On September 22nd, GTA Gene Data Storage and Application Summit was grandly launched in Chaohu city of Anhui province. The event brought together celebrities, Nobel scientists, experts and scholars in the field of gene technology and data storage, sparking heated discussions on application of genetic big data and AI, gene data encryption and storage, human health and other relevant issues.
The summit was presented by Hon. Henry Palaszczuk former politician of Queensland of Australia & chairman of the GTA Foundation; Mr. George Fitzgerald Smoot III, Nobel laureate in physics & GTA Foundation artificial intelligence scientist; Mr. Alex Wang, one of the China’s top ten young scientists & founder of YottaChain, GTA Foundation encryption storage scientist; Mr. Li Yunming, chairman of the GTA Alliance & chairman of Anhui Yunchao Group; Mr. Zhu Shimao, a Chinese famous actor. They respectively delivered keynote speeches at the summit.
Large Volume of genetic data could steer biomedical research towards a new direction, while it also presents challenges to big data storage and data collection in richer databases. How to generate more genetic data? How to ensure these data are stored securely? And how to make these data deliver value in a way that each participant can benefit from it? These problems can be smoothly solved by GTA, thanks to its advanced technology on sequencing and decoding and professional public chain data storage and encryption technology in cryptography field.
Hon. Henry Palaszczuk, chairman of the GTA Foundation
Hon.Henry Palaszczuk made a speech on “Genetic Data Storage Leads the Change of Era”, in which he mentioned by leveraging the unique block-chain incentive mechanism, GTA encourages more individuals to participate in gene sequencing and storage. Adhering to the principles of collaboration, security, sharing, and authentic right, GTA rapidly integrates individual users, gene sequencing companies, medical, pharmaceutical, health services, and other data applications on one platform, as a result of which more individuals and businesses can get involved in the genetic data gold mine. These efforts will have a profound implication on exploring life mysteries, seeking complex truth of life, and advancing the development of biopharmaceuticals, precision medicine and genetic research. In this connection, GTA will become a world leader driving the development of genetic technology.
He pointed out personal genome-wide data can bring single application value to GTA, which will double with the increase of use number. As increasingly more individuals get involved in genetic data storage, GTA will enjoy a remarkable premium.
GTA is highlighted by its artificial intelligence technology. Mr. George Fitzgerald Smoot III (George Smoot) explains how the collision of genetic science and advanced technology opens up a wider range of applications in his speech entitled “Artificial Intelligence Boosts Genetic Technology Development.”
Mr. George Fitzgerald Smoot III expressed GTA blazed a trail to solve the current deficiency of human genome data by combining gene technology and block-chain technology, which is a great cause that mankind should strive to achieve. The fusion of artificial intelligence and genetic science will lead to the emergence of artificial intelligence is familiar with gene mystery. These achievements will completely change the future of mankind. With the help of artificial intelligence deep learning algorithms, genetic science will gain unlimited traction unseen before.
He is convinced that GTA enjoys many advantages in gene sequencing technology, gene decoding technology, gene data storage technology, commercial closed-loop advantage, and uniqueness of incentive mechanism, can become a vehicle for all conceptions, and the collision between artificial intelligence technology and GTA will produce lots of surprises and miracles.
Mr. Alex Wang gave a speech themed with “Encrypted Storage of Genetic Data.” Alex reckoned genetic data belongs to highly sensitive personal privacy and highly valuable commercial secret. Their users should preserve them for a long term, avoid data leakage during use, and employ cryptographic methods instead of physical media for security. YottaChain can guarantee the absolute security of GTA gene data storage in the commercial sense thanks to technology of zero-knowledge encryption, seamless encryption, full-encryption and perfect key management. At the same time, the exclusive TruPrivacy patented technology can realize “cross-user de-duplication”, which will ensure data sovereignty of users while lowering storage cost.
As a leading company in genetic technology in China and a member of GTA Alliance, Anhui Yunchao Group plays a vital role in the whole project. Mr. Li Yunming delivered a speech on “Genetic Technology Brings Human Health”, in which he said gene sequencing is the best way to unravel the mysteries of life. In recent years, with the development of gene sequencing technology, the importance of gene data storage has become more prominent. At the same time, genetic technology is also fraught with pain points and challenges, which are calling for technology innovation and revolution. GTA broke the ground by applying block-chain technology in genetic data storage, riding on the trend of block-chain technology + physical industry. Among the first alliance members to join GTA, Yunchao Group is specialized in personal whole genome sequencing, genetic data decoding, and genetic data storage.
During the conference, there is a signing ceremony among the GTA Foundation, Australia QLM Company, Yunchao Group and Hubei Mingde Investment Group was also held. GTA Foundation chairman Hon.Henry Palaszczuk, Australian QLM chairman assistant Mr.Vincent Yu, Yunchao Group chairman Mr. Li Yunming, and Hubei Mingde Investment Group chairman Mr. Feng Boyu signed the agreement, which marks a solid step in GTA’s global strategy.
As a well-known actor, Zhu Shimao’s arrival has set off a small climax for the conference. He talked the storage and interpretation of genetic data will promote the development of genetic technology, but the current coverage is still narrow, and the human gene pool data is scarce. He motivated more individuals and institutions to participate in order to promote the development of genetic science, precision medicine, bio-pharmaceutical and relevant fields.
The audience was thrilled at connotation and essence of the GTA project, as well as the unlimited future of genetic data storage and application depicted in these speeches.
