Explore the power of distributed AI! Boost your idea's and possibillities for the Odyssey Hackathon! In the first part of the meetup we introduce you to the possibillities and the challenges. The second half of the meetup is interactive: focussing on your questions, ambitions & dreams (for the hackathon). Program: 18:30 Doors open, Pizza & hamburgers 19:00 Opening & introduction to Nature2.0 : Fixing the world through crazy hacking- Building the unimaginable Jan-Peter Doomernik (Lead Nature2.0 track of Odyssey.org) Every innovative disruption seems crazy before it is adopted. What seems nuts today may benefit society tomorrow, but only if we get to work, together, in order to build the unimaginable. Technology is not the main challenge. It is us, the humans, who miss out on tons of possibilities because of frozen mindsets. What can we learn from the 8.7 million other animal species, that fulfill their basic needs using ecosystems without ownership, without identity like humans use it, and without money? In the nature2.0 track we ask you to build commons, ecosystems towards abundance or ownerless ecosystems 19:15 Decentralizing AI: Extraordinary Opportunities & stunning examples: Ibby Bernali, Marketing Manager &Data Protection Officer SingularityNet.io Artificial Intelligence is playing a bigger role every day in our lives. One of the biggest questions is how you could make Artificial Intelligence even more intelligent, so that it can reach human-level intelligence, or even beyond that: Artificial General intelligence. Ibby Benali will introduce you to the concept of decentralized micro AI services that can form the world’s global AI brain on the blockchain, and how one of your very own AI services could be part of the bigger whole. 19.30 Data is labor: Arif Kahn Marketing VP SingularityNet.io How should we think about our data within the context of social contracts? Recent embarrassing disclosures by large tech firms has emphasized the importance of our data. Should data be treated as capital? Or should it be more radically categorised as labor given its enormous contribution to the algorithmic supply chain. How should we think about our rights as individuals and can the blockchain facilitate a new paradigm in this domain? 19:50 interaction 1 (Ibby, Arif & JP) : Burning questions- Who do I want to meet during the break? 20.00 break 20.30 interaction 2 (Ibby, Arif & JP): Joined exploration of all your questions (& Moderator) 21.10 Pitch & share: What is your idea to particiapte in the odyssey.org Hackathon? Nature2.0 ready? Doable with AI? An excellent opportunity to craft or finrtune your odyssey –application. 21:25 Wrap up 21:30 Meet & mingle with drinks
Join us for the Program Deepdive to learn more about the concept of Nature 2.0, what we are aiming for and how you can be part of this journey. Join us!

[masked]https://www.odyssey.org/odyssey-hackathon/? THE CHALLENGE Which elements of our day2day life that we deem normal are actually very crazy? And which solutions, that seem crazy can be built, because the only hurdle to pass proves to be our current human narrative, not technology. Disruption, before it happens, is always a crazy: We want you to look for the crazy, the ODD in odyssey. BUILD THE UNIMAGINABLE. 8.7 million animal species have working ecosystems to fulfill their basic needs like housing, eating, transportation, energy… None of these ecosystems are based on ownership, an identity like we use it, or on money. Some of them are not even based on scarcity, but on cooperation resulting in abundant resources. For free. That is unimaginable and crazy for one species, us humans, while a lot of other species are living it. BUILD A COMMONS, AN ECOSYSTEM TOWARDS ABUNDANCE OR AN OWNERLESS ECOSYSTEM. When you choose to enter this challenge, your world will never be the same. We invite you to rethink the system. Check out the dedicated Nature2.ooo website to find resources to build the solutions of tomorrow. A number of friends popped up that have inspiring challenges that could be topics for teams to work on. If you want to accelerate your solution already before the hackathon, these communities are waiting for you to join and assist you on your quest. Please note Nature 2.0 hosts 10 teams for its 1 challenge and a total cash reward of[masked] euro.
In this workshop you will learn how to use the SingularityNET decentralized protocol to sell your AI services on the SingularityNET Marketplace. Our senior engineers will walk you through step-by-step and answer any questions you may have. This workshop is suitable for developers with a basic understanding of command-line tools. You will receive a sample AI service to work with during the workshop.
