Blockchain is a technology that has recently passed the peak of the hype cycle. What are the key insights? What makes it so revolutionary? Where to use it, and where not to use it? Rutger will introduce us to the concept of blockchain, digital public infrastructure, and explains us why it’s all about trust and collaboration.
Perspective is brought from both the technological and human point of view. Because the world doesn’t need blockchain or AI perse. Rather it needs new ways of collaboration to address the challenges of the 21st century, whether they are societal or economical, on a global scale or within an industry. We are currently seeing public blockchain networks such as Bitcoin and Ethereum enable new ways of collaboration and Rutger will explain how this can be applied in many other areas, from supply chain to the global sustainability goals.
Rutger has worked with the European Commission and EUIPO – European Union Intellectual Property Office (Trade marks and designs) to discover solutions for “the next level anti-counterfeiting infrastructure”, closely linked to supply chain. He is also working with many corporate and governmental clients like KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, TVM Logistics Insurance on multiple solutions.
