PICANTE TECH Conference Europe gives you the unique opportunity to meet a real-life cyborg this September in Prague.

 

The term ‘cyborg’ is defined as ‘a person whose physical abilities are extended beyond normal human limitations’. If you think that this is still just science fiction or comic books, you must be living in a cave or never conducted any serious research about.

The technology behind it might seem as if it’s from another world, but these tweaks and additions to the human body could be regarded as another way of looking at human evolution. Even though they may not feel like a natural addition to the human body, the intelligence needed to create the tech is a credit to the intellectual evolution of modern man.

Just recently, Elon Musk revealed first details of an electronic brain implant developed by Neuralink, the secretive company he founded back in 2016 to facilitate direct communications between people and machines. Neuralink is part of the crowded and fast-expanding field of companies that are engaged in neurotechnology. The neurotechnology industry consists of hundreds of companies and academic labs which are developing different types of interface between brains and computers for medical and recreational purposes. However, the only one flaunting “symbiosis with AI” as a business goal is the above mentioned Neuralink.

During the inaugural PICANTE TECH Conference Europe (TCE2019), which will take place in Prague on the 3rd of September at Vienna House Andel’s Prague, you have the unique opportunity to meet Manel Muñoz, real life cyborg and hear what the technology can bring in order to shape superhumans.

The master of ceremonies for the Fireside Chat will be Konrad Gill (Founder and Creative Director of ViARsys)

Manel Muñoz (Barcelona,1996) is a Catalan perceptual artist based in Barcelona, best known for developing and installing a cybernetic sensory organ to perceive changes in atmospheric pressure in his body. The barometric organ allows him to perceive the arrival of cyclones and anticyclones via beat frequencies transmitted through the skull. Depending on the input perceived, he can predict weather changes as well as feel at what altitude he is in.

Muñoz studied contemporary photography in Barcelona and became ‘s artist in residence in 2016. In 2017, he co-founded the Transpecies Society, an association that gives voice to people who do not identify as being 100% human and raises awareness on the issues they face. The association, based in Barcelona, offers workshops specialized in the design and creation of new sensory organs.

Muñoz has shared his experience as a cyborg artist by performing and speaking in conferences and festivals in Germany, UK, Romania, Spain, and The Netherlands among others.

PICANTE Tech Conference Europe is designed to bring both people and knowledge together and provides the excellent ecosystem of networking and learning opportunities without interruptions with emphasis on comfort and communication. After learning from genuine world-class experts and wayseers, meeting achievers shaping the B2B ecosystem, all attendees will get the chance to grab a drink and relax while networking at the evening social gathering.

CyberSecurity – The dangers that lurk in the IoT segment and beyond, Keynote Session with Martin Stoefler (OSM Solutions) at TCE2019 Prague

Published

on

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

IT Security specialist to share key information about the dangers that lurk in the IoT segment at PICANTE TECH Conference Europe 2019.

 

IoT security has recently become the subject of the examination after a number of high-profile incidents where a common IoT device was used to infiltrate and attack the larger network has happened. Implementing security measures is critical to ensuring the safety of networks with IoT devices connected to them and a number of challenges prevent the securing of IoT devices and ensuring end-to-end security in an IoT environment.

The idea of networking appliances and other objects is relatively new, security has not always been considered top priority during a product’s design phase.

A major issue which is often reported with IoT security is the use of hardcoded or default passwords, which can lead to security breaches. Even if passwords are changed, they are often not strong enough to prevent infiltration.

Another common issue facing IoT devices is that they are often resource-constrained and do not contain the compute resources necessary to implement strong security.

At PICANTE TECH Conference Europe (TCE2019), which will take place in Prague on the 3rd of September at Vienna House Andel’s Prague, Martin Stoefler, Co-Founder & Compliance Expert at OSM Solutions will highlight the key aspect of IT Security and CyberSecurity when it comes to dealing with IoT and AIoT.

Learn about the best IEO fundraising practices with Valentin Preobrazhenskiy (CEO and Founder of LATOKEN) at TCE2019 Prague

Published

on

Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Top entrepreneur and speaker in the capital markets transition space to explain the best fundraising practices when launching an IEO and also teach how to build a team and prototype with a unicorn potential at PICANTE TECH Conference Europe 2019.

 

Let’s start by explaining what an IEO is and what are the trends that are sweeping across the token industry.

An Initial Exchange Offering, as its name suggests, is conducted on the platform of a cryptocurrency exchange. Contrary to Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), an IEO is administered by a crypto exchange on behalf of the startup that seeks to raise funds with its newly issued tokens.

As the token sale is conducted on the exchange’s platform, token issuers have to pay a listing fee along with a percentage of the tokens sold during the IEO. In return, the tokens of the crypto startups are sold on the exchange’s platforms, and their coins are listed after the IEO is over. As the cryptocurrency exchange takes a percentage of the tokens sold by the startup, the exchange is incentivized to help with the token issuer’s marketing operations.

The main advantages of launching an IEO on a cryptocurrency platform is trust and security.

IEO participants do not send contributions to a smart contract, such as governs an ICO. Instead, they have to create an account on the exchange’s platform where the IEO is conducted. The contributors then fund their exchange wallets with coins and use those funds to buy the fundraising company.

One of the main advantages of IEOs is trust. As the crowd sale is conducted on a cryptocurrency exchange platform the counterparty screens every project that seeks to launch an IEO on its website. Exchanges do this to maintain their good reputation by carefully vetting token issuers.

Therefore, IEOs can eliminate scam and dubious projects from raising funds via cryptocurrency exchange platforms, and it becomes much harder to scam contributors with IEOs.

Token issuers do not have to worry about crowd sale security as the exchange is managing the IEO’s smart contract. The KYC/AML process is also handled by the crypto exchange as most service providers do KYC/AML on their customers after they create their accounts.

During PICANTE TECH Conference Europe (TCE2019), which will take place in Prague on the 3rd of September at Vienna House Andel’s Prague, you have the unique opportunity to hear first-hand from industry expert, Valentin Preobrazhenskiy (CEO and Founder of LATOKEN), about what the best practices are for launching a successful campaign when raising funds via an IEO.

Valentin will touch base on the following main bullet points:

– How to build a team and prototype with a unicorn potential?

– How to launch Landing templates which sell?

– How to attract 1m target audience and convert into contributions?
