Welcome to Sibos 2018 in Sydney! Day one of the conference has begun, and I hope you’re booking plans to meet with IBM at the conference. Each day, I will update and revise this blog several times with news, announcements, videos, and blogs live from the floor at Sibos. Return often and let it serve as your “Everything IBM guide at Sibos.” If you want to help spread the word, download the images in this post with a right-click and save-image-as move, and you have ready made images to share on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and more.
As the pace of change accelerates across the financial ecosystem, IBM has both the platforms and people to help you address the complexities of today’s competitive landscape. Whether payments, regulatory compliance, automation, blockchain, addressing cyber or moving to cloud, bring us your toughest challenges and let’s solve tomorrow together.
Here’s a quick overview of ways to engage with IBM at Sibos this year:
Paolo Sironi, IBM FinTech Thought Leader, report live conversations from the ground
Four Innotribe SenseMaker sessions with experts from IBM Research
Jesse Lund’s Reddit AMA on blockchain and cryptocurrencies with Bitcoin Magazine
IBM will have two booth areas at Sibos this year
IBM booth #F22 in the main exhibit on Level 1
IBM stand #DZ63 in the Discover Zone on Level 4
IBM Innotribe sessions at Sibos
For the 2018 Sensemaker series, Innotribe has partnered with IBM Research to bring you the future – right from people who are making it. We want to examine what capabilities nascent technology from today will enable by the year 2030. Each day will be framed by a statement or question, and we will have TED-talk like 20 minute presentations.
Decentralization as a new form of trust
Looking at How DLT could enable the decentralization of data, and the applications and impacts of this. Exploring the role of regulated financial institutions and trusted third parties in an era when trust is in the network.
In the next 5-10 Years quantum superiority will be achieved, this means that current encryption methods will be rendered insecure, and will need to be updated. Looking beyond this paradigm what are the practical applications of quantum computing?
AI Will be embedded in every aspect of life, with Neural Networks making decisions at breathtaking speed. What does the future beyond automation hold for the industry and society at large, and how can we ensure that our reach does not exceed our grasp.
Looking back to the present day from 12 years out, what do we need to put in place now, to ensure that the future state is not one of pens, papers and dumb devices. Can we take the paradigm of Quantum Superiority as an opportunity to reset this and build a secure future, and what principles around data privacy, and sustainability do we need to explore.
Panelists include Jesse Lund, Global VP, IBM Blockchain

Compared to traditional data centers, I believe that cloud computing has several characteristics that make it an attractive platform for risk management. First of all, the compute requirements for risk management can vary over time. Cloud provides the ability to scale up resources during peak periods and scale them back down when they are not […]
