New conference aims to take mystery out of blockchain and AI

The ‘Blockchain & AI: Where are they taking us?’ conference will be held in Malta on October 10 and 11

A new conference to be held in Malta next month aims to explore the worlds of blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) by engaging with active practitioners in their fields.

Blockchain & AI: Where are they taking us?’ will feature a number of expert speakers who will discuss the impact these innovative technologies are having – and may yet have – on the world.

While debating the various current and future applications of blockchain and AI, the conference will also look at the relevant legal frameworks, particularly regarding Malta.

“We are delighted to be hosting the ‘Blockchain & AI: Where are they taking us?’ conference,” said Mark Azzopardi from Working Town Events, organisers of the event.

Blockchain and AI are set to change our lives – but what do we know about these technologies and what can we expect their impact to be?

“Have they already had a profound and irreversible effect? This useful and enjoyable conference hopes to answer these questions and more, for those looking to deliver services related to these sectors as well as those who just wish to learn the basics.”

Expert discussions

The two-day event will include talks, forums, and panel discussions with experts including Helen Burrows, Aviya Arika, Soulla Louca, Godfrey Baldacchino, Claudia Borg, Vanessa Camilleri, Joseph Anthony Debono, Stephanie Fabri, David Galea, Philip Maurice Mifsud, Luis Pallares, Abigail Mamo, Béatrice Collet, Denise De Gaetano, Helga Pizzuto, Mark Mallia, Darren Parkin, François Grech, Leonard Bonello, Malcolm Falzon, Ian Gauci, James Muscat Azzopardi, and Gordon Pace.

It will be compered by business journalist and PR strategist Jo Caruana.

Working Town Events is an Azure Rock Partners brand and it will host the conference in media and PR partnership with Coin Rivet, Blockchain Island Magazine, Zeta, Meta Luminor, the Academy of Business Leaders, and Write Me Anything. The event is also accredited by the Malta Institute of Accountants for 8.25 hours of Professional Development in terms of the Accountancy Board’s CPE Scheme.

Blockchain & AI: Where are they taking us?’ will be held on Thursday 10 and Friday 11 October 2019 at Villa Bologna, Attard.
