Blockchain expertise captured the No. 1 position on the latest skills index by Upwork for being the hottest in the U.S. job market (Forbes ). In Australia, Blockchain was one of the factors whereby ACS became the first professional association in the ICT sector to be admitted as a member of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in September 2018, and multiple incubators and accelerators developed and grew massively to support the adoption of this technology.
This Workshop is focused on use cases of the Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies. We will answer questions about how to apply blockchain, why and “is it right for us?”. The workshop will feature Keynote presentations by Blockchain experts, and a panel will answer questions from the audience.
The first Keynote presenter is Dr Liming Zhu, Research Director, Software and Computational Systems of the CSIRO and a Blockchain GURU, who has participated in many international forums.
The second Keynote presenter is Steve Lennon, Digital Partner for Cognizant in Australia and NZ. He has been an active contributor with the IoT Association of Australia since its inception. His role covers the key digital technologies now impacting the business landscape, including IoT, data analytics, Blockchain, AR/MR, robotics, automation and 360? customer experience.
The third Keynote presenter is Darren Younger. He is the Chief Growth Officer and Co-Founder of the Lakeba Group, an established technology innovator, or “Reverse Incubator” recognised for developing an innovative business platform for conceiving, creating, and commercialising at scale, disruptive, digital solutions.
Everyone interested in this new exciting area is welcome to participate, senior decision-makers from the public and private sectors, experts, students, academics and stakeholders in general.
