Sharing Innovation in Global Cities/Communities/Regions
Author: Alex Huppenthal, Co-chair DSC
We have entered a new era, post Mobile, as cloud-based services increase value of open as well as free data models. Smart Cities advance their goals toward improved livability, greater infrastructure efficiency and planning through the fusion of IoT sensing, crowd-sourced data and connected smart devices.
The world’s first advanced hybridisation of concentrated solar power (CSP) and photovoltaic (PV) technologies. The best of both technologies are blended intended to bring cost per kilowatt hour to lower than fossil fuel plants.
From hospitality to manufacturing to oilfields, industries have started adopting sensor-enabled assets since few years now. Companies have started utilizing sensor data for predictive maintenance and other relevant uses. Electrical devices are being designed with energy efficiency in mind to reduce power requirements. Energy efficiency will be a major focus to reduce global greenhouse emissions.
Recent work at the US National Congressional level to ‘establish duties for online service providers with respect to end-user data that such providers collect and use’.
Consider the statement by Facebook: you “own all of the contact and information you post on Facebook” and “can control how it is shared.” Do you? The statement implies Facebook enacts how you’d like to share your data on your behalf – they have primary control over how your data is shared. Does this imply accountability on Facebook’s part? How is that measured? Proven? Are derivative data defined? Do you control derived data on your interaction with Social Media companies?
by Jean-Philippe Aumasson & Luis Merino Software Guard Extensions (SGX) is a technology available in Intel(R) CPUs released in autumn 2015. SGX allows a remote server to process a client’s secret data within a software enclave that hides the secrets from the operating system, hypervisor, and even BIOS or chipset manager, while giving cryptographic evidence to the client that the code has been executed correctly the very definition of secure remote computation.
Sanjay Bakshi, Principal Engineer @ Intel and Francois Branciard, Developer @ iExec present their work from the Trusted Computing team at Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) regarding the iExec solution for using SGX in Blockchain products.
In this video we are going to discuss the Enclave Definition Language used by Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX). The fundamental protection provided by Intel® SGX is that an enclave’s secrets can only be accessed by the code that is inside the enclave.
