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.”
