Research Overview

Author: Charlie Morris, Dieter Fishbein
Release Date: May 21, 2019

Abstract:

This research takes a deep dive into 5G and its challenges. Its authors, Charlie Morris and Dieter Fishbein, then shift the conversation to peer-to-peer mesh networks, which have the potential to disrupt the current monopolistic structure of the telecommunications industry around the world. What blockchain brings to the Internet stack is an incentive layer for rewarding participation.

Patents at the Trivergence

Led by an expert at Polsinelli PC, an Am Law 100 firm, this project examines the convergence of three technologies—blockchain, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things—within individual innovations, with a focus on patents. It identifies the most prolific patent applicants by country, company, and inventor. It also describes fascinating examples of “trivergence” in supply chains, transportation and automotive (BMW, Daimler, and Hyundai), and the additive manufacturing of medical devices, to name a few. Pure Storage tops the enterprise leaderboard, along with Intel, American Express Travel Services, Baidu, Tencent, Bank of America, and Salesforce.com. Leaders whose companies bank on their intellectual property will want to read this piece.

Filecoin and the Future of Decentralized Cloud Storage

Filecoin is a decentralized protocol that anyone can download to rent out spare storage space on their computer. An alternative to traditional cloud storage, the Filecoin blockchain-based storage solution leverages a peer-to-peer architecture, creating massively scalable storage capacity without building massive new infrastructure. Instead of entrusting one company to store and protect valuable digital assets and documents in a single jurisdiction, customers can split up and store their assets on different computers around the world. The low barriers to entry and the economic rewards for miners make for ample supply of storage, keeping fees quite attractive; and the dispersion of files makes them difficult to hack, seize, or take down. This research walks executives through enterprise use cases and the benefits of participating in decentralized storage networks.
