Blockchain and AI are the two extreme sides of modern technology spectrum: one fostering centralized intelligence on close data platforms, the other promoting decentralized applications in an open-data environment. How can we leverage these innovative technologies to foster decentralization and democratization of value among our people?

Artificial intelligence has the ability to leverage a variety of datasets- including images, text, audio, video, structured data, unstructured data, and more. Blockchain has at its core, the security and distribution of database in an uncensorable environment. The extent to which these two technologies can be applied to solving common African problems is only limited by our imaginations.

This is a new kind of conference. Built to fit the business minded individual. Practical use-case-driven, with insights that can be applied almost immediately.

The conference promises to showcase a remarkable list of leading voices in the artificial intelligence and blockchain communities across the globe, with the spotlight on local Startups already building out solutions in the ecosystem.

Top government decision makers, Regulators, Entrepreneurs, Enthusiasts, Developers, Chief technical officers, Students and Investors interested in innovation at the intersection of AI and Blockchain.
