In our current smartphone era, technology can and should play a role in keeping us safe from Covid-19 in the workplace and the world outside our homes. Indeed, other countries around the world are already widely using mobile technologies to combat Covid.
Yet, In America the standard methods of disease mitigation and containment rely upon peoples’ memories, perceptions of distance, and willingness to engage in awkward and uncomfortable behaviors for the public good.
In this webinar, we’ll focus on the benefits and potential risks of two advanced technologies, the spatial web and blockchain. They enable augmentation of existing approaches to mitigating and containing Covid, as well as entirely new kinds of measures that can increase workplace safety and provide important Covid spread updates we emerge from sheltering in place.
However, authorities and the general public are leery of new technologies due mostly to justifiable concerns about privacy. We will examine how privacy can be preserved rather than threatened by the spatial web and blockchain and invite audience participation in this important topic.
