Blockchain technology and ethics

Geschreven door Ben van Lier - 03 december 2018

The US National Institute of Standards and Technology recently published a report entitled Blockchain Technology Overview [1]. The report starts with background on blockchain technology, saying that “the core ideas behind blockchain technology emerged in the late 1980s and early 1990s.  Lees meer >>

Blockchain technology: how software nodes reach consensus

Geschreven door Ben van Lier - 29 augustus 2018

According to Dasgupta (2014 ), the development of software started in 1949 at a conference in the UK, when John Wheeler presented rules for the way in which hardware in the form of a computer can be programmed to execute certain tasks. The rules that Wheeler formulated for such computer programming were later referred to as software, Dasgupta explains. In Dasgupta’s view, the development of software led to a new symbiosis between “the physical computer built of electronic and electromechanical components and the liminal, quasi-autonomous ‘two-faced’ artifact called computer program (or later software) that would serve as the interface between the human user and the physical computer”.  Lees meer >>

Blockchain-of-Things

Geschreven door Ben van Lier - 16 mei 2018

In 1954 [1], English scientist W. Ross Ashby described the possibility of machine components establishing mutual connections or the interconnection of machines to create a new whole as a fundamental feature of these machines. Ashby concluded this after studying the functioning of an interconnected whole that he called a homeostat. Kline [2] defined the homeostat as follows: “The homeostat consisted of four interconnected boxes filled with electronic gear and switches.” (2015:52).  Lees meer >>

Blockchain between edge and fog computing

Geschreven door Ben van Lier - 13 februari 2018

The Merriam Webster dictionary defines autonomy as “the quality or state of being self-governing or the right of self-government”. The autonomy of physical devices is growing as they converge with software and are connected in networks through new combinations of hardware and software. Interconnection in networks enables such cyber-physical systems to communicate and interact with each other. Such communication and interaction, in turn, makes it possible for these systems to develop self-configuring, self-optimising, self-protecting and self-healing capabilities. When combined, these capabilities give cyber-physical systems great autonomy in the performance of their tasks.  Lees meer >>

According to Hanna Arendt [1], the adjective public “means, first, that everything that appears in public can be seen and heard by everybody and has the widest possible publicity” (1948:51).  Lees meer >>
