Blockchain & AI Africa Conference 2020 MarchMar 11 2020 - MarchMar 12 2020 Europe/MadridSandton, África


Are you prepared for the disruption that blockchain technology and other emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) is presenting as part of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR)?

They are shaking up the status quo of several industries, with the potential to manifest in many spheres of operations. AI’s business value in Africa is set to surpass $45bn by 2025. With a population that’s 1,3-billion strong, Africa could leverage its demography to bolster development. Around 60% of Africans are under the age of 25, and the continent has a growing working-age population. It’s a window of opportunity for economic growth, which could be leapfrogged with AI. It is, therefore, becoming increasingly necessary to understand how this growth is being translated into real-world commercial solutions.

Africa's leading Blockchain conference will bring together hundreds of attendees from around the globe to discuss the future and convergence of blockchain technology and AI and how these technologies are addressing urgent challenges in Africa.

The conference will showcase how companies and individuals alike are already using these technologies, what some of the most interesting use cases and applications are, the limitations, security, scaling and implementation issues that exist as well as what regulations are being considered and implemented across various jurisdictions.

WHO WILL ATTEND? With networking high on the agenda for all who attend, the benefits are numerous for attendees and exhibitors alike.
