In the summer of 2018 I was invited to give a keynote address at MyData Global. I took the opportunity to share the Domains of Identity (now a book) and weave them together with how Self-Sovereign Identity works and conclude highlighting the need for collaboration going forward.
I gave a presentation, “Introduction to Self-Sovereign Identity” at the Decentralized Web Summit in San Francisco, California, on August 1, 2018. Self-Sovereign Identity helps individuals have control over their own identifier. This talk shares the origins of the work and how it works.
I gave a talk, “Blockchain Vs. Cryptocurrencies” at Bridge SF in San Francisco, California, on May 23, 2018.
This talk articulates 1)what is a blockchain 2) why it is interesting 3) talks through use cases grounded in real-world projects 4) highlights questions government leaders should ask before deciding to use a blockchain.
I gave a talk, “Self-Sovereign Identity” at RightsCon in Tronto, Canada, on May 18, 2018.
Self-Sovereign Identity technology has enormous potential to empower individuals and address privacy challenges globally. It uses shared ledgers (blockchain) to give individuals the power to create and manage their own identifiers, collect verified claims and interact with others on the network on their terms.
I gave a presentation, “Identity is Changing: The Rise of Self-Sovereign Identity Infrastructure using Blockchain,” at InteroplTX on May 2, 2018.
Identity can seem deceptively simple. We know who we are. Sometimes we have to convince others of that fact and confirm other characteristics: our age, our qualifications, or our right to access some services or tools. This happens every day over the Internet, but in ways that are disorganized, redundant, and risky. The lack of reliable, universal standards puts our private information at risk of public dissemination, fraud or worse.
A new set of standards is emerging that creates an infrastructure for self-sovereign identity that can scale. This talk looks forward to help you think ahead and prepare for this new infrastructure. We will walk through standards that together create a new identity infrastructure that leverages the blockchain. This isn’t about what you can implement tomorrow to solve your employee identity challenges or manage customer accounts. It will instead prepare you for the coming changes and help you play a role in shaping them.
I was asked to give this talk at the What is Universe? at the University of Oregon, (on their Portland Campus). I cover the history of the Internet Identity Workshop and talk about its core nature as a torus / bowl a feminine form and how this has resulted in the innovation of Self-Sovereign Identity.
I was invited to give a talk at Privacy Identity and Innovation about the Digital Death and the conference that has happened a few times Digital Death Day.
I chose to lay out a matrix of questions that have arisen from the work. Enjoy the talk.
This presentation was presented as the pre-opening talk at Identity North 2016 in Toronto. It covers the big question – What is Identity? Key Concepts and Terms. Contextualizing Identity for Enterprise, Government and in the Commons.
This talk was presented at the 2016 Cloud Identity Summit. It was in the Rise of the Identity-enabled Personal Information Economy Track. It puts forward 6 Diagrams to make Sense of the overall Personal Data Ecosystem including What is Personal Data? What Happens to Personal Data? What are Market Models and how is it regulated?
This is the presentation I gave at the Grace Hopper Celebration for Women in Computing October 2015. It covers three main ethical market models that could support the emergence of a Personal Data Ecosystem centered on individuals and their personal clouds. The three models are Vendor Relationship Management, Infomediaries, and Data Aggregators. It highlights the need for Accountability Frameworks (also called Trust Frameworks) combinations of code and law/policy. This is contextualized in an overall Landscape picture where two other modes of governance also co-exist – Peer Governance and Identifier Governance.
I gave this talk on July 20, 2014.
This presentation was given at the 9th Augmented Reality Standards Community Meeting at the invitation of Christine Perey on May 29, 2013.
I gave this talk for EduServe in Birmingham, UK, on November 6th, 2012.
I, along with Bob Blakley, gave this talk as the closing keynote for the Cloud Identity Summit on July 19th, 2012 in Vail Colorado. It discusses a range of issues and options for identity in society. It postulates that social justice or fairness must be an underlying design feature of any system. It encourages people to get involved with the NSTIC process and the current steering committee being formed.
I presented to SDForum Tech Women’s group about Identity and Personal Data. I presented and also got input from the women attending about how they understood their own identities and what they want to have happen with their personal data.
As part of Tedx series focused on Identity, I gave a talk on “The Need for Limited Liability Personas.”
