Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) have created an exciting new area of research at the intersection of computer science, art, law, and economics. The event featured the unveiling of an artist-made glass projection screen showcasing a gallery of NFTs that represent the latest NFT research from IC3. It also featured talks highlighting advances in NFT technology from faculty and students across a range of disciplines.
Our thanks to Eirik Ulversøy, a.k.a. Kitten Mittens, and to Dapper Labs for their generous loan of historically important and rare CryptoKitties for our experiment at the event in the psychology of NFT viewing.
Thank you for your participation and we hope to see you at future IC3 events!
