What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in shaping the new Data Economy - estimates show that a $2-5 Trillion Data Economy could be created if organizations and people would have the tools to guarantee control, privacy, security, compliance and pricing of data.

Our target is bringing together curious minds with a background in Data Science, Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Business Innovation and Blockchain. We started this group to build a community of enthusiasts around Data Economy including the following core topic areas:

(1) Data Exchanges & Marketplaces
(2) Data Security, Privacy, Ethics
(3) Decentralised Systems & Blockchain
(4) Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning
(5) Data Curation & Interoperability
(6) New Business Models and Tangible Use Cases

The group is part of the international Data Economy initiative. All skill levels are welcome. We look forward to exploring the opportunities of Data Economy with everybody interested!


Organizers are members and ambassadors of Ocean Protocol, an open data exchange protocol aimed at mix-matching data providers with data analysts.

The vision of the project is to break data silos and unlock data to build AI models for all. It is designed for scale and it uses blockchain technology that allows data to be shared and sold in a safe, secure and transparent manner.

Fostering Collaboration and Empowering AI for Good at Scale

In the age of big data and artificial intelligence (AI), broad, secure access to data on fair terms calls for the creation of a open public data commons. Similarly, to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems at scale using AI calls for the creation of an AI commons that connects AI innovators with public and private-sector decision-makers. Join Ocean Protocol for a special meetup and learn how Ocean’s decentralised data sharing protocol is enabling the United Nations (UN) to develop an open public data commons and AI commons to help guide AI innovation towards the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The session will include special tutorials showing how data scientists can easily integrate Ocean’s innovative decentralised features and tools into their workflow as well as exclusive insights from the 3rd Annual UN AI for Good Summit in Geneva. ACTIVITY Presentation Data Science Demo / Tutorial SPEAKER Trent McConaghy, Ocean Protocol co-founder & CTO Trent did AI research for two decades, including machine creativity and AI to help drive Moore's Law, via two startups (both acquired) and a PhD. Now he focuses on AI * blockchain, via Ocean to democratize AI data, and BigchainDB decentralized database. His hobbies include Token Engineering and advising governments on AI and blockchain. LOCATION To be announced AUDIENCE Data Scientists, Entrepreneurs, AI Professionals, Policy Makers, Software Developers
