The metaverse is the future of the digital world and our technical keynote will cover how Microsoft are addressing three of the most pressing considerations.

Join Pouneh Kaufman, Group Product Manager and Michelle Maislen, Senior Program Manager as they showcase the Microsoft’s Metaverse’s innovative persistent spaces which open up a whole new class of digital service and business tooling which create significant business growth opportunities. From product visualisation to field hospital operations, the Metaverse will drive future online services.

Unlike many previous trends in the IT industry, safety, security, and privacy are at the very forefront of Microsoft’s efforts with Metaverse, rather than bolted on after the fact. With the increased risks comes a responsibility to mitigate them early. Michelle and Pouneh will discuss how Microsoft is implementing tools and processes to create an ethical and safe Metaverse for the long haul.

E-governance was a strategic choice for Estonia. A strategy delivered! Implementing no hassle governance with modern cloud infrastructure enabled a safe e-services ecosystem which improves the well-being of citizens, increases the competitiveness of the state, and eliminates bureaucracy.

Citizens can select e-solutions from a range of public services and 99% of public services are now available as e-services. Examples include Digital ID, e-Tax, e-Residency, e-Health and i-Voting.

Join Lauri Haav, Managing Director of e-Residency, as he describes the why and how of e-governance, the human challenges involved, and how cloud technologies such as M2M communications and KSI Blockchain enabled the foundations of the service.
