Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management-Kerala (IIITM-K) will organize a workshop on ‘Blockchain’, a cutting edge technology designed to provide a tamper-proof and immutable data storage system and transparency in digital applications, at Technopark here on March 3.
Described as the most promising technological innovation after the advent of Internet, the Blockchain technology leverages the idea of a distributed and decentralized ledger. The history of all the transactions that had ever occurred is stored in the ledger as “blocks” and distributed across the decentralized peer-to-peer network. All the validated transaction blocks are linked from the beginning of the chain to the most recent block, hence the name “blockchain”.
A clutch of experts, including Dr. Dilip Krishnaswamy, Senior Research Scientist, IBM Research Labs; Michael Gord (Blockchain Education Network); and Harsh Pokharna, Blockchain System Architect Co-founder, will be the main speakers.
Dr Asharaf S., Associate Professor, IITM-K, will chair the workshop which is to deliberate on a slew of issues like ‘Concept of Block Technology’, ‘Business Potentials’, ‘Research Opportunities’ and ‘Future Models and Practical Use cases’.
The workshop will be held at Travancore Hall, Park Center, Technopark from 9 AM to 5.15 PM. It will explore the upcoming research opportunities, business innovations and employment opportunities provided by blockchain technology. A panel discussion will cover the upcoming ideas and challenges in the domain of blockchains.
There will also be sessions to explore the potential application of blockchains in various business domains like banking, supply chain, financial services (fintech), asset registry, decentralized IoT, inventory, identity management, healthcare, insurance, public notary, e-KYC, besides managing and intangible assets (votes, ideas, reputation, intention, and health data).
The Blockchain technology has caught the fancy of technocrats and business executives across the globe. The workshop will be an interactive platform for students, researchers, software professionals and business executives to explore deep into the concept of blockchains.
Hailed as the backbone technology, it helps to establish trust among unknown entities without the need of middleman or third parties, thereby ensuring transparency in digital transactions. Most of the big players in the market predict that blockchains have the potential to disrupt various business domains such as cyber security and banking services in near future by performing quicker, secure and transparent transactions.
