Agenda for Aug 15th:
- Talk by Kris Meyers, producer for major Hollywood films
- Live blockchain demo for music and film by Arjun Mendhi, CEO at MTonomy
- Mingle and meet new people!

About the event: join a community of musicians and innovators, in the conversation, design and test of a transparent, efficient, and equitable media industry of the future.

The media industry is at an inflection point and there is need to rethink old methods and standards of publishing, licensing and monetizing media content (music, flim, photos, books, etc.). Here’s your chance to ask fundamental questions, have your opinions heard, and apply your skills, be it in music composition/ recording/ marketing, computer science, A.I. or blockchain, to make a definitive impact on the future of media.

Attend this event to learn about the experiences of various artists, current research in the fields of blockchain and A.I. related to media, and compelling areas for further research and experimentation. Attendees will have access to the meetups and online community, to share and learn from one another (you may join remotely too).

There are various individuals and organization doing excellent work in this space, and we would like to further those efforts. These community-driven meetups are hosted by MTonomy, a media research startup out of MIT based in Cambridge, MA. MTonomy will share its research with the community, and provide free access to its beta platform, including music publishing/streaming for artists and APIs for developers.
