IPDB Hackathon: Coding for a Web3 Society
Limited Capacity seats available

What is IPDB hackathon?
As a part of Revision Summit 2018, IPDB is hosting a one-day hackathon in collaboration with Jolocom, Riddle&Code, and Ocean Protocol. As many as 50 developers, UX/UI designers, hackers and makers from the Web3 will build an answer to the question: How do we reach a more human-centric and purpose-driven society in the digital age?

Our chief aim is to work together to turn talk into working code with a particular focus on:

- promoting democratic values in the digital age by advocating for basic freedoms and rights, and lowering the barrier to entry for democratic participation on the internet;
- expanding data protection by promoting data sovereignty for all citizens;
- improving social safety by supporting initiatives that embrace resilient, decentralized social safety nets adapted to respond to the challenges of the future; and
- sustainable economic growth that supports transition from profit-oriented economic systems to purpose-driven models.

__________________________

Why participate?
IPDB Hackathon #1 features among the various meetups, workshops and other events taking place on 19 November for Revision’s Co-Creators day.

The Curation Markets Team has joined Revision an international network of technology entrepreneurs, policy-makers, activists, scientists and investors that focus on the long-term social impact of emerging technologies such as Blockchain, AI and Big Data.

The 19th of November, as Co-creators, we will host our own workshop on Decentralized Attention Economy and Curation Markets.

What is this about:
A war is raging on the internet: Content creators are fighting relentlessly for our attention, which is becoming the scarcest resource of our time. And the world’s biggest internet companies are continuously expanding their monopoly over the power to direct this attention.
Blockchain technology can disrupt and disintermediate the attention economy. Programmable crypto-tokens allow us to price the value of information and create free, open, competitive markets for attention. In this workshop you can learn how this works, why it matters and how you might use it for your own work.

Outline:
We will start off with an introduction to decentralized attention networks and curation markets.
After that, we will have 1-2 founders, who work in this niche of the blockchain space, present their projects.
We will then move to a workshop format, where participants can form teams and develop their own ideas for tokenized attention networks under the expert guidance of the entrepreneurs.

The event will be two and a half hours long. We will keep it light-hearted and intersperse it with social games and informal networking.

On Weaponised Design
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Weaponised design is a process that allows for involuntary harm of users within the defined bounds of a digital system. Often facilitated by designers oblivious to the politics of digital infrastructure, interface design is still widely considered to be an apolitical practice, despite traumatic events against users with increasing regularity.
In the context of online services and platforms, this workshop will investigate how this techno-social phenomenon takes place. Through in-depth case studies and discussions, participants will have a chance to widen their understanding of how systems and interfaces once deployed, can produce unwanted effects, as well as tools that might prevent and mitigate their negative consequences.

GIZ Blockchain Lab - Blockchain and Transparency: The current state of blockchain supply chains
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Much ink has been spilled on the potential of blockchain-powered supply chains. Blockchain, among other technologies, has been deemed capable of improving logistics, facilitating trade finance and ensuring tamper-proof traceability. It is on these promises that key business players have launched large-scale initiatives, perhaps the most well-known being piloted by IBM and Maersk Tradelens. In all these undertakings, transparency remains the underpinning motive, enabling the actors of the supply chain to trade without prior trust and to verify at any moment the provenance of handled goods.

More transparent supply chains also have the potential to incentivize fairer sourcing
conditions by shedding light on socially and environmentally unsustainable
production practices. Whether for textile, fish, or minerals, blockchain is an
unprecedented solution to never lose sight of how goods are being produced,
processed, manufactured and transported. Higher transparency standards can thus
have a positive impact in emerging markets as smallholders reap the benefits of
delivering goods that are verifiably and fairly produced.

