Robonomics protocol

Industry 4.0 concept illustration

The Fourth Industrial Revolution will bring human-to-machine interactions to high-level communication based on market liabilities.

In human-machine systems robonomics protocol allows combining economical and technical parts of communication into one transaction. Thus, we get the protocol, which accomplishes the function, more than just information exchange. We get the protocol establishing an agreement about cooperative business processes between humans and machines.

With the help of robonomics protocol it’s possible to control planetary supply chains using economic theory methods.

Robonomics protocol for society

Robonomics protocol levels up transparency and traceability of goods and services produced by machines. Meanwhile, implementation control of machines’ liabilities detaches from for-profit IT companies, which are partners of producers.

Smart society with robots and automation life

With the help of robonomics protocol Ethereum network validators can check fulfillment of machines’ liabilities. This is economic arbitrage based on economic game.

Robonomics protocol for business

There is no need to search for a reliable mediator, whom every participant of chain can trust, to provide security, information exchange and data storage.

Blockchain for business as a supply chain based on robonomics protocol

Information appears in supply chain based on robonomics protocol and creates additional value for a consumer owing to increasing of production transparency.

Robonomics protocol for science

We work on the ground zero of economic cybernetics, which describes an opportunity to control complex human-machine systems with the help of economic theory. Our work is based on ideas of Norbert Wiener, Ronald Coase and Victor Glushkov.

We are filling up the ideas of this talented people with our experiments in building direct interactions between humans and machines. This way, using theory and experiments we develop a standard of high-level human-machine communication.

The future offers very little hope for those who expect that our new mechanical slaves will offer us a world in which we may rest from thinking. Help us they may, but at the cost of supreme demands upon our honesty and our intelligence.

The world of the future will be an ever more demanding struggle against the limitations of our intelligence, not a comfortable hammock in which we can lie down to be waited upon by our robot slaves.

Outside the firm, price movements direct production, which is co-ordinated through a series of exchange transactions on the market. Within a firm, these market transactions are eliminated and in place of the complicated market structure with exchange transactions is substituted the entrepreneur-coordinator, who directs production.

It is clear that these are alternative methods of coordinating production. Yet, having regard to the fact that, if production is regulated by price movements, production could be carried on without any organization at all might we ask, why is there any organization?

Manufacturing keystone of tomorrow will be robot-factories. But they will be a far cry from that automatic production which we can see today. The present factories of such a type are designed for stable, not changing goods,such as cement, bread, dairy, etc. To change something in the technology or to change produced goods, such a factory has to be completely stopped.

Moving forward to avoid this problem the work of such factories should be designed not under mechanical principal but under cybernetic one. What’s that supposed to mean?

The heart of manufacturing at such a factory will be automatic lines created on the base of processing units with program control.

Why are you talking about economic communication? Indeed it’s possible to use smart contracts and blockchain technology for building any forms and types of human-machine communication.

We see that humans need a high-level communication protocol to interact with machines. It’s difficult to teach a machine to understand ordinary humans’ communications. But it’s quite a different story to teach a machine to realize usual for humans economic processes such as: market transaction, contract liability and property passage. It should be enough to organize high-level human-to-machine communication.
