    The Age of Machines: Artificial Intelligence and Smart Contracts

    Canada is at the forefront of the artificial intelligence revolution. From automated marketing funnels to movie trailers and songs edited by computers, the entertainment industry will be profoundly reshaped by this new paradigm shift.

    The most profound impact of Ai will surely be in entertainment law with the appearance of smart contracts, virtual agreements allowing machines to buy and trade digital content according to pre-established deals between buyers and vendors.

    To shed some light on this, David Lametti, digital law professor and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, will be interviewed by Ethan Buchman, CTO at Tendermint and Eszter Biro, policy advisor at the Bitcoin Embassy.
