IBM To Trial Blockchain Tech To Track Usage Of Groundwater In California
In collaboration with not-for-profit organization the Freshwater Trust and satellite sensor provider SweetSense, the IBM project is looking to tackle unsustainable usage of groundwater.
The key reason that California has been targeted is that the location hosts one of the most at-risk aquifers in the U.S.How Will the IBM Pilot Work?
In order to obtain the data seamlessly and securely, the IoT sensors will transfer the data to the underlying IBM blockchain system.
Nathan Wangusi of IBM Research Africa explains that the concept being trialed in California could potentially make the transition over to African-based farmers.
The IBM researcher was also quoted as saying “The blockchain allows for visibility of water extraction and keeps a tight ledger on this, while helping with transparency and the ability to trade assets.”
At the turn of 2019 it was announced that IBM would be piloting a blockchain project to ensure that Cobalt is sourced in an ethical manner.
