It’s more than Blockchain

Blockchain is relevant for many use cases in different industries. However, it’s not magic. You need to know where and how to use it, and what else to do to get material business results. It turns out that blockchain is conceptually just a playground in a larger Software Theme Park of interoperable software.

This talk will help to demystify some things and shed light on some other things possibly lost in the hype. The content is based on lessons learned conceiving and implementing blockchain at large scale for public health and later expanded for other health and life sciences use cases. What actually works at scale, what doesn’t and where to start.

Humanizing the Blockchain: Why We Must Put the User Experience First

In 2018, blockchain’s very best user interfaces  still fall far short of being a cohesive experience that puts users back in control of their digital lives. If we want the decentralized Internet to achieve mass adoption, we need to put user experience first. The challenges: How can we design dApps to be as intuitive and powerful as the apps offered by today’s centralized digital superpowers, while preserving the most important benefits of decentralization? What are the conceptual hurdles in users’ minds that we need to overcome? And instead of recreating the kinds of app ecosystems we already know, could we create something even better? Cardstack founding director Chris Tse provides an emphatic yes — and explains his approach.

Decentralized Cyber Security – enhancing the quality and assurance of data protected by blockchains

Blockchain alone isn’t enough to provide true cybersecurity — but add it to trusted computing, and you’ve got a powerful combination that keeps an immutable record of what you’re doing while ensuring that it’s what you wanted to do. Our entire security system is centralized — that’s why Equifax and other high-profile hacking targets have been so attractive. Blockchain decentralizes that, making it more difficult to get them. But if that’s all we use, we’re negating all the other security controls we’ve developed over the past decades. There’s a need for something that makes use of both
This discussion will focus on the need for Decentralized Cyber security in partnership with blockchain. Demonstrate the benefit of provable cyber security controls assuring the data on a chain was intended and focus on the use of imbedded security to increase the quality and value of information on blockchain, IoT, Cloud services.
