Blockchain technology and Self-stabilising systems

Geschreven door Ben van Lier - 15 april 2019

In 1954, one of the pioneers behind cybernetics, W. Ross Ashby, defined homeostasis as behaviour of interconnected machines that “is adaptive if it maintains the essential variables within physiological limits”. [1] Ashby based his definition on experiments he conducted with four interconnected machines that formed a new whole that he called the Homeostat. Operational stability of this new whole is achieved as one of the whole’s properties. In fact, Ashby considered this particular property a form of autonomous coordination of activities by and between the various machines.  Lees meer >>

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 >>

Op 12 oktober kopte Computable ‘Fiscus: beveiligen persoonsdata technisch onmogelijk’. Het artikel benadrukt dat de Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens (AP) een belangrijke rol ziet voor privacy logging in het verantwoorden van gegevensverwerkingen. Sterker nog, de Autoriteit vindt dat organisaties daartoe wettelijk verplicht zijn. 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 >>

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 >>