Even if blockchain is the perfect technology to support more transparent supply
chains, implementing scalable solutions for social good remains challenging. Despite
the commitment of numerous NGOs, start-ups, and international organizations,
several questions remain open. How, for instance, can real decentralization be
guaranteed when human intervention is still essential to first-mile certification? And
how can fungible goods without a unique identity be traced via a digital token?
As we move away from the early stages of blockchain towards more tangible
endeavours, such concrete pain-points need to be tackled. For this reason, we are
engaging with both the tech ecosystem and international development actors to delve
straight into the topic. With this unique mix of participants, we aim not only to
formulate solutions, but to uncover real paths for cross-sectoral collaboration.

IoT & Blockchain - AnyLedger joins Revision
Limited Capacity seats available

AnyLedger has joined Revision - an international network of technology entrepreneurs, policy-makers, activists, scientists and investors that focus on the long-term social impact of emerging technologies such as Blockchain, AI and Big Data.

On November 19th, we will host our own Revision meetup about IoT & Blockchain.

We are giving out 50 free tickets to our closest community that gives you access to the full Revision Summit. First come, first serve. 

See you there!

---------------------------------------

About the event:
Internet of Things (a.k.a. IoT) is bringing Internet connectivity to every day objects. Increased possibilities also mean increased risks and challenges to solve, such as the security vulnerabilities of a heterogenous landscape of devices and single point of failure architectures. Blockchain is a data structure allowing peer-to-peer decentralised consensus and tamper proof audit trail of events. When combining the decentralised software (blockchain) with the decentralised hardware (IoT), we have a glimpse on how the future will be: fair, automated and peer-to-peer.
We will talk about what is missing at the moment in the space and how the fusion of physical and digital will impact our lives, with concrete example use cases.

About AnyLedger:
AnyLedger solves the technical and adoption challenges in the IoT-Blockchain space by building the first blockchain agnostic embedded wallet. Every device will be able to execute transactions and interact with the blockchain. We allow companies to craft a secure IoT infrastructure, powered by any kind of blockchain.

Blockchain & the New Data Economy: Design Your Own Tokenized Ecosystem
Limited Capacity filling up

An interactive session on how DLT & tokenized ecosystems can facilitate a level playing field in the data-driven economy and cause a paradigm shift from the internet of Google and Facebook to a user-owned, collaborative, and secure information landscape.

You will design your own tokenised ecosystem to help shape new systems where participants can own and control their data, monetize it, and leverage it in order to unlock enormous value for society as a whole.

The goal of this workshop is to raise awareness for the possibilities that blockchain technology holds with respect to data - both in reshaping existing industries and creating entirely new ones that could lead to a more equal wealth distribution and increased financial inclusion.

Workshop (2.5 hours)

Opening (30 min):

DIA and Cryptadvise will talk about the utilisation of data as labor and as a common good.

- How DLT, tokens, and cryptography can change the status quo
- Incentivizing communities (work tokens, reputation, bounties etc.)

- Curation of data (Staking, bonding curves etc.)
- Cryptography (Secure Multi-party computation, homomorphic encryption)

Output part (1.5 h)

/1: Develop (45 min)

We will split up into groups of 4-5, pick a topic and systematically develop projects.

- Definition of objectives
- Objectives and constraints
- Design patterns and mechanisms

/2: Discuss (20 min)

The groups will then gather to explore how to either integrate and combine their solutions or just find similarities and differences: Challenge each other and learn from each other.

/3: Present (20 min)

Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

It seems that the western liberal world is suffering a crisis of meaning. While capitalism promises to offer endless individual paths it still seems difficult for some people to find their place. Trying to opt out of the system, radical alternatives such as ISIS or radical political parties seem to offer a tangible way to commit to a lifestyle that follows a higher purpose. How can we acknowledge these circumstances and deal with them and the effects in constructive ways? How can we create spaces for more engagement and agency, using new technologies and enable everyone to engage?

