Arteia announces the launch of its ICO (Initial Coin Offering). Arteia offers the first comprehensive, advanced technology platform set to empower art collectors by linking a collection management system to a matching platform supported by a provenance tracker. Arteia Collect, launched in October 2018, is the ultimate cataloguing solution to manage any kind of collections and was created by collectors for collectors.

Arteia will open at the end of the ICO it’s decentralized platform allowing art market’s actors to interact around a provenance ledger, to share, study, inventorize, lend and trade artworks through matching marketplaces, in a tokenized ecosystem.

Founded in 2016 in Brussels, and with its first product, Arteia Collect, launched in October 2018, Arteia’s project stems from the desire to bring more transparency and more security to the art world, the project is led by a mix of experts from the art, business and tech field. Its founders, Philippe Gellman (CEO), Marek Zabicki (CTO) and Olivier Marian (CSO),are entrepreneurs and experienced collectors.

Unlike any other known project, the Arteia platform’s MVP will be fully functional at the end of the ICO and will already offer the 5 use cases described in the white paper to the token holders.

We raised already EUR 3 million since the creation of the company to develop our working platform and we are onboarding new collectors every week. Now it’s time to rocket our project on an international basis and an ICO seemed the mos accurate way to get the necessary means and develop a whole tokenized eco-system. We will bring more efficiency and liquidity on the secondary market with much lower fees than on the actual Art market and more transparency creating a universal ledger by anchoring in the Blockchain the provenance of Art pieces.

The Arteia solution powered by our ICO is a promise of greater transparency and more equal distribution for the art market,” comments Philippe Gellman, the CEO of Arteia.

Arteia: the solution for an art market looking for innovation

The art market is one of the last still barely touched by the digital revolution. Art is a very profitable asset class, and art sales have been booming in the past years, partly due to the gradual introduction of online sales and online-only auctions.

However, the market lacks transparency related to artwork provenance, price-setting and commission fees. These problems pave the way for blockchain technology to make a critical and long-lasting impact on the industry by bringing more trust and liquidity to the art market.

Arteia has developed an innovative decentralized peer-to-peer service for artists, collectors, and professionals of the fine art ecosystem: a comprehensive platform to serve the needs of all the actors in the art market.

In this sense, we are proud to have already been able to develop partnerships and solutions with key respected actors in the sector, such as our joint venture with Cahiers d’Art, RAISONLINE, that will be the first  digital catalogue Raisonnesolution anchored to the blockchain.

We create the art world of tomorrow

The total pool of token for this operation is fixed at 400,000,000 (four hundred million) ARTK, the Soft cap for this operation is settled at US $3.5 millioand the Hard cap is at US $15 million. 50% of the tokens will be sold during the ICO.

Token prices will be fixed shortly before the pre-sale and the main sale according to BTC and ETH volatily.

This ICO will be one of the first offering where all 5 use cases described in the Whitepaper will be running and available for token buyers at the end of the fundraising sale period when the toekens are issued.

What use for the ARTK token?

The ARTK token will allow its owner to subscribe to and access the platform’s services directly after the ICO. It will also manage the access to the provenance tracker where artists and estates will be able to store publicly and securely the provenance of their artworks.

The five use cases that will be available for token holders will be:

  1. Subscription to the cataloging solution.
  2. Provenance: adding provenance details of an artwork by the users and consulting the provenance of an artwork.
  3. Matching and allowing both parties to agree on the details of a transaction in a secure and trusted environment provided by smart-contracts powered by the ARTK token.
  4. Lending: allowing collectors to safely lend his artworks to museums and exhibitions.
  5. Showcase: creating a public or private showcase and gain recognition or just share the passion.

In the long run, Arteia’s goal is to become a global platform for the art market actors, with a marketplace supported by our provenance ledger, to trade art works in fiat or crypto currencies. Such a platform will help the digital world of token and crypto to connect with the physical field of art.

