In the fourth and final part on this series about the future of blockchain, Jill Richard explores the new frontier of a transformed mobility ecosystem. This new frontier that could accelerate the development of autonomous driving technology, is predicated with a firehose of data.
How can we make blockchain more consumable? First, we need to identify and deal with the challenges that limit blockchain mainstream adoption. We talked to Matthew Spoke, CEO of Nuco and a founding member of the Enterprise Ethereum Foundation about the dangers of blockchain fragmentation, how Aion may help bridge these gaps in the industry, and how we can bring blockchain into the mainstream.
Women are underrepresented in the tech sector —myth or reality? In addition to the Women in Tech survey, we also launched a diversity series aimed at bringing the most inspirational and powerful women in the tech scene to your attention. Today, we’d like you to meet Barbara Mellish, Director of the Centre for Citizenship Enterprise and Governance.
A new, evolving automotive ecosystem is turning car-generated data into valuable products and services. In part three of this series, Jill Richmond explains how the self-driving ecosystem is poised to have a huge impact not only on the new ride-sharing environment, but also on the technical and architectural enablers within the automotive industry.
Blockchain has the ability to transform our daily lives along multiple verticals. We talked with Max Kordek, co-founder and president of the Lisk Foundation, about Lisk, the importance of open source, and how we can make blockchain more accessible and relevant to the mainstream.
The future of autonomous driving is no longer a theoretical point in the distance. It’s here. And none of this would be possible without the advent of blockchain technology. In part two of this series, Jill Richman explains how cars now generate data about how they are used, where they are located, and who is behind the wheel.
The future of autonomous driving is no longer a theoretical point in the distance. It’s here. And none of this would be possible without the advent of blockchain technology. In part one of this series, Jill Richmond explores the present and future of blockchain disruption for the automobile industry.
What comes to your mind when you hear the word Java? How about blockchain, DevOps and microservices? If you want to learn about emerging technologies or dive deeper into topics you’re already familiar with (I’m looking at you Java 9), what better way to do that than to go straight to the source? Open the magazine and allow the experts to shower you with information!
Is the blockchain just a hype? Can it offer an exponential benefit above other existing technologies? It’s safe to say that blockchain is not going away, so people working in tech should have (at least) a base-level understanding of how this technology works. This infographic sums up the findings on blockchain’s importance and future.
We’ve been so focused on the benefits blockchain has on the finance sector that we’ve forgotten about the legal industry. Enter the Accord Project, the world’s first consortium for smart legal contracts. It’s worth your attention because it seems to be the place where legal and tech come together. We invited Peter Hunn and Houman Shadab, founders of Clause.io to tell us more about the Accord Project and the aim of this initiative.
With what is touted as the next ‘war for talent’, the skill shortage in the area of blockchain technology does not seem to tally with the burgeoning number of startups and established businesses offering solutions in bitcoin and blockchain. Mukund Krishna, CEO and founder of Suyati Technologies explains how this technology finds itself useful in removing corruption and providing transparency and accountability.
It’s safe to say that blockchain is not going away, so people working in tech should have (at least) a base-level understanding of how this technology works. In the final part of our interview series, we dissect the IMF’s piece The Internet of Trust and discuss the lessons the IT world can learn from the blockchain technology.
Setting the course for a world without middlemen? 9 Blockchain influencers weigh in on this possibility
Will blockchain eliminate the middleman? Can it do that? Should it do that? These are just a few questions that hover over the technology behind Bitcoin. In the third part of our interview series, our nine experts talk about the connection between blockchain and the rise in cyber attacks and the elimination of the middlemen.
Douglas Adams got it all wrong, it seems. The answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything is not 42 — it’s blockchain, some will argue. Can the technology behind Bitcoin transform the world or should we take it with a grain of salt? We invited eight blockchain influencers to weigh in on its value and look beyond the hype.
