Dr. Aloqaily, was the guest speaker today of the CCI Seminars in CS series. Due to its contemporary value, the event was attended by a diverse audience from our colleagues and students from the University of Sharjah, Dr. Aloqaily, Director of Cyber Security program at the College of Engineering, Al Ain University, UAE, highlighted the varied application of Block Chains in the industry, particularly in current energy systems.
Dr. Aloqaily, explored the global use pattern of reliance on fuel fossils resources that continued to increase since 1965 to date, depleting these natural resources, hence the need to look for innovative technological-backed solutions to find sustainable solutions for the future.
As examples of these solution, Dr. Aloqaily presented several paradigms that are currently in use in the world and in UAE with a focus on Block Chain, like Etisalat mega project to revolutionize HR empowered system based on Block Chain as a distributed open system.
The breakthrough in securing distributed systems using Blockchain technology, lead to a shift in the interest of the use of renewable distributed energy sources. As a distributed ledger system, block chain is opened for all nodes/block users that attest the created documents by across the network, examples were explored like digital currency, smart contracts, certificates attestations, etc., where once a document agreed upon, it cannot be changed by the network peers .
