Expert Group: Spatial Data Analytics – Geospatial insights for all – from unique applications to future trends

The Power of Where – this frequently used statement underscores the importance of spatial data and spatial data analytics. All people interested in spatial data are invited to actively participate and/or get an entertaining insight into the world of geospatial data.  Take the opportunity to make new contacts and exchange ideas with experts from industry and research.

In this open event, we will take a tour of your favourite datasets, look at the most unusual and fun applications, and discuss together trends in geospatial data and future challenges. Of course, current infrastructure topics such as low code platforms (GEE & friends), new machine learning concepts and applications (image segmentation, tiny ML & Co) and data creation/access developments (Open Data & GDPR) will not be missed. Intellectual nourishment is guaranteed

Expert Group: Blockchain Technology in Interorganisational Collaboration

Zurich has a new blockchain-based local currency: the “LEU”, which has already been discussed in the press.

The LEU is a currency and at the same time also a basic income that one receives by actively participating in the community. Although the LEU is based on blockchain technology, it has little to do with speculative cryptocurrencies: to receive the LEU, you have to meet regularly with members of the community. You can spend the LEU in local businesses in Zurich to promote the local economy.

The association Encointer will present the exciting LEU project and talk about the current developments and possibilities of such an alternative currency.

After a short introduction, we will cover the following topics. 
 – Introduction of Polkadot and Kusama Ecosystem.
 – Parachains and their advantages
 – Proof of personhood and sybill attacks 
 – Encointer vision, protocols and global communities
 – Status quo and field report Leu in Zurich

At the end we have some time to install the Encointer wallet and interact with it.
