Blockchain UNAM

Blockchain UNAM is a grassroots alliance of faculty, students, researchers, and industry partners interested in Blockchain at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). Our mission is to bring together an interdisciplinary group of people to share ideas, collaborate on research, and advance teaching related to Blockchain. We have organized Blockchain events that are usually composed of: (1) Speakers; (2) Micro-Hackathon; and (3) Networking.

Blockchain Speakers. 🎀

Our Blockchain talks always have one or more invited speakers who are creating novel technology with IBM Watson. The talks aim to expose and inspire audiences to the novel things you can do with IBM Watson.

Blockchain Micro-Hackathon.πŸ”¨ πŸ’»

Our Talks have the tradition of holding a micro-hackathon where we come together as a community and build together novel applications with Blockchain. These micro-hackathons bring together people from diverse areas (healthcare, computer science, public policy) with the purpose of producing novel tech that can more broadly impact society. Our micro-hackathons also facilitate sharing knowledge and collectively becoming powerful technology innovators. Knowledge sharing includes information about how to use IBM Watson to build novel technology; as well as knowledge on the research areas that might benefit from IBM Watson. Our aim is also to use the mini hackathons as a way to establish interesting long term and impactful projects with IBM Watson.

Blockchain Networking. πŸ™Œ

Our Talks always have a networking component to help people connect and build meaninful relationships that lead to novel proyects and ventures that use Blockchain.
