Blockchain: the Creation Spirit of “Avatar” ,Information Centric Network: Honed Base of “The World of Pandora”

By Dr. Kai LEI , Feb, 2018 (leik#pkusz.edu.cn), Peking University Shenzhen Graduate School

Recently, the Blockchain technology has been a buzz topic with countless comments and discussion, the concept and technology of Blockchain is deemed as complicated and mysterious to the majority, most of folks are unable to distinguish Blockchain from Bitcoin recognize Bitcoin and Blockchain and to figure out coin zone, chain zone and mine zone essentially, while the other pioneering majority take full use of the hotspot to conduct currency speculation and overseas ICO with zeal and expectation. The gradual understanding and acquaintance, along with the focus on the value and meaning of technology as well as distinct positive facet revealed in compliment articles published, drives me to share my thoughts feelings about Blockchain, I’m grateful for your inclusiveness to my deficiency.          

As a researcher who has been engaged in computer technologies and education, I have always felt both very lucky and stressful pressure, especially, the recent five years have witnessed the long-span advancement in information technology, such as cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence, future network technology future Internet, etc. This forces me to keep learning and renew knowledge even as a veteran, so as to take this opportunity to embrace the technology revolution, cultivate elites and make contributions, meanwhile, reveal the truth responsibly and accurately analyze the trend and direction with the awe to science all the time.         

When giving lectures to students or discussing with them together, I always exemplify to motivate them, the most important thing is to let them not only understand professional theories but also figure out the history and causes, background and the development direction behind of them. What I frequently mention is that “understand the present and the past, then to forecast about the future”, no matter how much of the latest technology and scientific knowledge you grasp today, it will eventually be outdated in the future. The real ability is that how you treat and deal with matters in with diverse ways of thinking after your graduation you graduate enduringly. The reason why most of them do not comprehend the newly emerging Blockchain lies in their absence of social and financial experience, for example, they have do never involved in stock trades and does not have have no too much idea of settlements, financial and economic matters related to with Blockchain. Therefore, some internal inner competition of simulated simulation stock trading exercises were arranged to deepen enhance their understanding feelings in the class. It is willing for them to It turns out that they are willing to accept the examples from popular entertainment works, such as classic movies and TV series relatively, which are is easier to be understood and resonated directly.  

Actually, many movies is suitable for students majoring in computer to look forward to the into the future blueprint of information technology development. “The Matrix” movie is frequently mentioned by me in earlier times, Keanu Reeves’ handsome appearance and his Chinese Kungfu alike dodging bullet shot impressed audience most. It is indeed the strongest scenario for future virtual reality. It is possible to be immortal with the advanced development of biotechnology and information technology in the future. What’s more, Additionally, the artistic conception of thinking can be freely shuttled between the real environment and the digital space, or can be attached to the carrier of mechanization and biology.you thinking is able to ramble around the real environment and digital space or attached to a mechanized, biological carrier to be all-powerful, how the world and cosmic Where will civilization of the world, even the universe evolves in the future with Internet of Everything?

Besides the 3D special effects of “Avatar” in 2010 brought by the magnificent and gorgeous “first year mileage” audio-visual feast in 2010, the connotation of Hollywood blockbuster story is worth pondering. The theme that always of “Avatar” revolves around controversy, evil, despair and redemption as always, besides, it is more about the worries of struggling of human from the encounter of environment and civilization, and the distillation of culture and philosophy. The progress of civilization, people’s desires, scheming and contradictions destroy the inherited kindness and the respect to nature. The Pandora Planet has already evolved a “braid” that is much advanced than the human computer due to the advanced technology and moral spirituality, while they still live in a primitive’s life with shabby clothes, the mix of which and hi-tech is totally inharmonious. Touluks, who are labeled as “barbarians” by human beings, show such distributed consensus, trust and strength. However, they lack the collective value and the supervision of credit transparency like Blockchain, but only oppressed and plundered ruthlessly by some invaders. These two kinds of people represent present a sharp contrast! In the future with highly developed science and technology and civilization. We need then to ask why: How is it possible for the post-Avatar civilization acts as the original ICO and creates a Ponzi scheme savagely and disorderly?

