Blockchain for Enterprise – Day 1

Blockchain technology is starting to encourage a direct value exchange over the internet. It is slowly moving towards mainstream adoption, and removing the friction in the exchange of value over the internet. It is fast approaching an inflection point where enterprise and greater mainstream adoption will ensue. As a result of the considerable structural advantages blockchain technology is expected to have significant impact on industries including payments, finance, insurance, energy, IoT, exchanges, music and many more. This track analyses just these impacts looking at various industries and the challenges and opportunities that blockchain will present to them.

We’ve entered a new era where truth isn’t subjective, but collective — where radical transparency is uprooting how we interact, transact and drive growth. Leading organizations and consortia across industries are rapidly unleashing the exponential business value of blockchain technologies.

More than a new technology, it’s a whole new playing field.

In this presentation you will hear how IBM is working with hundreds of organizations across financial services, supply chains, IoT, risk management, digital rights management and healthcare to implement blockchain applications.

Learn how these blockchain trailblazers have partnered to design, develop and rapidly adopt digital ledgers, digital identity, trust and transparency with Blockchain to
eliminate inefficiencies and streamline the exchange of value across their ecosystems.

View Full Info

If AI is the new electricity, then blockchain has the potential to become the new Betamax: a superior technology, but can be obsolete due to lack of mass adoption. We are at a critical crossroad in the journey of blockchain today. While many praise blockchain for its enormous potential, it is still a widely misunderstood technology, and one that if not adopted universally, could fall flat. In this keynote by Indu Kodukula, VP of Blockchain Technologies at Intuit, he outlines the critical growing pains we must address to unleash the technological trajectory of blockchain, or risk the technology becoming another outdated buzzword.

View Self-Assembly and Semantic Blockchain: From Digital Rights Management to Knowledge Discovery

View Full Info

Blockchain technology was conceived as a decentralized, immutable and time-evolving public ledger, through which a range of transactions could be redundantly recorded. To date, most of these transactions have been financial in nature, for example supporting the detection of attempted double spends of cryptocurrency and, more generally, enabling smart contracts where assets are allocated based on the validation of specific contract conditions. However, beyond these applications, the fundamental properties of Blockchain can also drive disruptive, high-value opportunities for digital rights management and knowledge discovery.

Knowledge curation has historically been carried out through imposed standardization of document meta-data, often arranged in centralized libraries enforcing rigid and universal classification systems. Fusing blockchain with semantic mapping technology, it is now possible to drive the formation of time-evolving, self-assembling sets of query-able documents, with no requirement for imposed classification systems or adherence to specific categorization schemas. Rather, shared meaning between the text of documents can be automatically measured by detecting similar patterns of shared rare words (semantic signatures).  Representing core meaning, the semantic signature of a document is formed both from the static, publication date-fixed content of the rare words in that document compared to the time-dependent evolving context of related content.

Within the block payload, the semantic signature of a document serves as a dynamically evolving “connective glue” catalyzing the self-assembly of a document set.  An evolving semantic signature is analogous to a transaction on a ledger: The presence of the semantic signature in the payload of a block enables (i) an immutable ledger of changing semantic values for a document over time, (ii) the comparison of potentially changing ledger values (Author, Title, Publisher, Publication Date, Current Semantic Signature) to support digital rights management, and (iii) rapid and systematic access to relevant content that is otherwise hidden within massive archives of rigidly over-categorized content.

Blockchain is the fastest growing technology today and for years to come. More and more applications are moving toward adopting this new technology. However, there are lots of complexity in moving from a centralized to decentralized world, so there are growing pains to adopt the new technology and make it work with existing infrastructure as well as applications.

We’ll also discuss on how to mitigate the pains and keep transparency so that blockchain can be trained to adapt to existing as well as new applications.
