Panel & Challenge Announcement
When Commerce Gets Conversational and Contextual

Using voice to initiate commerce is old as humans have been talking to cashiers in stores. But, today, instead of talking to a person, consumers talk to an app that is unlocking a whole new realm of commerce opportunities and possibilities – or initiate a commerce-related action inside of an entirely new ecosystem like messaging – at the same time it introduces a whole new set of gatekeepers and enablers. How will voice and emerging ecosystems like messaging change how commerce is conducted – and who stands to gain the most?  Featuring Patrick Gauthier, Vice President, External Payments at Amazon and Jeff Blankenburg, Alexa Evangelist at Amazon

21st Century Transactors – Thriving Above the Cloud

Neither the World Wide Web nor its tenuous “clouds” are capable of providing the new levels of user identity, authentication and messaging security necessary to obliterate 21st century cybercrime. As the mountain of breached information systems and bank accounts grows ever higher, we cannot expect technology that was never originally designed to be secure to solve the problem; it IS the problem. What design principles must underpin the next generation electronic payments infrastructure? How will it interface with dedicated card networks for POS and B2B? How will it deliver the required security, privacy, legal finality, governance and regulatory compliance for “ubiquitous” real-time payments?
