Michael is the Founder and CEO of Lightstreams, a blockchain protocol for greater dApp speed and privacy.

He takes issue with the hype surrounding blockchain technology as a one-size-fits-all approach, and believes that we should view distributed ledgers as part of a suite of complementary technologies that can be used to usher in the advent of a decentralized internet. Central to this belief is the need for a combination of distributed off-chain storage, to enable cheap storage of files and privacy that is otherwise non-existent on a public ledger.

Anita Schjøll Brede is CEO of - the company using AI to help speed up the research process for academic and corporate R&D – which has recently launched its Project Aiur. This is the project that will use AI and Blockchain to allow scientists to semi-automate the time-consuming process of checking the factual base of any research hypothesis.

The goal of Project Aiur is to liberate researchers and academics from a publishing system of misaligned incentives that encourages them to exaggerate facts and omit assumptions as they are told to produce quantity of research over quality. As it stands such practices are deemed acceptable in an industry that lacks accountability and is driven solely by profit rather than a commitment to the betterment of scientific progress.
