Blockchain

Discover the public and private implementations of this new type of database, and see how it can create new crypto-economies, as well as optimise existing infrastructure.

Newsweek’s first blockchain event will examine the evolution of public currency chains like Bitcoin and Ethereum, as well as the many private implementations we are seeing today. There will be a close look at how different camps are addressing some of the big use cases out there, such as upgrading financial services clearing and settlement infrastructure, storing reference data like health records and KYC documents, or optimising supply chains and trade finance. Expect to hear from the chief technical officers and computer scientists within academia who are focused on producing the next generation of consensus systems, and also CEOs of some of the most innovative blockchain projects about how they plan to build a better world using software.

Structure 2017

Meet the innovators who are building infrastructure for the next decade and hear the biggest names in cloud make predictions and forecasts about our future.

Distributed computing is the new cloud computing, meaning more processing will be done closer to the actual end user to improve performance and generate real-time data. What will this look like? How will the internet of things change infrastructure needs? Is it time to re-architect the web? As governments and corporations have come to dominate the most important crossroads of the internet, are de-centralized ideas for the internet about to come back into vogue? How does the public cloud best suit your organization? Who are the next “Super 7” infrastructure buyers? If 2015 was the year of experimentation with containers, and 2016 was the year of production, will 2017 see mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads? How will the data centers of the future be managed?
