A Web3, Blockchain & AI innovation Summit

We are super excited to announce that on the 25th and 26th of August 2023, the Civic Center in Victoria Island, Lagos will be the venue for the Decentralized Intelligence: A Blockchain, Web3 and AI Summit.

This summit will bring together experts in the fields of blockchain and artificial intelligence to explore the convergence of these technologies and the opportunities they present for innovation and growth.

With the emergence of Web3, blockchain technology is rapidly transforming industries and creating new opportunities for entrepreneurs and investors. Meanwhile, artificial intelligence is revolutionizing the way we process and analyze data, making it possible to make more informed decisions and create more efficient and effective systems.

The Decentralized Intelligence Summit will explore the ways in which these two technologies are converging, and how they can be used to create new opportunities for wealth creation and economic growth. The summit will feature keynote speeches, panel discussions, and workshops led by experts in the fields of blockchain and AI.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the latest trends and best practices in decentralized systems, including decentralized finance (DeFi), decentralized marketplaces, prediction markets, and autonomous organizations. They will also learn about the latest developments in AI, including machine learning, natural language processing, and computer vision, and how these technologies can be applied in decentralized environments.

Moreover, attendees will have the opportunity to network with fellow professionals and entrepreneurs, share ideas, and forge new partnerships that can help them to take advantage of the opportunities presented by Web3 and AI. They will also be able to connect with investors and financiers who are interested in supporting the growth of decentralized systems and AI-powered businesses.

Decentralized Intelligence refers to a concept of distributing computational power across a network of devices or nodes without relying on a central authority. It combines two emerging fields: Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain technology.

In traditional Artificial Intelligence systems, data is usually collected and processed by a centralized server or cloud computing platform. This centralization can pose problems such as data privacy concerns, security risks, and limitations on scalability. Decentralized Intelligence solves these issues by distributing data processing and storage across multiple devices or nodes, creating a peer-to-peer network.

Decentralized Intelligence relies on blockchain technology to create a trustless and secure environment. Blockchain is a distributed ledger that stores transactions in a tamper-proof and transparent manner. This allows for a secure and transparent way to manage and share data and computational resources without relying on a central authority.

The Decentralized Intelligence Summit is a must-attend event for anyone who is interested in exploring the convergence of blockchain and artificial intelligence and the potential for these technologies to transform industries and create new opportunities for wealth creation and economic growth.

Join us in Lagos, Nigeria, on the 25th and 269th of August 2023, and be part of the conversation that will shape the future of decentralized intelligence.

This event is being powered by Celo Foundation via its CeloAfricaDao initiative.

More information about speaking opportunities, partnerships, and sponsorships is available on the event website;

Here are some of the planned session tracks;

  • Ethical considerations: exploring the ethical considerations surrounding the use of AI in decentralized environments, including issues of bias, fairness, and accountability.
  • Scalability and interoperability: examining the challenges and opportunities of scaling and interoperating decentralized systems and exploring the latest solutions and best practices in this field.
  • Fraud detection: AI-powered fraud detection systems can help businesses to identify and prevent fraudulent activities, including identity theft, credit card fraud, and money laundering.
  • Customer service: AI-powered chatbots and virtual assistants can provide personalized customer service and support, improving customer satisfaction and loyalty.

. ..and lots more!

Speaking and Sponsorship opportunities are available on request.

Our previous conferences have attracted industry thought figures like Prof Kingsley Muoghalu, Dr. Mrs. Oby Ozekwesili, Dr. Andrew Nevin, Dr. Segun Aina, and several eminent personalities favorably disposed to the positive impact of Blockchain Technology in our polity as keynotes.

As a way to enable the use-of-tech, this year’s conference is designed to be unique in a number of ways. First, participants will be able to mint special access NFTs for different aspects of the event and also try out some AI tools on the BNUG website.
