GLOBAL FORUM PANEL DISCUSSION:
Rethinking Public Sector through Blockchain.
I. OVERVIEW, MARTA
Introduce Panel discussion.
(Marta) Introduce panel
Explain The Public Sector special interest group (Bobbi)
Hyperledger Public Sector Special Interest focused on applying distributed Ledger technology to the Public Sector. How did we come to this point , what motivated us....
Public Sector organizations are business set up with the aim of providing a public service . they exist in all three levels of government ( federal, state and local) . Most comprised of organizations that are owned or operated by government or work directly with those agencies that provide services for its citizens.
Governments role in society is to maintain trusted information. A role that will continue to be of central importance to its citizen.
By leveraging Blockchain Technology Governments can add trust to systems.
Tell us about the work you have been doing (Saptarshi)
ADD ideas here
How did we come up...COMMONALITY. what process we used... (Sean O'Kelly)
Add ideas Here
What have we found 4 themes
CONCLUSIONS ON COMMONALITY
1. Identity - Bobbi SSI, DID importance VON network
2. Regulations (as Saptarshi mentioned, we also refer to this as Regulatory Compliance) - degrees of efficiencies
3. Integration and Inter-operability Government is participate (validator of ecosystem or owner operator). (Sean)
4. Governance What does it mean for government governance of blockchain ( government backed blockchain standard governance model) (Sean).
Discover new pathways for the Public Sector when discovering the benefits of Blockchain Technology
HOW IS BLOCKCHAIN USED TODAY, Specifically Hyperledger
ADD EXAMPLES from Group
Bobbi: Dutch Initiative, Smart Dubai, New York Blockchain Apps
Saptarshi Hyperledger Iroha Cambodia , NSF DLT efficiency in PS, Kiva ,Sierra Leona Hyperledger Fabric Russia Saudi Arabia
Sean, Consumer lending, Regulatory Compliance, Fed Reserve Bank: Membership , Real Estate Transactions
Sustainable Development Goals (17) SDG - How Public Sector initiatives fit in with 2030 goal achievement
Are any projects happening now?
ADD Relevant projects
Fabric examples: Delaware Registration , Digital Identity solution North Carolina
Government lays down rules, Blockchain supplies a validation platform,
ADD Governance Examples
.* mix public and private
GDPR and Blockchain
AZ - Regulation in blockchain / other states
Security on Blockchain Privacy Conf. Security
What is preventing it from happening, Obstacles?
Add Obstacles Here
Market research into tech. stack used , where to find information from POC's Pilots and production Successes and failures
Fear of being first, out of box solutions do not exist
III. Application: Uses Cases
- Currently in use
- Proposed, POC
IV. CONCLUSIONS / Recommendations based on inferences during discussions final thoughts to connect everything together.
Add Conclusions from group
Marta draws final conclusion
- What we have learned / seen in SIG (presentations we have heard / conclusions from these examples that made us dive deeper)
- What we have consider / developed a common theme ( Identity, the interaction, the regulation and the governance)
"Governments' and other public sector entities core function is to act on behalf of society to create the laws and rules that must be followed, and to ensure that they are being followed. It is foundation-ally necessary for governments to have access to accurate, relevant, and complete information in order to fulfill these responsibilities, which is why governments possess legal, regulatory, and judicial mechanisms to compel the truth from all societal participants. This authority uniquely positions governments' as validators of truth and custodians of trusted information. Emerging technologies continually provide new capabilities that enable creativity and the rethinking of existing processes, interactions, and models. While all emerging technologies will play a role in the public sector, blockchain will certainly be among the most consequential, because of its specific role as a facilitator, validator, and custodian of trusted information. This technology promises to enable governments' and other public sector entities to interact with societal participants within a larger ecosystem, or fabric, which will break down traditional public-private silos and provide completely new approaches toward governance. The key components of this ecosystem are a) identity (real world items of value (assets) that can be represented digitally), b) interactions (traceability of transactions), c) regulatory compliance (the embedded laws, rules, and contracts that should be followed), and d) governance (the creation, maintenance, and operation of the ecosystem)."
Benefits to the Ecosystem *
"We believe this discussion is compelling because every single regulated industry across all countries will be both impacted by and require cooperation from the public sector."
