Fetch.AI weekly newsletter #005 – New staff, articles and meetups

Hello from the offices of Fetch.AI.

It’s been another week spent working hard under the bonnet.  With our whitelisting live and marketing for Fetch intensifying, it’s an exciting time.  The ledger team are working diligently ahead of the launch of our Test-net in the next few weeks and we have been strengthening our team with new recruits.

Fetch has been boosted by the arrivals of three starters this week.  Maria Minaricova joins us as Senior Programme Manager after nearly 20 years consulting experience at companies including Oracle and GÉANT.  University of Birmingham Associate Professor David Galindo joins the team as Lead Cryptography Engineer.  Finally, King’s College AI research and software engineer Ali Hosseini has begun to apply his expertise on Multi-Agent Systems and logical modelling to our digital world.

We’ve been keen to share our recent progress with the community.  To this end, Senior Machine Learning Scientist Jonathan Ward wrote an article explaining the key factors that were taken into consideration during the design of our unique scalable ledger.  We also featured the second post in our series catching up with different members of the team to see what they are working on.  This week it was the turn of Senior Blockchain Engineer Troels Rønnow.  He writes about how he is building the teams responsible for implementing the ledger and Fetch’s virtual machine.  In my role as Lead Autonomous Economic Agent developer and Head of Community, I recently went in front of the cameras to explain how you will soon be able to create, and deploy, your own agents on the network and I mention some of the things they could do:

This week Chief Executive Humayun Sheikh and Chief Technology Officer Toby Simpson travelled to Toronto and Chicago to hold two meetups where they shared their vision for how Fetch can revolutionise data usage.  We have many more meetups planned over the coming months and we will be announcing the times and locations of these shortly. Before returning from the US, Humayun was also on the panel at the Crypto Finance Conference in California, discussing the importance of ethics in the blockchain, Internet of Things and AI evolution.

Remember, you can get in touch with us via our Twitter, Telegram, Discord, Reddit, YouTube, Medium, Slack and Linkedin accounts.  Alternatively, you can send an email to [email protected].  We’d love to hear from you.
