  • Powering business operations with blockchain Jan 30 2019 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Irene Dima, Director IIB Council
    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.
  • How will regulations impact cloud and blockchain in 2019? Jan 23 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    This expert panel include Ulf Mattsson, RICARDO G. DIAZ, the founder and CEO of BCLT and chief identity architects
    Breached businesses in Europe: Brace for more class action lawsuits. GDPR Compliance in a Data-Driven World. Insights from a 2018 Survey. Learn More. There have been countless breaches before — Facebook has even dealt with specific login bugs like this one — but the GDPR changes everything. If the company is found to have violated the rule, it could be liable for up to four percent of annual revenue, a staggering $4 billion. Under the GDPR, the question of blame largely hinges on whether the company was negligent, ignoring basic practices that could have prevented the breach. Both Facebook and Google have already come under fire for having Terms of Service that violate the regulation. Facebook is preparing for what could be the fight of its life. No one has ever litigated these issues before, and we only have a hazy sense of what a strong or weak GDPR case looks like. We’re just months into the GDPR regime, and there’s simply no roadmap for how it can be used.
    This expert panel will discuss how How will GDPR impact Blockchain in 2019.

  • Visualizing a Digital Revolution of the 21st Century Dec 5 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Eric Paul McNeil, Sr., Tableau Architect and Cyber-Security/Block-Chain Researcher
    The goal of this brief is to quickly introduce Block-Chain analytic dashboard usages. It could be said that the average person has no idea what Crypto-Currency is nor, can they explain how the technology works. Some would agree more people are now beginning to comprehend crypto-currencies like Bitcoin are simply some type of electronic investment instrument as in the American dollar. However, most individuals in the general population still don’t grasp the potential value of Block-Chain platforms. Nevertheless, a lot of technologist, researchers and professionals understand distributed ledgers are used to process and store user data associated with various types of transactions within Block-Chains. Herein, we will crack open the cyber wallet/vault using a software platform to briefly demo three user dashboard scenarios which will illustrate Block-Chain use case value: Asset Auditor; Purchase Tracker; Anomaly Reporte

    The NHS is a much-loved institution but the system is on its knees and facing an entrenched range of problems from confidential data going missing to blocked beds, from dangerously long waits in A&E to lack of timely access to information and unempowered patients. Could blockchain technology help cut costs, reduce the administrative burden, securely track test results, and safely share data to empower patients and the medical profession? And from the perspective of enterprise and investors, where is the real return on investment in healthcare reform in both the short and longer term?

  • [Panel] Cognitive Corporate Banking: Open Banking and AI Considerations Recorded: Oct 30 2018 19 mins
    Anton Ruddenklau - KPMG, Patty Hines - Celent, Thomas Nielsen - Deutsche Bank and Tim Tyler - Finastra
    The notion of a 'cognitive' corporate bank would have been a giant leap a decade ago. Today, the use of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and predictive analytics is accelerating in corporate banking.

    * What does a cognitive corporate bank look like?
    * How can open banking APIs support the application of AI at the optimal points in the client lifecycle and enable bankers to focus less on admin and more on value-added services?
    * To what extent does the cognitive bank need to be 'open' and how can this shift help banks move from selling commoditized products, to service promises?

    This panel will explore how AI and open banking can work together to improve customer journeys, reduce inefficiencies and risk, and drive revenue growth - and what banks have to do to get there.

  • Improving Medical Device Safety & Quality Using Blockchain Recorded: Oct 25 2018 64 mins
    David Houlding, Principal Healthcare Lead - Microsoft and Susan Ramonat, Chief Executive - Spiritus
    Spiritus and the British Blockchain Association investigate the practical application of blockchain using medical devices as a user case.

    Find out how medical device tracking using blockchain offers compelling value to healthcare, in supporting fast recalls, and improving the quality and safety of medical devices.

    Modern healthcare critically depends on medical devices. Whether in the patient in the form of implantables, on the patient in the form of wearables, or around the patient monitoring their environment, medical devices are already pervasive, and rapidly growing.

    Artificial intelligence and machine learning provide powerful new tools for real-time analysis of data from this Internet of Medical Things to empower healthcare professionals with new insights regarding patient health, and opportunities to improve patient care. However, for medical devices and analytics to deliver full benefits, the quality and safety of these devices is paramount.

    Faulty devices can not only lead to suboptimal results, but can directly compromise patient safety. Expediting recalls and tracking the health and maintenance of medical devices not only through the supply chain, but also through multiple lifecycles of use across different organisations, can greatly improve the quality and safety of medical devices and patient care.

    Join us in this webinar to hear how blockchain provides a powerful new tool to track medical devices, expedite recalls, and improve quality.

    Key take-aways:
    •Medical devices in, on, and around patients, and the critical importance of safety and quality
    •Blockchain as a tool to track and trace medical devices to expedite recalls and improve quality
    •Key challenges and solutions for using blockchain to improve medical device quality and safety
    •Evolution of blockchain for medical devices: status, next steps, and future projections
