We cover everything that relates to the Internet of Things. If it's connected, we want to hear about it. We are fascinated by the impending "Machine Economy", where machines will become smarter, more intelligent, and eventually fully autonomous. The Internet is transforming from a Social Web to a Machine Web, that we like to call Web 3.0 and it is defined by the convergence of three primary components; IoT, AI & DLT.
We promote conferences, workshops, hardware hackathons, and meetups that relate to IoT, AI, and DLT (Blockchain, DAGs, Hashgraph, Hyperledger, and Cryptocurrency). We think the impending Machine Economy, powered by a global network of autonomous machines, will transform the way we live and work - for the better.
A perfect storm of innovation is finally making the Machine Economy aka "Web 3.0" a reality. Our focus is data decentralisation and machine automation. We help our clients understand and leverage the latest innovations that include Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT).

IBM has launched its blockchain offering in an Australian data centre and has launched a pilot programme demonstrating the use of blockchain technology in tracking sustainable groundwater usage. The programmes are two facets in the burgeoning use of distributed ledger systems, best known as the basis for Bitcoin and other virtual currencies, but increasingly popular in areas from financial services to supply chain management.
Blockchain startup Citizens Reserve has partnered with Smartrac, a JP Morgan-owned internet of things platform, to help firms track and trace physical goods in the supply chain using radio-frequency identification.
It seems that finally world’s most scalable blockchain protocol dubbed as Devv has been created which is able to perform approximately eight million transactions per second. A start-up firm Devvio is claimed to have developed this amazing protocol that is highly efficient and is addressing all the major challenges faced by the blockchain industry at the moment. The global financial business will reach new standards if this claim turns out to be true. The first look of Devv was unveiled and demonstrated at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas lately.
The use of blockchain technology to help secure internet of things data, services and devices doubled last year, according to a recent survey by digital security firm Gemalto. In a report published Tuesday, the firm said blockchain adoption in the IoT sector grew from 9 percent to 19 percent in 2018, even though the industry is still awaiting regulation around the tech. Gemalto surveyed 950 tech and business professionals globally for the study, also finding that 23 percent of respondents believe that blockchain tech would be an “ideal” solution to use for securing IoT devices. Further, 91 percent of companies that do not currently use the technology are likely to consider it in the future.
On Friday 30th November I attended the VCT and EIS Investor Forum in London. The event enabled private investors to meet fund managers in person and learn how different VCT and EIS funds compare. The event featured an expo, cinema, exhibition space, and seminar room where talks and panel debates took place throughout the day. Attendees were given the opportunity to gain industry insights and understand what is going on more generally across the entire small-cap equity market landscape.
Rolls-Royce has publicly demonstrated what it calls the “world’s first fully autonomous ferry” on a trip between Parainen and Nauvo in Finland. The British company entered a research partnership with Finnish state-owned Finferries back in May, revealing plans to “optimize ship safety and efficiency” through developing and demonstrating autonomous ferry technologies.
Ernst & Young today announced the launch of EY Ops Chain Public Edition prototype, the world’s first implementation of zero-knowledge proof technology on the public Ethereum blockchain. This technology is a first that will allow companies to privately and securely create and sell product and service tokens on a public blockchain with private access to their transaction records. EY Ops Chain PE uses ZKP technology to enable private token transfers without breaking the consensus algorithm.
Autonomous trucks made by Volvo will soon be hauling stone out of a Norwegian limestone mine, the car firm has announced. What it’ll deliver: Six autonomous trucks will transport limestone the five-kilometer (three-mile) route through tunnels between a mine owned by local firm Brønnøy Kalk AS and a processing facility at a nearby port.
The satellite operation wing of South Korea’s largest telecommunications company, KT Corporation is planning to explore blockchain technology. They have already set up a group dedicated to finding use cases for emerging technologies like AI, cybersecurity IoT, and Distributed Ledger Technologies.
Hopefully by now, you are familiar with Outlier Ventures and our investments. As a venture platform with finite resources to fulfill intensive advisory work, we have so far chosen to focus on areas we believe to be most impactful and profitable: the intersections of deep technologies like AI, IoT and the Next Gen Data, enabled by tokenized and open source distributed ledger technologies.
As we arrive back in the UK following a hugely successful IoT Solutions World Congress event in Barcelona, I wanted to take a few minutes to reflect on the show but also pass on my thoughts on what has been a pretty busy first 3 months for me at IOTech. One of my first roles since joining IOTech as a Solutions Architect was to help put together the EdgeX Foundry Community Demonstrator in time for its first scheduled appearance at the Barcelona event.
The final day of the Open Source Summit & ELC + OpenIoT Summit Europe will take place in Edinburgh, UK tomorrow. If you can’t make it you can tune into the free livestream to catch all of the keynotes live, but you will need to visit their website and register to gain access.The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organisation enabling mass innovation through open source, announced the addition of 33 Silver members and 11 Associate members in the month of September.
Rolls-Royce today announced that it would use Intel chips as it develops a global system for autonomous ships that carry cargo on the high seas. The partnership follows the announcement last year of an ambitious timetable to have fully autonomous shipping fleets deployed by 2025. While based in the U.K., Rolls-Royce is developing the shipping technology in R&D centers located in Finland and Norway.
Today’s web is pretty much controlled by an oligopoly of tech giants that I will refer to as “GAFAM”. They have grown incredibly rich by hoovering up personal data belonging to billions of people and using it to develop incredibly addictive products. This practice is, in most cases, perfectly legal as it is done with the consent of their users.
Montford's Rule is a new one for our times… “Every time there is a step change in technology it’s heralded as a revolution - now it's real,” he alleges. And Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the key. We are now no longer just looking at the loss of labour to technology that the evanescence of tasks that have for centuries required a high degree of intellect and evaluation. There’s a sense of urgency highlighted by the publication last month of arguably the U.K.'s most focused new industrial strategy to be announced in the past two and a half decades.
ICOs are funding the creation of a new decentralised web (PART I) Once upon a time there was a substance called ether, also known as quintessence, that delighted and baffled medieval scientists for centuries. They postulated that it was a medium used by light to travel through the vacuum of space. It was also thought to be responsible for all kinds of other complex scientific phenomena. At the end of the 19th century, the scientific community collectively disavowed the notion, and concluded that it never existed. Ironic then that ether should, well, disappear into the ether.
After Money: What Happens Next? As technology becomes ever more fundamental to citizens, societies and economies, Simon Montford, the founder of WEB3//IOT visited the After Money money symposium looking at issues from identity and privacy to decentralisation, autonomy and democracy itself.
