Within the foreseeable future the evolution of the web is expected to be far greater than its influence in the past decade. WWW growth exhibit a series of common characteristics.

For the first time in History, more than 1200 local and International leaders of the technological world are coming together in the southern hemisphere.

Why should i attend?

The Trust Factory provides a "practice example" demonstration of decentralised organisational thematics, delivering a "Factory" of diverse professionals cooperatively communicating issues pertaining to emerging WWW interactive systems of Trust.

Whilst WWW systems provide electronic means for Rapid decision making, the Decisions about the Characteristics and Features designed into these systems are decisions made by executives. The Values instituted in our web-platform is changing the nature of our society at a time where we are only at the beginning of the Anthropocene. Decisions made by people producing systems of Trust make the difference between a world impacted by Fake News or means to provide vulnerable people Dignity and the means to make Informed Decisions. Trust Factory connects meaningful shared Experiences with discussion about the Intentional Design (or unintentional consequences) for the future of our Societies. Within the next year, Identity solutions will define the way Digitally Verifiable Claims are to be deployed and made available linking database records in relation to human activity. These systems will continue to reinforce the augmentation of Opportunities made available to Humans for live, safety, health, welfare, education, employment; and the means, to support a meaningful basis for Trust in Relationships with others.

Whilst computing systems are designed to provide the means for Rapid decision making Capabilities, the challenge for all of our Community Leaders is how they may voice their Considerations about the ways in which these systems need to be designed and how Human communities are able to improve organisational frameworks to quickly Adapt and control the technological Influence of this changing world through industry improvements for Rapid decision making. As Governance executives are an essential ingredient to any solution whom retain Responsibilities to engineer outcomes in a Timely manner; Effective collaboration, Cooperation and Communication depends upon the means for community Leadership to contribute with technological Resonance.

In 2017 International Working Groups will be Forging new systems for supporting “Verifiable Claims” interacting with Artificial Intelligence systems built upon systems of Records that can be changed by those who have 'write' Access to the records, whilst being Considerate that in many cases the 'subject' of those records may not Know of its contents or existence. In the next decade, Quantum computing infrastructure will challenge the world's leading Minds to create fundamentally new types of software (algorithms) for those with the Available equipment required to develop Expertise. Increasingly, employment will Contribute towards the international development of our historical ‘log’ of human activity; incorporating statement, that will be used by 3rd parties to make Decisions, whether or not these Records provide an accurate Depiction of a Circumstance, subject or Trend.

What if a record about you or someone you care about is incorrect, incomplete or does not serve your human rights of choice and you don't even know where it is, or that it exists; How can leaders of community get involved in building the W(eb)orld We Want, in service of our society....
