The design of the internet came with a fundamental flaw. A flaw that hunts it to this day. The internet was never built with an identity layer. A great part of the chaos we find ourselves in today is related to a multitude of players with wide-ranging agendas trying to fill this gap. This gap led us to a strange place to be. There is no unified you, online or offline. Arwen Smit is the author of Identity Reboot, available November 2019. Find out more at www.arwensmit.com.
In the age of algorithms, A.I.-driven multinationals and an interconnected, global population, our personal identity is more important than ever. One of the symptoms of our data-driven society is the centralisation of A.I. The hoarding of data by the tech giants and the centralisation of A.I. go hand-in-hand, with far-reaching consequences. This talk challenges that notion: Maybe the future of AI shouldn't be centralised. Arwen Smit is the author of Identity Reboot, available November 2019. Find out more at www.arwensmit.com.

Trust in Math, Not Humans : Privacy Technology In Crypto
The blockchain revolution of the past 10 years has seen the biggest surge in open source projects with 90K+ Github repositories dedicated to blockchain (DLT) projects. This massive paradigm shift to decentralized computing has also advanced the field of cryptography with exciting new math that will deliver on the promise of privacy like never before.
With over 20 years enterprise software and cyber security expertise, Ricardo Diaz, today is the founder of Blockchain CLT, a blockchain consultancy. He will discuss the future and evolution of trust with innovative privacy technologies powering blockchain projects today and in the future.
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 November 2019.

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
We will discuss our views on homomorphic encryption for voice, and blockchain and "Blockchain zero knowledge proofs." We will cover use cases for Homomorphic encryption (HE) that is applicable in secure voice conferencing for untrusted environments such as cloud applications. The thinking is that not having a central decryption point, cyber based cached attacks such as TLBleed would not be able to have any effect. This can secure voice in tactical environments. We define tactical as any environment that has limited computing resources, rapidly changing mission requirements, limited connectivity, and high stress. Such environments are typically tactical military deployments, public safety, or government field offices.

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.
We will discuss Smart agreements on Blockchain and how to create Blockchain powered Smart agreements. It is time for intelligent and self-aware contracts. Create, execute and maintain legal contracts that can be highly customized and automated with a platform powered by Blockchain, Internet-of-Things and Artificial Intelligence. This can ensure secure authentication, minimize fraud and provide complete control of your identity and ensure your privacy.

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.
In this session Antony Lewis, Director of Digital Assets at R3, describes how the crypto community and traditional finance communities are finally appreciating each others strengths and are coming together to create new ways of issuing and managing assets as tokens on blockchains.
How are tokens different to account balances? What benefits do they offer? And how will this impact the industry? Join this session to find out more.

Innovation has quickly become an overused and distorted word. At Money20/20 Europe expect to cut through the hype, explore what measurements we can use to benchmark innovation and get to the heart of sustainable and commercial step change. A key question which has moved back up the C-Level agenda of established; banks, tech companies and payments companies is:
"How can incumbents deliver meaningful game-changing innovation?"
There are three options available for incumbents, and at Money20/20 Europe we’ll be developing deeper into each one:
1. Can organisations transform their cultures to execute true innovation internally within their organisations? (cultural transformation)
2. Perhaps tech transformation is the way forward, partnering or acquisitions to do so?
3. Or do they need to achieve business model transformation by building something entirely new outside of the organisation?
These options are being heavily debated in boardrooms throughout Europe, with a number of high profile banks recently announcing plans to build brand new subsidiaries. Some of the traditional banks, payments and tech companies are pursuing a few or all of the options while others are sitting on the fence. Which is most effective and why? What are the dynamics at play that determine success for different types of companies? Hear from the leading companies in our industry as they share their incisive insight on the successes but also the failures and the lessons learned.
