What are you hoping to learn about or hear a presentation about at IIW?

  • Evolving SSI, DID & respectful technologies and their interplay in the realm of the HumanOS (Human Nature) Management & Intention Management in the realm of connected systems, data generation and brain science game space.
  • New technical advances in SSI and also Solutions to the governance on top of SSI
  • interop, VC, Keri
  • DID method consolidation and interop
  • Interop and opportunities to launch SSI to the mainstream
  • To find out more about what other identity colleagues are working on.
  • "How to launch a business. How to find a product market fit. How to evangelize your product and form a team.
  • Schema layers. Decentralized data stores. Data mappings. "
  • interop barriers and adoption challenges, innovative products and business models
  • decentralized identity
  • Credential Exchange Standardization Efforts
  • Interoperability efforts
  • interop, identity hubs/DWN, "Web5", DIDComm
  • Next steps for IIW as leads towards the inevitable future of non-profit.
  • What the recent developments in the W3C standards committee mean for SSI? I am interested to know what the obstacles are for wider spread adoption for these *standards, and the lines of businesses it can open up to incentivize companies to adopt it.
  • SSI
  • standards based authentication
  • Scoped credentials and federated identity
  • next generation credentials


What are the critical questions about user-centric identity and data you hope to discuss with peers at IIW?

  • Right now, what are you doing to build the ethics and/or systems to raise respect for people above profit driven systems. Let's talk about a Technocratic Oath maybe!?
  • User Experience improvement and governance issues
  • Interoperability.
  • How to support and manage non custodial data ownership with social or other self recovery methods
  • How can we secure user identity in web2 and web3
  • Interop of identity wallet and credentials
  • Offline authorization with IoT and LoRa.
  • How can we ensure the rollout of SSI is user-centric and privacy-preserving, and that potential harms are considered and discussed? How much does the end-user need to know about the tech to ensure adoption? Who are the key partners in development and rollout?
  • Verifiable data that isn’t a credential
  • How to combine forces with the federated learning community and not reinvent the wheel in our own worlds (identity vs. machine learning)
  • integrating 'WET' & 'DRY' concepts through layered system thinking & predictive models to enable impactful cyber security/ edge space technology solution management. Engineering to long lasting descision making and real change with consideration of the human experience.
  • Are the UX challenges around SSI orthogonal to the ones faced by self-custody of private keys?
  • How much identity is too much identity