What does it mean to set emerging technologies in the context of social transformation? We want to set the stage for what we think is the prerequisite for tackling the challenges of our century: having the right visions and narratives in place in order to ignite people to make use of their agency and move towards a society, where human values such as empathy and community are at the center of action. What tools do emerging technologies give us at hand in order to realize new forms of existence? How do we need to frame them in order to support transitions towards a more human-centered approach?

This project is developed using the mushroom mycelium as a living example of the rhizome figure created by Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari. By comparing those 2 systems, and exploring their inherent characteristics and architecture, is then possible to find their structure occurring in other dimensions of the existent, like the brain, the internet, the black matter in the outer space, the protozoa kingdom and artificial neuronal networks. By doing that, it is possible to define the mycelium and the rhizome as an archetypal shape of system, and therefore, understand it as a naturally created structure that permits flows of energy in special ways, at the same time that occurs in nature and technology blurring the line marked between them. Finally, and with the boundaries between us and our technology dissolved, this proje

[Panel] Future of Work - Do We Need a Universal Basic Income?
Most people spend at least ¼ of their productive lifetimes at work. Indicators show a growth in productivity while at the same time studies have pointed out that a great proportion of it is happening due to automation. Some scenarios indicate that over the next 10 years at least 50% of all current jobs could be automated. In this context, how do we envision the future of work? In a world where the 5 richest people on earth accumulated more wealth than the 50% poorest, what are ideas and narratives of the concept of work, that help us to address the mentioned challenges?. Are our current social infrastructures up for the task? ? Could a universal basic income be a reasonable solution? Or is it only a tool for existing elites to manifest the status-quo of inequality?

The simulation of participation or facilitation of endless devious tweet tirades has benefitted the staggering potential to influence and create impulses. How can we engage new possibilities for creating facts and tackle imitations of sincerity? How can the notion of human-centric automation popularize and shift cybernation, from a foreseeable exhaustion to a hybrid and sustainable prospect? How does technology and digital transformation impact productivity?

This roundtable brings together a comprehensive group to engage the Likes and Dislikes of today’s digital condition. Journalists, entrepreneurs and artists will engage strategies to influence interdisciplinary human-centric thought and application.

[Keynote + Discussion] In the Shadow of Fiat
Limited Capacity seats available

The original promise of the blockchain, apparent from a quick read of Satoshi’s original paper, was that of a new payment network, a better way for us to transact value to each other. Over the last few years, this promise has taken a back seat to the investment gains that could be made by speculating on the price of Bitcoin, Ether, or any one of thousands of ICO tokens. Looking through this lens, the recent explosion in interest and excitement over stablecoins reflects a return to the genesis of the entire blockchain movement.
This return to our roots though has not come without a cost, stablecoins today are designed to merely follow fiat currencies like the US Dollar and the Euro. In this workshop and talk, we’ll take a look at whether or not we should really be so timid, the strengths and weaknesses of our current stablecoins, and introduce a new stablecoin model that may finally allow us to step out of the shadow of fiat.

Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Emotions are a vital source of energy and clarity. Particularly empathy, the human capacity to sense what others feel, is indispensable if we want to collaborate. Yet, rather than honoring and nurturing emotions and empathy, we often try to suppress or manipulate them, following a numb and emotionless „rational machine“ ideal - at work, in relationships or in politics.
How can we make space for open, candid emotions as a source of energy in life and work, rather than trying to suppress or manipulate them? There’s so much to gain if we create space for them.

[Roundtable] Somatic Intelligence - Lessons From Body Work for Business and Discourse
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

In the professional world, interactions take place predominantly on the verbal and intellectual level. An assumption underlying this circumstance seems to be that language and intellectual exchange is somehow objective and universal while physical or emotional exchange is not. The notion of Somatic Intelligence suggests that even subtle physical exchange can serve as a much more direct tool to communicate and to identify unconscious behaviours, patterns, and projections affecting verbal discourse. In this roundtable we want to discuss ideas around the supposed objectivity of language and how insights from body work and movement can help establish a more complex, truthful, and clear exchange and understanding within a group. Naturally, the session will begin with a handful of playful physical exercises to illustrate this argument and to create a common point of departure.

