The ethics team at IAP, led by Dr. Stephen Boulter, has identified three major areas of ethical concern that we want to have at the forefront of our thinking.

The societal consequences of the widespread roll out of distributed ledger technology (DLT) across the global economy

Major technological innovations, of which Blockchain is a conspicuous example, typically have disruptive consequences as the economy adjusts to new ways of doing things. Making sure the global economy is able to secure the benefits of the new technology while mitigating the inevitable disruption is a challenge all responsible Blockchain based enterprises need to take seriously.

The challenges raised by an ever-increasing reliance upon artificial intelligence (AI)

The importance of thinking through the ethical and legal implications of relying on AI is…

As a platform seeking to provide blockchain-based solutions to the world’s most pressing information security challenges, data privacy represents a prime use case for the IAP. Meanwhile, Blockliance, the first application to be built on the IAP seeks to provide more cost-effective ways for businesses to comply with regulations. Therefore, as a regulation that is aimed directly at data privacy, the roll out of GDPR — the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation — has been something we have been following very closely.

Very few people living in EU countries will have failed to notice the coming into effect of GDPR…

Blockliance is the first application to be built on the IAP platform, which you can read more about in our Introduction to IAP article. Focusing specifically on regulatory compliance, it provides an excellent illustration of the many use cases of the IAP platform. In this article, we will explain what it is, what challenges it addresses and why it is well positioned to capture a share of the multi-billion dollar GRC market.
