The Future of Digital Identity

Thursday 11th October 2018

A major new project kicks off with new point of view and workshops

The Future of Digital Identity

Our interconnected digital world has started to make a mockery of traditional forms of identification. Being asked to produce ‘two forms of ID; at least one from each of the two following lists’ already seems hopelessly anachronistic in a world of automated password-managers, RFID-driven payments systems, and bio-metric authenticators on our mobile phones. The idea of having a single digital identity (Digital ID) that can replace the need to hold a plethora of cards and documents, from your passport and driving license to your library card and even your CV, is not only one whose time has come, it is one that is all but presumed to exist already. Although it doesn’t quite yet. 

This new initial perspective is intended to provide a provocation for thinking and deeper discussion about the impending implementation, and future, of Digital Identity and its role and value in society. In addition, this is a PPT summary of the key insights that is being used as stimulus in discussions. 

We are also undertaking a set of 5 expert workshops across 4 continents in Q4 2018 (London, Singapore, Sydney, San Francisco and Brussels). If you are interested in joining, we would welcome your feedback and contribution to help build a richer view. Do let us know.
