Identity Redefined: Rebuilding Trust in a Post-COVID Era will be the first in a series of conferences that focus on the confluence of trust, technology and economic growth in the modern world
The pandemic has boosted our online presence: we work, shop and entertain ourselves on the world wide web more than ever. To feel truly comfortable in the digital space, we still need one thing – trust. The coronavirus outbreak has acted as a catalyst for adopting new technologies to safeguard identity and keep businesses afloat.
The inaugural conference, TrustReport.Live series, will be focusing on the digital identity in the post-COVID era. The keynote speaker, Rachel Botsman, is a Trust Fellow at Oxford University and a world-renowned trust expert, visual thinker and dynamic storyteller. Her work aims to help people think differently, talk meaningfully and act purposefully.. “Trust is the currency of the new economy,” she explains.
She will be joined by a number of luminaries from the tech world and other industries, where identity is quintessential for providing services. The online event will be held on February 25th at 2 PM CET. Expect three hours filled with keynotes, interviews, expert insights, and experiences from real-world applications of technology culminating in a panel discussion about the most urgent issues of the near future.
The speakers include Taavet Hinrikus from the fintech unicorn TransferWise, Blair Crawford from the Australian company Daltrey that aims to provide game-changing passwordless identity straddling both the physical and online worlds, Nigerian angel investor and activist Olayemi Keri from the business transformation firm Heckerbella, and Andy Smith from SITA, the largest provider of identification technology for the airline industry. They will be addressing the issues of trust and the role of technology in providing secure identity.
The event will be hosted by Greg Williams, a seasoned tech journalist and the editor-in-chief of Wired UK. The speakers will also be joined by Jan Lunter, co-founder and CEO of leading biometric provider, Innovatrics, the main partner of the conference. “While we are a tech company, our product is essentially human. In 16 years, we have identified over 1 billion people in 5 continents helping them to access services from accounts and loans to keeping public offices functioning during the pandemic,” he explains. The partners include the Austrian Institute of Technology, the Kempelen Institute of Intelligent Technologies and the Czech Technical University.
