MME @ Worldweb Forum

The 2018 Worldweb Forum has been a huge success with 1,500 attendees. Alongside Ed Vatmulls (President Disney & Pixar), Joh Scully (Ex CEO Apple & Pepsi) and Johann Schneider-Ammann (Swiss Federal Councillor), MME is proud to have supported the event with two verticals:

  • Lucy Gordon and Andreas Glarner held a keynote on „Legal implications on the real estate blockchain“: Smart buildings, driven by new technology, sensors, the Internet of Things connected through blockchains and controlled through smart-contracts are on the edge to become implemented. A highly efficient and secure way to validate and register information regarding the transfer and ownership of real estate is possible by the application of the blockchain technology. Digitalisation of transactions allows asset-backed crowdinvesting. The two MME speakers explored how such technology-driven innovation will have an implication in the real estate industry and what legal challenge they bring along. A summary of the presentation held will soon follow here.
  • Martin Eckert was on stage with GLENN GORE (Chief architect AMAZON WEB SERVICES), MICHAEL OSBORNE (head of the Security research group at IBM Research), RAY O'FARRELL (EVP & CTO VMWARE) and XAVIER POISSON, VP for CLOUD28+, HEWLETT PACKARD). He provided a keynote on data protection and cloud services. „New GDPR as a game changer“.
