  • Tokenizing space resources (Blockchain in Space exploration) Nov 10 2020 5:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Surya Saha, Author - "The Digital Choices"/ PhD Scholar - Enterprise Blockchain / Senior Risk Consultant
    Blockchain as a decentralized data system maintains and records data such that multiple stakeholders can confidently share authorized access to vetted information and these has been of significant interest from industry and government to utilize. There has been research and investments in testing the technology to address many issues like security and costing. Government legislators, policy makers and agencies are exploring the merits of the Blockchain for securing supply chains, raising transparency of material provenance, and verification of contractual terms. With this, the technology is gaining increasing importance in the Space industry as well in all the above fields where the combining blockchain and space technology seems like something from science fiction.

    In this talk, I aim to do discuss and bring the option of understanding open-source satellite networks and other space technologies including future missions that can run on blockchain nodes. This would include:

    - Satellite blockchain technology which is designed to bring security to the transmission of digital currencies and smart contracts
    - Space exploration and the use of blockchain in tokenizing space resources
    - Blockchain technology and possible use cases.

  • Embedding Fintech Services to Business Platforms: Maximizing Customer Analytics Nov 5 2020 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jose Angel Arias, COO, Flexewallet
    While Fintech services and platforms become more and more prevalent in our day-to-day life, seems like other relevant business platforms on the digital sphere are watching the newcomers as APIs to be consumed only, not as a relevant component of the product or service lifecycle these incumbent platforms provide for their customer base. However, fintech platforms represent a huge opportunity for these mature digital platforms to gain insight into other opportunities that were not visible when you stop seeing what happens before, during and after a customer pays for the order using a banking or fintech platform:

    Increased sales from customers that, with a much-needed credit line, could be placing a bigger order
    Increased brand fidelity if smaller, more frequent transactions are brought together to recognize repeat business, even if the customer did not claim the transactions
    New revenue streams coming from fees generated by insurance policies, credit card reference or invoice factoring created as part of day-to-day business
    Better value for customers when larger orders can be placed on behalf of a pool of customers that bid together for discounted prices on volume.

    There are only a few examples of the opportunities that established digital and brick-and-mortar players are letting pass for not understanding that the main advantage that fintech companies bring to the table is the ability to see a problem or an opportunity from a clean-slate perspective; as well as the agility to design and implement for specific businesses and models. A revenue-sharing model between fintech and established layers for the benefits of customized, advanced analytics would be the model to think outside of the brick-and-mortar box.
  • DeFi Mania: An Introduction to DeFi Models and Markets Nov 4 2020 10:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Manuel Rensink, Strategy Director, Securrency
    We’re in the midst of the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) revolution. DeFi is smart contract implementation of financial processes like
    lending, collateralization, asset management, etc,. From the first week of August 2020, the total value locked in DeFi jumped by a
    staggering 85%, from $4.2bn on August 3rd to $7.8bn on August 30th, which has created quite a market buzz. This enthusiasm is
    well-founded: blockchain technology has proven that it can streamline and even transform the world of finance in exciting ways, and
    there have certainly been some big winners in this space. But, as dynamic as this community may be, it remains unregulated and
    immature, and that means that there are also some really big losers, with six documented smart-contract hacks having taken place
    in the first 6 months of 2020, for example.

    Working closely with regulators from the US to Singapore and Australia to Kenya, Securrency understands the need for automated
    compliance processes among legacy financial services providers to seamlessly facilitate entrance into the market. Through its
    distributed identity, compliance framework, and state-of-the-art infrastructure, Securrency is providing transparency to strengthen
    investor confidence and offer regulators increased oversight of market activity. Enhancing capital formation and stimulating global
    liquidity, Securrency is opening up a world of possibility.

    In this session, we will discover;

    What is DeFi and what are its innovations?

    What are the main DeFi models and where do their markets lie?

    Where is DeFi going and how big can it get?

    How can we limit DeFi’s use for nefarious activities and protect users/ investors from hacks, scams and technology risk?

    Is there an opportunity for corporations and financial institutions to get involved?

    Martin Rehak, CEO, Resistant AI
    Resistant AI protects high-risk automated decisions taken by machine learning, AI, and statistical models in the fintech and financial sector. We secure the existing credit risk assessment, fraud detection and anti-money laundering systems. Any of these applications offers high reward to any adversary that can manipulate or evade them at scale.

    Motivated adversaries can and do use modern AI techniques or simple cunning to commit fraud by exploiting the vulnerabilities of machine learning methods and inconsistency or insufficiency of the training data. Resistant AI provides:
    * forgery detection (for documents including payslips, statements and other documents),
    * continuous security monitoring to discover manipulation or attacks, and
    * significant reduction of false alarms or rejections.

    Compliance professionals spent 50% of their time on low-value tasks in 2019, according to Thomson Reuters. As these professionals increase the time they spend on high-value tasks, it is worth asking, "what tools make their work even more efficient?"

How can compliance professionals get more out of their work in less time?

  • Blockchain-powered Full Stack Citizen Photo Journalism Recorded: Oct 20 2020 64 mins
    Dr. Shiva Kintali is the Founder & CEO of True Dat
    Everyday thousands of people are bullied, blackmailed, silenced and scammed online using fake photos, fake videos and misinformation. It is getting easier to (i) selectively edit photos, videos and audio, (ii) manipulate metadata of media content and (iii) even generate fully artificial videos (Eg: deepfakes). Fakes are used to spread misinformation and create socio-economic and political chaos. This is leading us towards a post-truth dystopia. Also, sometimes malicious people falsely accuse genuine videos (or photos, audio) as fakes, to promote their self-interests.

    In this talk, I will present an implementation of a Blockchain-powered 'truth machine' (a mobile app) to enable a global borderless decentralized citizen photo journalism. Our technology incentivizes the spread of truth and controls misinformation before it spreads. Our app lets anyone create, share, buy, sell and trade unedited, unfiltered, verifiable and tamper-evident photos and videos. The users may choose to be anonymous, pseudonymous or use their real identities. Our built-in blockchain provides a verifiable certificate to prove that they are not fake or photoshopped or deepfaked.  Our mission is to put a truth machine in everyone's pocket and enable a global borderless citizen photo journalism and true photography.

    Our built-in marketplace provides new economic opportunities for photographers, photo journalists and anyone with an iOS device. Every photo, video and audio created using True Dat app is a unique cryptographically-signed, verifiable and tamper-evident asset. The provenance and the digital rights of these assets are securely tracked and seamlessly transferred using our EulerChain blockchain.
