  • Blockchain technology first made its public debut in 2008 through a white paper released by Satoshi Nakamoto. Since then, an entire ecosystem of decentralized applications: from prediction markets to identity management, games to gold-backed digital tokens, smart contracts to health records, has arisen from this general-purpose blockchain architecture. Blockchain platforms such as Ethereum, Cosmos, Tezos and NEO promise to expand the scope and capabilities of this blockchain-based, tokenized decentralized web. Blockchain enables for consensus in large, public networks and a new architecture for raising capital. How will the decentralized web look like by the end of 2018 and 2023? And how would blockchain potentially impact entire industries in the years to come?

    SGInnovate and the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) are co-hosting this session for parties to come together to both learn more about the transformative potential of Blockchain and its impact on the digital economy. IMDA will also share more about its plans for a Blockchain Challenge for further exploration.

    This event is held in conjunction with De/Centralize, Singapore’s premier blockchain conference bringing together the world’s leading blockchain minds, investors and government representatives on 5-6 April 2018 at the Marina Bay Sands.

  • Join us for two AI-focused conversations on 6 April at SGInnovate, centred on personal AI agents and whether the future of work is powered by augmented or artificial intelligence.

    Date: 6 April 2018
    Time: 5:30pm – 7:30pm
    Venue: 32 Carpenter Street, Singapore 059911

    5:30pm – 6:00pm: Registration
    6:00pm – 6:30pm: Personal Social Analytics – Reputation Analysis for Social Computing
    6:30pm – 7:15pm: AI vs AI: Is the Future of Work Augmented or Artificial Intelligence?
    7:15pm – 7:30pm: Q&A and End

    Session 1 – Personal Social Analytics: Reputation Analysis for Social Computing

    The worldwide explosion of online communication and social media in the Internet Age creates tremendous opportunities, but also introduces new, potentially dangerous risks. On the one hand, there is unprecedented opportunity for anyone to expose their story, invention, or idea to society and dramatically improve the lives of others. On the other hand, most people are not equipped with the tools to utilize this potential effectively, and destructive social effects (both intentional and unintentional) can often result.

    In this talk, we’ll introduce the AIgents project, which allows for the creation of “Personal Artificially Intelligent Agents” that provide a user with in-depth analysis of his or her social interaction landscape. These AIgents can help users be more efficient and effective online by finding new opportunities, forming and strengthening useful relationships, and automatically detecting intrusive or manipulative communications.

    Speaker: Dr. Anton Kolonin, AI/Blockchain Software Architect, SingularityNET Foundation

    Dr. Anton Kolonin earned his PhD in Computer Science from the Institute of Mathematics, Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Science, on the basis of his ground-breaking work in the field of computational geophysics.

In 2014 he founded the AIgents project, upon which 15 research papers have been published. Since 2017, Dr. Kolonin has also served as AI/Blockchain Software Architect for the SingularityNET Foundation.

    Session 2 – AI vs AI: Is the Future of Work Augmented or Artificial Intelligence?

    With all the hype surrounding artificial intelligence, it is easy to forget that true, autonomous AI doesn't exist yet. Instead, most practical and useful solutions are Augemented Intelligence solutions, with the goal of enhancing productivity of individuals and enterprises alike.

    The goal for the panel will be to explore how some of these solutions are helping individuals and businesses increase productivity. We will also be examining the impact these intelligent solutions have on the future of work.
