IBM BLOCKCHAIN WORKSHOP

Unblock your Blockchain Potential

Blockchain developers now rank SECOND among the top 20 fastest-growing job skills, and job postings for workers with those skills have more than doubled this year.

Taking second fiddle only to robotics specialists, blockchain technologists are advertising their services for as much as $115 per hour, according to Upwork, an employment site that specializes in freelance workers.

We are seeing the technology being considered for skills certification and licensing as well as provenance of infrastructures (energy, water, buildings, transportation) and machinery.

Frank Abagnale : Keynote Speaker
One of the world’s top fraud prevention experts, the “Catch Me If You Can” author shares critical lessons in the world of security, helping business and government organizations stay a step ahead of the cybercriminals.

Catch Me If You Can
Frank Abagnale provides entertaining insight into his life as the notorious imposter of the 1960s; a thrilling story told in the award-winning movie and Broadway musical, Catch Me If You Can. By age 21, Abagnale was known as America’s most gifted con man, successfully impersonating an airline pilot, pediatrician, stockbroker, college professor, and assistant attorney general, all while cashing $2.5 million in forged checks. Audiences will experience an emotional roller coaster ride as motivational speaker Frank Abagnale describes his escapades and reveals how he learned to live on the right side of the law.

Fraud Seminar: The Art of the Steal
In this unique seminar, con man turned crime stopper Frank Abagnale provides the latest information to protect institutions, associations and corporations from embezzlement, forgery, counterfeit currency, check fraud, identity theft, and Internet fraud. He describes white collar crime techniques, liability concerns under the new Uniform Commercial Code, and demonstrates the latest document features and equipment. Abagnale combines his expertise with anecdotes from his time as one of the world’s most successful con men, for a timely, insightful and informative presentation.

Blind Ambition – an interdisciplinary research and outreach effort pioneering assistive solutions for people who are blind and visually impaired.
Dr. Mohammed Yeasin, Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering

This research focuses on understanding non-verbal communications that spawned a new avenue for developing affect enabled dyadic conversation(i.e., Expression+, Expression, EmoAssist, i-FEPS, i-MAPS). Designing an adaptive assistive technology solution requires an understanding of the user’s need as set by their disability and their ability to perform the system-aided tasks with minimal cognitive effort. We introduced the notion of assistive thinking – a seamless blend of participatory design, and design thinking to develop technology solutions. In addition, we introduced modeling cognitive ability-demand gaps and collaborative sense-making to design personalized systems.

Dr. Yeasin is an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Memphis and a Data Scientist. He is the recipient of National Science Foundation (NSF) Career Grant, Senior Member of the IEEE and Associate Editor of two peer reviewed Journals (BMC Bioinformatics and PRML). He has practiced machine learning for 15 years in the field of Bioinformatics, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Vision, Cognitive Engineering, Human Computer Interaction and Assistive Technology.
