In the seventh episode of Untangled we are continuing in the realm of research and are talking to the IOTA Foundation's new Director of Research, Moody Alam, and one of the IOTA originals and author of the IOTA Whitepaper, Serguei Popov. They are giving an overview of what the Research Department was and is, and an introduction to the IOTA Research Council. They also have some words and numbers to share about the progress of their top priority, Coordicide.
For the sixth episode of Untangled we went to Barcelona to follow the IOTA Foundation Research Summit 2019. The entire Research Department was for the first time ever all gathered in the same place and many fruitful discussions, ideas and possible solutions came out of it. The two main topics at ReSum were Coordicide and Attack Analysis, which Alon Gal, Research Scientist on the Coordicide Team, and Bartosz Kuśmierz, Research Scientist on the Attack Analysis Team, will discuss on this episode of Untangled. Besides these two technical topics, Alon and Bartosz are also sharing their impressions on the experience of ReSum, the value of teamwork in the scientific field of work and the process of researching uncharted waters.
