When and where is it on?
Tuesday, 23 October 2018 from 08:00 to 10:00 (IST) Talbot Hotel Stillorgan
How many years has it been going?
CeADAR has been running a number of public and member events held throughout the year for the past 5 years
What was the inspiration to start it?
We want our member companies to understand, evaluate and implement Data Analytics & Machine Learning technology. However, Blockchain is often misunderstood, and industry is struggling to understand when Blockchain might be the best technology available to solve a particular problem, and when it is not.
What exciting things can people look forward to?
CeADAR & Industry experts will introduce the concept of Blockchain; highlight when Blockchain is and is not the best technology for particular use cases; and, in collaboration with some industry partners, highlight some specific uses of Blockchain technology developed by CeADAR for industry use.
What opportunities are on offer for those attending?
From 8.00am we will also have some of our Poster demonstrators on display, along with CeADAR data scientists to talk you through them. You can check out a sample of our demonstrators on https://www.ceadar.ie/outputs/our-demos
Who will be speaking?
Oisin Boydell & David Haughton (CeADAR)

What tips would you give to people attending to get the most out of it?
Come early and network, the event starts at 8.00 with coffee and a continental breakfast. Check out our posters and have a chat with the data scientists working on the projects.
