携手IBM,澳政府使用区块链保护数据安全

据彭博社7月5日报道,IBM已与澳大利亚政府签署了一份为期五年、总价10亿澳元(7.4亿美元)的协议。

根据该项合同,IBM将向澳大利亚国防和内政等联邦部门提供区块链、自动化和人工智能等技术,借此提高数据安全性。

IBM亚太区负责人Harriet Green表示,新的合作伙伴关系让英联邦公民能够跨越许多政府机构而有机会获得世界上这个最伟大的技术。

她表示,新的伙伴关系将把澳大利亚推向“世界数字政府前三名”。

在访谈中Green一再强调,要确保公民的数据安全,因为数据安全是区块链的基础创新。

Green认为这次合作是澳大利亚迈向国家管辖内不同领域(包括税收和边境管制)的“无纸化未来”的重要一步。

澳大利亚政府的数字化转型机构在2018-2019的预算中已拨出530,000美元,并打算将其用于区块链研究,此举是由该国总理Malcolm Turnbull促成的。

IBM本身一直在稳步扩大其在区块链不同领域的参与,它的区块链平台本周已成功为20家公司和5家主流银行首次实时运营其重大交易计划提供了支持。

 

IBM has signed a five-year AU$1 billion ($740 million) deal with the Australian government to use blockchain and other new technologies to improve data security, Bloomberg reports Thursday, July 5.

The major contract will see IBM provide technology such as blockchain, automation and artificial intelligence (AI) to Australian federal departments, including defense and home affairs.

IBM’s Asia Pacific head, Harriet Green, told Bloomberg that the new partnership will give Commonwealth citizens access to the “world’s greatest technologies” “across many, many government agencies.”

The new partnership will catapult Australia to “the top three of digital governments in the world,” she suggested.

In her interview, Green placed repeated emphasis on ensuring data security for citizens - for which blockchain’s central offering of an immutable and encrypted ledger is a cornerstone innovation.

Green also saw the deal as a major step in Australia working towards a “paperless future” across different realms of the state’s jurisdiction, including taxation and border control.

Just today, the world’s fourth largest cryptocurrency exchange by daily trade volumes, Huobi, confirmed it had launched trading on its new Australian platform, with the new CEO of Huobi Australia saying the exchange is “keen to partner with the growing numbers of Australian blockchain projects looking to list in a maturing market.”

The Australian government’s Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) 2018-19 budget has already earmarked $530,000 for blockchain research, a move it says was prompted by a specific request from the country’s Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull.

IBM for its part has been steadily expanding its involvement in blockchain across diverse fields, with its Blockchain Platform successfully used just this week to power the first live operations in a major trading initiative involving twenty companies and five major banks.
