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.

https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/the-lion-the-unicorn-and-the-crown/
May 10, 2018 - In this research project, Joel Telpner gives us a guided tour of regulatory risk. Pulling lessons from regulating innovation in telecommunications and the financial markets, he focuses on the extent to which the blockchain represents unprecedented regulatory challenges. He advocates a level-headed approach to determining when regulation is necessary and, in such cases, the form that regulation should take, so as to minimize the unintended consequences. Using illustrations by the legendary political cartoonist John Tenniel and passages from Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass: and What Alice Found There, Telpner gives executiv...
Governance Of Blockchain Systems
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/governance-of-blockchain-systems/
Jun 27, 2018 - Decentralization, hashing functions, public key cryptography, and smart contracts are advantageous design features of blockchain systems. These require the coordination of multiple and diverse actors with differing incentives—cryptoeconomics—to solve any problems that arise. This research examines the impact of governance on these systems. Specifically, it explores governance needs at three levels of the blockchain stack: the Internet layer, the blockchain layer, and the application layer, including the deployment of decentralized applications (Dapps). De Filippi and McMullen explain the difference between governance by the infrastructure...
Blockchain In Commercial Insurance
File Type: Document, Infographic
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/commercial-insurance/
Nov 21, 2019 - Insurance is a significant industry worldwide: in 2017, total global gross written premiums tallied $4.8 trillion. In this white paper, Henry Kim and Muhammad Izhar Mehar of the Schulich School of Business offer clear guidance for evaluating potential blockchain use cases in commercial insurance. They take a “first principles” approach rooted in historical and economic perspectives and provide a more scientific framework for comparisons. It is a practical work for professionals responsible for sizing up the potential of distributed ledger technology in the insurance industry.
Blockchain and the Global CIO
File Type: Document, Infographic, Video
https://www.blockchainresearchinstitute.org/project/blockchain-and-the-global-cio/
Jan 22, 2018 - This research anticipates blockchain's impact on enterprise IT architecture and the role of the chief information officer, sometimes called the chief technology officer or chief digital officer. It examines "low-hanging fruit,” that is, use cases where processes are ripe for change, volumes are predictably low, and the potential rewards are large. It also explores the coming convergence of emerging technologies--artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, and Internet of Things--and how those will catalyze distributed business models based on decentralized structures and disintermediated transactions. Finally, it provides a digital...
