Dr Ash Booth - Head of AI, HSBC, 
Artificial Intelligence in the Face of Data Privacy
Machine Learning and artificial intelligence more broadly have changed the way organizations work and are, without doubt, here to stay. The fuel propelling this organizational revolution is data - vast and disparate datasets that are very often made up of personal data. As such, it's clear that the use of these techniques has major implications for data protection, privacy and the rights of individuals - factors that are becoming increasingly important with the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
This keynote talk provides an overview of recent advances in encryption and machine learning techniques that allow firms to act within the GDPR, enabling not only social benefits such as community and dignity, but also commercial benefits such as improved insight, operational efficiency, and innovation.

Patrick Gauthier - Vice President of External Payment Services, Amazon, 
Connected Commerce
Amazon Pay was launched with the focus of simplifying the customer’s shopping experience; since it enables shoppers to check-in and check-out using information already stored in their Amazon accounts.  Amazon Pay is extending this experience from third-party websites to multiple channels, helping retailers connect with customers in multiple ways.  In this keynote presentation, we will highlight some key trends of today’s connected consumer and key consumer insights in payments.

Femtech in Fintech:  The Untapped Opportunities

Marta Piekarska - Director of Ecosystem at Hyperledger, The Linux Foundation.
Enterprise Blockchain:  Finding Trust and Security in the Chain
If Blockchain, the distributed ledger (DLT) underlying bitcoin is “the new black”, then it is time to ask:  is it secure?  We know it is more valuable than the currency it supports and enterprises have already started to put distributed ledger technology into practice.  However, it’s also important to understand the security implications for the industry and how blockchain potentially impacts transparency and trust.  In this inspirational keynote, we’ll explore the advantages of public vs. private blockchains and highlight some innovative lessons learned from enterprises successfully employing real-world blockchain solutions.
