This session aims to demystify ‘Blockchain’.

That word is coming up everywhere now. From new currencies to social media, liquid democracy and money laundering is there anything it can’t do? Sit down with Science fiction writer David Henley and his wonderful guests Prof Liming Zhu (UNSW, Data61) and Dr Daniel Gozman (USyd Business School) for an intriguing discussion on the blockchain as they explore the potential, dangers and opportunities of this new technology.

This conversation will be hosted by Science Fiction Writer, David Henley. David loves science, science fiction and the future. His books are inspired by authors such as Philip K Dick, Peter F Hamilton, Robert Heinlein and Matsumune Shirow. From geopolitical convergence to emergent online super organisms, the future is coming. Henley’s books explore themes of technological evolution, species diversification and takes the ‘all-powerful creepy child’ theme to a scary new level.

Light refreshments from 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
