Blockchain: an overview

Victoria Lemieux is an associate professor of Archival Science at the School of Library, Archival and Information Studies, University of British Columbia. Her current research focuses on risk in Blockchain recordkeeping systems, and how these risks impact transparency, financial stability, public accountability and human rights. She has received a number of awards for her professional work and research, including two awards specific to Blockchain research (the 2018 Britt Literary Award and 2016 Emerald Literati Award), an award for outstanding contributions to the field of records management (the 2015 Emmett Leahy Award) and an award for innovation (the 2015 World Bank Big Data Innovation Award).

Land Transaction Record Keeping in Brazil and British Columbia

Alysha Joo and Danielle Batista are members of Blockchain@UBC, a University of British Columbia research group focused on blockchain technology. Their research assesses blockchain trustworthiness from the lens of traditional archival principles, as well as exploring the application of Blockchain technology to land registration and personalized medicine.

Data Sovereignty for Indigenous Sovereignty

Lee White is the Firekeeper for ChinookX, an incubator for startup companies operating at the intersection of innovative Indigenous technologies and social change. ChinookX has breathed life into Chinook Foundation, Sovereign Data Services, as well as the blockchain-based Chinook Exchange, which provides a platform for a system of Indigenous sovereignty. Lee's capacity to empower social change is rooted in his experience working for Nelson Mandela’s Reconstruction and Development Programme, as well as his work in Canada helping communities collaboratively create solutions for complex challenges.

Reimagining Business Registries with Blockchain

John Jordan is an experienced product executive and technology strategist who has over 25 years of experience in both the private and public sectors. His mantra is “Always be Shipping”.

In 2013, he received the Canadian Public Sector Award for Excellence in the Innovation category. John holds a Master’s degree in Applied Science, Management of Technology from the University of Waterloo and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Queen’s University at Kingston.

Health Record Keeping: Using blockchain technology to enable user consent and control
