April 28th Conference Day One

Track A - Data Sharing Models

Intelligent infrastructure open up huge new opportunities around data, in which the data can inform and power new economic growth. Its also allows for a new relationship with data, and - perhaps - for government and public entities to reshape their role in the data sharing economy and redress the balance of their relationship with tech.

2.30 The Wilmington Delaware Demonstration Project: “Planting the SEED: A Smart-City-In-A-Box Solution

This Standardized Entry Enterprise Deployment (SEED®) demonstration program incorporates an entry level connectivity system that is scalable to fit the needs of a digitally growing population and commercial opportunity.  The system incorporates mesh network technology, edge operating services, and mutualizes costs for institutional member-stakeholders who can develop, trade, clear and settle data exchange transactions securely which will speed up the overall digital ecosystem in incorporating more nodes which will become the “connector of blockchains” both public and private.
