AI & Blockchain Regulation

Malta led the blockchain regulatory front in 2018. This time around, the Blockchain Island is also looking to be a top 10 leader in procuring ethical A.I. legal frameworks. What developments are on the horizon for these exciting tech sectors in the grand scheme of things? Let's find out.

Social Impact expand icon

The same way poles oppose and compliment each other, so too could blockchain and artificial intelligence. As the IOT (internet of things) is setting us up for a revolution of connectivity, the advent of decentralised blockchain and centralised artificial intelligence could take societal organisation to a new level.

As demonstrated by IBM’s India Lab, food supply chain processes could be overhauled, accounting for everything from farming to the grocery store. IoT sensors on harvest fields could also provide the bedrock for innovative and efficient farming insurance that takes severe weather into account. In the pharmaceutical sector, medicine storage climates on the blockchain could optimise delivery conditions.

The social ramifications, particularly in emerging economies, are massive. Let’s discuss the social impact of these technologies together

AI & BC for Energy expand icon

Is a distributed power grid the inevitable future? If the energy sector moved towards a two-way electric system comprised of billions of interconnected end points, microgrids, smart appliances and solar energy systems, then could blockchain be used to track the flow of electrons and decentralise the energy market? The possibility exists, but the system is up for grabs. It's time to examine the details.

AI & BC for Entertainment & Marketing expand icon

Centralised websites like Youtube and Twitch have stripped cable networks and studios of their prime media positions.
However, these titan websites and high-quality entertainment mediums operate by a largely centralised model. In a decentralised network, content creators needn't worry about gatekeepers throttling or denying their medium.
Projects such as Steemit and LivePeer have taken the initiative in this regard, but more is sure to come in such a rapidly evolving space.

TBA

AI & BC for Healthcare expand icon

The healthcare industry is drowning in data - clinical trials, patient medical records, complex billing, research and more. Being notorious for its administrative inefficiencies, particularly when transferring patient data across private healthcare providers, can data-handling be streamlined across the industry while ensuring increased security and privacy? Now is the time to discuss.

AI & BC for Payments, Banking & Finance expand icon

Satoshi Nakamoto might have made a mistake when referring to Bitcoin as electronic cash in the 2009 whitepaper.
In fact, Bitcoin is both a digital payments system as well as a store of value that transfer traditionally third-party responsibilities from banks and corporations to individuals.
While this innovation is incredible, problems such as "next of kin" issues, human forgetfulness and a plethora of other points of concern mean that a middle-ground or prolonged transitionary period is very likely.
The future is with us, but the devil is in the details. It's time to understand them and discuss a way forward.

TBA

AI & BC for Retail & Property expand icon

The dependance on third-party verifiers in property markets may be at an end.
As its intended use, the blockchain could act as an innovative, trustless safety-net that ensures both parties keep their end of the deal - reducing the risk of fraud in the process. By using a distributed database to prove authenticity, home owners could transfer ownership through a DLT-network, reducing costs as a consequence. The rental space could also be affected, as agents and buyers will be able to make use of an incorruptible resource that secures data by ensuring digital ownership.
This transformation wouldn't happen over night, but one can see how families and individuals would benefit as property innovations came to fruition. Let's discuss.