Cofounded by collectors and engineers, Arteia uses the finest and latest technologies  including blockchain  to suit the needs of all the actors of the art worldOur teams have been working for three years to develop this product, which is already used by artists and galleries. More than 30 000 artworks are already onboarded, explains Philippe Gellman, CEO Arteia

Blockchain technologies for the highest possible level of trust, security and confidentiality

Created by collectors to meet their needs, Arteia knows the extent to which the security and confidentiality of art collections are foremost. This is why Arteia’s access is protected by Two-Factor Authentication and allows the user to decide where the data is stored (on various hosted servers around the world, or on a personal server disconnected from the Internet).

Arteia also leverages on blockchain technologies to develop its artwork provenance tracker, creating an immutable history of each artwork life. This provenance database will serve as a tool to verify the authenticity of an artwork and to establish the value of the piece. Dealing with artworks with a veritable digital identity will also bring higher trust in the platform. Furthermore, blockchain technologies will enable the creation of immutable digital “catalogues raisonnes” by contemporary artists, creating a complete list of all their works in a simple and secure manner.

Arteia’s blockchain infrastructure will allow peer-to-peer connections between art collectors allowing direct sales,and we are looking forward implementing price predictions and trends analysis to help them make better decisions. In this sense Arteia is a real use case for blockchain technologies: offering transparency and liquidity on the market, it will allow people, to use art as an investment in a rapidly changing digital age, points out Marek Zabicki, CTO Arteia.

YAO Network: The Blockchain Paradise Developers Have Been Waiting For

Published

on

Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

Permissioned blockchain? Private blockchain? Public blockchain? Fret not for YAO Network accepts them all. YAO Network is a cloud service paradise for new blockchain projects looking for a community to nestle in and make their homes there. By integrating cloud computation with decentralized computation, the YAO Network is able to support computation eco-platforms of multiple blockchain networks, maximizing the utility of all participants while helping projects to achieve their technological targets and generate value.

The YAO Network was built for a vision: to benefit developers and to help enterprises achieve much more, freeing the successes of blockchain technologies for all to enjoy. This vision grounds the design of YAO Network’s architecture as the platform seeks to establish a comprehensive service and utility computation platform where Pareto optimality is achieved amongst developers, enterprises, and overall public utility.

Like many other blockchain platforms out there, technology remains a key factor in determining a platform’s functionality. The YAO Network certainly has a strong pillar of support in its robust technical infrastructure to achieve its goals.

1. YAO Network integrates multiple computation paradigms in utility computation.

The YAO Network platform effectively combines three computational paradigms, cloud computing, decentralized computing and encrypted computing, to meet the demands of different applications and create maximum computation utility.

Cloud computation has been gaining massive popularity as a computational model in many enterprises and the public. The advantages of cloud computation are numerous. It saves cost for enterprises, developers and the public while offering flexible workload deployments, which enhances the overall utility of both individuals and society.

Recognizing the advantages of cloud computation, the YAO Network platform makes cloud computing the only carrier of all service and computation units in the blockchain. Cloud computing is not only utilized for deployments and encrypted computation of centralized applications, but also widely applied in decentralized blockchain networks.

2. YAO Network standardizes decentralized and centralized computation units based on cloud computation.

Different computation units have been designed for various types of applications to promote the usage of blockchains in the public domain. YaoLet is the solution designed by the YAO Network for decentralized applications, while BuildPack is its equivalent for centralized applications designed based on PaaS. The entire architecture is rested on these two solutions alongside other services. As YaoLet and BuildPack are both multiplexed; developers and service providers can participate in the sharing of YaoLet and BuildPack and reap the rewards through corresponding YAO Network reward system.

3. YAO Network allows softwares to define blockchain through topological orchestration and virtualization.

Most computations are no longer an isolated and individual computation unit; they have complex interconnections that are unified by a topological structure. This combination of computational units is achieved through topological orchestration.

On one hand, new services and components can be combined and orchestrated by existing computation units. On the other hand, various infranets in blockchains can also be orchestrated to establish corresponding nodes and services. Most blockchain architectures like YAO Network take on a modularized approach where interledger general blockchain protocols are made viable through plugging and unplugging every component and service as well as modularizing operations. The blockchain network becomes the virtual superposition of peer-to-peer networks, making it possible to define new blockchain network models and service models through virtual and abstract orchestrations.

