Proof of Useful Work: Flux Powers Another Medical App.
Flux demonstrates computational resources in Web3 can do more Useful Work….again.
Sustainability, Environmental Impact, and Efficiency. These were the fundamentals behind Flux’s deep dive into the Proof of Useful Work consensus model. In May 2022, Flux announced a collaboration with the Western Switzerland University of Applied Sciences in Geneva (HES).
The partnership would explore the potential of PoUW and how resources from mining rigs and GPU cards could be channeled toward solving real-life problems. (In case you missed it, here is an in-depth article).
As momentum continues to build towards unveiling the Flux roadmap for 2023 and pending plans for PoUW, Flux is proud to announce the deployment of another App that uses Flux nodes as a useful case in Medical Technology.
X-ray/CT diagnosis with AI is a web-based AI application that uses abnormal sections of CT scans and X-ray sections to predict possible disease. While still in its Alpa stage, the program can also explain the basis for prediction and help classify the priority level of patients in the Emergency room.
After uploading, patients’ data are immediately encrypted and automatically deleted once the prediction is over to maintain privacy. In a Tweet, the developer, Samer Rahmeh, shares his plan to deploy more DApps on Flux to showcase how Web3 can play a role in Useful Work. He also asserts Flux PoUW will be a game changer for Machine Learning engineers.
The newly launched application is an essential win for Flux, PoUW, and the future of blockchain technology for several reasons.
One, because it demonstrates how the computational capabilities FluxNodes can be deployed to solve societal problems besides mining. Secondly, it underlines how Flux and Blockchain technology can play a significant role in other sectors (in this case, the health sector) and how decentralized technologies are vital in preserving users’ data security and privacy. (This article from last year details how Web3 is revolutionizing the healthcare sector.)
As the world continues to embrace artificial intelligence, blockchain technology will ultimately ride on the wings of AI to create even more innovative solutions.
At Flux, we are already at the frontlines. In 2021, we partnered with Folding@homes ( a company that utilizes protein-folding for medical research) to fight against Covid-19. Machine learning models, Medical Research projects, and many other innovations rely on enormous computational resources; a Flux network of nodes can be the answer.
