Computing Across Data Silos Using Blockchain in Smart Cities

Hari Seldon Stage
Stage BAS

Supported by the Horizon 2020 on Smart Cities and Communities (SCC), the Triangulum project shall demonstrate how a systems innovation approach based around the European Commission’s SCC Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP) can drive dynamic smart city development, to be tested across three lighthouse cities: Manchester, Eindhoven and Stavanger. The data hub provides access to data from the urban infrastructures and allowing for provisioning of value-added services on top of it. The data might be available as streams of real-time sensor data, as (static) raw data originating from various data providers, or as enriched data which has been extracted and improved out of the raw data and/or the real time sensor data with e.g. semantic relations or quality information. The Open Data and Service Engine consists of two layers: 1) the Analytics Layer that deals with real-time sensor data, raw data and corresponding enriched data, which are all in turn made available for the required smart city ICT services, and 2) the Service Layer that uses filtered and aggregated data and information from the Analytics Layer in order to provide corresponding services which are either used by urban managers, citizens and communities via Smart City Apps or that monitor, control and/or manage urban infrastructures, e.g. in order to assess, evaluate, and improve their quality. Data sharing has become a popular daily life activity all around the world. Data analysis may yield value in different aspects. Data driven services has foreseen potential in many sectors, for example energy, health, banking, insurance and transportation. However, violations of user privacy and digital rights management (DRM) in form of unintended data use, corporate applications and security breaches are being widely reported across multiple sources. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims at protecting individual’s privacy. Cloud service providers dealing with EU citizen data must fully adopt to GDPR by 2018. However, accountability frameworks for distributed IT services is needed but still absent
