Jérôme Rodriguez (Lica): “With Echos.Life, a company can easily map its skills in a blockchain”

Assigning skills and valuing them according to the context in which they are expressed, all this certified by the blockchain, this is the outcome of a three-year project led by Lica and which culminates in late April.

JDN. You presented on the occasion of the Paris Blockchain Week Summit the project Echos.Liferesulting from the partnership between the Collective and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (Lica) and the software publisher myDid. En what does it consist of?

Jerome Gonzalez. The primary objective of Echos.Life is to enable organizations or an ecosystem to give value to acquired skills or lived experiences. These are characterized by badges that can be stored in a digital wallet. These badges will not only facilitate the recruitmentbut also provide access to associations, software and other resources specific to each ecosystem.

Secondly, Echos.life must make it possible to give value to skills that do not necessarily have any. For example, we are working on a project in Marseille in which we offer a sea trip to people who have obtained the coastal protection badge.

The goal is not to fall into a Chinese-style rating model, but to promote citizen behavior. The process for obtaining badges is still under discussion between Lica and a team of researchers.

Where does this project come from?

The Lica, of which I am the founder, has existed for four years and works on two major themes: the societal transformation of organizations and individuals and the development of systemic solutions through digital technology. We are one SCOP (Cooperative and Participatory Society, editor’s note) and we have partnered with myDid, specialized in the creation of digital identities, to develop a platform based on contribution/retribution.

How is this contribution/reward model structured, and what are its benefits?

In practice, having experience or training is a form of contribution that entitles you to a badge. And the latter only has the value that the ecosystem attributes to it. There will therefore be a repository of badges that will be set up by each ecosystem, with the support of Lica. Remuneration takes the form of the right to training or access to certain resources and tools.

Which sectors could benefit from this offer?

We target all types of communities, and for this we confront companies and universities with the challenges of blockchain and we offer them technological tools that meet their needs. The idea is also to highlight profiles without a diploma but who nevertheless have experience and skills. This is also valid for all types of organizations whose vocation is to plan the development of future skills, in a logic of job management by skills (GEPC, ​​editor’s note). This is the reason why this project was first built for large companies such as SNCF or Orange.

What is the interest for a company to integrate Echos.Life?

This is for the company to benefit from an easy-to-deploy technical model, based on win-win. For its part, the company will easily be able to map its skills. Opposite, the employee will have his own decentralized skills portfolio. For this, the company must contact the Lica, which will certify it and create its digital identity on the blockchain. Binance. Then, we will work on the badge repository, based on established skills, with graphics and criteria specific to each ecosystem.

We would love to thank the author of this post for this incredible material
