Picos and the self-sovereign internet.

Phil Windley co-invented Picos (persistent compute objects) and discusses how they could make everything on Earth, including people, "smart" even without onboard electronics. He joins hosts Doc Searls and Shawn Powers to talk about a new self-sovereign layer for the Internet. This is built on SSI (self-sovereign internet) - a whole new way to make personal identity work both online and off, potentially without logins and passwords. Windley explains Distributed Identifiers and also shares how Hyperledger Aries relates.