There are many introductions and a lot of practical knowledge of the blockchain, are available on the Internet. The generally accepted characteristic of Blockchain includes: decentration, disintermediation, distributed ledger, non-tampering, traceable, smart contract, zero-knowledge proof, DAG (Directed Acyclic Graph), mining,etc.  One book “Blockchain Tutorial” by Yuan Yifeng simply introduces several key points of Blockchain technology to help you get start. Absolutely, you’d better read Nakamoto’s papers and source code of bitcoin for deeper understanding and researching, the experience of constructing Blockchain system including token is especially needed to see how it works. 

1. Blockchain is not so mysterious and out of thin air

Blockchain has its history, in short, it is the underlying technology of Bitcoin, which is gradually excavated with the development of Bitcoin, a solution that can solve the reliable transfer of credit value in a decentration or weak centralization scenario under an open environment. Blockchain technology is an integrated solution with a variety of common technology so it is equipped with numerous nice characteristics. However, it can’t be overstated. After all, it is still in its early stage and it takes long time to grow mature. For instance, smart contract is considered to executive automatically by established rules, but its intelligence can’t be exaggerated. While there will be large room for the future research and promotion of Blockchain technology, for example, the combination of artificial intelligence reveals endless imagination.

I do agree with the Professor Zhang Shousheng from Stanford University, who fully explicits his idea on the book “ Blockchain is the New Turning Point in Internet World”. The world history can be described as the saying in “Romance of The Three Kingdoms”, that is, this world will separate after long time united. Also will do the opposite after long time spliting. The internet also abides by this rules, any application of large-scale information technology is featured by numerous forms, such as, centralization, distributed form and coordinated distributed form, etc. Therefore, fog computing followes by cloud computing, edge computing derives from data center.

2. Blockchain is not omnipotent superman who can solve all problems

For this aspect, Blockchain is confronted with its technical bottleneck. For instance, it is impossible for the virtual currency in Blockchain with Bitcoin included to act as currency in circulation within short time for its huge circulation, which is unavailable for the current technology to process efficiently. Meanwhile, the online Blockchain is unable to solve the offline problems, such as, the traceability, verification and anti-counterfeiting of various application is conducted based on its non-tampering and traceable features, Blockchain guarantees the on-chain data, while still faces the off-chain loopholes without strict regulations.

For example, you put the Moutai’s anti-counterfeiting data on the chain, and the Block chain can only guarantee the reliability of it, Blockchain is unable to distinguish without combination of offline management if you change the wine into water. It is inaccessible for Blockchain to directly resolve the problem of information isolation without totally access of  every trade system. One common example is, Blockchain has no idea of your medical record before the local medical databases dock with each other, once they do, Blockchain can indeed greatly reinforce the practical value of the data circulation.

3. Not all problems need to be solved by Blockchain

The system cost of Blockchain is very high, including time cost, energy consumption, calculation and storage cost, which is an aggregation of distributed storage, distributed consensus, cryptography and data secrecy technology. A portion of its characteristics and functions are used for numerous applications, so it is not necessary to obtain an overall Blockchain Platform. It is grudging for Blockchain if it is adopted to resolve some problems, and it is indeed “make a fuss over a trifle”. For instance, it is more reasonable and efficient for an enterprise to perform centralized processing and supervisory management via terrific organizational structure and processing management without the cross-system, cross-value and cross-trade requirements. Currently, Blockchain is divided into private chain, consortium chain and public chain, it is necessary to customize the analysis according to the timing scenario and tradeoff between the cost and the benefit when facing the selection scheme needed by applications.

