Description

A recent report from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development analyzed more than 200 government blockchain programs globally, a community that rapidly grows as public services explore the immense potential of this emerging technology. In order to better learn about blockchain and how to evaluate solutions to improve transaction performance, traceability and trust, public services must collaborate not just across silos between agencies, but side-by-side with the businesses, academic researchers and organizations that are leading these advances.

In this first of our new Emerging Technology Leadership Series, we invite Brian Behlendorf, executive director of the Hyperledger Project and one The New York Times’ “Top 10 People Leading the Blockchain Revolution,” to share insights from the source on what public services need to know and answer your questions about collaborative development of blockchain solutions.

The Hyperledger Project, started in December 2015 by the Linux Foundation, is an open source initiative to support the collaborative development of blockchain-based distributed ledgers.

The Emerging Technology Leadership Series, hosted by the U.S. General Services Administration Emerging Citizen Technology Office, is a six-part livestream pilot to enhance the modern federal workforce with training, education and awareness of emerging technologies including Artificial Intelligence, Robotic Process Automation, Blockchain, Social Technologies and Virtual/Augmented Reality.
