Sam will give you a broad introduction to Bitcoin and the blockchain, to help you understand why there are millions of people around the world that believe in it, despite the skepticism and misconceptions.
We'll dive further into the different characteristics of a blockchain network. The 4 types of existing blockchains – public/private and permissioned/permissionless – will be discussed.
Bitcoin is old blockchain technology. Currently there are much more capable technologies under development. We'll discuss the differences between Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric in detail, both so-called blockchain 2.0 technologies.
Let's think and discuss about what your company can do with this technology. This managed brainstorming session is mainly aimed at business managers, but we'll make it useful for all.
MECOMS™ is Ferranti's flagship product that helps energy and utility companies serve their customers better. Their prospect-to-cash Meter Data Management (MDM) and Customer information system (CRM) is actually Microsoft's recommended solution for energy and utility companies across the globe.
This Belgian company now supports smart contracts using private blockchain technology (Ethereum) to allow peer-to-peer energy trading. By the way, their Mecoms product is also using Microsoft's latest cognitive solutions to revolutionise customer service via the MIA (Mecoms Interactive Agent) chatbot.
We show you how to build a blockchain from scratch. We'll guide you through the different steps needed to set up a private ethereum blockchain network. This demonstration and presentation focuses on technology, tools and skills, and contains some technical details, do's and don'ts, and coding examples.
Blockchain will undoubtedly have an enormous impact on our society. But how will the technology further evolve and what are the different visions ? How it will integrate on different levels of our daily lives? Will the Internet-of-Everything (IoT/IoE), smart cities and sharing economy be built on top of blockchains ?
We'll discuss how the blockchain in combination with other technologies can bring science fiction closer to reality.
