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.
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.

Startups conducting Token Sales face increasingly stiff competition, especially from Enterprises moving into blockchain who are a way ahead in terms of resources. Which is why ICO/IEO/STO organizers must deploy effective marketing campaigns if they hope to attract token buyers in the fast-changing landscape.
Reuben Thompson, VP of Technology, Gospel Technology,
When it comes to practical applications of Blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT), enterprise use cases go far beyond cryptocurrency, Bitcoin and Fintech. Recently blockchain has gained more and more traction in the data security and identity management space, with companies looking to enhance these features in today’s data-driven economy. Enterprises need to know you are who you say you are; whether you’re an employee, a customer, a partner, supplier, manufacturer or other 3rd party organization. How can companies safely and securely build trust into identity management and authentication, while simultaneously ensuring that employee and 3rd party information is protected? The answer lies in distributed network security and consensus. Join this live webinar with Reuben Thompson, VP of Technology at Gospel Technology, as we discuss these pressing issues and where a distributed network plays a role in authentication and identity.

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.
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.
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’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.

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.
