An NGI Move Salon: Informal Seminar on blockchain and public agency

November 22, 2017 @ 14:00 - 17:00

An NGI Brussels: on blockchain and public agency

On blockchain and public agency.

Decentralized data governance: leveraging on distributed open hardware and software ecosystems based on blockchains, distributed ledger technology, open data and peer-to-peer technologies. Attention should be paid to ethical, legal and privacy issues, as well as to the concepts of autonomy, data sovereignty and ownership, values and regulations.

In Smart Decentralisation: Moving From The Cloud To The Fog, Dominik Schiener, Co-Founder — IOTA Foundation, asks what the evolutionary transition towards smart decentralization means for both the internet of things and our society?: “With the introduction of blockchain, the internet of things will actually move away from the cloud and towards the fog – something that in turn could give rise to a fully autonomous machine economy, one that no longer needs the intervention of human managers.” DECODE provides tools that put individuals in control of whether they keep their personal data private or share it for the public good. IDEO, Microsoft, IOTA support DIF in building an open source decentralized identity ecosystem for people, organizations, apps, and devices. The goal of the World Identity Network (WIN) is to catalyze progress towards universal ID and robust, secure, digital identification systems using 21st century technology solutions, such as the distributed ledger technology (DLT). uPort is an open source software project to establish a global, unified, sovereign identity system for people, businesses, organizations, devices, and bots. Accenture and Microsoft are creating a blockchain solution to support ID2020, a global public-private partnership dedicated to solving the challenges of identity faced by more than 1.1 billion people around the world.  What will this competition on the passport lead to? What kind of societies are being built by whom?

NEXT GENERATION INTERNET FUNDING

For the ICT-24 call closing in 2018, ‘Research & Innovation Actions’ in the following three sub-topics will be called for. Proposals should address only one of these sub-topics. Specifically, the call is designed for 20/80% funding scheme, where 80% is reserved for sub-granting.

Privacy and trust enhancing technologies: as sensors, objects, devices, AI-based algorithms, etc., are incorporated in our digital environment, develop robust and easy to use technologies to help users increase trust and achieve greater control when sharing their personal data, attributes and information.

Decentralized data governance: leveraging on distributed open hardware and software ecosystems based on blockchains, distributed ledger technology, open data and peer-to-peer technologies. Attention should be paid to ethical, legal and privacy issues, as well as to the concepts of autonomy, data sovereignty and ownership, values and regulations.

Discovery and identification technologies: to search and access large heterogeneous data sources, services, objects and sensors, devices, multi-media content, etc. and which may include aspects of numbering; providing contextual querying, personalized information retrieval and increased quality of experience.
