Fetch.AI weekly newsletter #014 – A bumper edition

Hello from the team at Fetch.AI,
 
The last couple of weeks have flown by so in this newsletter we’ll be catching up with everything that has been happening since our last edition.  
 
Firstly, chief executive Humayun Sheikh sat down with The Crypto Lark to discuss the development of Fetch.AI’s smart ledger and the impact our technology will have.

We also attended a mini hackathon in Berlin with our friends Ocean Protocol. There will be a lot more to talk about here in the future.

One announcement we are delighted to make is that we have joined the Railway Industry Association (RIA), an industry body representing the interests of more than 230 suppliers to the UK’s rail industry. The move is designed to further strengthen our relationships with the industry as it explores the potential of Autonomous Economic Agents to optimise complex systems within the UK’s rail network.

Several other exciting announcements are on the way, and a clue to one of these may have slipped out this week on Twitter from John Calian, the Head of T-Labs:

Outside our Cambridge offices, we have also set up a wireless weather forecaster. We’re collecting data from the sensors on the instrument as part of Fetch’s wider vision for weather prediction and data access.

We have also spoken at several conferences recently. At the IoTBuild Summit our CTO Toby Simpson outlined how Fetch’s technology is set to revolutionise tomorrow’s economy, and at Healthcare Unblocked, Humayun discussed how the application of blockchain technologies could improve the industry.

On the topic of healthcare, we thoroughly recommend reading this article for an insight into how the industry will change in the future and our ongoing efforts to enhance it.

Tuesday was a particularly busy day this week, with Humayun speaking at the Cambridge China Forum and several members of the team travelling to London for a meetup in the capital. Thanks to everyone who attended. We enjoyed talking about our Open Economic Forum and how we will be involving the developer community in the months ahead. If you were not able to make it to the evening, we will be sharing a recording of the meetup in the newsletter next week.

Today Senior Programme Manager Maria Minaricova, AI and Machine Learning Lead Richard Dearden and Head of Software Engineering Troels Rønnow are in Frankfurt. They’re attending a Trusted IoT Alliance mobility hackathon as well as a conference hosted by Bosch and the Frankfurt School Blockchain Centre.

The current state of the markets may not make for a pretty picture, but as you can see, we’re continuing to make great progress nonetheless.
 
Have a good weekend.
