How Columbia University and IBM are Exploring Data Transparency and Blockchain

Share this post:

In this day and age, data is at the center of many conversations. It only takes one quick glance at the news to see how living in a digitally-enabled era does not automatically mean living in a digitally trusted er.

It is also apparent that the economy is going through a major digital transformation with data at its core. What has become even more worrisome is the increasing lack of trust at the individual level and the fundamental need for transparency when it comes to data ownership.

Advancements in secure data transactions are giving control back to the individual, but at this specific point in time, it is more important than ever to embrace cutting edge technologies. Innovators must be free to easily research, test, implement and drive the creation of systems and tools for the future.

Enter the Columbia-IBM Center for Blockchain and Data Transparency Collaborations

In an effort to tackle the increasing need for data transparency and collaboration, Columbia University and IBM are partnering to create the Center for Blockchain and Data Transparency. The Center will drive cutting-edge research behind the technologies which are front and center in the future of data sharing, including blockchain and data encryption.

The Center will also function as a talent and innovation incubator, enabling work around new business models and services needed moving forward into the digital era.

By driving research around these new technologies and encouraging collaboration, the Center will bring together cross-disciplinary teams to tackle data transparency and data ownership.

Simplicity, speed and value for blockchain developers
