From deep fakes that can co-opt a person’s likeness for fake videos, to AI-generated images, such as the image of the Pentagon exploding which destabilised the S&P 500, AI has made the world a less reliable place.

Providing provenance for content, data, and online identity credentials is becoming increasingly urgent, and as a technology defined by its traceability and security, blockchain is rapidly becoming the antidote.

Join us for an evening at Platf9rm Hove with Kitty Horlick and an expert panel, exploring how blockchain technology will reshape and redefine the online landscape as we transition to Web3.

Come away with valuable insights on navigating the landscape of misinformation, safeguarding your business from the impact of AI-generated threats, and discover how blockchain can be the antidote to ensure content, data, and online integrity in an increasingly uncertain world.

About Kitty Horlick…

Kitty is the founder of Blackwood, a consultancy firm focused on onboarding traditional businesses into emergent technologies including AI and web3-associated technologies such as blockchain, NFTs, the metaverse and cryptocurrencies. As well as running Blackwood, she is a Director at Rarify Labs which is counteracting the threat of AI to digital identities and content provenance through blockchain-based solutions.

A long-term adopter of, and investor in cryptocurrencies and NFTs with over six years of experience in the space, she joined Ehab – a start-up devoted to revolutionising the construction industry through blockchain – as early as 2017. She is an insider, deeply embedded in the industry and with her finger closely on the pulse of the latest trends and challenges. In 2023 Kitty was the expert chosen to appear on a BBC Radio 4 programme examining crypto, blockchain and web3.

Though a deep believer in the disruptive potentials of AI, blockchain, the metaverse, and NFTs, Kitty is not an evangelist. Her focus as a speaker and consultant is on delineating the substance from the hype, and deftly identifying both the opportunities, limitations, and threats that these technologies present.
