Blockchains (smart contracts, distributed ledgers) and rights management broadly construed are the themes of today's Spotlight Applications. Assigned to IBM, the first patent discloses techniques for implementing a contract analytic binding and provenance system. Assigned to Bacoor dApps (JP), the second application discloses techniques for managing an object including executing, by a smart contract implemented on a blockchain, an operation on a non-fungible token.
20220198590, "Contract analytic binding and provenance," assigned to IBM.
A mechanism is provided to implement a contract analytic binding and provenance system. The mechanism loads contract rules for an agreement between a plurality of contract parties and creates an analytic entry per rule to form a set of analytic entries, Each analytic entry is associated with an executable analytic function. The mechanism assigns each analytic entry a directed acyclic graph vertex. The mechanism confirms alignment between the contract rules and the set of analytic entries and stores the set of analytic entries in peer ledgers associated with the plurality of contract parties. The mechanism activates the set of analytic entries responsive to confirming provenance of the peer ledgers associated with the plurality of contract parties.
20220198447, "Target object management method, smart contract, and management device," assigned to Bacoor dApps Inc. (JP)
A method of managing an object according to the disclosure includes executing, by a smart contract implemented on a blockchain, an operation on a non-fungible token. The non-fungible token is identified by an identifier included in a code assigned to the object.