[Keynote] Disrupting the Idea of "Doing Good"? - New Approaches to Philantrophy
A lot of people became very wealthy over the past 20 years, many of whom drove innovation or invested in technology.

The concept of “disruption” played a key role in many of these processes. They changed the way we work, communicate, learn, travel, and love. But will they change the way we do good in this world as well? Is it time to disrupt philanthropy? From Social Entrepreneurship to the Blockchain for Good, we will speak about current approaches to this issue, their opportunities and limitations.

[Panel] Ownership - Who Owns What and How?
In this panel we will discuss the idea of ownership and try to understand different variables of it. In times of increasing sharing economy principles and emerging technologies such as blockchain, new nuances of ownership emerge. What are and should be the responsibilities and rights of owning? What are the risks, the incentives and possible rewards in new structures of common goods? Does this open up new possibilities of dealing with the problem of the commons?

[Roundtable] Gender Politics
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

EVERYTHING, all the time, INTERSECTIONAL 
What is gender anyway?
This round table will be a point of departure to address inequality and disproportionately distributed power in the tech scene (and most likely the world). We will start by looking at government and Policy makers with Ines, exploring her work in this area and then we will open up the conversation to absolutely EVERYTHING intersectional. 
Gender has been used as a tool to oppress and suppress the power of the feminine. In this case we will call that womyn (this is not a typo, but a proposition to omit men from womin - however else we can spell it phonetically so it reads the same). It is important in theses spaces to look at and acknowledge privilege and create a discourse that focuses on shifting the paradigm of representation and equality. 
Together, we will unpack these ideas and actively engage in discourse centred around equality, which means that we will look at diversity and how we can create new systems that are more inclusive, shifting the paradigm and creating a new vision for working in tech and the world.

[Roundtable] Designing the Function of Currency: The Emerging Field of Cryptoeconomics
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Cryptoeconomic incentive mechanisms create a novel solution space that goes beyond what currencies were traditionally been designed and used for. We will kick off the discussion with a brief introduction to cryptoeconomics as a "science that focuses on the design and characterization" of "protocols that govern the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services in a decentralized digital economy" (Zamfir, 2015). Key to our discussion will be the role of quantitative incentive mechanisms. Touching on Campbell's law stating that "the more any quantitative social indicator is used for social decision-making, the more subject it will be to corruption pressures and the more apt it will be to distort and corrupt the social processes it is intended to monitor", this roundtable aims to discuss how cryptoeconomic principles may facilitate social structures that are sustainable and, finally, give an outlook on the notion of post-incentive design.

[Panel] Finances in an Age of Finite Resources
Ten years after Lehman and ten years after Nakamoto it became clear our current financial system is imperfect in many ways. Against the backdrop of emerging technologies, such as blockchain, the question arises if we have found adequate additions or alternatives to it. In this panel we will discuss the current financial system while looking at its risks and contrasting it to alternative ways and financial approaches. Are current frameworks still up to date? What changes are emerging financial technologies pushing for? What are far-fetched visions and what are realistic alternatives? How can we reconcile new technologies with existing infrastructure - through central-bank backed digital currencies? How do we change the enormous gap between infinite monetary value and finite resources?

