Dataism is a concept that stresses the increasing relevance of data as technology evolves further, and that data, when shared, benefits the world more than when data is worked on in silos.
Markus Levin, co-founder and head of operations at XYO, a crypto-network that anonymously collects and validates geospatial data, contends that dataism has far-reaching consequences in the freight industry.
“We call it the truth in data, and a part of what we do at XYO is to tell you if data is true and correct. Let’s say you use a traditional GPS on the truck and thus you aren’t sure if the truck is actually in the said location, or if the temperature within the truck is not above 40 degrees. With our technology, you can verify the data, and we wrap the data in a cryptographically secure way, so that it can’t be tampered,” said Levin.
