    ONTOCHAIN
    ONTOCHAIN was launched in September 2020 to empower innovators and end users
    through 3 Open Calls to develop blockchain-based knowledge management solutions that
    will be part of a novel software ecosystem for a better share of knowledge and value.
    ONTOCHAIN - Trust traceable and transparent ontological knowledge on blockchain, is a European
    project funded by the European Commission under the European Union’s Horizon 2020
    Research and Innovation Programme, and part of the European Commission’s Next Generation
    Internet (NGI) initiative.

    TODAY’S INTERNET
    CHALLENGES
    The internet of the future should be more
    resilient, trustworthy and sustainable.
    4
    The success of the Internet lied in free speech,
    open innovation & Interoperability
    ONTOCHAIN approach is to leverage
    sementic web and blockchain assets to
    built as a distinct added value for the next
    generation internet:
    -Trustworthy data and services exchange
    -Trustworthy content handling
    However
    Growing concerns that openess, trustworthyness,
    privacy and security are being threatened by the
    quest for high performance and profit
    Multiple threat have been identified when people
    interact with online services :
     Unknown provenance of information
     Anonimity in favor of criminal activities
     Personal privacy violation & personal data exploitation
     Biases in AI algorithms
     No fair rewards for quality contribution
     Spread of fake news
     Centralisation of power
    Existing problems of misuse of
    information can soon achieve even
    more dangerous level !

    BLOCKCHAIN
    Set of technologies that focus on data,
    i.e., how they are described, modelled,
    and linked.
    A technology that aims at storing data
    and share such data among a set of
    peers, who validate the content without
    the intervention of a third-party
    services.
    Trustworthiness is achieved by standardised storage and ontologies (shared
    conceptualisation) on one hand as well as on the other hand by the decentralisation and
    data immutability (shared ledger)

    As future work:
     Define the ONTOCHAIN architecture in more depth with detailed API among the different
    components and implementation details.
     Demonstrate prototype implementations of exemplary distributed applications enabled by
    the proposed platform

    CONCLUSION
    9
    At the end, ONTOCHAIN will deliver a complete software ecosystem and novel, ambitious
    Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) applications in areas such as :
     trustworthy web and social media
     trustworthy crowdsensing
     trustworthy service orchestration
     decentralised and unsupervised online social networks
     …
    Successful : if this ecosystem of innovative applications is widely and sustainably adopted by
    vital sectors of the European economy.
    That is our intention!
