Banknotes and IDs: combating crime in a digital world

09:30-09:40 Opening

09:40-10:10KEYNOTE - The many futures of identity and money

Our identity and our money are the cornerstones of life in the 21st century and the digital domain is transforming our notions of both. On the one hand technologies such as blockchain and AI are enabling both identity and money to be moved into the digital realm and turned from passive objects into programmable tokens which can develop lives of their own. On the other, sensors, edge computing, and biometrics are enabling us to transfer digital functionality into the physical domain giving a potentially new lease of life to passports, money, and previously mono-functional physical objects. Look a little further ahead, and breakthroughs in brainprinting, biology, DNA storage, and biological computation open up whole new realms of possibility for how we might manage identity, store our financial assets, and conduct value exchange. This fast paced session will take us on a tour of the trends, developments, ideas that could shape the future of identity and money and explore the possible scenarios that could emerge.
