Will the next generation of wallets give crypto its Netscape moment?
  • Panellist Phil Chen - Decentralized Chief Officer, HTC

The web's original sin, so it goes, was that it was invented without a payment protocol. If the decentralised web is to succeed, it will need both slick browsers and robust crypto wallets. A new generation of applications, from Coinbase Wallet, to the longtime mobile-first Opera browser, to one of the world's most popular ethereum wallets, ImToken, to HTC's blockchain phone, are hoping they will help usher in a new "Netscape moment" for the decentralised web.

Businesses will reexamine their P&L with a 5G lens. Thus, The Network will become the differentiator that will redefine business processes, foster business innovation and pioneer new production, distribution and consumption models.

5G thus presents a unique opportunity for CSPs by putting the customer back in the driver’s seat and letting them pick and choose what network capabilities they want, what resources they need and accordingly are willing to pay for. The Network of the Future will be dynamically sliced and differentially priced. It's time to monetize digital.

  • Weak business plan: A solid plan will include a good Executive Summary, a mock-up of your product that helps investors and stakeholder understand and share your vision, demonstrate the comparative analysis you have done to demonstrate how you can succeed, and have a ballpark figure of what your costs will be

How to Make Decisions with Very Little Data: A Guide to Bayesian Inference
  • Satish Shankar - Data and AI Lead, Manulife

Despite the data revolution, most corporations only have very little data. In fact, nobody has "big data", because if you do, then you can always slice your dataset across a various groups repeatedly, and now you are back in the "small data" regime.

How can one efficiently leverage small amounts of data to make decisions in the face of uncertainty?

This talk will introduce Bayesian Inference, which is an under-appreciated but incredibly effective methodology for leveraging small data sets for decision making.

Bayesian inference was instrumental in cracking the Enigma code in World War II, searching for missing submarines, and a numerous other situations where critical decision making was necessary, the stakes were high and the data scarce.

The talk will introduce Bayesian Inference in way that is accessible to a wide audience and point the listeners to a list of tools and resources they can use immediately in their own business context.
