Asia Blockchain Review

Major tech firm Microsoft has revealed that it is adopting blockchain technology to ensure that data entering the artificial intelligence (AI) system is transparent and trustworthy.

Enhancing AI Algorithms with Blockchain Tech

Microsoft disclosed that it is adopting blockchain technology to simplify the way AI systems are utilized, according to The Coin Republic. 

The company added that many Microsoft customers have been concerned with using AI, so the firm is introducing blockchain that can help AI systems carry out the process of machine learning to manage large sets of data.

To introduce this service, Microsoft has launched a tool under the name of Azure Blockchain Data Manager in Orlando, Florida, that can send on-chain data to other applications and integrate the blockchain system with AI applications.

Transforming Businesses with Blockchain and AI

Marc Mercuri, Principal Program Manager for Blockchain Engineering for Azure, stated that “from manufacturing to energy to the public sector to retail, artificial intelligence is digitally transforming business in every vertical”. 

Moreover, he revealed that blockchain can ensure data and algorithms in the system are trustworthy. For example, to track a shipment of organic beef originating in Argentina, technologies such as blockchain, IoT, and artificial intelligence can be integrated to ensure the transparency of the delivery process.

In this case, blockchain technology will let all stakeholders access shared data and agree on the location of the shipment as well as terms and conditions for the logistics operation. 

Avivah Litan, Vice President at Gartner Research, agreed that blockchain can help enhance the efficiency of AI models.

“With blockchain you get a shared, single version of truth and an immutable audit trail so it’s a much better source of data to feed your AI models,” Litan said.