Generally speaking, the opener the scenario lies, the closer the application suits for public chain, the Blockchain will be more useful and thorough. The choice of different distributed consensus algorithms is also particular, In general, the safer and less risky scenarios, such as the private chain, will confront better credit base of the members and the low probability of the potential attack, so it is accessible to make a consensus among some core nodes( not all network codes) to speed up the executive efficiency. It is not easy to construct public chain, Not only in terms of technology, in the robust design of anti-attack, it requires deep technical strength and research accumulation. But also, in terms of scalability, Bitcoin has become the most successful public chain application, which is directly related to its long online time and large scale. The more nodes involved in the consensus, the greater the power, the stronger the overall fault tolerance of the system. Basically, a public blockchain application without scale guarantee and full consensus coordination is less significant, so it is better to use centralization, clouded and hierarchical architecture directly.

4. Token is the real diamond, it is the vision of Blockchain which is worthy expecting

It must be noted that Blockchain technology can be replaced by other technologies without Token, so what’s it’s unique charm lies in blockchain? Definitely, it is Token! Token initially used in the field of network communication technology, in order to avoid network congestion and control scheduling, it originally refers to the “signaling “, similar to the traffic lights, only when the Token-like pass certificate is activated, corresponding data packets will be transmitted according to the instructions.

However, “Token” is literally translated in the semantic background of Blockchain in many written materials, in which, it was affected by Bitcoin, virtual currency or digital currency, while this interpretation is improper. Blockchain, an infrastructure for trading and circulation, its Token can represent the integral, privilege and usufruct, meanwhile, it can undertake rights quantifiable value, that is to say with the advancement of digital process, more future digital assets can undertook by Token via the fine-grained quantifiable value.

 So why this is fine-grained quantified value so important? This topic needs to be thoroughly understood from the existing and future social organization models, or from the collaborative model level. Human civilization includes material civilization and spiritual civilization. Civilization can also refer to human evolution from the inanimate barbaric behavior of animals, and the establishment of a fair and regular society with wisdom, such as Chinese civilization, ancient Indian civilization, Greek civilization and Egyptian civilization. Wait. Steam engines, electric motors, computers and nuclear reactors have created a new monument of “humanized nature” in every scientific revolution. The unprecedented development of science and technology and social productivity has profoundly changed the future ecological civilization. In the movie “Avatar”, Cameron’s depiction of Pandora’s planet, in the final analysis, is a natural brain far beyond human wisdom. Freedom of communism and fairness, fairness and shared wisdom of sharing, surpassing human high technology.

Why do many people think that Blockchains will subvert social relations in the future and lead to changes in production relations? The most crucial thing is to understand that the Token quantifiable value of fine-grained is able to construct more reasonable distribution system so as to reinforce the closer coordination and division work between diverse aspects of civilization, meanwhile, to form the multiple and multi-level incentive social relations based on credibility. The so-called “Relations of production” is decided by productivity, AI and Big Data has already ushered advanced productivity, so it is inevitable that Token will realize the communism and sharing productivity. Actually, this theory is not new, so I always tell my students that the Blockchain leaded by The Communist Party is the authentic path to realize communist economic model. The future is foreseeable, if you truly comprehend the connotation of Blockchain. How to effectively allocate and distribute according to work performance, the premise is the overwhelming abundance of productivity while establishing reliable distributed rules, that is to say, there should be no monopoly, such as, Wechat gains countless advertisement benefits from your Wechat moments but never spare you a cent, why you publicize the advertisements on your moments hopingly but without any advertisement fee returned?

Perhaps not only because Tencent is unwilling to do so, but also because the complicated high cost to calculate your gains. Openness is a kind of mind also of ability. The reason why the ICO chaos need to be powerfully regulated, it goes to the new technology and sophisticated model which requires government’s management. Nevertheless, there also exists such opinion: currency is the foundation of society rules, the currency rights is the base of government. If government lost its base, it will be in idle. In my point of view, it is a feudal-minded, which limited within the existing thought box and neglect the development of society. Meanwhile, science and technology are the primary productive force, it is unreasonable to ignore its effect and behave as a feudalist in a republic society. It is promising to embrace the depicted future blueprint explicated in a report by ICO in Shenzhen SZCCF with the implementation of means and methods to thorough regulation by government.

