  • Blockchain Evening on Smart Contracts - A Legal & Dispute Resolution Analysis

    Smart contracts may revolutionise commercial transactions insofar as they create legally binding relations and are enforceable in a suitable dispute resolution forum. The use of computer programming is likely to give rise to technologically complex disputes that the courts of justice and non-specialised alternative dispute resolution service providers will not be equipped to handle. We suggest the creation of a Blockchain Dispute Resolution Authority to administer distributed ledger technology and smart contracts related disputes, pursuant to industry tailored rules of procedure and with the assistance of technological and legal experts.



  • Data Dialogue: Data Sharing Without Sharing Data

    We can’t reap the benefits of AI without access to the right data. In 2016, the world produced 16 ZB of data but only 1% was analyzed. Centralized data exchanges are lack of fair and flexible pricing mechanisms, data providers lose control over their assets, and there is a lack of transparency in how the data is used. This lack of trust is preventing data sharing. How do we solve this? In this session of data dialogue, we are going to dive deep into how data sharing without sharing data could occur.
