AIM Creates Blockchain Council

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania | August 7, 2018 | AIM, the trusted worldwide industry association for the automatic identification industry, providing unbiased information, educational resources and standards for nearly half a century, announced today the creation of a new Blockchain workgroup dedicated to explore the emerging technology’s place in the future of the automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) industry.

The AIM Blockchain Council (ABC) will be chaired by John Greaves, RF, IoT, & Blockchain Solutions Architect for Lowry Solutions.  The group will investigate the opportunities and challenges in utilizing blockchain applications with AIDC technologies, such as IoT and RFID, to improve the traceability, reliability, and security of information.

"The momentum to incorporate blockchain in a growing number of business sectors isn't an accident," said AIM Chief Operating Officer Mary Lou Bosco.  "Our goal is to offer an unbiased resource that will be positioned to not only share knowledge,  but show the value between blockchain and the use of AIDC technologies.  We anticipate seeing the collaborative efforts of the experts in the group provide opportunities for a diverse global audience."

Individuals interested in participating in this new initiative are asked to contact Mike Allen, AIM Member Engagement Manager. The initial meeting of the group is expected to take place via a web conference in early fall.
