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

  • The art of managing intention through relationship choices with connected services and systems and how that engages our Human Operating System (HumanOS).The Trust over IP Stacks, the controversy surrounding the W3C Verifiable Credentials Working Group's formation, Self-Sovereign Identity, and the T3 Innovation Network's interoperable learning records (LERs).
  • Interoperability
  • Interop.
  • How to give control to the user over government issued credentials.
  • The critical subjects to me right now are the interoperability place in the ecosystem and how to build it and how to market the benefits of SSI in a closed web era.
  • I am most curious if we can move beyond 'personal identity' to also think about social circles as a commons. In other words, a situation in which their is more autonomy and agency within our social circles, including policies for data sharing and privacy, and most importantly perhaps, self-governance of such social circles.
  • What political and organisational methods -- cross-industrial and trans-national -- are required to establish SSI as a universal service? What are the relevant historical precedents for the adoption of a new, universal service? What are the main impediments to SSI becoming a universal service?
  • How we can have existing identity systems and emerging ones work seamlessly together

"How can we realize user-centric identity without the necessary use of blockchain?

  • What is the smart way of combining centralized and decentralized identities?"
  • Can we & users manage distributed or evolving reputation, determined by the network and growing organically? What are today's tools that help with public & private verified credentials?
  • Interoperability
  • market fit, anchoring in real use cases, commitment to standards and interop vs siloing, what is hiding behind "governance"
  • "What are the key threats and risks to the progress of user-centric identity? How can decentralized identity interoperate with centralized systems ?"
