In this episode we have special guests Maja Vujinovic, Ex CIO of Emerging tech globally for GE Digital and Vinny Lingham, Founder and CEO of Civic.

With the world living through a pandemic, economic uncertainty and political upheaval through the Black Lives Matter movement in the U.S., we discuss how the world is becoming divided and old traditions being highly questioned.

We first talk about vaccinication where Vinny walks us through how vaccination will become an underpinning factor for our digital lives and future digital identities. We explore the opportunities, risks and implications of such a system that should be private and free from government control to protect user data.
Maya with her background in tech and operations shares her experience and the advice and considerations she proposes to governments, leaders and private corporations, particularly around tech ethis. We also discuss the ideas around biohacking and relevant solutions that Maja has been working on.

With the increasing need of digitization in this COVID19 reality, we also discuss how blockchain is increasingly significant as the technology already exists but needs open mindedness, structural change and acceptance.
