Let’s get started with your perspective on the event. What is your expectation about the AIBC event?
As we are a Web3 agency in the space for more than 27 years, our firm looks for opportunities to incorporate new technology. Significantly, ChatGPT is popular and AI seems to buzz around the space, I am looking ahead at how to integrate AI into Web3. So, I came to this conference to exchange information and to figure out the ways to implement AI concepts as it’s the future of digital space.
Who do you look forward to meeting at this event?
Yeah, I have connections with a few prominent figures in the crypto industry who are attending the event. In a way to support them and make new business connections would be my core idea to attend this conference.
Do you think that Dubai is the global crypto hub?
Yes, of course, Dubai is the first city in the world to announce the Dubai Metaverse Strategy. Moreover, the crypto hub in Dubai got more than 1500 businesses registered. Following that, the government is currently working on regulations for the space so there is no doubt that Dubai is the crypto hub.
Most interesting application in Blockchain or Web3?
I see an interesting one from healthcare, where a company in Italy is developing a metaverse of senses. This platform allows users to smell any organ in the body virtually. Using this tech through the metaverse makes the work for doctors more flexible. It provides 90% accuracy of the smell, thus doctors can detect the state of the organ remotely. Secondly, I would say it’s fashion brands that allow avatars to try outfits and it seems interesting. Digital outfit try-ons and attires are sustainable options for planet Earth
Your opinions on the bank crash that happened last week?
It’s saddening that everything is global and interconnected. If one bank goes down in California then it takes the rest of the world down with it. From my perspective, Banks should have more regulation and transparency which is possible with Blockchain technology. As banks adopt blockchain, there will be fewer scams while trust, security, and transparency will be built.