I asked the students many times whether Ali Group promoted the market economy or hindered its further enhancement. They reach a consensus that all these problems need to be viewed dialectically with the background and the analysis of the era background. In the early development period of internet and e-commerce, Ali definitely made internet and economy prosper, and customers gain benefits from the convenience of which. While from the later stage, “Double-Eleventh Promotion” of Ali each year hits the record, it is also an interpretation of a new centralized mode. It is foreseeable that the right distribution system of fine grained quantifiable Token conceals the dazzling civilization to the future Pandora World.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, still have a long way to go

Moving back to the technology itself, it is true that current Blockchain technology is still at an early stage, Inevitably, it is confronted with system problems such as efficiency, security, computing and cost, which already exists before however more crucial for Blockchain. Essentially, it is caused by the infrastructure of the Internet. IP Internet has not considered security issues in its design since its inception, while the following 60 years’ improvements only suppress the symptom without treating the condition. The core is the three problems of current IP internet architecture listed as below:

1. Binding of Identity and Location

In other words, it is the binding of users and the Internet. Users are supposed to get an IP address before networking. However, this address not only reveals users’ location (the work base of LBS) but also impedes the roaming and mobility, which makes attacks easy to reach their   targets. The WannaCry Bitcoin virus (in May, 2017) sweeps the campus or enterprises only if one of their intranet node is poisoned. Meanwhile, for the attacker, its payment address conceals itself, so a lot of antivirus and pursuit methods are controlled and tracked via the IP address.

2. Binding of Control and Transmission

Binding of Control and Transmission is binding of data resources and transmitting entity, which causes much unnecessary consumption includes computing resource, network resource, and especially, energy. For example, a single file sharing application once occupied about two-thirds education network traffic in the original P2P Maze Skynet on IP. The reason is the superimposed user data transmit between each other repeatedly with end-to-end path, the Beijing Youku server sends the data to Shenzhen which already existed in Shenzhen server, but why do not just take to use directly? This is unable to be coped with CDN, which only solve the problems in data center and application layer with high redundancy and price. Thus, fully demonstrating the reason why the income of live video and VOD is considerable but with small gains. Only magnates participated in and the CDN company is the biggest winner. More tragically, operators become fully occupied channels, they have no idea of charging because their audit of data is inaccessible to payers. One solution is insert the cache into network, which also serves as the core conception of Information Centric Network. However, Common demands should be satisfied at the network layer. Meanwhile, the bottom of Blockchain is also a p2p network with similar problems.

It is inaccessible for IP network to distinguish data owners, while the security of data transmission is guaranteed by the security of the connection between this two parties, similar to the transmission of natural gas, once the pipe leaks, the disaster happens. At the beginning, the network is limited in computing ability, the underlying network is unable to undertake much tasks, where the design principle is the simpler, the better.

With the development of hardware, the IPSec and VPN are included in IP protocol, but it still has its defects. Especially when current network is evolving distributed, 5G, multi network and multi-protocol functionalize together and combine with each other. Synchronous transmission of multi-link could be available, but the reality is IP conducts routing first and make rules based on the prepared path, similar to railway traffic which is in accordance with control and transmission of tracks, rigid and inflexible. On the other hand, data security and identity is unreachable if the secure mode of IP is free from channel.

As a leading future network architecture, Named Data Networking is originally designed with public and private key encryption of all the data in the network, which is consistent with the concept of Bitcoin and Blockchain. As a digital asset, It is a must to ensure the data security during authentication, trading and settlement, which is also the key for Blockchain to construct valuable Internet. However, it is inappropriate for application layer to solve these problems. In the final analysis, the underlying network infrastructure is less advanced.

