Manage episode 293510840 series 2834549
Having developed a taste for cryptography and security right after school Jon Trask honed his skills in logistics and supply chain. He then moved into emerging technology creating Blockchain Guru with a focus in software development, training and consulting in blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet-of-Things (IoT). In 2020 Jon, with his team at Dimitra, began focusing in the global Agricultural Technology (AgTech) niche with a mission to help small farmers around the world. They plan to enhance farm productivity, improve food safety and enable food security by placing technology and information efficiently in farmer’s hands.
Blockchain offers high security and high immutability i.e. it is near impossible to hack or corrupt, but some challenges do remain. Password security is critical; humans are the weak link. Obstacles also have to be overcome in situations where specific data location is required or where corporate structure creates restrictions. However, artificial intelligence has such special value in its ability to combine, correlate and interrogate large volumes of data efficiently and securely. When used to empower human excellence the sky truly is the limit on where it can go and what can be achieved. The advances in IoT, Blockchain and AI are truly exciting and are revolutionizing multiple areas.
Jon’s success in business can be attributed to facing business challenges head-on, listening to customers, and uniting his team in the direction of the vison, motivation and objectives. They of necessity make course corrections as needed and tweak the business plan to fit the niche; but this is why they are so excited about the difference they make and the creativity they engage. Dimitra has ambitious goals and is establishing mechanisms to revolutionize the ecosystem so that a difference can be made in the lives of many.
