On March 9, 2021 the Diginomics Research Group of the University of Bremen hosts Tobias Kölbel, Researcher (PhD) Economy of Things at Bosch. Tobias Kölbel will speak about

„Decentralized Economy of Things – Nucleus for Tomorrows Cross-Company Collaboration?“

Like many companies, Bosch is currently undergoing a transformation through digitalisation and is examining the use of new digital technologies. The focus is particularly on cross-company collaboration, which is becoming increasingly important. Data-based platforms are essential for a successful transformation. The strategic research project Economy of Things by Bosch Research deals with the negative implications of centralised platforms and shows decentralised approaches to solutions. The goal: A fair and open digital economy with cooperating market participants instead of dominant platform monopolists.

In his talk, Tobias Kölbel introduces the research field of the Economy of Things and deals with the technological capability of decentralised systems to strengthen the cooperative behavior of companies. He shows the potential of self-sovereign identity concepts for the identity management of tomorrow. Using the example of a manufacturing marketplace, he also outlines the extent to which decentralised technologies such as distributed ledger, blockchain, confidential computing or multi-party computation could be used for fair platforms.
