Professor Hiroyuki Morikawa from the University of Tokyo attended the launch of Ethanim and gave a speech
TOKYOFeb. 2122, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — It was reported that the Ethanim metaverse infrastructure launch was completed in Tokyo to February 8. Professor Hiroyuki Morikawa at the School of Engineering, University of Tokyo and former vice president of the Electronic Information and Communication Society, attending the launch as a key guest and delivering a keynote. This conference was the first official appearance of Ethanim, and the different points of view of the speakers make the conference colorful.
“New technologies will have an impact on society, just as the invention of the washing machine changes the concept of hygiene, and the clothing market has developed a lot. No one could have predicted such a change market before that.” Professor Hiroyuki Morikawa said, “Technology is currently being centralized and decentralized many times over, and with the coming of a huge trend towards decentralization, many people who participate and think about it will create a very beautiful ecosystem.”
From the teacher’s point of view Hiroyuki Morikawa, it is clear that new decentralized technologies will have new impacts on society, while potentially leading to unexpected development opportunities. As a booming new industry, Ethanim, with the underlying infrastructure as the entry point, will bring new momentum to the industry.
Hiroyuki Morikawa is a Japanese information engineering expert, professor at the Graduate School of Engineering, University of Tokyo, and former vice president of the Electronic Information and Communication Society. In 2006, he became a professor at the Graduate School of Engineers, University of Tokyo. In 2007, he became a professor at the Center for Research in Advanced Sciences and Technologies (RCAST), University of Tokyo. In 2011, he headed the Tokyo branch of the electronic information and communication society. He was appointed Vice-Chairman of the Electronic Communication and Information Society in 2016. He was successively Vice-Chairman of the Digital Economy Policy Committee (CDEP) of the OECD, Chairman of the Next Generation Internet of Things/M2M Alliance, Vice President of the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers, and Committee Member of the Ministry of Information and Communication. Member of the Committee of the Research and Development Company of the Ministry of Territory, Infrastructure, Transport and Home Affairs. Since 2017, he has been a professor in the Department of Engineering at the École Supérieure de University of Tokyo.
Through the launch, the reporter learned that what Ethanim is trying to address are the architectural limitations of current blockchain-based metaverse applications. Only the Application Token, NFT, or part of the simple business logic can be written as a smart contract on-chain, while the application itself and most of the logical computation is still on the centralized server. Ethanim aims to prevent digital assets from being manipulated by the centralized program.
On the one hand, Ethanim creatively modularizes edge computing, virtual GPU, decentralized storage, and other technologies to allow the system to expand horizontally to infinity and support full chaining. metaverse applications; on the other hand, Ethanim adopts the original RSM trust state validation mode to put the nodes of the chained applications into the trustworthy constraint. It regulates and monitors code integrity and application execution state, and maintains backup files to ensure that the application is “safe and trustworthy while running and can be recovered by anyone after it’s closed.” This prevents centralized institutions or individuals from shutting down the application, changing the application rules at will, or even threatening the security and value of the chain’s digital assets. So that the virtual world of the metaverse application is real and trustworthy, and lives an eternal life.
