By MIT Technology News

Growing numbers of technologists want to reinvent the Web, to counter dominance of firms like Facebook and Google. They say the tech inside digital currencies could transform the way we share data.

Our own Mike Orcutt wonders if they’re right

  1. Tech Giants Target Healthcare AI 

    Much of the dialogue surrounding the use of artificial intelligence (AI) has focused on its impact in the clinical section of healthcare, possibly as a direct result of the integration of AI start-ups, such as Flatiron Health, a healthcare technology company widely known for its cloud-based platform for oncology.

    In addition to investments in AI by healthcare enterprises, there has recently been a noticeable influx of investments, acquisitions, and overall interest in AI healthcare technology by some of the largest companies in the technology industry.

    For example, during the 60-day “sunrise period” for trademark holders prior to the domain launch of DotHealth (the registry for the .health domain extension), technology companies Alphabet (formerly known as Google), Amazon, Facebook, Apple, and Instagram each registered for a .health domain, in addition to well-known healthcare providers, payors, and pharmaceutical manufacturers, such as Mayo Clinic, Pfizer, and UnitedHealthcare. (Read more…)

  2. Polkadot is a heterogeneous multi‑chain technology

    It consists of many parachains with potentially differing characteristics which can make it easier to achieve anonymity or formal verification. Transactions can be spread out across the chains, allowing many more to be processed in the same period of time.

    Polkadot ensures that each of these blockchains remains secure and that any dealings between the are faithfully executed. Specialised parachains called bridges can be created to link independent chains.

  4. How to monitor the emergence of systemic risks in the proliferation of new blockchain applications?

    Blockchain applications may fail or disappear, especially if we consider their long term lifecycle. For instance, they are subject to the following risks (non-exhaustive list): durability of the crypto-algorithms, death spirals and bugs in their implementation.

    Some yet unknown future blockchain applications will grow into systemic risks. While insurance companies will certainly sell policies to protect individual blockchain consumers from blockchain failures, how are we going to monitor the proliferation of blockchain applications and identify the emergence of systemic risks?

    Will new blockchain rating/monitoring companies emerge to fill in this gap?
