Social Impact Workshop

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

09:00 - 12:30

AI & Blockchain Regulation

Artificial Intelligence is taking on a whole new meaning. Technological leaps are making headway into every aspect of our society, from education and finance to health and arts, and everything in between. The inevitability of humans outsourcing aspects of decision making to machines is set to have a massive impact on our daily lives. However, due to the magnitude of both ethical and practical implications, regulators, government forces and experts are keen on directing AI’s development in a sustainable manner. The question is; how can we ensure a responsible approach to ensure AI safety, security and accountability? Let’s avoid a catastrophic singularity and find out.

AI Thought leaders Workshop

2018 was the year of Blockchain in Malta and 2019 is set to become the year of AI in Malta. A taskforce was set up and launched last year during the Malta Blockchain Summit, on November 1st, to implement a national strategy for Artificial Intelligence. The Government is now in a position to explore Artificial Intelligence as a new economic niche. A consultation workshop is taking place on May 22nd, bringing some of the world’s leading AI minds to Malta to share ideas with the taskforce in Malta. Further higlights here: https://malta.ai/

Blockchain and Risk (BAR) Seminar

The Blockchain and Risk Seminar creates a meaningful opportunity for people to explore these crucial topics. We know the burden of managing risk does not fall to a single area, so we have invited experts and thinkers from a wide variety of disciplines including data protection, cybersecurity, ethics, and from sectors such as finance, gaming, and law to share their insights and views on the future of risk management in blockchain.

The BAR seminar’s purpose is to spark new ideas, to share practical steps, tips, and helpful methods and techniques. The aim is to assist people and their organisations in taking calculated risks and making intelligent decisions to decrease the disruptive element of blockchain and increase opportunities.

Blockchain Investments & The Future of Digital Money

Meet key speakers and world’s leading legal minds to discuss the potential frameworks and future of laws for disrupted ledger technologies and crypto currencies.
Malta pushed the envelope with regards to Blockchain regulation in 2018, but looming challenges are just around the corner and some questions still remain pending:
• How does one regulate a network that has nodes distributed across the globe?
• Can governing bodies code regulation into smart contracts moving forward?
• What effect would this have on the underlying principle of democratised authority?
• Moving into an emerging dynamic landscape, how do governments protect investors eager on entering the speculative markets of STOs and ICOs?
