This time innogy Innovation Hub @SpaceShack is our host. We plan to open doors at 6:45 PM. There will be free beer & pizza beforehand.
Talk 1: Token Design as Optimization Design, with Case Studies from Bitcoin & Ocean Protocol
Speaker: Trent McConaghy
Abstract: The core feature of tokenized ecosystems, aka public blockchains, is getting people to do stuff. In this talk, I give more structure to this idea using a framing from optimization literature, and more precisely, evolutionary algorithms (EAs). I give examples of this approach using Bitcoin and Ocean Protocol as examples. Length: 30 min.
Bio: Trent did AI & optimization research for two decades, including AI to help drive Moore’s Law. For the last several years he’s worked on blockchain, focusing on democratizing data via Ocean decentralized data economy for AI, BigchainDB decentralized database, and advising the Estonia E-residency program. http://www.trent.st
Talk 2: Spherity – A Digital Twin Protocol for the 4th Industrial Revolution
Speaker: Carsten Stöcker
Abstract: Spherity is a scalable decentralized platform for the 4th industrial revolution providing secure identities and digital twins bridging the physical, biological and digital spheres. We are now starting to develop a general purpose Digital Me and Digital Twin protocol by combining Consensus Algorithms, BigchainDB Crypto and Modern Cryptography. This technology will turn today’s transaction systems upside down. Join us to learn about the protocol and its disruptive use cases. Length: 20 min.
Bio: Dr. Carsten Stöcker is founder of Spherity GmbH. He is a physicist by training with a Ph.D. from the University of Aachen. He also serves as a Council Member of Global Future Network for the World Economic Forum. Prior to founding Spherity GmbH, Dr. Stöcker worked for innogy SE, German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt, DLR) and Accenture GmbH.
Talk 3: Carefully Growing a small Decentral Data Platform Seed – Public BigchainDB Network
Abstract: Spherity and further innovative start-ups are applying ecosystem leadership to evaluate and start a new Public BigchainDB network. Our objective is to kick-off a the first scalable public blockchain Database. Learn about our vision and how we manoeuvre legal and technology limitations to get going. Length: 10 min.
