Xerox Wins Patent for Blockchain Framework That Tracks Updates to Electronic Records
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted Xerox a patent for a blockchain-driven evaluating framework for electronic documents, as per a patent recording distributed Nov. 13.
Xerox — known for its eponymous printing and advanced duplicating machines — first recorded the patent in August 2017. The patent depicts a blockchain-based framework for the safe chronicle of amendments made to electronic archives.
The innovation offered by Xerox can as far as anyone knows to recognize whether a document has been modified and tracks the historical backdrop of changes made. Attributable to the decentralized confirmation component, the framework along these lines winds up impervious to altering, the documenting states.
Clarifying the innovation behind the patent, Xerox depicts a progression of blockchain hubs that may support or reject every correction made. The recording likewise suggests that the administration system will alarm its clients at whatever point a specific hub neglects to support the archive or the substance varies from its checked adaptation.
Xerox trusts that the recently licensed innovation can be utilized to review electronic documents in numerous zones, for example, therapeutic and monetary records, charge papers, and instructive reports. The documenting particularly specifies criminal examination records, for example, talk with notes, wrongdoing scene photographs, and DNA test results that must be shielded from adjustments and altering.
In 2016, Xerox documented a comparable patent., meaning to make a blockchain-based timestamp convention for information, for example, duplicates or pictures. As indicated by the documenting, the organization needed the imprints to be unalterable, implying that information bearing such a stamp could be submitted in court as proof.
Real tech and hardware organizations have documented a huge number of patent applications for different restrictive cycles and uses of blockchain innovation. A September report expressed that IBM had recorded more blockchain-related patent applications than some other organization at the season of production.
IBM has documented more than 90 blockchain licenses, the latest of which plans to utilize blockchain innovation to help logical research and give a record of its outcomes.
