Gartner: Blockchain is listed in the top ten strategic technology trends of 2020, against one of the highlights of deepfake

Recently, Gartner, a well-known consulting firm, released the top ten strategic technology trends in 2020 at the Gartner Symposium in Orlando, USA, including the Practical Blockchain. Gartner pointed out that blockchain can be used to build trust and transparency. To achieve value exchange across business ecosystems, reduce costs, reduce transaction time and improve cash flow, etc. In addition, blockchain assets can be used to trace sources, greatly reducing the chances of counterfeit replacement, and also have applications in industries such as identity management. potential.

In addition, Dart Plummer, vice president and researcher at Gartner, also predicted the blockchain industry in 2020 and beyond at the seminar. He said:

"In two years, at least 10 major news organizations will use blockchain technology to combat deepfake video manipulation. By 2023, nearly 30% of global news and video content will be certified through blockchain."

The so-called deepfake refers to the use of artificial intelligence technology to produce video content, which can achieve the effect of false and real, so that people can not distinguish the authenticity by the naked eye.

Since this year, deepfake video technology has gradually become known to the public. After Facebook refused to remove Nancy Pelosi’s drunken deepfake video in June, Facebook’s Instagram appeared on Facebook’s Facebook CEO Mark. · "Zuckerberg" spoof video, "Little Zha" in the video said: "Let's quickly imagine a person, holding the privacy information of the billions of people stolen, including their All secrets, life and future, etc… I attribute it to the Spectre, who tells me who has the data and who controls the future."


(Actually, this is not a video recorded by Zuckerberg himself, but a deepfake forged video)

Plummer pointed out that robot-controlled social media accounts and fake news attract more viewers than real news, which is undoubtedly frightening, saying:

“To do this, IT organizations must work with content production teams to build and track the source of enterprise-generated content using blockchain technology.”

This will not only involve political issues, Imagine how a mouse deepfake video will damage the chain store market? In 2014, a real mouse video of the Duncan Donuts store in New York was featured in the headlines. The store was quickly closed and its owner was sued.

In addition, deepfake poses a greater threat to the female community, and more than 90% of the related fake videos involve pornography.

In addition to deepfake, Gartner believes that blockchain will also revolutionize the payments arena.

Although Facebook's Libra Stabilizer project has suffered a lot of trouble, according to Plummer, by the end of 2020, major online markets and social media platforms will begin to support cryptocurrency payments.

Plummer added that by 2025, half of the world's poor will use the cryptocurrency account service provided by the global digital platform.

Brian Burke, another vice president of Gartner, told attendees that the blockchain has the potential to reshape the industry.

He said:

“Blockchain will do this by building trust, providing transparency and transacting value across business ecosystems, potentially reducing costs, reducing transaction settlement time and improving cash flow.”

Earlier this year, Gartner predicted that by 2021, 90% of the enterprise blockchain platform will be replaced, and the company also said that by 2025, the business value added by the blockchain is expected to grow to 176 billion. The dollar, and by 2030, this number will rise to $3.1 trillion.
