Date: Sunday, December 2nd / Time: 14:30 / Venue: Samsara, The Park Chennai / Event Type: TV, Film, Culture Conference

The entertainment industry has become dominated increasingly by a few internet giants. These creative gatekeepers get to decide what films and TV shows get made, and more importantly, which ones make it onto people's screens at home. Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionise this constricting system. Small-scale funding can pour in from investors around the world, eventually even gaining attention from major financiers. Ashley Turing will be presenting how blockchain technology and the predictive power of artificial intelligence (AI) will help small-and medium-scale producers fund their projects and reach their audiences.
