联合国合作伙伴哈拉采用Hedera DLT作为冲突预警系统

2020-11-19 13:03

 

Hedera Hashgraph宣布Hala Systems已采用其分布式分类帐技术(DLT)。哈拉(Hala)是一家战争科技社交企业,为冲突和自然灾害提供预警系统“哨兵”,据称该系统在叙利亚大量使用。 Hedera为Hala提供了用于照片,视频和音频的日志记录系统。

“ Hala Sentry使平民能够从其智能手机记录不可变的数据,警告其他人潜在的危险,在事件发生时准确记录下来,并为全球利益相关者提供可靠的记录,以作为决策依据,” Hala Systems首席执行官John Jaeger说道。

但是,Jaeger指出,通过使用Sentry,用户可以“对其真实性充满信心”。 DLT意味着一旦数据进入网络,就很难对其进行篡改。但是与所有区块链和DLT一样,是否事先对数据进行操作是另一个问题。

借助Sentry,远程传感器和人工智能可帮助识别警报器,视觉警告甚至社交媒体警报等信息。它还使人道主义组织能够集中精力。另外,哨兵还记录了战争罪行。

该公司声称:“自2017年以来,对叙利亚西北部的多次进攻进行分析,哨兵与空袭造成的净伤亡率平均下降10-30%相关。”它说它每天发出140条警告。

Hala并未使用Hedera的全部功能和智能合约,而是在使用提供时间戳功能的Hedera共识服务(HCS)。事件由相机的按键签名并登录到网络上。因为HCS并没有承担支持智能合约的所有开销,所以它相当快,这对于用例的性质非常重要。

以太坊公司ConsenSys在其网站上有关于Hala的案例研究。 Hedera声称Hala由于速度和可变费用而发现以太坊不适合其用例。但最可能的原因是在DeFi繁荣期间,转换成本很高。

Hedera首席执行官曼斯·哈蒙(Mance Harmon)表示:“与公司的其他合作伙伴(包括联合国,英国外交部和发展办公室,美国国务院和其他外交部)一起,我们希望成为该冲突管理解决方案的一部分。”哈希图。

Hedera是专注于企业的DLT,在其理事会中拥有15个组织,其中包括13家大型企业,如波音,谷歌,IBM和FIS。

 

 Hedera Hashgraph announced that Hala Systems has adopted its distributed ledger technology (DLT). Hala is a wartech social enterprise that provides an early warning system ‘Sentry’ for conflicts and natural disasters, which it says is heavily used in Syria. Hedera provides Hala with a logging system for photos, video and audio.

“Hala Sentry empowers civilians to record immutable data from their smartphones, warning others of potential dangers, accurately documenting events as they happen, and providing global stakeholders with credible records upon which to base decisions,” says John Jaeger CEO of Hala Systems.

However, Jaeger notes that by using Sentry users can be “confident about its authenticity”. DLT means that once data is on the network, it’s rather hard to tamper with. But as with all blockchains and DLTs, whether or not the data was manipulated beforehand is another question. 

With Sentry, remote sensors and artificial intelligence help identify information such as sirens, visual warnings, and even social medial alerts. It also enables humanitarian organizations to focus their efforts. Plus Sentry also documents war crimes.

The company claims that “an analysis of multiple offensives in northwest Syria since 2017, Sentry was correlated with a 10-30% mean reduction in net casualty rates due to airstrikes.” It says it issues 140 warnings a day.

Hala isn’t using Hedera’s full power and its smart contracts but instead is using the Hedera Consensus Service (HCS), which provides a timestamping function. Events are signed by a camera’s keys and logged on the network. Because the HCS doesn’t carry all the overhead of supporting smart contracts, it’s rather fast, which is important for the nature of the use case.

Ethereum house ConsenSys has a case study about Hala on its website. Hedera claims Hala found Ethereum unsuitable for its use case because of speed and variable fees. But most likely the primary reason for the switch was the very high costs during the DeFi boom.

“Together with the company’s other partners, including the United Nations, U.K. Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office, the U.S. State Department, and other foreign ministries, we look forward to being part of this conflict management solution,” said Mance Harmon, CEO of Hedera Hashgraph.

Hedera is the enterprise-focused DLT with 15 organizations on its governing council, including 13 large enterprises such as BoeingGoogleIBM and FIS.
