Event: WORLD BLOCKCHAIN & TOKEN SUMMIT, 2018

In realizing the many applicable uses which are available today it is easy to see how Smart City dreams, Dubai hopes to create a distributed platform which will connect its citizens to public transportation, reduce energy consumption, create online libraries and resources for students, and allow businesses to openly share their resources. Dubai is looking to completely integrate its government sector using blockchain technology in order to increase efficiency, transparency, and openly transform its economy on its immutable openly accessible public ledger as Dubai’s most important experiments into the fintech realm. This will surely act as a model for other cities States and Countries throughout the region and the world taking full advantage as the Global Leader in this historic use case of this highly advanced infinately secure soon to be embraced in all aspects of our lives and always will be known as the greatest emerging technology of our time.

Dubai is a region where the blockchain can play a significant role of importance for the future. World Blockchain and Token Summit, Dubai will bring together a diverse range of local and international speakers to discuss blockchain and cryptocurrency use cases, the regulatory environment, technology hurdles and opportunities in innovation and disruption that can be leveraged using this technology.

Taiwanese Central Bank Sees Future In Blockchain For Payment Systems

Yang Chin-long, the new governor of Taiwan’s central bank, indicated in a speech yesterday, Feb. 26, that the bank would be open to exploring Blockchain technologies. At the end of January, Taiwanese capital Taipei had announced that they intended to turn into a ”smart city,” utilizing Blockchain for providing technological advances like pollution sensors and health history tracking to citizens by partnering with IOTA. During his speech at the presidential handover ceremony, Yang Chin-long said that the central bank will be open to “[adopting] artificial intelligence technologies and big data analysis to better predict and analyze global economic conditions:”

Press Release – CREDITS : Blockchain and Smart Contracts

IoT in Medicine

The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the key areas of innovative technology. The concept of the IoT is electronic devices “communicating” between themselves without human assistance, so objects share information through the World Wide Web automatically. By using TCP | IP (data transfer protocols), communication across a global network becomes more accessible and allows systems to be consolidated among themselves, creating a network of networks. As a result, it is possible to change not only the business model of individual industries, but also the economics of entire states. IoT is already used in agriculture, industry, finance, health care, etc.

IoT in medicine

The ability to use the IoT to allocate loads for medical equipment can reduce queues in diagnostic centers. The permanent stream of data provides a complete picture of the patient’s illness, allowing doctors to respond to any changes in a timely manner. Special devices measure important biometric data from patients and pass them to the cloud for processing and storage. In this way, nurses can visit the wards of patients who are in need at that particular time.

Diagnostics

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) can speed up diagnosis of pathologies, and make it as accurate as possible.

Examples of innovative development using AI in medicine:

  • September 2016, an Israeli company presented an AI-based system – Beyond Verbal, which is capable of diagnosing a disease by voice.
  • February 2017, American experts presented a wireless device which controls the health of athletes. The tool produces results based on the conduction properties of the skin. Data is sent to a smartphone or tablet.
  • May 2017, scientists from Perm introduced a system based on NeuroNet using a method of mathematical modelling to diagnose heart and vascular disease. This system is self-paced and capable of diagnosing itself. The process takes into account about 70 indicators.
  • Chinese specialists recently amazed with a unique AI-based clinical diagnosis system. In less than five seconds, it handles 100 disease histories. The machine diagnoses are 20%more accurate than those made by doctors.

Automatic diagnosis using Machine Learning will invariably be a next step in the transformation of medicine throughout the world.

Treatment through the IoT

To give urgent treatment to the wounded on the battlefield, Israeli scientists have developed a prototype bracelet with an NFC-chip. The device stores all the patient’s health information and a GPS map of the location where the soldier was injured.

A further example:

  • A special sensor built into shoes is designed to reduce leg pains and, in some cases, to completely heal the sick without medical intervention.
  • The sensors, produced by Ormyx, help people with peripheral neuropathy, which reduces the sensitivity of the legs, to control their disease. The system alerts patients about excessive foot pressure.

Through such developments, reliable data on the condition of the patient can be captured as quickly as possible and an appropriate treatment provided. Using a blockchain platform allows you to share and discuss your biometric parameters with an artificial intelligence medical specialist.

Remote patient monitoring

A special sensor developed by UCB and Byterfils – Sensor Pot – notifies patients of an upcoming epilepsy attack. In 2017, Band Aid released a small band which attaches to the body and connects wirelessly to a network. The appliance transmits health data to the cloud, and can be used in difficult regions where it is hard to obtain prompt medical care.

IoT can be used for the speedy transportation of blood and medicines, with special drones quickly adapting to the challenges. Robotic surgical systems now take part in operations, with almost 500 successful surgical interventions.

Blockchain and IoT – what do they have in common?

Blockchain is an extended database that is potentially accessible to everyone. There are no centralized elements in the system that can affect the management and operation of a blockchain. Blockchain can be used to preserve and protect data in the IoT domain. The CREDITS project has unique technical characteristics which make this platform well suited for use with the IoT, especially the  medical sector.

In DLT blockchain CREDITS can create fully-independent, decentralised and separate services inside blockchain using new advanced features and smart contracts. The platform has new network technological capabilities, with high speed and low transaction costs. A new algorithm achieves a huge number of transactions per second with a minimal transaction commission. At up to 1 million transactions per second, it is likely to be the only one with these capabilities on the market.

CREDITS blockchain supports public and private networks, has a decentralized storage and a closed-type source code. Some ways using the IoT on this platform to improve health systems:

  • Quickly receive and analyze patient health information from data transmitted by devices and chips in transplanted parts of the body.
  • Patients receive personalized treatment based on biometric information, transmitted from digital devices.
  • Ensuring the monitoring and management of medical assets.
  • Interact with the entire health system by connecting to the blockchain of individual medical devices.

Using these innovative technologies, it is possible to improve the overall quality-of-life of patients, to track how the equipment is used, and to provide home help to the patient. Blockchain can literally save lives by ensuring that patients are quickly and appropriately treated.
