithms, now uses zk-SNARKs to verify contract information without exposing sensitive data, while also leveraging GPT-4’s text fluency. This capability is also available in VAIOT’s AI Assistant for citizen services and public administration process automation.
Instances such as taking out a loan often require verifying one’s income, yet as ransomware and data hacks continue to soar, borrowers can be hesitant to share their entire employment contract.
Enabling data verification without exposing unnecessary data, as seen with VAIOT’s zk-SNARKs integration, simplify the process while safeguarding confidentiality.
Key uses of zk-SNARKs in the AI Legal Assistant include proof of income, confidentiality, non-competition, and penalty clauses, and proof of compliance without revealing specifics.
Everyday users can benefit from zk-SNARKs for proof of identity, purchase verification, and anonymous dispute resolution.
VAIOT’s $VAI token is fully regulated by the Maltese Financial Services Authority (MFSA), ensuring high security and privacy standards.
“Blockchain, and particularly zk-SNARKs, opens a world of options to verify contracts to any party without disclosing sensitive information,” states VAIOT COO, Paweł Andruszkiewicz.
He mentioned that VAIOT aims to use AI effectively and responsibly to expand access to legal support and citizen services.
Szymon Reddig, Lead Blockchain Developer at VAIOT, emphasized the groundbreaking nature of zk-SNARKs, highlighting their ability to generate proofs for computations while keeping the underlying data and statements hidden from verifiers. This compact and efficient technology, Szymon points, enhances scalability and computational efficiency.
