Sony Education and Testing Platform
is looking to take advantage of a technology named Blockchain. Blockchain is a database that keeps a nonstop growing list of data records. The company plans to build a centralized stage for educational assessment and testing scores. The Global Education division of the company has developed technology that uses Blockchain to maintain educational data that can be securely shared with other devices and third parties.
The goal is to make this a platform for sharing qualifications and educational history. This press release
highlights their goals.
"For example, after taking an examination to demonstrate his or her academic proficiency level, an individual could direct the testing organization to share the test results with one or more third-party evaluating organizations. This would be a first if implemented on a system-wide basis."
This technology can be useful for medical care, environment, energy, and any other area outside education.