4. YAO Network supports multiple blockchain network architectures and paradigms including public blockchains, permissioned blockchains and private blockchains.

The blockchain network within YAO Network supports three types of blockchains, namely public blockchain, permissioned blockchain and private blockchain. They can be broken down into shared and exclusive nodes based on the extent of its isolation. Enterprises and developers can build on shared blockchains or create their own exclusive blockchains on the YAO Network platform. Another alternative would be to classify the blockchain network based on its testnet and mainnet, and their applications.

5. YAO Network maximizes utility of developers, enterprises and the general public.

YAO Network is a one-stop blockchain service platform for blockchain service consumers, developers and enterprises to share innovations both in public and private. One of the biggest hurdles blockchain has yet to overcome is its low adoption rate and thus the YAO Network has provided blockchain PaaS services for developers to utilise and a platform where they can release their blockchain products directly to blockchain service providers. This forms a healthy supply and demand ecosystem as iterations of blockchain products are incubated or eliminated based on practicality and impact. Those that are proven viable will unite and form a larger blockchain ecosystem and platform.

Developers even earn the chance to make some profits through the YAO Network. The network rewards developers when their creations are utilised by others. In addition, the YAO Network has three specific function modules in terms of product modality: blockchain marketplace, enterprise aggregation and solutions, and developer community. This forms a trinity that works together to serve both developers and enterprises. Driven by supply, YAO Network solves the scarcity of blockchain comprehensive services by connecting and bridging between developers and enterprises, in order to establish a healthy and organic ecosystem where all participants have maximum utility within the system.

6. YAO Network has high inclusivity in the system.

A well-designed architecture should have open interfaces. Every layer delivers its own functions, and is connected to each other through the same cross layer interface. The YAO Network system is designed based on important principles including openness, security, technology neutrality, verifiability in the future, interoperability, scalability, modularization, manageability and dependability, to achieve inclusivity in the system.

YAO Network embraces existing and future blockchain applications and is committed to establishing a comprehensive computation platform with multiple blockchains, multiple computational paradigms and integrated utilities.

New Research Reveals SafelyYou’s AI-Enabled Fall Detection Reduces Need for Emergency Service Care in Dementia Care Facilities

Published

on

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Real-time fall detection using SafelyYou’s artificial intelligence-enabled video recording reduced the need for emergency services by a staggering 80% in dementia care facilities, according to research results published in the American Journal of Managed Care. The study closely examined the impact of SafelyYou’s memory care-focused technology to detect falls, videotape falls and notify care staff so that video review of the incident could occur immediately after each fall.

“According to the Alzheimer’s Association Report (2016), fall injury is the leading cause of Alzheimer dementia–related hospitalizations, with $5.3 billion in annual cost to Medicare,” said Glen Xiong, Advisory Board Member for SafelyYou. “In residential care facilities, individuals with dementia fall, on average, four times per year and twice as often as other residents. Falls often go unwitnessed. Due to uncertainty regarding the seriousness of each fall, facility staff frequently activate local emergency medical teams to examine the residents, and such visits often result in emergency department visits.”

The study, supported in part by a National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Aging Small Business Innovation Research Grant, was conducted with enrolled participants on June 1 to Aug. 31, 2018. Fall incidents and outcomes were routinely recorded for facility residents, and facility staff reviewed the falls in real time, immediately after each incident, for study participants.

Among 147 falls in the control group, 52 (35.4%) resulted in EMT visits and 36 (24.5%) resulted in ED visits. In contrast, the intervention group had 83 falls, with 13 (15.7%) and seven (8.3%) resulting in EMT and ED visits, respectively. There were relative reductions of 75% in EMT visits and 80% in ED visits.

The AI-enabled camera fall detection system coupled with staff review of fall videos led to more accurate identification of serious falls and incidents compared with less serious falls, such as when a resident intentionally moved to the ground but did not fall.

“Using emergency services less frequently leads to lowered healthcare costs and stress for everyone,” said George Netscher, CEO of SafelyYou. “Speaking with families and hearing the testimonials is really the very best part of our day.”
