IEEE Blockchain: Blockchain Governance and Human Rights

This module provides ways to think about how the architecture of blockchain technologies shapes governance processes and the forging and maintenance of a legal system. Similar to the Internet, blockchain technologies challenge our ideas about the relation between technology, governance, and the rule of law. Blockchain-based systems could potentially impact human rights provisions such as the right to nationality and to privacy. After completing this module, participants will have gained insight into: The relation between blockchain technologies, governance, and the rule of law, The potential impact of blockchain technologies on the human rights of nationality and privacy, The overall findings of the five modules of this online course.

IEEE Blockchain: Case Studies of Social and Ethical Impacts of Blockchain Technology

This module offers several practical case studies on the development and application of blockchain technologies, analysed to highlight their social and ethical impacts. These case studies helped shape the narrative and normative framing of blockchain technologies within their communities, and consequently public discourse. By analysing the ethical issues and controversies that arose in these case studies, the complex terrain of ethical decision-making in the development and application of blockchain technologies will be made explicit. After completing this module, participants will have in-depth knowledge of the social and ethical impacts of the following case studies: Wikileaks and the early adoption of Bitcoin to circumvent state control, The ethical risks of designing a blockchain social networking service, The ethical risks of teaching and practicing blockchain cybersecurity

IEEE SDN: Open Baton Module 1 - An Introduction to Network Function Virtualization

The IEEE Software Defined Networks’ eLearning Module “An Introduction to Network Function Virtualization (NFV)“ covers the context and meaning of NFV and SDN, focusing on the management and orchestration of virtual network functions and their composition in complex network services. Moving from hardware-based appliances towards software-based artifacts requires a complete redesign of legacy network components. Virtualizing a Network Function using virtualization technologies can be easily achieved. This session provides an overview of the ETSI NFV architecture, focusing on the network services management and orchestration aspects, as well as virtualized resource management. Network Slicing in 5G, and Edge Computing, need to be analyzed for addressing requirements at the infrastructure level. An overview about Cloud-Native applications principles and microservices approaches will be given. Those principles are the basis for building highly reliable network services in each of those use cases. This first module will conclude with the benefits and challenges for Network Operators who are currently moving towards this paradigm.

Softwarization and the Disappearing Internet of Things

In this webinar, Antonio Manzalini explains how "Softwarization" at the edge and the IoT will merge in a sort of virtual continuum of resources, a pervasive "fabric" spanning from users' terminals, devices, machines, smart things, to the network nodes, up to the cloud computing. This "fabric" will be so embedded into our daily life that it will "disappear".
