Recenti scoperte matematiche e la loro combinazione in tabelle di transazione decentrate che non richiedono fiducia, hanno aperto la strada a un'ondata di innovazione senza precedenti nel campo della moneta digitale, della finanza, imprenditoria, e il commercio, su scala globale. Guidata da Bitcoin, questa innovazione sta diffondendo a nuovi livelli la creazione di uno stack di soluzioni non dissimili dal modo in cui il tradizionale stack TCP/IP ha sostenuto il boom di applicazioni Internet.

La promessa è di soluzioni finanziarie veramente rivoluzionarie per l’emancipazione di miliardi di persone che vivono oggi al di fuori del mondo moderno bancario e finanziario. Lo scontro con gli attuali operatori del settore è inevitabile e come tale deve essere gestito intelligentemente al fine di mantenere la velocità di innovazione, pur riconoscendo la necessità di un pubblico più vasto per far crescere la comprensione e la familiarità, senza gli svantaggi subiti dagli sperimentatori più spinti.

Parte del weekend H-ACK BANK di H-FARM Venture, questa presentazione di David Orban esplorerà le opportunità che gli sviluppatori con interessi cross-domain e competenze tra finanza e informatica saranno in grado di sfruttare, offrendo al mondo emozionanti applicazioni mai viste prima, generando valore su scale senza precedenti.

Creativity, Passion and Innovation in Finance, Banking and Law

Recent mathematical discoveries, and their combination in trustless decentralized transaction tables paved the way to a wave of unprecedented innovation in the fields of digital money, finance, entrepreneurship, commerce, on a global scale. Spearheaded by Bitcoin, this innovation is spreading out to new layers creating a stack of solutions not dissimilar from the way the traditional TCP/IP stack sustained the Internet application boom. The promise is that of truly revolutionary financial solutions emancipating billions of people who today live outside of the modern world of banking and finance. Their clash with the incumbent players in the field is unavoidable, and as such has to be smartly managed in order to maintain the speed of innovation, while recognizing the need of a wider public to grow its understanding and familiarity without the downsides suffered by the wildest experimenters.

Part of H-FARM Venture’s H-ACK BANK weekend, this talk by David Orban will explore the opportunities that developers with cross-domain interests and skills between finance and computer science can leverage, offering the world exciting never-before-seen applications generating value in unprecedented scales. (The talk will be delivered in Italian, and followed by a Q&A with the live audience.)

Please vote for HealthPhone on Katerva before March 28 in the Gender Equality category!
http://katerva.net/home/2013-pc-voting/

"If the Nobel Society had an award for sustainability, it would resemble the Katerva Awards, a new international prize for the most promising ideas and efforts to advance the planet toward sustainability." Reuters 2011

Nand Wadhawani says:
Katerva is not just interested in 'good' ideas; the ideas we are after will create big changes in how we live on this planet," says Katerva's founder, innovation expert Terry Waghorn. Founded in 2010, "Katerva's approach places emphasis squarely on action for a sustainable future—creating and implementing solutions to sustainability-related concerns," he says. "Katerva uses the power of technology to engage a global network of experts who help us find the most interesting innovations on the planet—the best ideas you have never heard of." Katerva is the first truly open worldwide platform for change.
HealthPhone http://healthphone.org is a Finalist in the Gender Equality category. We are humbled by this honour.

HealthPhone
HealthPhone is a mobile-phone-based personal video reference library and guide to better health and nutrition practices, for families and communities. The videos are pre-loaded on a US$3 microSD memory card to insert in basic mobile feature phones and have been created specifically with the illiterate in mind, and in their language, This gives them direct access to knowledge, in rich multimedia, to learn, share, educate others and use at the time when they need to deal with a health problem, where they are, and as they are, without a connection or cost. Videos are currently available in 63 languages.
HealthPhone was recently recognized by Healthcare Information For All (HIFA), a campaign and knowledge network with more than 7,000 members (health workers, publishers, librarians, information technologists, researchers, social scientists, journalists, policy-makers and others) representing 2,500 organisations in 171 countries worldwide, in this way

"With more than 97,000 health and fitness related apps ... 7 apps/projects (less than 0.01%) have the potential to empower citizens with life-saving information. HealthPhone is one of them."
Katerva also allows the public to help choose from the finalists the innovation they feel has the most to offer the world. You are invited to vote for the Katerva People's Choice Award from the 7th through the 28th of March on the Katerva website.

