Hyperledger In-depth: Pravici- Verifiable Credentials – How to bring students and employees back to school and work while respecting their privacy in the covid era
August 18 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT
Students need to get back to interacting with each other and faculty face to face in order to maximize their education experience; similarly, employees need to interact with each other from time to time in person to generate new ideas, form relationships and build the next best thing together. The post pandemic world will have the effects of the virus with us for a while, so how do we protect each other in a way that also respects our privacy? Verifiable Credentials is one way to do this in order to securely check the status of a vaccination, antibody test or virus test without having to track this in a central database. Hyperledger member company Pravici will discuss how this can be achieved and the practical limitations and issues trying to bring this technology to the fore for Covid mitigation.
They will demo examples, talk about the technology and standards and what the world can expect in the immediate future. Pravici will also touch upon the wide applicability of this technology as Self-Sovereign Identity becomes more prevalent in multiple domains.
In the “Hyperledger In-depth: An hour with… .” series, Hyperledger members share learnings from their projects and try to answer all the hard questions about the pains of working with DLTs. It is not yet another webinar: participants will be encouraged to take part, come with prepared questions and voice opinions. Expect live demos and tutorials, stories from the battle field and hopefully some heated discussions. Let’s get out of the zoom fatigue and engage to share experiences and build a stronger community.
