  • How to make blockchain work with GDPR and other regulatory compliance requirements ACCESS PLUS Sreenivas Bandi  |   LedgerBlocks  |   Access Plus: Blockchain

    Access Plus: Blockchain Theatre

    Wed 3rd Oct 11:00 to 11:30

    How to make blockchain work with GDPR and other regulatory compliance requirements

    Blockchain and GDPR both involve the decentralization of data. Implementing blockchain moves data to decentralized nodes, each owned by an independent party, while GDPR decentralizes the control of data, giving individual people control over how their data is used and monetized. But there is a conflict between the two: Blockchain data is immutable by design, while GDPR mandates that people have the right to be forgotten in certain circumstances. So how do you implement blockchain and other DLT solutions when the data to be stored falls under GDPR? Join Sreeni in an exploration of this issue. This session will discuss the current state of this active debate; it will share some of the most actively supported design ideas, and discuss in detail the current thinking of Lloyd’s, the London Market, and various regulators.

  • The energy consumption of digital infrastructures ACCESS PLUS Dr Umaima Haider  |   Enterprise Computing Research Lab, University of East London  |   Access Plus: Blockchain

    Access Plus: Blockchain Theatre

    Wed 3rd Oct 13:40 to 14:10

    The energy consumption of digital infrastructures

    Many technologies are evolving to solve internet scale problems such as decentralisation. Blockchain is one such technology with various applications in cryptocurrencies, Ledgers, etc. However, little attention is being paid to the environmental impact of such technologies. This talk will highlight the impact of such technologies on the overall energy consumption of ICT worldwide, and will discuss some of the opportunities.

    How to decide if the blockchain is the right strategy for your business?

    From 2017 cryptocurrencies and the blockchain technology that powers them exploded onto every executive’s radar. But above and beyond this hype, this session will explore how the underlying blockchain technology offers amazing new paradigms on how we work and transact with one another, making commerce cheaper, timely, frictionless and independent of linchpin intermediaries (like banks). This session will examine what the blockchain is from a commercial point of view, practical uses of it, as well as provide top tips for you to assess if the blockchain is right for your business in 2019 and beyond.

  • The Internet of Things: Web 3.0 ACCESS PLUS Dai Davis  |   Percy Crow Davis & Co  |   Access Plus: Blockchain

    Access Plus: Blockchain Theatre

    Wed 3rd Oct 15:00 to 15:30

    The Internet of Things: Web 3.0

    An ultra-cheap means of knowing about objects has the potential of revolutionising businesses in much the same way as the original internet has allowed us to know everything about individuals.  This talk explores what every IT professional needs to know – and the reality is far beyond the “trivial” examples such as the Samsung connected fridge, the Google car or tracking pallets in warehouses.  Soon almost all everyday objects will be capable of being connected.  Soon individual’s clothing, luggage, handbags, wallets and other accoutrements will be “connected”. 

    Dai will use his legal expertise and IT security skills to suggest strategies of keeping one step ahead of your competitors.

  • Blockchain - what is it actually good for? Exploring real world roadblocks and use cases ACCESS PLUS Helen Disney   |   Unblocked  |   Access Plus: Blockchain

    Access Plus: Blockchain Theatre

    Thu 4th Oct 11:40 to 12:10

    Blockchain - what is it actually good for? Exploring real world roadblocks and use cases

    Blockchain is the buzz word of the moment. Everyone wants to talk about it. Few understand what it can really do or where it can be applied successfully. This session will examine 4 real world use cases of blockchain and ask what are the technical, business and political stumbling blocks that still need to be addressed to ensure wider implementation.

  • Do I own my land? Myths and opportunities for blockchain in land administration ACCESS PLUS Dave Stow  |   Ordnance Survey  |   Access Plus: Blockchain

    Access Plus: Blockchain Theatre

    Thu 4th Oct 12:20 to 12:50

    Do I own my land? Myths and opportunities for blockchain in land administration

    Understanding the ownership of land and property is fundamental to a nation’s economy. However in many parts of the world, ownership is unclear and the processes of registration and conveyance are slow and suffer desperately from corruption. Blockchain has been vaunted as the magic bullet to these problems, but is it? What are the realities, challenges and opportunities of administering land using blockchain? How should we go about moving to using blockchain in a way that adds value?

    Thu 4th Oct 13:40 to 14:10

    Blockchain Bulls**t

    Blockchain does not just mean cryptocurrency. In fact, in this presentation, we’re not interested in crypto at all.
    Armed with some really awesome case studies (and some pretty poor ones), Tazz Gault, Co-Founder of State Zero – the world’s first dedicated Blockchain Lab for startups – will hopefully help bust a myth or two from this space.
    Join to discover whether the latest buzzword, blockchain, is relevant for your business, as we call bullsh*t on much of the current views.

  • Developing Blockchain Workforce ACCESS PLUS Irene Dima  |   EC-Council  |   Access Plus: Blockchain

    Access Plus: Blockchain Theatre

    Thu 4th Oct 14:20 to 14:50

    Developing Blockchain Workforce

    While organizations are now exploring the in-depth the potential of Blockchain Technology, they also face several challenges in adopting and scaling blockchain-powered solutions across different operations. Many of these technologies have been tested in specific use cases only and considered unready for large-scale commercial implementation. In addition to that, questions now arise that the so-called unhackable blockchain technology could be threatened by the emergence of quantum computers. To address regulatory and reputational risk as well issues of  unfamiliarity, lack of knowledge, and lack of experience, organizations need to develop and retain internal blockchain talent.

  • How behavioural science is being successfully employed to encourage sustainable behaviour ACCESS PLUS Yolanda Berry  |   UK Behavioural Economics  |   Access Plus: Blockchain

    Access Plus: Blockchain Theatre

    Thu 4th Oct 15:00 to 15:30

    How behavioural science is being successfully employed to encourage sustainable behaviour

    Every day, we are faced with thousands of decisions. Some of them are trivial, like what to wear or eat, while others are critical, like which medical treatment to undergo or which job to take. But all of them contributed to our overall cognitive load, and the resulting decision fatigue is one of the things that makes it so hard for people to adopt sustainable behaviour. In this talk, Yolanda will explain what we currently understand about how humans make decisions, and how we are applying that understanding to help reduce our impact on the environment. The session will include case studies from the UK and abroad, as well as some guidelines on how people use these same techniques in their own work.
