  7. 7. NEW PLATFORMS WILL FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS David Walker CEO & Co-founder, Triplemint www.cbinsights.com 7Source: Bloomberg “I think we’ll see more of the actual real estate transaction become more platform-based, as email is still the default technology today, and that creates significant inefficiencies for the consumer.”
  8. 8. BLOCKCHAIN: ENABLING THE FUTURE OF REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS www.cbinsights.com 8 Expediting the process: By utilizing a blockchain distributed database to prove authenticity, ownership can be transferred immediately without time spent on third- party verification. Reducing Fraud: “Digital ownership certificates” in blockchain could effectively eliminate forged ownership documents and false listings. Increasing transparency: Houses could be assigned digital identities with a chain of ownership and a list of repair and renovation projects.

  29. 29. BINGOBOX USES MUCH OF THE SAME TECH AS AMAZON, BUT FOR DIFFERENT PURPOSES While customers must scan items and pay at a counter, cameras and sensor check to make sure all items leaving the store have been paid for, and cameras throughout the store use facial recognition to verify that users are registered with BingoBox and authorized to be in the store. www.cbinsights.com 29
  30. 30.

Strict procedures: Biohazard disposal requires thoroughly following procedures to sort and process different types of waste. Time sensitivity: The Journal of American Medical Association recently published an article stating that time to defibrillation is the most important factor for increasing survival in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest Regulatory, logistical, and administrative needs of medical specimen and equipment make transporting difficult.
  43. 43. MEDICAL TREATMENT IN ISOLATED REGIONS IS DIFFICULT TO ACCESS Keller Rinaudo Founder, CEO, Zipline www.cbinsights.com 43Source: The Verge "When you look at rural or isolated communities, particularly Native American populations, populations that live on islands, you have serious health outcome inequalities. There’s a linear relationship between how far away you live from a city and your expected lifespan. So our hope is that this type of technology can solve those kinds of inequalities."

  54. 54. TRANSPARENCY OF THE BLOCKCHAIN USEFUL FOR SUPPLY CHAIN CONTEXT Michael Casey Senior Advisor, Blockchain Research at MIT Media Lab www.cbinsights.com 54Source: Harvard Business Review “A fundamental advantage of this distributed system… is that it resolves problems of disclosure and accountability between individuals and institutions whose interests aren’t necessarily aligned. Mutually important data can be updated in real time, removing the need for laborious, error-prone reconciliation with each other’s internal records. It gives each member of the network far greater and timelier visibility of the total activity.”
