BRINGING TRUST TO HEALTHCARE WITH BLOCKCHAIN, AI & IOT

August 21, 2018

Global healthcare is projected to reach $8.7 trillion by 2020, but despite rapid expansion, the healthcare industry is experiencing challenging times, with rising costs, particularly in the United States, technological and operational inefficiencies, and increasing cyber attacks. On the other hand, we are also experiencing an exciting time of evolving new technologies and applications, like blockchain, AI and IoT which we believe will revolutionize the healthcare industry. For awhile, we have been searching for answers on how to improve human health and longevity, deliver a superior healthcare experience for both patients and providers, and give people full control over their personal health data, where they can securely access their medical records anywhere in the world and easily monetize on it. We believe that bringing emerging technologies, like blockchain, AI and IoT is an ideal solution for improving many healthcare industry inefficiencies. Blockchain can accommodate the recording of all transaction life cycle events, verify patient identification, assure accurate payments, foster easier and faster access to accurate information. Blockchain combined with AI and IoT, will create powerful new paradigm for disease detection, diagnosis and treatment.

Using Artificial Intelligence in the Internet of Things

whitePaper | March 1, 2016

The Internet of Things (IoT) has received much attention over the past decade. With the rapid increase in the use of smart devices, we are now able to collect big data on a daily basis. The data we are gathering (and related problems) are becoming more complex and uncertain. Researchers have therefore turned to artificial intelligence (AI) to efficiently deal with the problems created by big data. This special issue deals with the technology and applications of AI in the IoT and is a forum for scientists, engineers, broadcasters, manufacturers, software developers, and other related professionals to discuss related issues. The topics addressed in this special issue include current research progress, real world applications, and security issues related to AI in IoT. The call for papers attracted a number of excellent submissions. After two round reviews, five papers were selected for publication. These papers are organized in three groups. The first group comprises one overview paper that outlines the technical progress of IoT. The second group comprises two papers addressing security issues in IoT. The last group comprises two papers that present some interesting real world applications that will benefit daily life.

The Internet of Things—Without Compromise

whitePaper |

It’s tempting to think about the Internet of Things (IoT) as a vast and formless universe of connectable devices and free-floating data. If we can connect to a large number of devices and capture and store large quantities of data via the IoT, perhaps we’ll find ways of improving the efficiency of our businesses. Because we are also tempted to think that bigger is better, the more device connections we can make and the more data we can store for analysis, the more likely we will be to discover something significant.
