Last Thursday, January 17, In.Tu.In has sponsored and organized an event about real applications of Blockchain and IoT, carried out at the Eurostars de San-Lázaro hotel in Santiago de Compostela.
The event, held in collaboration with APD (https://www.apd.es/), had a full house, attended by more than 90 managers and representatives of the Galician business ecosystem and the rest of Spain.
During the event, different solutions, projects and companies were shown in the GodEnigma (https://www.godenigma.es/) as a technological partner of some of them, developing the necessary technology to certify consumption and data or trace products.
In the case of blockchain, for GodEnigma, it has a close relationship with the IoT, since the potential of Blockchain lies in the possibility of certifying data and plotting things, for which it is important the connectivity of things and that the sensors have the ability to communicate through the internet.
From GodEnigma, to thank InTuIn (https://www.intuin.es/) for the possibility of assisting listeners to the event and for having contributed in some of the projects, as in GReenb2e, part of the know-how and experience of the GodEnigma team in the development of innovation projects in special relation with IoT and Blockchain.
Below is the list of speakers and what their projects and presentations dealt with (facilitated by InTuIn):
- Ramón Carreira, general manager of Naust Marine Spain, who introduced his new Smart View project, which allows to monitor and control in-line trawl equipment in ships of all types with the aim of detecting failures in the systems and doing a preventive maintenance that reduces failures and costs due to the displacement of technicians and repairs abroad.
- Rosa María Seoane, director of innovation of ABanca, who explained to us her global project of efficient and digital office, where they are carrying out a gamification project using blockchain to register energy consumptions and savings in them. We also stressed the importance of cybersecurity in projects with blockchain, as it is a technology not yet mature, and special protection is necessary when we are testing new technologies.
- Miguel Porras, from Naos Arquitectos, who showed the need for sensor technology to reach the passive elements of buildings to reduce maintenance costs
- José Nogueira, president of Xesol Innovation, an innovation company, working on people and traffic detection systems, implementing artificial intelligence and machine learning solutions to create products and services that add value, improve the efficiency of our cities and increase security in industrial companies. He stressed the importance of using technology for what really works and that in order for it to survive and take hold it is necessary that other systems adapt and integrate with it.
- Miguel Pelegero, project manager and business director of Greenb2e, an energy services company, who presented his renewable energy registration project and its conversion into tokens in a blockchain to be able to trade with them in a secondary market.
- Alberto Díaz, from Euskatel-R, who through a case study indicated how important it is for companies to tell their challenges to technology partners since technology has to be implemented to respond to a problem and not the other way around.
After the presentations a question period was created, where the attendees took the opportunity to delve into some of the projects and questions were asked to the speakers about the technology, the barriers to realizing this type of projects or the risks of any of these technologies. Then coffee was given where the attendees could ask and discuss with the speakers and organizers questions and queries about the projects and technologies demonstrated.
