Ti:ger Conference Shows Blockchain Has Applications Beyond Bitcoin, Kinks For Lawyers To Hammer Out

TI:GER conference shows blockchain has applications beyond Bitcoin, kinks for lawyers to hammer out TI:GER conference shows blockchain has applications beyond Bitcoin, kinks for lawyers to hammer out By Patti Ghezzi | Emory Law | February 23, 2018 Nicole N. Morris, director of TI:GER, introduces a panel The 2018 TI:GER Innovation Conference tackled business and legal implications of blockchain, a technology that many innovators believe is changing the world. Blockchain is an exciting technology said Nicole N. Morris, director of TI:GER and professor of practice. It has many use cases from supply chain to executing agreements when pre-determined conditions are met.. There are many potential benefits behind blockchain, most of which depend on how the technology is used. Much of the blockchain buzz is around cryptocurrency, such as Bitcoin, but the conference emphasized other uses of the technology, including healthcare, real estate, insurance, banking and finance, and social impact, such as climate change. Blockchain is a way of storing records in a way that creates a digital trust between unrelated parties, eliminating the need for many intermediaries, said Rich Napoli, CEO of Objectfrontier, a software engineering firm. The technology has generated hyperbole, with predictions it will eliminate clerical jobs, cash and even lawyers. But Napoli said thats not the case, as the complicated nature of the technology will create new industries and processes. Though one of the touted advantages of blockchain is its security, it is still vulnerable to hacking like any software, Napoli said. People are pitching blockchain as a solution for everything, he said. You have to tamp that down a little bit. Like all technologies, it has problems. Panelists emphasized that it will take t Continue reading >>

Blockchain In Law: Second Annual Ai In Law Conference At Vanderbilt Law School

Blockchain In Law: Second Annual Ai In Law Conference At Vanderbilt Law School

Blockchain in Law: Second Annual AI in Law Conference at Vanderbilt Law School by Larry Bridgesmith, JD | CEO of Legal Alignment You may not have heard of blockchain. You may equate the word with Bitcoin. If you would like to know more about blockchain, check out Cat Moons posts in the ABA Technology in Law Today newsletter. Cat wrote two excellent primers on how blockchain works and how it will impact the work lawyers do. Part I explains the basics of blockchain and Part II describes how this technology will affect business clients and the services lawyers provide them. The only question is how fast. Gartner placed blockchain at the peak of the technology hype cycle last year. To a great degree, that is probably accurate. However, much progress is being made in blockchain applications in many industry sectors. FinTech is dedicating millions of dollars to create use cases and explore how blockchain is both a terminal challenge to the global finance industry and how to capitalize on the proliferation of private currencies like BitCoin. Nashville considers itself the home of healthcare. This is an industry badly in need of efficiency and cost management solutions to improve patient outcomes and reduce the price of a sector of our national economy which is out of control. Nashvilles Center for Medical Interoperability has convened most of the major providers and payers of healthcare to solve the problem of medical technologies that do not play well with each other. This technology defect alone results in hundreds of patient deaths daily. Blockchain may provide a link to solving this problem. For these reasons and many more, Vanderbilt Law Schools second annual AI in Law conference will focus solely on blockchain and how law will both impact and be impacted by this burgeon Continue reading >>

Mit Legal Forum On Ai And Blockchain

Mit Legal Forum On Ai And Blockchain

On October 30th and 31st, Legal Talk Network attended and covered the inaugural MIT Legal Forum on AI and Blockchain at the Massachusetts Institute of Technologys Media Lab. This two-day event in Cambridge featured big names in legal technology from MIT, IBM Watson, Baker & Hostetler, CodeX, blockchain startups, and Cryptocurrency organizations. The presentations, breakout groups, and panels were far beyond platitudes and lofty predictions. They were about the nuts and bolts of utilizing artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies in the legal profession. During our many travels around the country to legal tech conferences, we have encountered numerous opinions and ponderings about artificial intelligence and more recently blockchain. Questions like will artificial intelligence take our jobs and what is blockchain and how is it relevant to my legal practice are commonplace. Because these fields are relatively new and the legal profession is under widespread pressure to modernize, inquiries of this nature can be difficult to address satisfactorily. Led by MIT visiting scientist Daniel Dazza Greenwood , the MIT Legal Forum took a different approach to answering questions like the ones mentioned above. Conference attendees were treated as active participants as they played a role in what would ultimately be discussed. Although there was a schedule of events, the content and subject matter were set to change based on feedback from the attendees. In addition, there were smaller gatherings of breakout groups designed to generate ideas, discussions, and expertise exchange in smaller more intimate venues. Notably, these breakout groups continue innovating online even after the in-person part of the conference ended on October 31st. Legal Talk Network (@LegalTalkNet) Oc Continue reading >>

Associate Clinical Professor Aaron Wright The Blockchain Project was created by Associate Clinical Professor Aaron Wright , a leader in legal education in the field of law and technology. Blockchain technology is revolutionizing finance, creating new outlooks for the worlds financial systems, eliminating the need for a central bank or human intermediaries, and using code to facilitate automated transactions. The Cardozo Blockchain Projectis co-directed by Professor Wright and Professor Jeanne Schroeder, and will aim to explore the legal questions that surround blockchain technology and the numerous legal and policy issues stemming from it. Blockchains maintain a continuously growing list of ordered records called blocks, functioning as an open record of transactions. Companies can build upon the technological layers. The concept is a fast-growing tool that can change finance and industry the same way the Internet changed consumer services and socialization. The Blockchain Project brings together academics, technologists, policymakers and members of the private sector for symposia, workshops and events that explore blockchains impact on law, government and society. The program provides training to law students and lawyers about blockchain technology and how to develop blockchain-based legal agreements. The project will issue policy papers and research related to the technology.

International Conference 'blockchain, Public Trust, Law And Governance'

International Conference 'blockchain, Public Trust, Law And Governance'

Blockchain, Public Trust, Law and Governance International Conference 'Blockchain, Public Trust, Law and Governance' The Economist named blockchain the ultimate trust machine that is deemed to replace traditional banking systems, land registers, public record systems, and even traditional election voting systems. Blockchain offers the opportunity to address the trust, transparency, and bureaucracy challenges that several public bodies currently face. Furthermore, the blockchain offers new collaboration opportunities between governments and citizens. It verifies close to real time transactions, simplifies regulatory compliance, promises efficiency gains through the reduction of intermediaries, and reduces the risks of fraud and cybercrime. Throughout the world, governments are experimenting with blockchain in different areas. However, it remains a black box to many citizens, public bodies, and companies. This in itself raises concerns for areas where democratic processes are essential to create legitimacy. Additionally, many question whether the technology is stable and secure over the long-run, if total transparency is desirable for all kinds of public services, whether it is scalable enough or consumes too much energy, what its social impact is, whether existing legal frameworks are challenged by this system, and how the technology and its users can be fixed if mistakes occur. Hence, the trust machine has not been able to conquer the minds and hearts of many skeptical public and private actors. The conference Blockchain, Public Trust, Law and Governance will bring together reputed academics, talented professionals, and a selection of innovative entrepreneurs working on blockchain to discuss the applications of this technology to government as well as its regulatory, e Continue reading >>
