Speaker - Martin Krafft
Martin ("madduck") is a Debian and Free Software developer of more than 20 years. He's received a High Honors Bachelor in AI, cognitive psychology, and robotics, and wrote his Ph.D. dissertation on tool adoption behaviour in Debian. He's founded several companies, and currently makes a living as self-employed advisor to tech startups, and large multi-national corporations. Martin is a privacy and decentralization advocate, and an Edmund Hillary Fellow, in part for his work on decentralization. He loves blockchain, but doesn't regard it as the holy grail. He actually finds projects such as Scuttlebutt much more exciting. He's currently working on several projects in the space of decentralized digital identity. As father of two girls, he hopes they won't (have to) grow up giving up their privacy in return for gratis services.
- What Makes Decentralisation Hard? And How Do We Overcome This? – Wednesday 1:30 p.m.–2:15 p.m. in Room 6
