Global Art Forum 12: I AM DISTRIBUTED: AT THE FRONTIERS OF THE BLOCKCHAIN by Art Dubai published on 2018-04-11T10:53:21Z Global Art Forum 12: "I Am Not A Robot" Theorist Jaya Klara Brekke and Architect and Musician Martti Kalliala, Hosted by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Ben Vickers The blockchain is a database validated by a global community, and backed by code/math, rather than a central authority.
