Integrating “Blockchain + IoT + AI” into traditional industries

Integrating “Blockchain + IoT + AI” into traditional industries

Linfinity CEO Anndy Lian was invited as a keynote speaker at Huobi Carnival in South Korea, held from August 2 to 3.

Huobi Carnival was organised by Huobi, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. Industry heavyweights and South Korean government officials gathered at the event to discuss the future development of the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry.

Blockchain needs to be combined with traditional industries

In his keynote speech, Lian introduced blockchain anti-counterfeit tracking technology and its business applications. He said, “The development of blockchain has brought new opportunities for traditional industries. But we need to clearly understand that blockchain’s development cannot be separated from traditional industries.”

Lian believes that due to blockchain’s transparency, immutability, and traceability, it can effectively resolve pain areas in various industries.

“I do not think blockchain has created a new industry. On the other hand, I think it is going to revolutionise other industries’ methods of growth by providing a new technological tool,” Lian added.

“Blockchain + IoT + AI” combination to combat counterfeits

According to a recent report from Research and Markets, the total loss caused by counterfeit products adds up to USD 120 billion in a year. That figure is estimated to increase to USD 182 billion in 2020. As counterfeit products become increasingly prominent, brands need to invest more time and money into protecting their brand image and products.

However, traditional anti-counterfeit technologies rely on centralised platforms and often use technology in limited ways. This makes them susceptible to malicious attacks.

Lian said, “The appearance of blockchain sheds light on a new future for different industries. For anti-counterfeiting, simply relying on blockchain technology will not be enough. If current technologies are effective 60% of the time, we need to bridge the remaining 40% by using blockchain, IoT, and AI.”

“This is how supply chains should be like. Decentralised data storage platforms can solve security and credibility concerns. AI can ensure that information entered is reliable. IoT allows more objects to be connected and communicate freely.”

“When using blockchain for anti-counterfeit purposes, and we need to revolutionise current methods at the same time. This will allow for a greater degree of integration and realise the true value of blockchain,” he added.

In an interview that Lian gave to the South Korean AsiaeTV, he said, “Blockchain will play an important role. And customers are very important in the process of blockchain commercialisation. Linfinity has already formed partnerships with multinational companies from diverse fields, including Taiwanese cigarette brand Alishan Group. Lian said, “Next, we are going to walk out of Asia and enter the European market, look for more industry partners, and drive blockchain’s commecialization.”

将“区块链+IoT+AI”融入传统行业 让防伪溯源攻无不克

将“区块链+IoT+AI”融入传统行业 让防伪溯源攻无不克

8月2至3日,由火币主办的火币嘉年华在韩国首尔举行,活动邀请了中韩区块链业内巨头与韩国政府官员,就行业的发展问题进行了深度探讨。Linfinity CEO Anndy Lian受邀出席并发表主题演讲。

区块链的发展要和传统行业相结合

Anndy在主题演讲中向与会人士介绍了Linfinity在区块链防伪溯源技术上的商业发展以及技术逻辑,他表示,区块链的发展为传统行业带来了新的动能,但我们必须清楚的认识到,区块的发展不能脱离传统行业。

区块链,因其透明性、不可篡改以及可追溯的特性,能够有效地解决目前存在的行业痛点。Anndy说道,“我不认为区块链创造了一个新的行业,反之,我觉得它作为一个新的技术工具,将革新整个行业的发展模式和进程。”

防伪“组合拳”——“区块链+IoT+AI”+物理防伪

据Research and Markets最新的调查报告显示,2017年全球假货造成的总损失达到1.2万亿美元,预计2020年将达到1.82万亿美元。在面临日益泛滥的假货问题时,品牌方需要花费更多时间和金钱来保护他们的品牌和产品,但传统行业的物理防伪因其中心化平台以及单一的物理防伪技术,很容易受到不法分子的攻击,从中牟利。

“区块链技术的出现为整个行业的发展带来了新的前景,但就防伪溯源这块而言,单靠区块链技术是不够的,如果说现在的物理防伪技术已经实现60%的防伪功能,那么剩下的40%需要依靠区块链技术、IoT以及AI来实现。整个供应链的防伪体制应该是这样的,区块链技术构建的去中心化信息平台能解决数据存储的安全和可信问题,AI能够确保信息录入的可靠性以及公允性, IoT技术发展使万物互联,信息互通。”Anndy补充道,“在运用区块链技术防伪的时候,我们也需要革新现有的物理防伪技术,使两者能够达到更大程度的融合,这才能实现其最大的价值。”

Anndy在接受亚洲经济电视台专访时表示,区块链防伪技术将在快消品行业中发挥重要作用。他说道,“在区块链商业化的进程中,消费者是十分重要的推动者,从民众日常接触的快消品开始,是区块链落地最好不过的切入点,目前,Linfinity已经与台湾阿里山集团在内的多家跨国企业达成战略合作,接下来,我们将走出亚洲,进军欧洲市场,寻求更多的行业伙伴,共同推动区块链的商业化进程。”