ICN Infrastructure: the Foundation of Blockchain Technology to be Mature, the Honed Base of “The World of Pandora”

The Internet has become a pivotal infrastructure to support the modern productivity and to promote the development of the future social civilization. The development speed of Internet scale is beyond people’s imagination, where the content of Internet is increasing explosively, and this trend is accelerating. The future network put more emphasis on establishing Information Centric Network, whose main function is to meet the requirements of efficient, large-scale and secure content acquisition, sharing and distribution. The traditional IP network architecture adopts the design concept from the birth of network in 1960s, while its communication model is Location-Based, which only satisfies the transmission from end to end.

This inconsistency dedicates to several problems, especially the data exchanges between the various types of network, Traditional Internet based on TCP/IP protocol is facing increasing tough technical challenge and exposes prodigious inadaptability in network scalability, security, reliability, flexibility and mobility.

In the first school day of 2018, I told my students that you should not only focus on your research field, but also need knowledge reserve of other directions. Interdisciplinary and intercross promotion has become normal in modern society, If there is a point, at least Future Network, Blockchain and Knowledge Graph ( artificial intelligence technology based on text data processing), is the iron triangle of current knowledge system. In general, the future network, Blockchain and knowledge Graph all solve content-oriented distributed network, which takes graph as logical structure, and system computing. ICN network architecture aims to the transmission, forwarding, storage and computing of network content in the graph of computer network. Blockchain technology points at the security and reliability of trading data and account book in distributed graph structure of Blockchain. Knowledge Graph researches on the content processing, representation and analysis of natural language in structure of knowledge graph.

I have been involving in the “Tianwang Maze”(once it is the biggest educational P2P file sharing application) for many years and worked in America Citi Group in 1999. Thus, having foresighted vision on the development of computer and financial. In 2014, I opened the course of “The Internet Finance and Technology” and advanced courses in Shenzhen Graduate School of Peking University. Then in 2015, I felt that Blockchain is a typical distributed computer technology similar to p2p, which is able to profoundly change many pain points in financial industries, such as, payment, settlement, transaction and voucher management. Hence, I started to pay attention to the research with several students, and organized many reports, forums and lectures (including present in 2017 and 2018 Hurun New Finance Report as academic guest)

Therefore, our ICNLAB organized the “2017 Future ICN Forum” on 26th, June, 2017, with three forums, main forum (ICN), Knowledge Graph sub-forum and Blockchain sub-forum. Chinese Academy of Engineering academician Liu Yunjie gave a talk, where he clarified that the Internet is gradually changed from research type to consumption type, and to production type in terms of network function. The first generation of Internet focuses on the military and scientific research, the second generation is e-commerce represented by the World Wide Web, and now it is going into the third generation, that is, the future network. At present, the Internet is facing unprecedented challenges, such as scalability, security and mobility and so on, so it is imperative to usher new network architecture.

Future network infrastructure is of great significance to innovative research and development of new network architecture, system scheme, key technologies and core equipment in the future.For example, IEN: “Intelligent Eco Networking” which aims to build an Advanced Future Internet of intelligence for Digital Social Economic Ecosystem. It will provide necessary experimental verification conditions for the research of space network, optical network and quantum communication network, and will lead the development direction of domestic future network to strength our leading position in the world communication field. Looking into the future, ICN Infrastructure will be the foundation of Blockchain Technology to be Mature and the honed base of “The World of Pandora”.

Blockchain White Paper: the Victory Twilight of Unobtanium in Pandora Plannet

The white paper is generally a technical document officially launched by an organization. A white paper for a blockchain project is a bulletin for the project team to showcase innovative ideas, business models, team capabilities, technical strength, and development prospects to the market. It is an important basis for evaluation. Many of the white papers that have been handed over from the past are all depicting huge concepts, stacking a lot of high-sounding advanced technologies, or describing algorithms and models that can be easily understood by ordinary non-professionals. What is wrong, who is good, who is bad, flicker or plagiarism? How long can I deliver? It is difficulty to recognize its authenticity, merits and demerits, or the realization time, even its technical and competitive risks.

