Anita Schjøll Brede is CEO of Iris.ai - 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.

Blokechain back in town! Check out our Live Video Recordings from Disney’s Epcot

Like a pair of drunken Doctor Whos, Mark and Ian travel back in time and travel around the world to bring you the blockchain news and views.

It’s been a whole year since Mark Beauchamp and Ian Collins got involved with the Blockchain Show team.

To commomorate our anniversary, and to celebrate Ian’s birthday The Blokes meet up at Disney’s Epcot, have some cheeky beers, deploy some rather dubious accents and borderline xenophobia, and visit each country in the World Showcase, to see video of what’s going on in the Blockchain space visit the show notes

Sam Rusani is the Chief Revenue Officer at ShipChain.io, a blockchain based solution provider for the transport and logistics industry.

Imagine a fully integrated system across the entire supply chain, from the moment a shipment leaves the factory, to the final delivery on the customer’s doorstep; federated in trustless, transparent blockchain contracts. This is ShipChain.

The ShipChain platform is based on a simple, yet powerful solution called “Track and Trace.”

Their ecosystem will encompass all methods of freight, and will include an open API architecture that can integrate with existing freight management software.

In his second book, "The Age of Anomaly" Andrei Polgar predicts the next global financial crisis. The worst part is, the average person will most likely be blindsided due to a complete lack of basic financial preparedness.
 
Andrei is one of the few economists out there who specializes in
exotic assets such as domain names (perhaps the only economist who covered the short domain mania of 2015-2016) and, of course, crypto. http://oneminuteeconomics.com/
 
Blockchain Show co-hosts Ian Collins and Ethan discuss topics such as cryptocurrencies and Blockchain in the context of the
next global financial crisis.

Decentralized ledgers are secure and unbreakable until…. quantum computing. The Quantum Supremacy race between China, USA and Europe is on…Quantum computers are coming faster than anticipated.

Adam Koltun, Evangelist for the Quantum Resistant Ledger and Co-Hosts Ian and Ethan discuss the Quantum technology threat and security challenges for distributed ledgers and what it means for the current cryptocurrency landscape.

 
  • The reality of a adding Quantum resistance to existing blockchains. (Hint: It is easier to implement changes in the initial codebase than to add them later.)

  • We don’t need (should not) to wait for Quantum Supremacy

  • A single actor could disrupt the cryptocurrency economy at any time

  • Companies are making a lot of public progress / while Government programs have likely made more progress than they advertise

  • Upgrading in cryptocurrency is not easy. BTC is an example of political struggles

  • The future quantum resistant ledger