Check out the session with +Federico Pistono  CEO of Esplori at #SXSWedu: "What effect do the economic and technological changes taking place today have on adult education inside and outside of the classroom? Are the goals the same, or have the rules changed? Are we addressing these changes holistically, or ignoring them hoping they'll go away? Let's take a step back, and have a conversation about the challenges and opportunities these changes present."

L’evento, hosted by Frontiers of Interaction, consisterà in due sessioni dinamiche: 30 minuti di intervento dello speaker e 30 minuti di Q&A.

Esposizione dei fondamenti, Simone Riccardi
Bitcoin, pur essendo un nome frequentemente citato, molto spesso da luogo a dubbi, fraintendimenti e “fantastorie”. In questa introduzione al Bitcoin si parlerà della sua nascita ed evoluzione, tentando di capire i motivi che lo hanno reso così celebre. Quali sono i punti di forza e punti di debolezza nell’utilizzo della cripto-moneta digitale? Come possono essere generati i bitcoin? Come si possono effettuare pagamenti con la certezza che siano avvenute le transazioni? Bitcoin è decentralizzato, i trasferimenti avvengono “peer to peer”, senza limiti prestabiliti, ed il conto/portafoglio non può essere congelato. Non ci sono “accounts” da settare, e nessun indirizzo email, user-name o password sono richieste per mantenere o spendere bitcoin. La moneta appartiene a chiunque abbia la chiave privata per firmare una transazione. Bitcoin sta rivoluzionando il sistema economico/finanziario come internet ha rivoluzionato a suo tempo quello dell’informazione/comunicazione.

Esposizione delle applicazioni, David Orban
È importante analizzare le caratteristiche del protocollo che in presenza di un vero e proprio linguaggio di programmazione rendono Bitcoin adatto a fungere da piattaforma per applicazioni estremamente innovative. Non è esagerato chiamare Bitcoin con l’espressione di “Internet of Money”, perché potrà rendere estremamente efficienti operazioni attualmente costose, e con grandi barriere all’ingresso, come le emissioni internazionali, la costituzione di fondi fiduciari, la realizzazione di contratti finanziari sofisticati e compositi, la collocazione pubblica di quote societarie, la realizzazione di titoli derivati e così via. Uno degli aspetti più esaltanti di Bitcoin consiste nella promessa di coinvolgere nel mondo economico e finanziario moderno del 21º secolo quei 6 miliardi e mezzo di persone che non posseggono un conto bancario, una carta di credito, e che vivono in un’economia totalmente legata ai contanti. Facendo leva sulla diffusione capillare anche nei paesi dal reddito medio o basso, come quelli africani, sia di Internet che dei telefoni cellulari, permette la stessa riduzione di sei ordini di grandezza dei costi per il commercio elettronico che dall’introduzione del Web vent’anni fa la costruzione di siti ha subito. Globale, sicura, distribuita, senza frontiere, barriere, autorizzazioni, regolamentazioni, Bitcoin è similmente impossibile da fermare quanto il suo cugino, il protocollo di trasmissione dei file Bittorrent.

Frontiers of Interaction

È la conferenza internazionale su Tecnologia e Innovazione più rilevante in Italia. Nata nel 2005 in ambito universitario, nel tempo, FoI ha accentuato le sue peculiarità di conferenza fuori dagli schemi sia per la visionarietà dei temi e degli speaker, anticipatori spesso di trend e fenomeni, sia per il format, che include performance musicali e visive, installazioni artistiche, demo di prodotti e keynote unici. FoI è l’habitat ideale della tech community italiana, fatta di creativi, designer, innovatori, imprenditori, ricercatori, early adopters e geek di lungo corso. Nelle nove edizioni si sono alternati nomi del calibro di Richard Saul Wurman, (fondatore delle conferenze TED), Bruce Sterling, David Crane (Activision), Howard Rehingold, Amber Case, Adam Greenfield, Brad Templeton ed Elizabeth Churchill.
