    David Parker (Polymath), Jonathan Wood (Vocalink), Miles Jack (TSYS), Suresh Vaghijani
    · Pay by bank from Vocalink, Pingit from Barclays; Accenture has forecast a 30% drop in card volume based on open banking and PSD2, will these new solutions really eat into Debit and what is happening around regulation on them
    · IoT payments are much hyped, can the schemes deliver on tokenization solutions for all devices or only with big brands
    · Will we all be wearing our payments in five years, or just have it embedded in our finger
    · Are we seeing the re-birth of the QR code with Tesco and the schemes in emerging markets or is it just a flash in the pan
    · Can Fintechs really take advantage of the emerging payment trends or is it a market for the big boys only
    · Clearbank the first new settlement bank in the UK, does this actually indicate a new trend of big banks being wholesalers and small Fintechs being retailers

  • Blockchains and New Educational Models Recorded: Oct 12 2017 53 mins
    Prof.John Domingue Director, Knowledge Media Institute, The Open University
    Since its inception the Open University has used the latest technology to bring Higher Education to everyone who wishes to study. During development its initial name was ‘the University of the Air’ due to the prevalence of radio at the time.

    Following our innovation thread we have over the past year or so been conducting a number of experiments in deploying blockchains in OU courses.

    In this talk I will cover how we have been using blockchains to manage micro-accreditation (including badging), ePortfolios and peer accreditation in a variety of settings. I will also outline our initiatives to setup national and international blockchain networks and how blockchains could herald the emergence of Uber-style universities.
  • How Smart Contracts & Blockchain can co-exist with current legal concepts Recorded: Oct 11 2017 63 mins
    Lee Bacon, Nigel Brooke (Clyde & Co), Kevin Hobbs (Etherparty), Jimmy Nguyen (nChain(
    The title smart contracts is used to refer to a number of arrangements in which relationships are governed by a pre-determined digitalised arrangement, so that coded instructions execute on the occurrence of an event.

    These often use Blockchain or distributed ledger technology to record and execute transactions. In their purest sense, the code – once agreed – becomes self-executing and self-governing and thus (it is argued) replaces the need for a wider contract or checks and balances.

    Whilst their common name is arguably a misnomer (they are not necessarily contracts in the traditional legal sense), their implementation can enable transparency in supply chains and the reduction of frictional and intermediary costs.

    This panel will examine how the concepts of smart contracts, utilising blockchain technology, can co-exist with existing legal concepts to include a review of:

    · The distinction between traditional legal prose/code and programming code.

    · Application of traditional principles (to include the three f-words: frustration, fraud and force majeure)

    · The allocation of responsibility and liability.

    · Practical steps and perspectives on the future.
  • Is code the new law? Regulation, Legality and Smart Contracts Recorded: Oct 11 2017 61 mins
    Ravikant Agrawal (Cognizant), Laurence Kirk (Extropy), Arnab Naskar (Innovationsforum), Jonathan Galea (Bitmalta)
    Regulation has been considered an obstacle when it comes to the adoption of blockchain technology. But many have taken on the challenge and have actively started to take blockchain and DLT as both a challenge and an opportunity.

    Join this panel where we will discuss:

    -ICOs, Self regulation of ICO, status of tokens in an ICO
    -How blockchain will affect existing market regulations
    -Which new regulations can we expect to respond to the ecosystem that blockchain has created?
    -How would the governance structure be determined?
    -How can the obstacle of a cross-border environment be tackled?
  • Mattereum - Pragmatic Smart Ledgers Without The Lawyers Recorded: Oct 11 2017 52 mins
    Professor Michael Mainelli, Co-founder of Z/Yen
    Much has been written about the power and scope of Smart Ledgers and Mutual Distributed Ledgers (MDLs, aka blockchains). Amidst the rush to find new applications for this versatile, ‘trustless’ technology, people overlook the challenge of governing Smart Ledger networks. Governance provides the mechanisms required to balance accountability of the governing body and its duty of meeting the specific objectives of the organisation.

    Effective governance of Smart Ledgers should answer four critical questions - How are rules created for the ledger and who oversees their application? What happens in the case of dispute? Who is allowed to change the software application and the data? How are security, risk and performance managed and reported?

    One approach is to embed these questions in existing legal structures, another to try to remain outside, but a third is to explore the appropriate role of arbitration, mediation, and expert determination, as far as possible avoiding enmeshing novel identity, document, and agreement exchanges within traditional legal structures.

    In this webinar, Professor Michael Mainelli will share research from the Mattereum initiative as well as Long Finance research sponsored by the Cardano Foundation. He will conclude that, while there is nothing new under the sun, Smart Ledgers may need to shift the balance of power from law, to code, to human wisdom.

    JS Gourevitch, Alexa Fernandez (BBVA), Arthur Leung (Curve), Laurence Leyden (SAP), Edward George (Ecobank)
    Digital transformation is increasingly becoming a major strategic issue for banks. They increasingly understand that digital is not just another distribution channel but a major change in their business models, functioning, cultures themselves with major impacts and demanding change programs across the whole business and value chains.

    We will assess how these transformations are taking place, how do they impact the financial services sector, how the implementation of technologies such as blockchain are accelerating the transformation, where are the convergence and in particular how best startups and incumbents can work together.

    Among others, they will discuss:

    -Can the banks switch to making money from enabling customers’ healthy financial behaviour, rather than from continuing to exploit ongoing financial self-harm?

  • The Bitcoin Fork: What you need to know (Live Q&A) Recorded: Aug 16 2017 64 mins
    Ina Yulo (BrightTALK), Dr. Craig Wright (nChain), David Siegel (20|30). Jameson Lopp (BitGo)

    They will also take audience questions live so make sure to tune in and have your questions ready.

  • Data Analytics in Financial Services: Identifying obstacles and key issues Recorded: Jul 20 2017 61 mins
    Alex Kwiatkowski (Finastra), Peter Jackson (Southern Water), Jessica Holzbach (Penta)
    In an increasingly digitalised world, the value of information grows ever higher. Winning organisations – whether in financial services or any other vertical sector – will be those who can harness the power of data analytics to develop microscopic levels of insight and foresight into customer behaviours and operational activities in order to make progressive improvements on a continuous basis. Product development informed by factual evidence rather than educated guesswork, or real-time risk management based on a hyper-accurate picture of exposures, bring significant internal and external benefits.

    However, while banks want to get closer to their customers, is the feeling mutual? Data privacy is a very sensitive issue, and the perception of what constitutes intrusion will likely vary between individuals. Institutions, therefore, need to walk a fine line between what’s genuinely useful and what’s genuinely creepy.

    During this webinar, a panel of respected subject matter experts will discuss and dissect the key issues related to the widespread use of data analytics in financial services, identifying the obstacles which need to be overcome and the enablers that will drive FS forward successfully.
  • Optimisation & Security: Personal Data's Impact on Retail and Financial Services Recorded: Jul 20 2017 61 mins

    Financial Services companies rely on personal data for both their retail and business customers. Legislation and regulation, such as AMLD4, PSD2 and GDPR; both control and mandate its use.

    How can FS companies manage and use the data effectively? Join this panel where we'll discuss the many new regulations coming up and what you should be doing as early as now to prepare your organisation and optimise your processes.
