Odyssey Hackathon feat. Digital Identity
In the eleventh episode of Untangled we are visiting the world’s biggest blockchain and artificial intelligence hackathon Odyssey, which is the peak of the year for the organisers from Dutchchain, an open innovation program. To hear more about the event, we interviewed the founder himself, Rutger van Zuidam. And to hear more about why the Dutch government takes part in a hackathon and how the development of digital identities is moving ahead, we also interviewed Wouter Welling from the Dutch Interior Ministry. Out of the 99 teams present, 8 of them were using IOTA technology to power their solutions in attempts to solve complex real world problems dictated by a multitude of companies, organisations and ministries. We talked to a couple of them, including Jelle Millenaar from VX Company and Andre Fialho and David Hawig from Untangled Care that were also on the second episode of Untangled, but this time with a different project.
