Our Expertise Speaks For Itself
Entering the Ride-Sharing Environment
With transportation ushering in a new period of innovation and a new, evolving automotive ecosystem turning car-generated data into valuable products and services, the self-driving ecosystem is poised to have a huge impact not only on the new ride-sharing environment, but also on the technical and architectural enablers within the automotive industry.
Disruption may be an unavoidable reality: Is blockchain the new status quo?
It’s safe to say that blockchain is not going away, so people working in tech should have (at least) a base-level understanding of how this technology works. In the final part of our interview series, we dissect the IMF’s piece The Internet of Trust and discuss the lessons the IT world can learn from the blockchain technology.
A budding blockchain hub in Los Angeles is gaining traction as digital currencies such as bitcoin heat up amid a wave of speculation.

The New Mobility Ecosystem
Cars now generate data about how they are used, where they are and who is behind the wheel.
With greater proliferation of shared mobility, progress in powertrain electrification, car autonomy and vehicle connectivity, the amount of data from vehicles will grow exponentially, raising a key question: How might industry players in the evolving automotive ecosystem turn car-generated data into valuable products and services? More importantly, where does the architecture lie to permission and secure that data?

Will blockchain eliminate the middleman? Can it do that? Should it do that? These are just a few questions that hover over the technology behind Bitcoin. In the third part of our interview series, our nine experts talk about the connection between blockchain and the rise in cyber attacks and the elimination of the middlemen.
Is blockchain the land of milk and honey? 9 experts share their concerns
Is the blockchain just a hype? Can it offer an exponential benefit above other existing technologies? In the second part of our interview series, our nine experts talk about their concerns, the advantages of this technology, the obstacles to experimenting with it and the industries that cannot be disrupted by the blockchain.
From Car to Super Computer
It is becoming clear that the fundamental concepts of car ownership, ridership and even the physical asset of the automobile itself are about to transform, particularly with the horizon of fully-autonomous vehicles now estimated to become a market reality in 2020.
Can blockchain transform the world?
Douglas Adams got it all wrong, it seems. The answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything is not 42 — it’s blockchain, some will argue. Can the technology behind Bitcoin transform the world or should we take it with a grain of salt? We invited seven blockchain influencers to weigh in on its value and look beyond the hype.
Brad Smith is joined by Micah Winkelspecht, Founder and CEO of Gem at the Consensus Summit 2017.
