Thursday, September 17, 2020, 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM EDT
As any visitor to Boston knows, the downtown Boston street-map is a random mish-mash of streets dating to the horse trails and cow paths of the 1600s. With digital currency, CBDC, etc. rather than simply ‘paving the cowpaths’, how should we be architecting financial regulation today for 20 years from now when everything is on blockchain rails? The combination of Blockchain, AI, IoT, ML, etc. will profoundly impact how financial oversight is done by governments, especially relative to safety and soundness, while adequately protecting for confidentiality, reducing the cost of oversight, and flagging systemic risks. But what are the questions we should be asking NOW to drive the architecture of tomorrow?
