  4. | ONTOCHAIN.NGI.EU 4 IN BRIEF Up to 4.2 Millions €

    funding and mentoring program with best international experts in Semantic Web, Linked Data, ontology engineering, Blockchain interoperability, knowledge management, distributed and decentralised computing, business models for trusted knowledge … 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. 4
  5. | ONTOCHAIN.NGI.EU AT THAT POINT, WHAT IS THE ONTOCHAIN COMMUNITY?

    Experts in among others:  Semantic Web,  Linked Data,  Ontology engineering,  Blockchain interoperability,  Knowledge management,  Distributed and decentralised computing,  Business models for trusted knowledge  Communication & networking 7 Core Partners 30 Third parties innovators (OC1, OC2 and soon OC3) 8 Advisory Board Members from all over the world
  6. 6 ONTOCHAIN IS BORN OUT OF THE FACT THAT :

    The internet of the future should be more resilient, trustworthy and sustainable. 6 The success of the Internet lied in free speech, open innovation & Interoperability APPROACH: Leverage semantic 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 openness, trustworthiness, 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 ! OBJECTIVE: Develop a new software technologies stack based on this approach for different application domains e.g Online media, e-Education, e-Health, e-Government, e- Commerce, e-Tourism, e-Infrastructures, Industry 4.0 entertainment, and so forth.
