Why Smart Cities Must Embrace Decentralization: The Case for Blockchain Cities

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.

  • [Panel] Cognitive Corporate Banking: Open Banking and AI Considerations Oct 30 2018 2:00 pm UTC 60 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 Oct 25 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 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
  • Coding for All: Writing Smart Contracts Using Higher Natural Blockchain Language Oct 23 2018 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Arnoud Berghuis, Founder of the Blockchain Knowledge Foundation (BKS)
    In this talk, you will learn how managers or lawyers & accountants can write and read error free blockchain themselves using a higher natural programming language. Smart contracts are like real contracts, once referred to in the consideration of a real contract, there is a need to understand the smart contract.

    OLE Natural blockchain language enables managers to produce error free executable blockchain code faster. The compiler does the work, generates executable Solidity for Ethereum or Quorum blockchains. More important than speed is that OLE makes that lawyers or managers can understand (R/W/Validate) blockchains and that code is error free. Blockchain is write only, hence errors cannot be removed!

    OLE comes with a simple 2 STEP methodology to grantee ERROR FREE code: First, the OLE natural language input texts can be validated for correctness by domain experts. Second, compiler does the work and compiles to executable blockchain. The authors highlight further the need for a semantic blockchain.

  • Getting Prepared for Blockchain Recorded: Oct 16 2018 52 mins
    Aman Sanduja, Founder, TowardsBlockchain
    Blockchain is a new technology and despite an increasing interest in the technology and its
    applications, its specifics remain largely unknown to most of the world.

    The demand for Blockchain Engineers has grown 700% from January 2017 to January 2018. Blockchain is disrupting the Banking, Finance, Health, Legal, and several other industries. Almost every leading organisation or fast-growth startup is adopting this technology. However, deep expertise and world-class talent in Blockchain is extremely hard to find. The need of the hour is creating this sought-after talent pool which will contribute to growth in these sectors.

    Join this session to better understand this technology and consider its
    applications in your field of work.

  • Enabling Businesses to Speak the Same Language with the Blockchain Recorded: Oct 4 2018 47 mins
    Tomaž Levak, Co-Founder & CEO and Žiga Drev, Co-Founder & COO, OriginTrail
    Global supply chains are sophisticated networks, but the lack of transparency leads to an increasing number of inefficiencies and threats - including food safety, counterfeit, and business costs (for example, 10% of all freight invoices contain inaccurate data). Blockchain technology provides a neutral layer with a huge potential to break down data silos and foster data exchange. It also provides the incentive for stakeholders to share more data.

    Co-founders of OriginTrail will present how blockchain-based data exchange protocol makes it possible to extract new value out of data that is already collected along the supply chain. Through reviewing actual use cases, you will learn how various applications can be built once the data is extracted from the legacy system and shared. Either consumer-facing apps for product visibility or business applications for more efficient supply chain management can be built on top of the blockchain.

  • Changing Finance: Game-Changing Applications of the Blockchain Recorded: Sep 20 2018 49 mins
    Alessandra Sollberger, Founder, Evermore
    We’ve all heard hundreds of blockchain pitches and use cases, yet there seems to be little to show for it. Why is that so? There are many reasons, including the industry’s infancy, the lack of standards and scalability and the obsession with “retrofitting” applications that can be delivered with non-blockchain tech too. That’s because we’re moving to a new paradigm. It’s difficult to imagine brand new use cases. Yet, some industries won’t be the same anymore and that’s already happening. In this seminar, we’ll go through them and explain why the changes will be so profound.
  • Blockchain and Self-Sovereignty in the Age of Consent Recorded: Sep 20 2018 59 mins
    Akasha Indream, Leah Callon-Butler; Susanne Tarkowski, Violet Lim (Lunch Actually), Phil Lane Jr. (First Nations Solar)
    As block chain is a distributed trust network, how will society evolve as centralised authorities diminish? And what does this mean for the activities of consenting adults, whose trusted relationships have been legitimised and sanctioned by central authorities? Why dating, sex, and marriage on the blockchain - how does an immutable ledger add benefit here? The new economic democracy isn't just public - it's about the private activities of our love lives and bedrooms, too. Blockchain comes out of the closet and makes a bold statement for an evolving future dynamic of liberation, diversity, consent and inclusion.
