Identity: What’s Needed For The City
The event will offer the opportunity to join the discussion on the findings of a recently published report, which shows how identity management and authentication systems can make use of leading technology, such as smart ledgers, as well as exploring the social, economic, and political implications of their use. The research provides alternative models for practical identity management and authentication, and suggests considerations for policy makers, regulators, businesses, and individuals, both for the present and looking forward.
