Legal Self-Sovereign Identity (LSSI) Specialist
Guy Huntingdon, Huntingdon Ventures
Guy Huntington is a veteran identity architect, program and project manager who’s lead as well as rescued many large identity projects with many of them involving identity federation. His past clients include Boeing, Capital One, Kaiser Permanente, WestJet, Government of Alberta’s Digital Citizen Identity and Authentication Program and Alberta Blue Cross. As one of his past clients said “He is a great find, because he is able to do high quality strategic work, but is also well-versed in project management and technical details, so he can traverse easily from wide to deep. With Guy, you get skills that would typically be encompassed in a small team of people.”
Guy’s written more than 30 papers on rethinking the identity paradigm due to the incoming technological tsunami composed of AI, AR, VR, robotics (both virtual and physical), genetic engineering, nanotechnology and wireless. His premise is it requires a complete rethink of legal physical and digital identities for both humans and bots, globally.
Thus, he’s co-written two proposals with Michael Kleeman (cofounder of many different telcos around the planet) for:
- Creating a legal self-sovereign identity (LSSI) both physically and digitally for humans
- New global legal registration system for AI systems/bots locally managed
He lives in West Vancouver, BC, Canada.
