Short Term Course : IDRBT Hyderabad

Event Details

Workshop Overview: This is the first Advanced Workshop that provides an Hands On Experience for Applications of Blockchain on varieties of Societal Applications.  ( the course was followed by a workshop). The Workshop speakers included external experst from Purdue University, IBM Research, National University of Singapore.

Blockchain has emerged as a robust solution to achieve trust and transparency across the Internet. It is based on peer-topeer architecture, which inherently guarantees that there is: 1) no single point of failure/control, 2) high availability, and 3) high resilience. To these architectural guarantees, Satoshi¬† Nakamoto devised & integrated cryptographic techniques, to emulate the real-world concept of getting paid for doing a job, so that new emergent properties like trust and transparency are also guaranteed. In this workshop we are going to understand a crypto-currency called bitcoin, which is doled out as an incentive to do the hard work of block-generation. Interlinked blocks form the blockchain. Blocks record transactions performed between peers in a publicly verifiable, immutable form. This invention provided a fresh way of re-looking at business processes that desperately vied for trust and transparency. A running application will be presented to make you understand these properties. We will also introduce you to other variants of blockchain that followed Nakamoto’s proposal; including Ethereum and its smart contract utility. The workshop will cover the concepts and theory in morning sessions followed by hands-on sessions in the evening. A basic understanding of concepts in security, privacy, and cryptographic functions is expected.
