X Topic Abstract

Enterprise Blockchains has seen multiple proofs-of-concept solutions in the last few years. However, only a handful of them has crossed the chasm over to production-grade implementation. Although many consultancy and advisory firms survey and deliberate the reluctance of businesses adopting Blockchain, there has not been much discussion of the technical barriers to enterprise blockchain adoption. This talk captures some of the highlights of the innovative work we are doing at BOSCH. We take a practitioner's perspective to explore some of the top production challenges in building an Enterprise Blockchain Solutions and discuss some of them. This talk also discusses the role of Economics, Game Theory, and Distributed Systems as the key concepts in building Blockchain Consortiums and driving Blockchain Adoption.

X Topic Abstract

One of major factor behind any business decision making is the cost. Running a blockchain node comes at a cost and not every business can afford to run one to join a blockchain network. This limits the use of enterprise blockchain to a few large organizations, and thus also limits the number of use cases. Corda Accounts comes to the rescue and removes the barrier of entry to the Corda network thus opening up a large set of use cases which were unexplored. Accounts allows the Node operator to split the nodes vault (data store) into multiple logical sub-vaults each linked to a particular account, each having their own key-pair.

Corda Accounts can be used for multiple purpose, example a bank node having customer accounts, hospital node having patient accounts, company node having employee accounts and many more.

This talk will take about why we developed Account and dive into the account feature in Corda as well as explain some of the use case that its suitable for.

Speaker Profile

X Topic Abstract

As the internet evolves, the convergence of the current IoT infrastructure with blockchain and artificial intelligence will have an immense impact. Together Blockchain, AI and IoT can tackle difficult use cases that are inhibiting growth, help us discover new use cases and deliver powerful solutions. The seamless amalgamation of these technologies will power further growth. This talk will focus on real life use cases of these technologies working together to deliver recurring business impact in varied areas like manufacturing, supply chain, agriculture and governance.

X Topic Abstract

The increase in the trend of "sharing economy" business models are going to be largely empowered by trustless peer-to-peer networks and autonomous intelligent machines/devices. Trust, autonomy and real-time decision making would be of utmost importance when various "things" try to collaborate and compete with each other. While blockchain makes distributed consensus and peer-peer economic transactions possible the AI enabled Autonomous Economic agents brings incentivization, monetization, and real-time intelligence to the network. At Bosch, we are working on various use cases across domains such as mobility, automotive, food, supply chain to make use of blockchain and autonomous agents to empower the machine economy. This talk showcases real world use cases of blockchain together with Autonomous Economic agents, its strategic importance and how enterprises can prepare themselves to take this journey successfully. This talk also captures the importance of crypto- economics and governance models enabling fair incentivization for large scale blockchain networks. Truly decentralized blockchain networks strengthen the cooperative behavior among the business and customers and form the basis of the programmable machine economy of the future.

X Topic Abstract

We believe that decentralized computing will mark a transition away from cloud computing and is the next major wave of computing. Crypto Singularity using Blockstack is the new decentralized internet.

With Blockstack, users control their data and apps run on their devices. There are no middlemen, no passwords, no massive data silos to breach, and no services tracking us around the internet.

Data storage is simple and reliable and uses existing cloud infrastructure. Users can connect with their existing AWS S3, or similar cloud storage and the data will then be synced from their local device up to their cloud.

Decentralized apps are a new type of software program designed to exist on the Internet in a way that is not controlled by any single entity. Where bitcoin is a decentralized value exchange, a decentralized application aims to achieve functionality beyond transactions that exchange value.Decentralized apps potentially represent the next generation of computing. In a completely decentralized world all things occur using peer-to-peer networks and the idea of centralized entities are non-existent. This distributed future is still being designed and built but the early stages of development are looking promising. This is a session on Decentralized application that was developed on blockstack, keeping decentralized social networking as a real world use case.

How can Blockchain change the entire landscape of International Trade

The talk will focus on different ways in which Blockchain is changing the day to day operations in International Trade and how data collected in the process can be used to improve / predict /forecast the future of trade.

International trade today is becoming more digital than we could have thought a decade back. Digital Trade enables GVC’s (Global Value Chains) through data flow and smart manufacturing through usage of digital technology like IoT (internet of Things) , Blockchains , 3D printing , Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data Analytics. Use of these digital technologies is enabling the creation of “SMART PORTS” that helps in efficient , transparent and smooth flow of goods and services internationally. The Smart Port also analyzes the data collected through various IoT installations in ports , ships and other locations on the way and thus enhances the overall value of the supply chain.

Blockchains Transactions are time stamped and trace the goods all through. Blockchains are helping to ensure across the board transparency and cannot be easily tampered with . Any changes to a Blockchain can only be made through the permission of multiple entities who form te Blockchain. They are also ensuring that trades become paperless .

The talk will also discuss how areas like Insurance can be automated through smart contracts, and how Fraud can be also prevented using Blockchain.Finally , a 5-8 min snapshot of a real project in international trade using BC.

X Topic Abstract

A blockchain simply records data in chronological order. The difference is the data is never stored centrally but it's distributed across multiple computer networks around the world. And because the data is distributed no one party can ever make any changes so it becomes immutable. This makes it ideal for digital currencies such the famous Bitcoin but it's not all about banking.

The list of uses is growing and diversifying and the potential for retail is huge starting with protecting consumers from fraudulent transactions. It creates a permanent record of a product's journey from supplier to customer so it can prove origin and authenticity while improving visibility on the supply chain. Blockchain offers the possibility of recording all purchase transactions so warrantee is easier to track. For customer loyalty,Blockchain can record loyalty points for awards schemes. Blockchain provides a better customer experience and for retailers it streamlines the exchange of information. For retail, blockchain is likely to be a part of a product's whole life cycle even through to tracking new owners in the case of a resale.Some say blockchain will disrupt retail the same way online shopping did, it may be very bold statement but quite possible
