  • How to Keep Real Life Artificial Intelligence Fit
    How to Keep Real Life Artificial Intelligence Fit
    Gary Richardson, MD, Emerging Technology, 6point6 Recorded: Feb 12 2019 32 mins
    AI, machine and deep learning are making strides in organisations. However, the results of the projects will start to lose their effectiveness as the business environment evolves over time. In order to keep the AI fit and effective you need to rapidly evolve into Model Operations or ModelOps.

    This talk will cover how ModelOps will keep AI fit and consistently deliver business value by:
    - Keeping an eye on model performance
    - Capturing and retraining models whilst constantly engineering features
    - Providing model explainability so all stakeholders can interpret the results
    - Generating the decision vault to capture the inputs, model and outputs
    - Confirming the decision by enabling parallel consideration

    Rather than provide you real world examples of AI in action we will give you a peak behind the machine of how you keep AI working in the real world.

  • Blockchain Technology – Disrupt or Get Disrupted
    Blockchain Technology – Disrupt or Get Disrupted
    Philip Blake, Country Manager (UK & EU), EC-Council Recorded: Jan 29 2019 50 mins
    With the explosion of cryptocurrency over the past of years, many have been debating the longevity and legitimacy of cryptocurrencies in our global economy. However, those with a keener eye were fascinated with something far more useful and widely applicable: Blockchain — the technology that made cryptocurrency possible in the first place.
    The rise of Blockchain since then has been nothing short of remarkable, with gigantic companies like Microsoft, Oracle, and IBM investing heavily in the technology. The job market took notice as well, with demand on Toptal – a marketplace for on-demand tech talent- increasing 700% since January 2017.
    In fact, Blockchain-related jobs are now the second-fastest growing in today’s labor market according to TechCrunch. While it’s not news that there is a significant shortage when it comes to programming skills in the global market today, you might be surprised by the numbers that indicate the level of shortage we have in our global labor market. For instance, it’s expected that there would be 1 million programming job openings by 2020, with as many as 83% of CIOs struggling to find tech talent, according to a recent research by TechRepublic.
    Combine that with the exponential growth in demand for blockchain jobs, and it’s no surprise that even those extremely high numbers would continue to rise. To best address this challenge, IIB has taken an approach that adopts a globalized delivery of vocational education and training with agreed-upon levels of requirements among Blockchain experts.
    Irene is Director of the IIB Council, Leading the IIB Council's global initiatives and strategic partnerships. Working with industry leaders and subject matter experts from Fortune 500 companies to develop cutting edge Business-Tech certification courses.

  • Self Sovereign Identity - Going Where No Identity Has Gone Before
    Self Sovereign Identity - Going Where No Identity Has Gone Before
    Ricardo Diaz, Blockchain CLT, Founder Managing Partner, Mike Lodder, Sovrin Foundation Security Maven Recorded: Nov 26 2018 59 mins
    Data privacy is dead. Social login is not the answer. Over thirty years of cyber security internal controls have fallen short of protecting our data. Traditional identity and access management (IAM) systems, aka Web 2.0 IAM, have evolved but only exacerbates the proliferation of centralized identity repositories. Centralized identity repositories that have for decades been the “Crown Jewels” of every malicious hacker or nation state bad actor to be the gateway to our personally identifiable information. A new paradigm shift in the identity management industry is here, Web 3.0 IAM. Blockchain identity management has many names. Decentralized identity. Self-Sovereign Identity. Multi-source identity. All define the same new IAM future. An identity management system powered by distributed ledger technology.
    We will cover the basics of what is Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) and this evolution of the IAM space. The webcast will showcase how one of the SSI leaders in the blockchain identity space, Sovrin, works. Sovrin.org is the leading SSI public identity network solutions in the Blockchain world. It is an open source project managed by the Hyperledger Indy project within the Linux Foundation.

    Talk to blockchain enthusiasts and they will tell you about the potential use cases in their industries and the proofs-of-concept they have run to prove blockchain value.

    However, when the discussion is about production deployments of such use cases and the questions about implementation challenges and production-readiness gaps. Will this change in coming time and will we see a significant shift from experimentation to production deployments of enterprise blockchains?

    Let’s have insightful discussion during our panel discussion with industry experts from blockchain space.
