Blockchain, the Emerging Platform for Manufacturing 4.0
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/blockchain-the-emerging-platform-for-manufacturing-4-0/
Jan 29, 2018 - This research paper explains how distributed ledgers will serve as open platforms for the fourth industrial revolution, enabling the integration of additive manufacturing, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, and big data analytics across supply chains, from design and sourcing to delivery and usage. It illustrates the concepts of smart products, smart factories, digital end-to-end engineering, and mass customization through use cases.
Certifying Copyright in Canada on the Blockchain
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/certifying-copyright-in-canada-on-the-blockchain/
Mar 20, 2019 - This project explores how the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) might leverage blockchain technology to add value to copyright registration at the national level. It describes early proofs of concepts—such as British Columbia business registry—and concludes with a potential course for the future of copyright registration. Ce projet explore comment l'Office de la propriété intellectuelle du Canada (OPIC) pourrait tirer parti de la technologie de la blockchain pour ajouter de la valeur à l'enregistrement du droit d'auteur au niveau national. Il décrit les premières preuves de concepts - comme le registre des entreprises ...
Reclaiming Medication on the Blockchain
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/reclaiming-medication-remedichain/
Mar 31, 2020 - The RemediChain project has emerged as a blockchain-based national database that collects drug waste data and supports the redistribution of safe, unused drugs and the safe destruction of expired or spoiled medication. The platform—a hybrid of Enterprise Ethereum incorporating Hyperledger Besu client and Istanbul Byzantine fault tolerant 2.0 with a proof-of-authority consensus mechanism—checks the quality of donations and tracks their provenance from source to destination, either to patients or to government-approved incinerators. This research explores the opportunities and implementation challenges of such a solution for stakeholders.
Autonomous Vehicles and Blockchain
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/autonomous-vehicles-and-blockchain/
Aug 31, 2019 - This project explores how blockchain technology will optimize the deployment of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs), including those with electric vertical takeoff and landing capabilities. It looks at the Mobile Open Blockchain Initiative, which involves 80 percent of world’s auto manufacturers and leading tech firms. It covers such implementation challenges as blockchain latency and scalability, communications network latency, device security, and regulation. Finally, it raises concerns about data privacy on immutable distributed ledgers as well as the legal liabilities of CAV ownership and usage.
Patterns from the Past
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/patterns-from-the-past/
Aug 30, 2019 - This is the first half of Trust(less): How Blockchain Will Help Us Navigate the Post-Trust World. It establishes the context for distrust in technology. We might assume that our current challenges with blockchain innovations are unique. But every generation of inventive entrepreneurs has faced push-back from a species that doesn’t easily embrace change. After reviewing the history of initially terrifying inventions—from electricity and elevators to artificial intelligence and Airbnb—the author distills the lessons relevant to the building consumer trust needed for broad consumer adoption of blockchain technologies.
Ride-Sharing on the Blockchain
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/ride-sharing-on-the-blockchain/
Feb 11, 2019 - This case study outlines the potential benefits for all stakeholders in the Montreal-based Eva ride-sharing cooperative—car owners, drivers, passengers, and local governments. Based on the EOS blockchain protocols, Eva peer-to-peer transportation is an open-supply system, whereas the taxi and limousine business is a fixed-supply system. Those two models cannot be regulated or run in the same say. This case looks at the tough road ahead for any start-up in such a hypercompetitive market.
