Blockchain + RFID = Total Lifecycle Product Management
LAUREN S. ROMAN, Managing Director, TransparentPlanet:
2017 is panning out to become ‘The Year of Blockchain’. Largely unheard of until 2016, The authors of The Blockchain Revolution call blockchains ‘incorruptible digital ledgers of economic transactions that can be programmed to record transactions involving virtually everything of value. RFID and other auto-ID is an integral part of blockchain technology, identifying and validating each node along supply chains.
This session will introduce opportunities for blockchain and RFID to meet the growing demand for responsible, sustainable products by tracking materials from creation to recovery at end of life. It will include an open discussion of how the RFID industry might approach this opportunity.
