First off, it is fantastic to be able to see and comment on the 4th Plan on Open Government. This collaboration and transparency is refreshing.

It was interesting to find limited to no mention of blockchain and distributed ledger technology.

With a heightened importance of data collection from IOT and acting upon that data from AI systems, there is little in the way of preventing the garbage in-garbage out phenomena. Essentially, there is no gatekeeper to ensure that the data collected is valid.

Blockchain provides a solution to this problem where consensus is used to determine the validity and accuracy of data collected with a tamper proof audit trail.

This value, coupled with its ability to promote cross-jurisdictional collaboration make it an essential technology to include in any strategic roadmap.
