Topics and use cases

The future of public administration

The future of the public administration will surely be dominated by an ever increasing use of technology. In this section we will be discussing the following details:

  • What are the ideas of the European Union for the use of AI and Blockchain in the upcoming decades?
  • How will an AI driven public sector look like?
  • What are the ethical implications of this digitalization?
  • Who are the leading public institutions in this field and

Economic analysis

Specifically in the economic realm with huge data sets, the next wave of digitization will be able to offer drastic effieciency gains.

  • What are use cases in fraud detection and audits?
  • How do you define and combat the issues of an automation in the economic sector?


Kenji Hiramoto
Chief Strategist, Government of Japan


Pratheep Ponraj
AI expert, World Bank Group (TBC)

Process Optimization

The potential for process optimization when digitizing data with the help of AI and Blockchain technologies is immense. In a time of increasing complexity on one side and dwindling budget and personnel on the other side, automization can improve the efficiency drastically:

  • What are areas where process optimization is possible?
  • How can Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Natural Language processing (NLP) help in that endeavour?


Kenji Hiramoto
Chief Strategist, Government of Japan


Dr. Alaa Moussawi
Chief Data Scientist, New York City Council (TBC)

Intergovernmental cooperation

As projects are getting more complex and need to involve numerous agencies and organizations simultaneously, governance and project-management is getting increasingly important:

  • What are the challenges in cross-agency project management?
  • Who needs to be involved and and how can the challenges be overcome?


Dr. Otto C. Frommelt
Director, National Road Office at the Principality of Liechtenstein


Emmanuelle Ganne
Senior Analyst, World Trade Organization (TBC)

Data quality and security

At the heart of the functioning of new digital technologies lies data, or more specifically the quality of the data. Without a good organization and quality of data, both AI and Blockchain have a hard time living up to the promise:

  • What are the preconditions in terms of data quality?
  • Which kind of solutions can AI and Blockchain provide to make data more secure?


Papuna Ugrekhelidze
Chairman, National Agency of Public Registry, Georgia

E-Government

With AI and Blockchain, new types of customer-centric e-government services are possible:

  • How will e-government look in the future?
  • What are current possibilities to offer user friendly governmental services?


Marten Kaevats
National Digital Advisor, Government Office of Estonia


Sindre Wimberger
Service Designer, City of Vienna

Energy efficiency

The climate is changing rapidly for the worse and so every new technology always has to be reflected upon in that light. Will AI and Blockchain help reduce emissions or usher in an even more polluted future?

  • What is the ecological impact of these technologies?
  • Are there use cases that try to address energy efficiency?
  • How can the energy hungry mining process in the Blockchain technology be enhanced?


Tadej Gabrijel
e-Government expert, Ministry of Public Administration of the Republic of Slovenia

Technology and privacy

Privacy is one of the hot topics of today. Speficically AI and Blockchain raise new questions concerning privacy, but can also be a helping hand towards achieving greater personal privacy:

  • What are the legal implications concerning privacy?
  • How can high standards in privacy be achieved?

  • In the panel discussion on day 1, these topics will be discussed by our great speakers.

    Chief Data Scientist, New York City Council (TBC)

Terminology and overview

You are unclear about certain technological aspects with AI and Blockchain? This is the right place for you:

  • What are some of the most fundamental terminologies?
  • What are the benefits and what are the current limitations?
  • Which use cases are already live?


Prof. Dr. Alexiei Dingli
Head of, University of Malta and Malta.Ai Task-Force


Virginia Cram-Martos
Project Lead for a Blockchain project, United Nations Centre for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business

Technology for the people

How can we make sure that technology is overcoming biases and not creating new ones? How can we avert a situation where incomprehensible algorithms determin large parts of the life of citizens? What are legal and ethical boundaries that the global society should define?


In the panel discussion on day 2, these topics will be discussed by our great speakers.

The summit offers two tracks: Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence. The choice is yours. Every segment will highlight speakers detailing their latest efforts with these trending technologies. Each presentation will be around 45 minutes to allow both depth and a multitude of topics. 

The program will be updated regularly.
