Blockchain Conference 2017: Decentralising data
“Any new technology creates challenges, but with the right mix of leadership, collaboration and sound governance, distributed ledgers could yield significant benefits for the UK.” – Sir Mark Walport, Government Chief Scientific Adviser
With potential applications ranging from fraud prevention to processing passport applications, some experts believe blockchain could be a disruptive technology to rival the internet and the printing press. Through the use of distributed digital legers, blockchain would allow the public sector to greatly improve the way it protects and shares sensitive data. The 2016 Government report “Beyond Blockchain” states that the UK’s digital infrastructure and strong research community means the country is in a “unique position to explore” blockchain and “maximise the benefits to our public services and our economy”. By embracing blockchain and becoming early adopters, organisations could drive efficiencies, reduce waste and improve transparency.
Join us for the Blockchain Conference 2017 where leading experts will explain how technology based on distributed ledgers will shape the future of services. Anticipate the benefits and limitations of adopting blockchain, understand how public sector leaders can facilitate early adoption and see how this new technology could revolutionise everything from voting to taxation.
