Storing and Retrieval of Structured Data on Blockchain with BlockChi and Ethereum

Abstract: BlockChi creates an easy way of storing and retrieving data on the blockchain. It is a technology that solves some of the current limitations of blockchain storage and public blockchain networks that have transaction payload support. It allows parties to author, publish, extend and access data records in a decentralized, immutable and secure manner, supports complex data types, such as structured data and media, supports metadata to allow anonymously, identified or trusted publishing. BlockChi format is compatible with various blockchain networks. Data is presented as a JSON object, encoded in hexadecimal format and contained in the payload of blockchain transaction(s). There is an Ethereum implementation – BlockChiEth, which is a JavaScript class that allows frontend and backend applications (DAPPs) to interact with Ethereum blockchain.

Cryptocurrency Plugin for WordPress

Cryptocurrency All-in-One is a project of mine that that I started in 2016. My idea back then was to help making cryptocurrencies more popular. I liked the whole idea of decentralized currencies and the blockchain technology. But back then cryptocurrencies lacked the high level tools for developers to integrate them easily into real-life projects. I decided to help web developers and start-up owners to adopt Bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies by providing a free and simple to use WordPress plugin and that was how Cryptocurrency All-in-One came into existence. I submitted the first version to the WordPress.org repository in August 2016.

VisagiSMile – Dental Software for Digital Smile Design

Abstract: For achieving an optimal esthetic result from a dental treatment we need to create a suitable smile design that creates a perception which fulfills the esthetic expectations of the patient. It is also important that the teeth proportions to be correctly diagnosed and designed before an irreversible restorative dental procedure to be done.

Excellent quality digital smile design software products exist on the market. However these solutions do not apply in its fullness the visagism concept which produces a smile design in relation to the facial type and personality of the patient which is perceived as more harmonious. The visagism concept has been recently applied in the dental software “VisagiSMile” which helps clinicians to personalize and improve smile designs.

VisagiSMile is a software that automates the process of creating personalized digital smile design. VisagiSMile is a multiplatform web application for aesthetic dentistry which does not require installation, but only a simple registration process to get started. All cases and data are stored on a server to allow dentists to work on different devices and platforms – computers, tablets and smartphones. The research on the visagism concept is an ongoing process which constantly changes the requirements for the software. With the ongoing development of the software as an agile web application new versions are released every few weeks. Future plans include improvement of the accuracy of algorithms and of the teeth designs. Together with the product development, VisagiSMile’s user base also grows with over 1000 currently registered dentists.

Software Application for Smile Design Automation Using the Visagism Theory

Abstract: The visagism concept in dentistry tries to achieve the most appropriate smile design for every individual patient. The design is based on facial analysis, the patient’s personality and their preferences, and is calculated and visualized as a teeth configuration. The paper presents VisagiSMile — aesthetic dentistry software which automates the theory of dental visagism. The goal of VisagiSMile is to automate this process of creating aesthetic cases and to eliminate the human factor from the analysis. Based on innovative data mining approach, the software learns to classify patients’ faces correctly and then makes the necessary calculations to produce harmonious teeth configuration which can be further adjusted.
