“Blockchain and AI,” online fireside chat with Marjel Quekel and Anish Mohammed

Have you read the news over the recent months? Everyone seems to be talking about the future of artificial intelligence and blockchain: how AI changes our lives, what can and cannot be automated, how much can you raise in an ICO, and so on.

On August 9, you’ll have a chance to learn more about the possibilities that these two technologies open before us. Marjel Quekel, AI program director at Rockstart, is hosting a conversation with Anish Mohammed, a security researcher and cryptocurrency professional with more than 15 years of experience.

The conversation will touch the topics like the safety of AI, the blockchain fever, myths about ICO, and possibilities that combination of AI and blockchain can bring.

The online fireside is a part of Rockstart AI Office Hours on Wednesday, August 9. It will be broadcasted via Facebook Live—tune in at our Facebook page at 18:00 CEST to watch the whole event, or at 20:00 CEST to see Marjel and Anish talking about the blockchain and AI opportunities.
