This session will cover how decentralized technologies like IPFS (Interplanetary File System) apply to IIIF collections. We will explore how institutions can use the decentralized web to open up new avenues for patron engagement while, at the same time, reducing IT operational overhead. Matt Zumwalt, from the team creating the IPFS protocol, will give an overview of the growing trend towards "serverless", decentralized, content-addressed approaches to storage, dissemination and processing of digital information. He'll show how these approaches create new ways for Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums to provide discovery, preservation and access services directly on top of the content that patrons create and use, without requiring patrons to submit their data into yet another silo.
