How Digital Identity can help social inclusion & economic growth in 2021
Martin Wilson, CEO of Digital Identity Net, speaks about the ways digital identity will help address the challenges society faces post-pandemic, how banks are using it in their favour when competing with big tech and fintech, and where we can expect to see practical digital identity solutions being developed in 2021.
Digital Person Symposium 2020 | Digital Identity in Economic Markets chaired by Professor Irene Ng.
This panel is chaired by Professor Irene Ng with the presentations from Michael Lu, Director of Strategy (Security and Privacy) at ARM, and Professor YoungJin Yoo from Case Western University.
About the Panel:
Sensor data on a phone has always been an information good held by the technology firm that controls it, for example, Apple and Google for iOS and Android phones. Whether it’s Bluetooth identifier, location data or a MAC address, the ability for that information to move at great speeds and at scale through the Internet makes it an attractive asset for achieving mass coordination of the people that hold the devices. Little wonder that it is sought by governments in their attempt to carefully mobilize a workforce to get the economy restarted. The information from devices creates a three tier market. First, for the data itself, and access to it. Second, for the information it transmits and third, for the ability of that information to coordinate other markets such as health and finance. Is it acceptable to restrict transactions on the data (such as the conditions Apple and Google are imposing for covid19 tracing apps) in the name of keeping transactions safe (a necessary component of a market). At what point does this become market manipulation?

About the Symposium on the Digital Person:
The use of personal data is of enormous global concern. The Digital Person symposium is an annual event organised by the HAT-LAB and Dataswift that discusses personal data from three perspectives:
1. Digital personhood, law, freedom and democracy (humanities)
2. Value, economics and markets (social science)
3. Data analytics, data science and technology (science and technology).

Mission Billion: Transforming Countries and Empowering People through Digital Identity
Digital identification systems can be a powerful platform to enable inclusion and the transformation of how services are delivered and accessed, particularly in the digital age. However, an estimated one billion people around the world lack official proof of identity and millions more have forms of identification that cannot be reliably verified or authenticated. This problem disproportionately affects the most vulnerable people, including marginalized women and children, refugees, and migrants.
This event will explore how to seize the opportunity of ‘Good’ digital ID systems –those that are robust, inclusive, and trusted – to expand access to services, encourage innovation, accelerate financial inclusion, and boost the digital economy. Prominent speakers will share perspectives from their countries, organizations, and sectors. The high level panel will be followed by pitches from the six Mission Billion innovation challenge finalists and the announcement of the winners. The challenge sought to surface practical and cost-effective solutions to embed ‘privacy by design’ into digital ID systems and to empower people agency over their digital identity.
