More on Numbers' Framework

Numbers framework contains 3 main layers viz. infrastructure, data control, and applications.

Numbers SDKs leveraged mobile Apps create data with unique fingerprints. These fingerprints are generated using metadata, such as GPS location, timestamp, network provider, mobile model, etc. This fingerprint is registered onto the blockchain so it is immutable. Subsequent changes to the data are also logged to the blockchain. Further, the Verification platform utilizes Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to detect changes to the content and allow analysis near data origin.

Numbers has created an integrity assurance data framework. The company claims to be working with IBM, Stanford University, National Taiwan University and HTC Exodus (a blockchain-powered smartphone), notes the announcement.
