Immutability for Prototype-based Knowledge Bases

Thesis type
  • Bachelor
Status Cancelled

Prototypes have been proposed recently as a new way to represent knowledge. Typically, one allow any kind of changes in a dataset. However, when a dataset is distributed with potentially malicious parties, it would be beneficial to make the dataset immutable and use some form of signature to prove authenticity. Moreover, making the data immutable has beneficial properties for caching. In the immutable scenario, the only way to make changes is by adding more prototypes. The student's task is to investigate the different options to make this immutable prototype store happen. This requires studying things like block chains and the internal git storage model. Further, the thesis can include some mechanisms to simulate some sort of mutability (e.g. by combining immutable and mutable parts).
