Self-Sovereign Identity and the MyData model from Finland – Antti ‘Jogi’ Poikola – Webinar 3

SSI & MyData

Antti ‘Jogi’ Poikola, Researcher at Aalto University and Sovrin Foundation Trustee, features in our third Webinar “SSI & MyData” by explaining how MyData is both an alternative vision and guiding technical principles for how we, as individuals, can have more control over the data trails we leave behind us in our everyday actions.

The core idea of MyData is that we, you and I, should have an easy way to see where data about us goes, specify who can use it, and alter these decisions over time. Jogi explains how this pieces fit together and how data is merging into the SSI space.

MyData Global Network is a lightweight organisation to give structure and empower the MyData movement that is growing from the international meetups and conferences and other interactions. The founding members are ambassadors for the movement and the action takes place in the Local Hubs around the world.