[Roundtable] AI and Neurotechnology in the Near Future - In Need of a Global Inclusive Think Tank
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Technology pushes us towards times of massive changes. Social Media once considered as mere nudging, has already shown its potential for full-blown social engineering. In comparison, how will Neurotechnology impact humanity? Alongside artificial intelligence, brain computer interfaces imminently mark an emerging revolutionary technology of the next decades. Whereas the two fields seem like a marriage of convenience, an ocean of implications and possible dangers arises, through misuse by both human or artificial intelligent parties. 
Meanwhile statistics and findings that are utilized to determine future policy-making are usually provided by research groups of universities and research institutes, both non-profit or for-profit, whereas in both cases we are potentially facing funding and publication bias. Further there is a trend of AI scientists being attracted by large companies, leaving it to the company to decide what findings to publish and which not.
As politics usually lack behind in effective decision-making, it is now time to apprehend the complete spectrum of our responsibilities. We propose and would like to discuss a global hub that connects experts from various fields, such as politicians, economists, computer scientists with socialists, psychologists and neuroscientists:
  • integrating existing think tanks based on transparency and impact, embrace data science and modeling of information, predictive analytics
  • identify synergetic potentials, elaborate on systematic approaches and strategies to minimize cognitive biases
  • place incentives for collaboration
  • increase integrity and validity in scientific findings, by embracing blockchain technology
  • streamline science policies, knowledge distribution
  • define and serve common goals, identify limits 
  • retreat as think tank (exemplarily tracing the path of the Esalen Institute, construe chances to establish the blueprint of a modern cosmopolitical place to reflect, synergize and expand consciousness in times of fragmented focus.
  • the development of cognitive architectures (AI), i.e. flexible expert systems to support data analysis and thus decision-making - over time reach towards a global metamind supporting us to further understand where we think we want to go as human kind
This round table is an attempt to stimulate discussions on neurotechnology, transhumanism and global collaboration strategies, as well as exploring the founding of a novel think tank.

[Roundtable] The Era of Women
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Moving towards a more human-centric digital age also involves focusing on diversity and equality. The empowerment of women remains an integral component of social change. This roundtable will focus on the issues women face on a daily basis, and what actionable paths are possible to bring about safety, power and equality for women. This is a topic that should be approached from an intersectional lens, considering how secondary and tertiary marginalised identities, such as race and sexuality, create additional prejudices for women. Defining feminism itself is also an integral part of the process, and to understand how feminist thought and action have a direct benefit to all of humanity, regardless of gender. Amongst talking about women’s empowerment, we also want to explore gender itself - to understand the characteristics associated with women (or men) as cultural and internalised qualities, rather than natural or biological aspects. From issues such as privatised as domestic violence, to the structural rigidity that continues to detract power from women, we hope to set in motion conversations and actions that will accelerate the feminist agenda.

In this panel we will discuss about how we could use technologies to create a more inclusive and democratic world. In February 8, 1996, John Perry Barlow published the famous Declaration of Independence of Cyberspace. This declaration mirrors an idea where the internet and new technologies come together to liberate the individual from the monopoly and corporate power. Over the last decade new technologies changed power structures in the world, but where to? The technology industry has grown to dominate almost all aspects of human life and in the internet sphere power concentration has even increased. How does this comply to democratic principles? How can technology be reframed in order to distribute ownership and governance?

[Roundtable] A Social Sculpture Academy: Developing Capacities and New Knowledge for an Eco-Social Future
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

The proposed Social Sculpture Academy sees the human being as a social artist at the centre of the work to shape a humane and ecologically viable future in which all human and other-than-human beings are respected and valued and connective ways of living and knowing are explored. Drawing on 4 decades of social sculpture and connective practice work in formal institutions and with communities around the world, the Social Sculpture Academy integrates the radical 'education for liberation' work of Paulo Freire, mindfulness work, approaches to ecological justice and sustainability, and Joseph Beuys' 'expanded understanding of art'.
The round table will outline how the Social Sculpture Academy will be the hub for a series of globally accessible on and off-line programmes for change-makers round the world and the significance of its roots in social sculpture and connective practice. It will also consider the importance of an intergenerational faculty of creative practitioners, activists and pedagogic enablers with global cross sector experience and the value of it having a base in Berlin.
By enabling the development of our capacities for envisioning, thinking together and empathy; by engaging with different ways of knowing, including indigenous knowledge systems such as Ubuntu in Africa, and through exploring connective political, economic and eco-social forms, the Social Sculpture Academy will contribute to the global movement striving to overcome unnecessary suffering and to reconfigure a just, non-exploitative and life enhancing relationship to each other and all life forms.
The Social Sculpture Academy seeks social investment as a new start up - working from a base in Berlin - to develop forms of support for its programmes to be scaled out as a commons, and to maximise the substantial experiential and knowledge 'capital' that its faculty can contribute.
Social Sculpture practitioners linked to this initiative have been working with projects and people in many countries, including Brazil, India, China, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Australia, South Africa, Mexico, Senegal, Palestine, Portugal, Germany and Holland.
We look forward to your participation and support in the scaling out and on going development of this rich resource and of creating a base here in Berlin, for what Joseph Beuys described as the 'permanent conference'.

