Bitcoin and the Blockchain are changing the way people think about currency, digital assets, and identity. The MIT Media Lab recently launched a promising new initiative to delve into the implications of these innovative technologies.
Please join Microsoft and the Institute for Education on July 27th as Brian Forde, MIT Media Lab's Director of Digital Currency and former senior technology advisor at the White House, and Chelsea Barabas, MIT Media Lab's Senior Advisor for Social Impact at the Digital Currency Initiative, lead a discussion focused on the potential of the Blockchain. During this talk they will look at Blockchain as a foundation for fraud-free voting, frictionless transfer of property in blighted urban environments, and rapid response in the wake of a natural disaster, to name just a few applications.
We hope you will join us for this important conversation.
