Interview with Dr. Dave Roberts - Comp Sci Professor & Startup Founder
Doctor Dave Roberts is not only a Professor of Computer Science at NC State where he runs their CIIGAR lab which stands for Computational Intelligence and Interactive Games Research lab, but he is also the co-founder of a Silicon Valley startup. Dr. Roberts’ got his undergrad degree in Math and Computer Science, and went on to study, what he called “Interactive Virtual Experiences” at Georgia Tech, but which he admits is just an academic way of saying “Computer Games.” He views games as cultural artifacts and important platforms for Artificial Intelligence research and seeks to use them as a window into human behavior by incorporating concepts from social psychology and observing how they manifest themselves in game play. Given his area of expertise, as well as his experience going from a tech-outsider to a startup co-founder, we believe that the insights Dr. Roberts can provide to anyone trying to build a business in the blockchain space is invaluable.

As an entrepreneur who has been delivering one of the few real blockchain-powered products to users for years, Yung-Hwi's insights into building a tech business in the blockchain space are priceless.
If you'd like to learn more about their new product, Reviewhunt, you can skip to minute 52. In short, companies can gain access to the platforms "Hunters" by purchasing Review credits. Those Review credit purchases will then be linked directly to the exchange markets through their API, generating demand for the token. That means that as they expand their sales, and grow the reach of their product, that should create non-speculative demand for their token.
