 The highly anticipated Blockchain Futurist Conference, Canada’s Largest Web3 Event, is set to return for its sixth year to Toronto this August 13-14, 2024, with a focus on Artificial Intelligence as a core theme. This year’s event promises to offer sessions, panels, and sub-events centered around AI, highlighting how these technologies are transforming Web3 and reshaping our world. The dedicated AI segment is scheduled for Wednesday, August 14, 2024, and is accessible with all conference passes.

AI and Web3 technologies are rapidly converging to create a future that promises to revolutionize the digital landscape. AI’s ability to analyze vast amounts of data, and automate complex processes, complements Web3’s decentralized and transparent framework. This integration enables more secure, and equitable solutions across various sectors.

At this year’s event, attendees can hear from top industry leaders in AI such as:

  • Anthony Di Iorio, Founder, Ethereum, Decentral, Andiami

  • Ben-Zion Benkhin, CEO, WOMBO

  • Ashley Nandan, Google Canada, Startups

Ron Chan, Co-Founder of Inference Labs, and a visionary entrepreneur dedicated to pioneering the future of Decentralized AI had this to say:

“In all my years navigating tech cycles, I have never witnessed the level of developer interest in Artificial Intelligence that we see today. We’re at an inflection point where Internet traffic is roughly split 50/50 between humans and machines. I firmly believe that inference will soon become the dominant form of Internet traffic.”

With two decades of experience as a serial entrepreneur, Ron Chan has successfully navigated the ever-evolving tech industry, leading multiple technology and infrastructure startups to successful exits. His expertise spans architecting data centers, defense projects, and developing mission-critical civil aviation applications, showcasing his versatility and adeptness in managing complex, high-stakes ventures.
