Cluj-Napoca Mayor Emil Boc will hold the opening speech at Business Review’s MindChain conference, the biggest event focused on blockchain and AI ever held in Romania, taking place on February 21-22 in Cluj-Napoca.
Emil Boc will open the event with a speech promoting the adoption of emerging technologies like blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) in major business sectors, local public administration and at the government level.
His speech is scheduled to begin on February 21, the first of two days of MindChain, at 9:45 am.
Cluj-Napoca has been dubbed Romania’s Silicon Valley due to the unique mix of tech companies and strong student community. The city’s public administration has been involved in many unique initiatives for the startup ecosystem and smart city development, and encouraged citizen participation in public policy through participatory budgeting projects.
Over two days, between 21-22 February, in Cluj-Napoca, MindChain will explore the interaction between Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
The key proposition, reflected across the entire agenda, is that AI powers and enhances one of the most revolutionary technologies to have emerged in recent years.
With a 30-strong panel agenda featuring international speakers and key figures on the Blockchain scene, MindChain will bring forward the latest use cases for Blockchain and AI across a comprehensive mix of industries, such as retail, finance and banking, real estate, transportation, as well as emerging areas such as art, entertainment and media.
Through its architecture, MindChain is designed to attract a varied audience, from blockchain investors and professionals to startups, students and the general public interested to discover how these new technologies will shape everyday life.
