We offer innovative university degrees taught in English by industry leaders from around the world, aimed at giving our students meaningful and creatively satisfying top-level professional futures. We think the future is bright if you make it so.

Combinatorics and graph theory lay at the heart of discrete mathematics and computer science. In the course, we begin with a brief review of the fundamentals of combinatorics---counting, permutations, binomial coefficients, and the pigeonhole principle---and then devote most of the course to the fundamentals of graph theory. We cover the most common definitions and ideas of graph theory, proving important theorems and introducing important algorithms, but mostly aiming to simply establish the common language of discrete mathematics and computer science.

Anish has been working in the field of security and cryptography for the last 19 years, both as a researcher and a consultant.

Over the past five years he has become more involved in the Blockchain ecosystem as one of the founding members of the United Kingdom Digital Currency Association (UKDCA). He has advised and worked for various banks and financial institutions including AIB, HSBC, Lloyds and Zurich. He is also on the advisory boards of Adjoint, Arteia, Devvio, Hyper-loop Transport Technologies, Privacy Shell, Collider-X, Glance Technologies, IEET, EA Ventures, Ripple Labs and Chain of Things.

His main focus is currently to work on projects involving security, scalability and consensus of blockchains, using smart contracts for AI safety, cryptoeconomics, and token engineering, including the design of over a dozen blockchain protocols. Anish is a regular speaker and contributor in the areas of AI, cybersecurity, fintech and blockchain. He is also the cofounder of Ethicsnet, cofounder & CTO of Ontici, Chief Science Officer at Blockchainsmokers, and head of research at the Information Sciences Institute at SRH Berlin.

This module introduces and demystifies blockchain, its core characteristics and limitations, and more importantly helps frame the key questions to ask in order to get the most out of this powerful technology;  when can it provide an efficient solution and when does it become overkill!

KEY QUESTIONS 
IN BLOCKCHAIN

Although Bitcoin has made a lot of headlines since its mysterious appearance on the international stage in 2009, it is really the blockchain technology behind it which has the potential to transform the financial industry.   

From developing blockchain-based digital assets and financial instruments, to keeping track of ownership of property through secure private ledgers, the underlying “distributed trustless consensus” structure opens the doors to a more secure, cost-effective and market-transparent alternative to just relying on the trust and services traditionally provided by large financial institutions.
