Every leader and every organization is having to move faster than ever before, and as companies, cities, and countries around the world look to drive digital transformation, the Internet of Things sits at the center. IoT is happening now, but we’ve only just begun to fully realize its potential. IoT is helping create a new world of value as we securely connect things, and capture, understand, and act on data, and this process is fueling innovation across the entire market. Working together, we can create the future of IoT, through sharing knowledge and expertise, ultimately setting the course for how business will be done in the future.
10:15-10:55 a.m. Animating the Physical World Through the Internet of Value
Don Tapscott, The Tapscott Group, Inc.
Co-author, Blockchain Revolution and Wikinomics
Author, The Digital Economy – 20th Anniversary Edition
The physical world is being animated – it’s coming alive as physical objects are imbued with the ability to not just sense, process, and communicate information but to think, learn and transact. But if these billions of things are to participate fully in the economy, our institutions and our daily life they need a commercial platform. The Internet of Everything needs a Ledger of Everything enabling it to do business, transact and generate economic value.

Don Tapscott, arguably the world’s leading thinker about the digital age over three decades argues that current Internet is evolving from a platform for information into a platform for value – based on the biggest innovation in computing science in a generation – blockchain. This Internet of Value enables us to animate the physical world and adopt powerful new business models. All this will change the nature of the firm and the way governments operate. It also has profound implications for IT strategy, architecture, and leadership as through it, every business can finally become a digital business.

Haydn Povey, Founder & CTO, SecureThingz
"What is our privacy worth? To marketers, your personal information, your likes and dislikes, and online behavior can mean profitable new revenue streams. To employers, keywords in your communications can tip them off to rogue insiders. And to governments, correlating whom you communicate with online, the web sites you visit, and your online searching and reading habits, may help identify potential criminal activity. And at the same time, strict personal privacy and data residency laws are being enacted in different parts of the world that will curtail who has access to an individual’s data. Can an IoT-adopting society stay safe, economically viable, and maintain individual privacy? Or has IoT adoption come at the cost of privacy?"
