  • Visualizing a Digital Revolution of the 21st Century Dec 29 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Eric Paul McNeil, Sr., Tableau Architect and Cyber-Security/Blockchain Researcher
    The goal of this brief is to quickly introduce Blockchain 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 blockchain platforms. Nevertheless, a lot of technologists, researchers and professionals understand distributed ledgers are used to process and store user data associated with various types of transactions within blockchains.

    Herein, we will crack open the cyber wallet/vault using a software platform to briefly demo three user dashboard scenarios which will illustrate Blockchain use case value: Asset Auditor; Purchase Tracker; Anomaly Reporter
  • The Invisible Hand (How Algorithms Shape Our Reality) Recorded: Oct 29 2019 29 mins
    Arwen Smit, Author Identity Reboot
    In the age of algorithms, A.I.-driven multinationals and an interconnected, global population, our personal identity is more important than ever. With the rise of the internet, our online and offline worlds started to merge, and what identity is and isn’t has become less defined and more complex. In this timely talk, Arwen Smit explains why identity is the most valuable thing you own, standing at the core of your every online and offline interaction. Driving home that when algorithms shape our reality, we humans become the input and output of algorithms. Arwen Smit is the author of Identity Reboot, available early 2020.

  • Enterprise Blockchain: Practical Applications & Industry Trends Recorded: Sep 19 2019 59 mins
    Robin Smith (Gospel Technology) & Vikram Kimyani (Oracle)
    Since its inception, blockchain has quickly evolved to mean much more than just Bitcoin. More and more enterprises are looking to blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT) for solutions around data security, data privacy, encryption and compliance.

    We are living in an era of hypersensitivity where both employees and consumers are hyper-aware of where, when and how their data is being used. Because of regulations like GDPR, CCPA, HIPAA and others, enterprises need to adopt a proactive instead of reactive approach to data management, security and compliance. Practical applications of blockchain in the enterprise have the ability to push organizations handling large amounts of 3rd party PII and sensitive data into the future, all while remaining safe, secure and compliant.

    Join this live panel discussion with Robin Smith, Presales Consultant at Gospel Technology, as we discuss key use cases and trends for Blockchain in the enterprise.

  • Battling Cyber Threats: How to sleep at night knowing your data is safe Recorded: Sep 18 2019 39 mins
    Lou Senko, Chief Information Officer & SVP, Q2 Holdings, Inc.
    Great financial experiences are built on a foundational confidence and trust that an account holder’s data will be protected. Recent studies show that nearly 70% of account holders expect their financial institution to protect them from fraud and nearly half of executives and small business owners say human error caused a data breach in their organizations. With highly skilled cybercriminals working around the clock leveraging new, sophisticated tactics, consumer data has never been more vulnerable.

    In this webinar, Q2 CIO Lou Senko will explore a real-life example of how blockchain-based advancements in data management and protection can deliver detailed data intelligence and reporting while protecting critical data assets at rest.

  • Blockchain and biometrics: The perfect couple for identity management Recorded: Sep 18 2019 56 mins
    Armin Ebrahimi - CEO and Founder of ShoCard
    A discussion on improving the identity management and sharing protocols of today, which are currently fraught with vulnerabilities that turn them into lucrative honeypots for malicious actors – consider the recent breaches of Equifax, Facebook, etc.

    Ebrahimi will explain how the use of new technologies (blockchain, zero-knowledge cryptography) can be used to lay the foundations for a revolutionary new identity ecosystem, and assess the impact it will have on legacy sectors.

    As fintech rapidly iterates over a traditionally conservative banking industry, it’s important that identity, which is heavily linked to this (consider KYC/AML, signing up for services, etc.), evolves in tandem. It’s now possible to replace inefficient and unsafe practices with vastly more secure offerings that put end user privacy and security at their core.

  • What is tokenization in Blockchain Recorded: Sep 17 2019 63 mins
    Ulf Mattsson, Head of Innovation, TokenEx
    Tokenization on Blockchain is a steady trend of 2018. It seems that everything is being tokenized on Blockchain from paintings, diamonds and company stocks to real estate. Thus, we took an asset, tokenized it and created its digital representation that lives on Blockchain. Blockchain guarantees that the ownership information is immutable.

    Unfortunately, some problems need to be solved before we can successfully tokenize real-world assets on Blockchain. Main problem stems from the fact that so far, no country has a solid regulation for cryptocurrency. For example, what happens if a company that handles tokenization sells the property? They have no legal rights on the property and thus are not protected by the law. Another problem is that this system brings us back some sort of centralization. The whole idea of Blockchain and especially smart contracts is to create a distrustful environment.

    Tokenization is a method that converts a digital value into a digital token. Tokenization can be used as a method that converts rights to an asset into a digital token. The tokenization system can be implemented local to the data that is tokenized or offloaded to cloud. Tokenization in cloud can provide a lower total cost of ownership by sharing resources implementation and administration. A high level of security can be achieved by separating the tokenization system into a container that can be run on-prem or isolated in a remote private cloud.

    This session will discuss tokenization, blockchain and tokenization in blockchain. In this session I will describe what it means to tokenize an asset on Blockchain and how it applies to physical assets.

  • Why Smart Cities Must Embrace Decentralization: The Case for Blockchain Cities Recorded: Sep 17 2019 60 mins
    David Lee Kuo Chuen, Co-Founder, BlockAsset Ventures & LeftCoast ** Boyd Cohen, Co-Founder, IoMob Tech
    The concept of smart cities has evolved greatly in the past decade. One common trend we have noticed is the growing appreciate for active citizen engagement and contribution towards smarter, more efficient and happier cities.

    At the same time there are competing models for the role of technology in society: proprietary, venture capital-backed and frequently extractive (Web 2.0) versus open, co-creative and decentralized (Web 3.0).

    In this webinar, blockchain professors and entrepreneurs, David Lee and Boyd Cohen will explore the myriad of reasons why a blockchain approach to the evolution of cities is the superior choice for improving quality of life, ensuring resilience and for enabling urban innovation.

  • The Blockchain Wave in 2019 and Beyond Recorded: Jun 11 2019 60 mins
    Prof. Ahmed Banafa , College of Engineering at San Jose State University| IoT-Blockchain-AI Expert
    We’re still in the early days of Blockchain as a technology, and so we’re yet to see the full impact that it will have on the world that we live in. Still, it’s already showing potential across a range of industries and started to enter the public consciousness, so the real question is what will happen when Blockchain technology starts to mature.

    Right now, speculating on the future of Blockchain is like trying to predict the future of the World Wide Web in 1990. It’s just too early to say for sure, but we can at least be reasonably certain that it’s going to continue to grow as more and more uses cases are found for the exciting new technology.

    Blockchain will face many changes and obstacles but still provides many promising applications; this webinar discusses both challenges and applications of Blockchain technology in 2019 and beyond.
