Blockchain for Europe travels to the Baltics and Finland
As a founding member of Blockchain for Europe, Fetch.AI attended a series of meetings in Finland and the Baltic region this week. The three-nation tour started in Estonia discussing blockchain and cryptoassets with the Financial Supervision Authority and Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Estonia.
This was followed by meeting the leaders of the Treasury, the FIN-FSA and tax authority in Finland. The tour ended in Lithuania where we met with the leaders of the Ministry of Finance, the Bank of Lithuania and Blockchain Centre Vilnius.
Vice-Chair of Blockchain for Europe Dan Morgan said: “Finland’s EU presidency comes at a time when Europe is focused on how to regulate digital assets, the Lithuanian Central Bank continues to innovate in Regtech, supervision and attitudes to blockchain.”
Blockchain for Europe represents international blockchain industry players at the EU-level. The board includes chairman Kristof Van de Reck (NEM Europe) and vice-chairs Dan Morgan (Ripple), Manmeet Singh (Emurgo/Cardano) and Maria Minaricova (head of business development at Fetch.AI). The aim is to contribute to the debate by supporting European decision makers in their goal to make blockchain a success.

3rd International Workshop on Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain Technology 2019 (26–27 September, Luxembourg)
Fetch.AI head of cryptography David Galindo has co-authored a 论文 with researchers from the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) in Shenzhen, China. It will be presented at the 3rd International Workshop on Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain Technology 2019 (CBT’19).
This new work proposes a privacy-friendly mechanism for anonymity revocation for anonymous credentials. Such a mechanism is an essential component of the use of credential systems in the enterprise and governmental environments, since unconditional anonymity is incompatible with pursuing and sanctioning credential misuse or abuse.
Diffusion 2019 (19–20 October, Berlin, Germany)

Tech Dives: Do Blockchain & AI work together?
We had a fantastic evening in London this week discussing the importance of enabling blockchain and AI technologies to connect and realize their full potential.
CTO Toby Simpson kicked off proceedings by talking about Fetch.AI’s vision for a decentralized new world. He highlighted the importance of making the most of the vast quantity of data our digital selves generate everyday by using it to inform models that can deliver insights and value in real-time.
Toby then moderated a lively panel debate featuring:
○ Laurence Kirk, Founder of Extropy.io, a consultancy working with start-ups in the UK and overseas to develop blockchain solutions
○ David Wood, Chair of London Futurists and Board Advisor at Singularity Studio
○ Dr. Irene Lopez de Vallejo, Founding Team Member Ocean Protocol
○ Fernando Martinho, Co-Founder and CTO of Naoris, a distributed cybersecurity ecosystem that re-engineers the way cybersecurity is thought about and delivered.
The panel discussed the opportunities for blockchain and AI to disrupt different industries and the importance of using the technologies to develop a deeper level of understanding in order to deliver real value.
Arbot — a Fetch.AI-Ocean integration
Check out ArBot: a new data arbitrage tool developed by Outlier Ventures for moving datasets between the Fetch.AI and Ocean Protocol marketplaces. Find out how it enables profit-making opportunities to be identified.
We were included in GSMA Intelligence’s latest Radar report which explored the role data hubs play in the Economy of Things. Interoperability between devices is a key outcome of Fetch.AI’s decentralized vision of the future. Read the full report 此处.
○ Landed our long-running integration branch for consensus on to master in preparation for the upcoming beta mainnet release
○ Added quality of life features like allowing the Etch interpreter to process multiple files
○ Reworked several ml ops’ serialization to be more data efficient (dropout, matrix multiply, layer norm)
