Spring 2018 issue of Life in Estonia explores AI, blockchain and cyber security

The cover story features engineer, investor and one of the initial creators of Skype and Kazaa Jaan Tallinn, who talks about the existential threat of superintelligence, the boom and real perspective of blockchain and the business opportunities behind it.

You can also read about what is happening in Estonia in cryptocurrencies and blockchain. At a time when most of the world is cautious about cryptocurrencies, it seems Estonia has already embraced it. From the national digital identification system to securing health records of 1.3 million people. The companies Blockhive and Change Bank talk about why they see an advantage in choosing Estonia as their base.

With technology advancing at a rapid pace, the issue of cyber security cannot be overlooked. However, security in the technology field is not just keeping software up to date, but having trained people using computers. Security experts argue that cyber hygiene is the cornerstone of cyber security.

The Portfolio of this issue features the Estonian design brand that can be recognised from afar – leather bags by Stella Soomlais. Read about how the famous leather artist is aiming at zero waste in production.

Last, but not least – as Estonia is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year – take a look at our events calendar to see what highlights are not to be missed this year in Estonia.
