Demystifying Blockchain in 90 minutes!
Seminar taught by R.A. Farrokhnia
April 22, 2020
*Not a recorded session.
Following highly successful Python, Natural Language Processing, AI & Ethics, and Machine Learning seminars, we are pleased to invite you to attend our spring seminar on demystifying blockchain.
If you are interested in learning and understanding what blockchain actually is, and how it works from a fundamental level, then you are in luck! On behalf of the Program for Financial Studies, you are invited to join us for a special online lecture by Prof. R.A. Farrokhnia for a primer on what blockchain is, the underlying technologies that collectively enable it, and how they all come together to empower a new set of tools for innovation in financial services and beyond.
This lecture will take place via Zoom on Wednesday, April 22, 2020 from 12:30-2:00 pm EST. This accessible primer is custom-built for those without a technology background, is for CBS students, faculty and staff only, and does not require any prior technical, math, or computer science knowledge.
