AI, Blockchain and Open Source are terms which continually grab attention, but are they merely buzzwords or will they really disrupt our industry?  In a series of webinars we’ll look at each technology in turn to separate the hype from the reality. We’ll look at examples of where these technologies are already being used in our industry. We’ll assess their potential for positive change as well as considering  alternative courses of action.

Attendees will gain an understanding of what these technologies really offer, the potential steps they could take to begin engaging and working with them and the importance of considering how these technologies should fit within wider product, platform or technology strategies.

The second webinar in this series of three will look at AI (artificial intelligence).

Other webinars in the series:
