Increasingly the issue of trust takes centerstage when we talk about digitization. Who can we trust with our data and why? What will our data be used for? These questions lack easy answers, yet they become ever more relevant. Especially since ever more areas of our professional and private lives are being digitized.
Questions of access, identity verification and appropriate use abound. Which technologies and standards are trustworthy? Do we follow the hype or stick to the tried and true? This event aims to give insights into current security challenges and presents innovative solutions for wide-ranging problems. Among the topics are blockchain in security, securing medical data in transmission, managing security risk by privileged actors as well as innovative ideas for comfortable and secure end-user-login.

The current discussion about digitalization is dominated by new technologies and services while the enabling advancements in software development are far less visible. The rapidity of change contains challenges as well as opportunities for both software developers and users. This event on June 26 at launchlabs in Basel aims to give insights into both perspectives. We will discuss current and future trends from different perspectives as well as their effects on software development and the speed with which new solutions can be brought to market.

Digital visualization techniques such as virtual or augmented reality have experienced a new boost in recent years. Technological innovations are driving this development and allow for a wide range of new applications. These range from entertainment and knowledge or culture transfer to marketing and communication, through to new planning and maintenance tools. Exciting virtual reality projects have emerged in the Basel region, too. Some of these will be presented at our next BaselArea.swiss Webilea Event and can be experienced up close.
When: Wednesday, 22 November 2017 - 17:00
Where: Halle 7, Gundeldingerfeld, Dornacherstrasse 192, 4053 Basel
The event centers around the exchange of knowledge. After introductory presentations, participants will be given the opportunity to engage directly with the projects in short discussion grounds. The subsequent panel discussion will deal with which development potentials exist for the Basel region and how these can be promoted.

The first BaselHack will take place on the weekend of 28 and 29 October 2017. The event is being sponsored by Baloise, Adobe, Bluesky, FHNW, Actemium, Smart Regio Basel and BaselArea.swiss as well as other companies and public institutions in the region.
BaselHack is a platform for visionaries, creatives, technology enthusiasts, UX/UI hackers, code writers, software developers and IT veterans – in short, for everyone who enjoys collaborating on the development of new ideas and solutions. The aim of the hackathon is to demonstrate the region's digital competence and innovative prowess while at the same time providing a platform that encourages networking amongst the participants. The main priority of the communal problem-solving event, however, is to have fun with digital technologies. In two days, teams develop working prototypes and present them to a jury.
When: Saturday 28 October, 09:00 to Sunday 29 October, 19:00
Where: FHNW Academy of Art and Design, Aula, 4142 Münchenstein
All kinds of ideas are welcome at the hackathon. Participants who bring along their own ideas can pitch them at the beginning of the hackathon to attract a suitable development team. There will also be real-life cases from companies and startups. Teams who develop successful prototypes will have an opportunity to continue their development. The best projects will receive attractive prizes.

The event kicks off on Saturday 28 October, 2017 at 9am. After a short welcome address, pitching begins. As soon as all the teams have been formed, they start coding. There are no official activities from now until the prototypes are presented in the late afternoon on Sunday, but there will be plenty of support available for the teams from the many coaches on site.
In order to reach the productive phase as quickly as possible, a preliminary informal get-together will be held a week before the hackathon, on Friday, 20 October. This will allow participants to get to know each other in advance and to obtain information about the data and software that will be available at the hackathon. This information will also be made available online. If ideas are presented that are not based on existing data, the data should be made available at the BaselHack weekend.
On your marks, get set, go
The final date for entry to the hackathon is 8 October.
Participation will be limited to 100 people. Anyone can take part. Minors will only be allowed entry if accompanied by a parent who has also registered. Team participation is possible, although not a requirement, as teams will be formed on site. Every person in a team must register individually.

Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon and the likes are ruling the world (at least the digital partof it). A closer look on the screen of our smartphones reveals a somehow different picture: Where do you buy your train ticket, look up the weather forecast or find the next best party? Right. All business is local and this is even more true since concerns about the concentration of data (and power) within few global players rise.
At our next webilea event you will find out more about why there is a reasonable chance that the next wave of digitization will be driven by local heroes and hear from entrepreneurs how they want to make their business case strive.

Implementing new digital business models is a complex venture on uncertain grounds, for local companies and multinationals alike. Philipp Bärfuss, the former CTO of Magnolia and founder of «woowai» and his business partner Christian Baechler, a digital marketeer and storyteller, will show why digital business ideas tend to fail and how proven methods can maximize the chances of success.
Jonas Schwarz will talk about his new venture, mAsk, a free app, which allows users to ask questions and receive answers from verified users. The startup capitalizes on mechanisms and the advantage of human swarm intelligence to allow people to ask and respond to questions anonymously.
Fabrizio Fracassi will present his participatory media and online networking application, Fuel, and tell us what it can do for education and personal training - as well as for fun.
Isn't it challenging to meet the most relevant people in such conferences? Maxime Vitrey will present you the Papott solution which will unleash human interactions in events and anywhere else.
