As a partner in the ARCHANGEL project we are delighted that the paper ARCHANGEL: Tamper-proofing Video Archives using Temporal Content Hashes on the Blockchain has just won the Best Blockchain Application Award at the prestigious Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition aka CVPR conference.
ARCHANGEL responds to the urgent need of safeguarding archives in a rapidly changing, digital world. Whilst people often consider digital records safer than hard copies, digital data is much more fragile and at risk. ARCHANGEL creates assurances of digital record integrity using distributed ledger technology (Blockchain).
For those who want to know more about the project and the application of blockchain technology to archives there is an excellent video which gives an overview here.