[Keynote] From Disaffected to Devoted Actors. From Liberalism to Extremism and Back.
Liberal democracy creates the space for people to express their individual identity. But ironically, individualistic societies create an identity crisis that puts people on a search for community. This phenomenon plays out most dramatically in the phenomenon of political extremism. Politically extremist groups take advantage of the uncertainty of identity that's created by liberalism to advocate for illiberal systems that are hierarchical, authoritarian, and uncompromising. Their narratives appeal to disaffected members of society who can reframe their personal uncertainty as a symptom of a broader society that's in moral disarray and must be harshly brought back into order. This talk will cover years of research in Mr. Hamid's face-to-face interviews with active members of ISIS and Al Qaida in conflict zones, including psychology and neuroscience experiments he was able to run on them. In addition, it will review a series of his studies conducted on far right nationalist movements in Europe and the US. The talk will culminate with research done on liberal democratic values in Western societies to show how they can be saved from their current decline.

[Panel] Patterns Beyond Sustainability - Exploring Principles for a Regenerative World
Talking about the digital quickly leads to excitement and hype. What we often forget is the broader picture with its negative externalities creating unknown effects. Some believe that technology itself could bring the solution, as one of the most dooming challenges of our time is around the environment. In this panel we would like to challenge our understanding of innovation and sustainability. We will try to understand the principles behind innovation and evaluate how such principles can contribute to building a system with regenerative characteristics. How might technology contribute to this process?

[Panel] Art - Social and Behaviour Change
Social practises rely on many different formats and so does social change. What role art and art practise can play in this regard will be the topic of this panel. How can we effectively foster behavioural change, the most relevant prerequisite for a change towards a more human-centric society? What impact does or can art have in this regard? Joseph Beuys already challenged the perception and works of “the social”, the question remains how his findings can be made fruitful for our current challenges.

[Panel] Exploring AI and the Common Good
AI is at a crossroads. It has promise to greatly improve the efficiency of how civilization runs. The question is: who will reap the rewards of these gains, the masses or a small handful of elites? Alas, with the likes of Google and Facebook we are currently heading in a direction where the answer is the handful of elites. How can we better spread the benefits of AI to serve a broader swath of humanity?

[keynote] Grappling with Technosolutionism
I will draw on cognitive science and trends in technological thinking to explore technosolutionism — the tendency to believe that there is a technical solution for everything. Though almost nobody explicitly endorses this tendency, I will argue that it is still a pervasive bias, and actually a major obstacle to human progress. Of course the response is not to stop innovating but to think critically about the limits of technology. To this end, I will present a formative taxonomy of the types of problems that technology can solve and ones that it cannot and solicit crowd feedback on this topic.

[Panel] Cultivating Empathy in Uncertain Times
World Religion has been mostly excluded from the technology discussion so far. But how much do the different Religions, mostly based on ideas of community, interconnection and empathy have in common with the ways we celebrate technology? Both are often based on devotion and various practices and rituals. Addressing the common grounds we ask what is needed to cultivate empathy and understanding in our uncertain times.
