This is the first of 3 workshops on Blockchain, Smart Contracts, Deep Identity, and the emerging decentralized Internet Of Agreements. Check out The Sense Collective's Project page for more details.
EcoBlockchain is a blockchain-based framework that connects databases and analysis engines, creates context, and delivers sense intelligence. It is a framework for registering, identifying, and tracking sensor data and public works activities which rely on real-world measurements and scientific analysis.
The Sense Collective introduces the hardware (Perceptagon) and Software (LumenOS/EcoBlockchain) to transition our cooperative management of social and natural capital to the decentralized web. Perceptagon is a device that plugs into our natural world and the forces that change it. It is a hardware and software system specializing in the collection, analysis and distribution of biometric, atmospheric, environmental, geospatial and temporal data. Additionally it is a node in the network.
We will examine the distinct aspects of the "old" internet, and database infrastructure which is currently crumbling under the sheer volume of "Big Data" which floods corporate "Cloud" servers every day.
Using Raspberry Pi nodes, hosting Bitcoin and Ethereum Light Clients, a Lykke Wallet and Global Exchange portal, and several innovative blockchain alternatives and plug-ins (Nexus Earth, PIVX, BOSCoin, Expanse, DASH, SONM, GOLEM) The LumenOS Operating System hosts over 100 Geospatial database frameworks, Simulation Modeling tools, AI Decision Support, alongside an amazing combination of Creative Coding frameworks, Generative Display, Sonification, Projection Mapping, and other creative tools,
This first workshop will focus on: 1) Creating your first Deep Identity account. We will check out Uport, OneName, Truffle/Metamask, Token, and a few other emerging standard-bearers who are addressing the requirements of a decentralized identity.
2.) Organizing your specification interface to begin training your own personal AI Chatbot, and Decision Support framework,
Blockchain & Smart Contracts 101 We will spend the first 1/2 of the session going through the various components of blockchain technologies and I will provide enough detail for you to spend the 2nd portion of the workshop developing your own mini-project, smart contract, cooperative fund, Public Art Intervention, or Citizen Science experiment with one of several available physical computers and sensor kits. I will have examples from MaxMSP, Arduino, and P5js as to how creative coding can be used to make sense of the various blockchain transactions in a way that helps to expand these concepts into broader use within our society.
