Workshop Description

The global supporting digital infrastructures, the huge capacity to communicate, execute, monitor and control operations, operators, and processes, create an expected distributed environment leaded by concrete goals but uncertain results instead. Besides the integration and interoperability requirements, the capacity to assure the integrity for the quality of services, continue representing the most serious criteria to fit. This is even more serious when the automation tries to free the active involvement of human’s decisions. Blockchain and its non-required leading central authority have been shown its diverse application fields in recent years. It is highly expected that blockchain results represent a key enabling for new technological and industrial innovation. The emergent experiential context arising from the Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, and Mixed Reality advances and implementations, show and promote the creativity potential of new services and challenges. Nevertheless, new archetypes require new management and control rules and concerns.
