Gresham College: Prof. Martyn Thomas, CBE – Living In A Cyber Enabled World – Will Bitcoin and Blockchain Change The Way We Live and Work?


Living In A Cyber Enabled World was the title for a series of lectures Prof. Thomas gave at Gresham College.

About this lecture

The block chain is the Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) that underlies the successful Bitcoin cybercurrency. 

What is it, how does it work, and why does a Government report say that DLTs have the potential to be radically disruptive to financial services, healthcare, real estate, public services and much more?


About this lecture series

An exploration of the state of software today, how we got to where we are, and what we shall need to do to shore up the foundations of a digital society that is increasingly built on sand. The lectures are designed to inform, to entertain, and to stimulate balanced discussions that lead to effective actions. It is hoped that these lectures may play a role in accelerating the transition of the craft of software development into a mature engineering profession.
