Phil Williams from Centrality will be presenting on ‘Toward an Open Mobility Ecosystem’.

Mobility is in the midst of its largest disruption since the invention of the car. Electric powertrains, autonomous driving and entirely new transport modes are reshaping the way people move. Nowhere is this more evident than in cities, which are the new battlegrounds between insurgent startups and slow moving governments. The focus on licensing and use of public space has defined them as adversaries. A new focus is needed on digital enablement, which can create an open ecosystem where companies innovate, and cities play a guiding role for the benefit of all their citizens.

Phil Williams is a technology strategist at Centrality, one of the world’s leading blockchain venture studios. Phil leads Centrality’s open MaaS initative, creating a mobility ecosystem based on blockchain. In addition to mobility, Phil holds wide-ranging technology expertise in the fields of finance, blockchain and healthcare.
