Tech Dives: Do Blockchain and AI work together?

Blockchain and AI have generated both huge interest and investment from public and private sectors alike. While their potential is there for all to see, their potential to transform industries has often been clouded by intense media hype. Furthermore, many are now mentioning the two in the same breath, with companies such as SingularityNET building decentralised AI solutions and using blockchain to improve the quality of data in their machine learning models.

Many dismiss this as a cynical marketing exercise, but is there a grain of truth there? Are companies that claim to have combined the two to deadly effect set to change the world, or does the emperor have no clothes?

This meetup will see leading researchers and developers from across blockchain and AI explore these two technologies potential to join forces. You’ll hear unbiased, hype-free viewpoints and gain an inside look into current blockchain and AI projects that are pushing into exciting new fields.

This event will be held at the Primalbase London offices in Moorgate, London on the 17th of September 2019. Doors open at 18:00. Refreshments will also be provided.
