Event Details

After the success of the 2017 programme card where 6 talks were delivered, we are pleased to announce the commencement of the 2018 series.  The talks continue the theme of “of now” technology subject matters and try to de-mystify some of these subjects and provide for objective commentary.

The focus of this Talk will be on Blockchain and will be delivered by two representatives with varied experiences. Dr Tim Kindberg is founder of digital technology company matter II media and Somil Goyal is an experienced financial services executive and is COO of Adjoint [a distributed ledger and smart contract company selected as 2018 100 Most Influential Fintechs].

Tim will debate digital currency such as Bitcoin and other blockchain-based systems such as Ethereum and will explain why he is sceptical about the technologies that underlie them and look at what needs to be done.  Whilst Somil will discuss distributed ledge technology how it extends the traditional databse model using smart contracts within the finance industry as his example.

The session will start with registration at 6.45pm, talks starting at 7.15pm, followed by an hour of talks from our panel, followed by Q&A, with networking and drinks to finish by c.9pm.

The event is free of charge, but will require registration to ensure there are no capacity restrictions.  

The BCS talks are scheduled to be held in various locations throughout Bristol, where the majority of members are located.  The talks aim to appeal to both existing and new members, young and old, and broadly technical and non-technical.  The content of future topics are being investigated based on feedback form previous events.

The closest definite public parking is Sainsburys at Clifton Down shopping centre (see map below) up the Whiteladies Rroad.  This is about a c10min walk.
