The all-encompassing vision of “the Spatial Web,” brings together SSI, AI, AR, and other technologies into a coherent and highly useful near future.
Yale Researchers Turn to Hyperledger to Track Carbon Emissions
It may sound facile to say technologies like blockchain, IoT and AI can protect us. But it’s a combination of those tools that software architects think will help mitigate the largest known existential threat we face today: climate change.
A team from Yale University’s Open Innovation Lab (OpenLab) has been exploring how distributed ledgers, Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and other data-science tools can be used to measure and track carbon emissions.
“Another Open Climate collaboration involves incorporating digitally verifiable credentials into Verses Labs’ “Spatial Web” protocol, a virtual mapping of space using IoT sensors and artificial intelligence. It’s a way to “express actions in the real world, but manage them in the digital world.”
