Speaking to ANI on Sunday, CBSE Chief Information and Technology Officer Antriksh Johri said, “The blockchain implementation has been done by CBSE. Earlier, we introduced artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) for affiliate systems. Here, the data is linked and stored with cryptographic security so that it is immutable and traceable. ”
Johri further said, “This will serve as a one-stop source of truthful data for verifying students pursuing higher education or employment.” To create the ‘Academic (BlockChain) Documents’ software, CBSE collaborated with the Center of Excellence for Blockchain Technology at the National Informatics Center of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY).
Blockchain technology stores data in a distributed ledger with ownership of all participating stakeholders. Data is recorded in the chain based on consensus among stakeholders and replicated simultaneously to all locations in the distributed network of BlockChain nodes. This eliminates reliance on a third party for verification.
Data from the last three years from 2019 has been recorded there and other data from previous years will be uploaded gradually. In 2016, CBSE was the first to develop its own academic framework called “Parinam Manjusha”.
