Educational Challenges in the Ever-Evolving Space of Zero-Knowledge

Abstract. By attending this presentation you will learn about a variety of developed and envisioned zero-knowledge proofs (ZKP) educational resources for the community. We will also talk about recent advancements in SNARK land. There is a lot of community expertise, but it takes a village to move toward standards and technical consensus. What has ZKProof been doing lately to facilitate reaching them? We are fascinated by arithmetization systems (Plonkish, AIRs, CCS, …), recursion, IOPs, error correcting codes, golden ratio primes, cycles of elliptic curves, quantum resistance, linear time provers, distributed provers, polynomial commitments. What is all this nonsense? Experts, who already know infinitely more than zero about ZK, we are also looking at you. Yes, we hope to ensnare you into joining the ZKProof community. Join us.
