Leading blockchain research firm nChain is in Dubai at the invitation of Harmonis International, Intermid and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government, discussing the latest developments in AI and blockchain technology.
nChain, led by chief scientist and Bitcoin creator Dr. Craig S Wright, was invited to participate in a two-day workshop event, designed to explore issues around Dubai and the UAE’s move towards a greater reliance on blockchain.
Among the topics up for discussion is how the open blockchain can support Dubai’s transition to a smart city, a key tenet of the city’s Blockchain Strategy 2021.
The event will also explore how the government can make better use of blockchain technology towards achieving national priorities, as well as reaching its UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The event is being organized for the benefit of representatives from each of the organizations involved, as well as from the UAE government. Representatives from the 7 emirates will also be in attendance to learn more about the issues around AI and blockchain, and how they relate to achieving these objectives for the UAE.
