Sessions for Ron Galloway
The Disruptive Potential of the Blockchain in the Restaurant Industry
Ron will dig into the world of the blockchain, the distributed ledger technology that is rapidly changing many industries. After taking a look at its history and how to easily understand it, Ron will explore how blockchain is already affecting other businesses such as finance and healthcare, sharing specific test cases that bear striking similarity to processes within the restaurant industry. This will lead to a discussion of how different aspects of blockchain technology will impact restaurants. For instance, how will smart contracts affect the supply chain? How can automated rules within these smart contracts reduce management workload and increase efficiency? How does blockchain shared ledger technology allow all parties in foodservice transactions to be instantaneously aware of all the processes and statuses in a transaction? How can this technology be used to solve certain restaurant specific problems such as wage inflation? How could a private blockchain interact with machine learning to help you better serve your customers? This session will illustrate the Black Swan potential that this new technology will have on different industries worldwide, but specifically the massive impact it may have on the restaurant industry.
