Keynote by Nell Watson

Crytomics - A smarter, kinder and trustworthy way to build a better world.

This talk explores the latest developments in Machine Intelligence, Blockchain and the emerging discipline of Machine Ethics. The confluence of these three domains is creating revolutionary new ways of organising society and building trust between individuals and institutions. This can enable a massive increase in global human wellbeing in the coming decade - if we get it right.
