March 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Technology today is evolving at a rapid pace and it can be hard to know how to keep up when it comes to one’s IT career trajectory. COVID-19 has also made it abundantly clear that the role of an IT professional will not stay the same in this new contactless and digital world. That’s why now is the perfect time to learn more about the emerging and high demand technology career outlook from two experts in their fields, data and AI, and blockchain.
Our speakers:

Mark Caraway, Head of Partnerships at BlockApps, will discuss Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) and how it is being used by enterprises like Bayer and Google. **Fun fact, BlockApps founders were involved in the creation of Swiss-based Ethereum, a decentralized cryptocurrency platform!

Chris McPherson, Head of Data Science and AI at 1848 Ventures, will discuss the importance of data in creating a holistic view of the business and how data is used in natural language processing, economic forecasting, and image recognition.
