On May 26, 2021, 11AM US East time, NKN and Wolfram Research successfully held a research conference on distributed consensus and cellular automata. This event has attracted more than 600 real-time audiences on YouTube, Zoom and Twitch with an amazing speaker lineup including Dr. Stephen Wolfram (Author of “A New Kind of Science’’, Chief Designer of Mathematica and Wolfram Language and Wolfram Alpha), Dr. Yilun Zhang (CTO of NKN) and other guests from internationally renowned universities and crypto projects such as Boston University, IOTA, AVA Labs, etc.

As part of Wolfram Physics Project, NKN advisor Dr. Stephen Wolfram touched upon NKN as an example of distributed computing and using Cellular Automata for consensus algorithm.
