Digital Degree is an education collaborative platform that provides variety of online courses for the students. This is the most comprehensive curriculum available for the learning the fundamental as well as advance skills for blockchain and other platforms. The Digital Degree platform will offer students online courses with a clear and transparent blockchain-based reward system and achievement tracking.

We see Digital Degree as a unique tool for business to recruit tech talent and shape global education to its needs through smart-incentives. National government Job centers will be able to track the demand of skills without having to involve scrupulous report gatherings from businesses and also help jobless citizens by subsidising studies for skills on high demand. Think about it as Coursera and HackerRank merged together, powered by blockchain technology.

We are proposing a digital incentivized studying platform as a new tool to grow the global tech talent pool. Companies in need of tech talent will provide financial incentives to students willing to participate in training courses and to develop their skills. Companies seeking to get people familiar with newly introduced technology or services, will provide financial incentives to students willing to spend the time to learn and to try the company’s offerings.

Features:

  • Certified Courses

We are going to list variety of online courses on Digital Degree platform that allows user to learn various technologies and get certified in it.

  • No Age Limitation

Digital Degree offers different course for all people without any age limitation. We have divided courses from beginner to advance level for each and every age of people.

  • Blockchain Based Certificate

We provide certificate for all courses listed at Digital Degree. The professional profiles of all the candidate are verified and listed under the digital degree blockchain platform.

Philips Research Trying to Encourage Healthcare Industry to Utilize Blockchain

The widespread adoption of blockchain technology that has occurred over the past year has proven just how practical and far reaching the benefits of nascent technology is, but there has yet to be a widely used product that solves one of the world’s persisting issues: the coherence and security of healthcare data. Now, a group of researchers is trying to convince hospitals and healthcare providers that the solution to these problems is the blockchain. Issues Plaguing the Healthcare Industry There are multiple issues currently plaguing the healthcare industry, including the fragmentation and incoherence of data across multiple platforms, the persisting likelihood of data breaches, and the illegal use and monetization of patient’s private data. This past Summer, a cybersecurity breach at an Orlando-based Orthopedic Center exposed the private files of more than 19,000 patients, all due to a misconfigured software update that exposed the patients’ data on the internet. In a similar situation, healthcare company Nuance, experienced a system breach that led to a third party gaining full access to 45,000 patient records that were being stored on one of its medical transcription platforms. The breach, which was discovered in December of 2017, was so widespread that it warranted attention from the United States’ various law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, the DOJ, and the SEC. The agencies discovered that information including patient’s date of birth, full name, medical record number, diagnosis, care plans, and treatments, were all stolen by the nefarious actors. How Blockchain Could Fix the Healthcare Industry’s Problems Mark Hennessy, the lead researcher at Philips Research, recently spoke in an interview about how blockchain technology could increase the operational efficiency and security of healthcare provider’s data storage systems. Hennessey notes that Philips is developing what he describes as a “verifiable data exchange,” that isolates and secures data until it is needed for patient care. He also explains that the blockchain-based system would revolve around three main disciplines: anonymizing data, requesting data, and fulfilling requests. By using the blockchain, there can be a full and immutable trail of how data is used, who has accessed it, and who has seen it. “This is what we call ‘verifiable data exchange’ because you’ve got the actual audit trail of the request and the fulfillment of the request for data recorded,” Hennessy added. In the interview, Hennessey explained that one issue in implementing blockchain technology into the existing healthcare system is how trusting hospitals and providers are of the tech. “A lot of it comes down to trust and transparency. While you can trust a centralized server for storing the logs of each exchange, what we’re exploring is whether we can enhance that trust by decentralizing the storage of the logs between all the participants in a network.” Despite there being some skepticism surrounding the use of the blockchain, Hennessy also notes that in the case of a cyber-attack, the blockchain would help to better secure valuable data due to it separating and securely storing the data logs. “If you ever enter a situation where there might be a dispute, it’s possible for each of the stakeholders to have an independent-but-coordinated set of logs that will tell them what has happened in reality rather than trusting a third party or one of those stakeholders to store the logs in a tamper-resistant way,” he explained. Philips will be facing a plethora of startup companies that are currently competing to claim the healthcare blockchain space as their own, but it is unclear how long it will take for the industry to gain trust in, and to widely adopt, blockchain based data storage and transference technologies.
