Profiles in Risk – E129: Design Thinking For Blockchain Solutions with Thomas Jennings of AAIS

In this episode of Profiles in Risk, I spoke with Thomas Jennings, Director of Business Development at AAIS, on his workshop presentation at the Silicon Valley Insurance Accelerator conference on January 29th in Palo Alto. We discussed blockchain (of course) but how this technology may facilitate the sharing of data between parties who may have trust concerns. We discussed how AAIS used design thinking in contemplating their solution for allowing AAIS member companies and the NAIC to share data. We also got starry-eyed about how this technology may transform how we subtly communicate and share information with one another. The title of Thomas’ workshop is:

Design Thinking for Blockchain Enabled Products & Business Models
Hands-on exec workshop that guides participants through definition, development & validation of a Blockchain enabled application using design thinking and what is required to launch a first POC.