The purpose of HotICN 2018 was to organize the TPC (Technical Program Committee) by international well-known scholars, experts and officers from celebrated technology company, to pick up the universally accepted White Papers with academic and commercial value from numerous Blockchain White Papers via the Peer Review mode of internal academic circle. Meanwhile, the accepted industry papers must be presented at conference according to the IEEE rules, those dare to demonstrate to the public and face the challenge is probably deemed as authentic entrepreneur, creator and leader, thus further ensure the reliability and credibility of project. Besides, “one month development of Blockchain equals to one year of traditional market”, with such fast pace, it is a kind of protection of creative property right. The outstanding White Paper can be retrieved by EI around the world to open the door to prosperity and victory.

The Mutual-benefit Vigorous Fantasia of “Interstellar Civilization”-Interconnection between Human and Machine

With the rapid development of cognitive computing, Internet of Everything, robotics, and life sciences, the future society can bring infinite flaws: Terminator, Dimensional Hacker, Source Code, Inception, Star Trek, Artificial Intelligence, and so on. Humans may no longer be the only intelligent living beings in the galaxy. The interaction between people and machines is becoming increasingly frequent and close,  to some extent, it is subverting or reinventing life, social and reproduction of human beings. It is imagined that human is no longer the only one on earth without a natural enemy nor is it the center and master of civilization in the future. It is surprising that AlphaGo easily defeat human beings with machine intelligence with big data, Moreover, Alpha Go Zero beat the super chess player AlphaGo without any help of historical chess manual or human experience in 2-year self study. The interconnection between human beings and machine, even the non-mechanized intelligent living organisms and outer space life bodies may somehow makes us feel incredible.

Openness and reciprocity are the inevitable way for people, machines, things and foreign countries to lead the future super-social civilization. The future of mankind will coexist with a variety of production contributors, and the civilization of cooperation and win-win is an inevitable development trend. The harmonious co-existence between human and nature is the essence of development, the harmonious thrive refers to the overall harmony between species, life organisms and non-living substance. The decentralization of the blockchain is not an absolute “de” but a relative “construct”. It is necessary for the future vigorous civilization to be realized based on the construction of individuals/nodes centric co-operative coordinated foundation, which joint participants are entitled to benefit and share the benefits equally. The basic protocol of IP Internet enables the world to get the basic freedom of information transmission, but without the liberty to real data, value, identity and transaction, to reliability, security and verification, to credibility and traceability. While the blockchain offers the reciprocal and open path of authentic Cyber digital society to the public, which is able to ensure value and credibility. It is the intelligent agreement and rules via distributed consensus that establish powerful productivity based fine-grained quantization to distribute the relations of production in accordance with demand, performance and rights. Actually, this may drive the overall network space to form super large distributed computing system, which is indeed a “centralized brain” or “brain chain”. The popularity of blockchain technology will undoubtedly accelerate the executive speed of basic ecological protocol of natural evolution of the “survival of the fittest”, which will speed up the innovation and prosperity of future social civilization. The symbiotic prosperous “brain chain” civilization must rely on mutual trust consensus, communism and mutual benefit, coordination and sharing, its thoughts and rules are breaded by Blockchain technology, which is the Creation Spirit of “Avatar” civilization, based on the current society, ICN is the honed base of “The World of Pandora”. As an educational researcher, I hope everyone can join to explore the development path of Blockchain technology and the theoretical foundation of flourishing ecological civilization in the future. At the same time I also call for the industry and academia to work together to resist the chaos, share responsibility and pioneer the advanced technologies like Blockchain.
