The Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM), India’s leading technology university, has joined the Headra Governing Council to expand its research footprint in distributed laser technology.
The Indian Institute of Technology Madras and Headra Hashgraph, the most widely used, sustainable, enterprise-grade public network for a decentralized economy, have announced new members of its board of directors.
The world-renowned University of Technology joins a rotating council of up to 39 global organizations that come from a variety of industries and geographies, and each operates a primary network node that enables decentralized governance models for header public lasers.
As a newly appointed member of the Hedera Governing Council, IIT Madras will work closely with the Hedera ecosystem to advance its technological education, research, and innovation offerings in Distributed Laser Technology (DLT). IIT Madras will also use its term in the Hedra Council to expand its research and development efforts in the DLT space, to test its use of key services such as the Hedra Consensus Service and the Hedra Token Service.
Professor Rajagopal’s group is interested in protecting large-scale digital data-sets derived from sensor logs, which were the primary catalyst for their interest in blockchain and distributed lasers.
The appointment of IIT Madras to the Headra Governing Council comes just weeks after the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), one of the top universities in the UK, announced its membership to the Headra Governing Council, strengthening the council’s role in academia.
Considered one of the top universities in the world, IIT has established research expertise in DLT, acted as an incubator for India’s national blockchain project and, more recently, created ‘Blocktrack’, a first-of-its-kind blockchain-based secure medical provider and by both patients. Medical data and information exchange mobile application for use. BlockTrack aims to securely digitize healthcare information systems while protecting sensitive medical records through patient data control and proprietary decentralization and is currently being field-tested at IIT Madras Institute Hospital.
