The Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA) hosted the free-to-attend summit, titled ‘Focused on the Future,’ in partnership with FinTech Bermuda.
On why he chose Bermuda to operate his business, Jeremy Allaire said: “To build our international business we needed to find a jurisdiction that understood the breadth of digital assets and the scope of what we want to achieve. Bermuda is way ahead than any other country in this regard. As the adoption of digital currencies becomes mainstream, countries like Bermuda who are participating in the innovation stand to benefit and are helping to create a world where the exchange of value is as efficient, free and open as the exchange of information, knowledge and content is today.” Keynote speaker Terence Mills, CEO of Al.io and a member of the Forbes Technology Council contributing on the topic of artificial intelligence (AI), spoke to a packed room about the future of work, and the challenges and potential of integrating AI into workflows. He gave an engaging presentation on using technology to drive efficiencies with the U.S. healthcare system as an example case.Other panels highlighted relevant themes such as the increasing demand from customers for connectivity in hospitality, remote working as a future business model in place of an office and thinking inclusively when it comes to building technological infrastructure. It was clear based on discussions throughout the day that realising the grand promise of innovation and new technology requires a collaborative effort and support from both the public and private sectors.
