Abstract: Due to the demand of new solutions during the last few decades, there is an exponential increase in the usage of various smart applications such as smart farming, smart healthcare, supply-chain & logistics, business, tourism and hospitality, energy management etc. However, for all the applications, security and privacy are major concerns keeping in view of the usage of the open channel, i.e., Internet for data transfer. Although many security solutions and standards have been proposed over the years to enhance the security levels of smart applications, but the existing solutions are either based upon the centralized architecture (having single point of failure) or having high computation and communication costs. Moreover, most of the existing security solutions have focussed only on few aspects and fail to address scalability, robustness, data storage, network latency, auditability, immutability, and traceability. To handle these issues, blockchain technology can be one of the solutions.
Blockchain technology is poised to become a leading solution to handle issues like scalability, robustness, data storage, network latency, auditability, immutability, and traceability in various industries. This webinar will propose a systematic review of various blockchain-based solutions and their applicability in Industry 4.0-based applications.
- Industrial applications of Blockchain (telecommunications, retail, healthcare, manufacturing, automotive, banking and finance, voting, etc.).
- Systematic review of various existing and upcoming advancements in blockchain.
- Blockchain as the future of the economy and everything around us!
