Blockchain 2018: How will the blockchain change AI and the Internet of Things?

The three technologies of blockchain, artificial intelligence and internet of things have undergone rapid growth in the past ten years, among which are speculation and expectation. However, there is no doubt that their potential value has been unanimously approved. And 2018 seems to be a key year for these technologies to fuse when they mature, creating a chemical reaction. From the beginning of the blockchain, a new ecosystem will build on this foundation.

In this technological innovation, the most important thing is through the blockchain technology to rebuild the entire Internet foundation. In fact, either the Internet of Things or artificial intelligence, one of the obstacles that these two technologies face for further innovation is the inherent information security risk of the traditional Internet architecture. And blockchain technology can solve this problem to a great extent in three aspects: Firstly, the payment mechanism and communication channels built by the blockchain allow users to conduct direct commercial transactions without the intervention of a third party. At the same time, the characteristics of the blockchain network itself allow it to support linear, permanent indexing records, which allows users to globally review or quote without any authorization at all. It is also based on this that blockchain technology successfully enables users to act as their own certification authority without having to trust one third party. Many of today's workers at the forefront of the industry are starting to call for "people should have their own data" rather than the traditional "centralization," believing that users (mutual) Self-control data "the first step.

For the new ecology, the blockchain has provided the Internet with a better record of storage and protection programs and is a "glue" for the entire new ecosystem. One can imagine, in the face of such a highly transparent and irreversible mode of operation, hacking almost impossible to start. Even in the face of the greatest threat - the usurpation of outsiders with control over internal equipment and recording - the blockchain can still contain it completely, knowing that such threats have inflicted numerous losses on today's Internet system.

Take IoT as an example. Under the traditional technology, it can be said that each IoT terminal device is the weakest and vulnerable point of entry for the system, especially for those "intelligent terminals" that are implanted with AI. Because the user Its operation is difficult for human intervention, so the potential risks have been constantly raised.

Think of today's hot smart home, have you ever thought about, when connected to all things, the risk will also be unlimited magnification, perhaps as long as any one terminal (such as a lamp) there is a security loophole, all your home appliances There will be paralysis at any time, and even the risk of malicious manipulation. And looking to the future, the risks are only likely to be further magnified: Smart medical devices represent a new possibility to save countless lives that are driven by artificial intelligence and trained in a great deal of biometric data so that they can be instantly formulated Efficient life-saving decision-making. Imagine, however, that if this device was attacked or invaded by an outsider, it would have been capable of generating a new kind of terrorism even though it was originally capable of ...

Similarly, there are autonomous vehicles, represented by google. At present, automatic driving technology has become more and more mature with the innovation of artificial intelligence and Internet of Things technology, and governments of all countries have also started to formulate corresponding laws and regulations. Unmanned traffic systems will become a reality in the near future. However, we can not ignore the fact that the primary goal of autonomous vehicles is to eliminate human factors and make transportation safer and more efficient, but is it really safe enough? Undoubtedly, once such a system that does not require human intervention has been intruded by malicious elements, the result is likely to be a disaster accompanied by a large number of casualties. And these are not alarmist, in fact, the present hackers have proved that they can completely take over Tesla's auxiliary driving system. It is no exaggeration to say that ensuring the data security of AI systems in autonomous vehicles (and any other smart facility) can be a life-or-death issue.

Therefore, for data communications and artificial intelligence, believe its biggest leap forward is not its own technological breakthrough, its success or failure is more likely to depend solely on the support of data security, reliability. In fact, many experts believe that if they are incapable of improving the security of the data they manage, whether it be artificial intelligence or the Internet of Things, they will no longer be held in the face of public exposures, especially criminals Any credibility, eventually only reduced to a beautification of science and technology demonstration.

In order to truly integrate these most incredible technologies, it is essential to generate new chemical reactions based on technical experience and practice based on strong security. Blockchain technology is really the best solution that can be seen so far Created a scalable, secure and easily audited data platform that has even reached the level of security it uses for national confidentiality. It is for this reason that 2018 will be a starting point, and as all three technologies mature and take advantage of each other's technological strengths and personalities, people are fully capable of making major breakthroughs and are beginning to build a society that is big enough to change human life and work And leisure ecosystem. The forthcoming move will be a multi-faceted revolution that will generate new personal identification systems from the combination of RFID, NFC and blockchain; to cryptocurrencies being (business) transactions that are widely used between AI and IoT devices ...

Changes will ensue, and I believe if there is such a time that we can make sure that mankind can achieve such a huge leap, it is undoubtedly the moment.
