Sony Develops System for Authentication, Sharing, and Rights Management Using Blockchain Technology: Sony Corporation and Sony Global Education (SGE) have developed a system that will apply block chain technology to the field of education. By using "technology that makes mutual use of educational achievements and activity records in an open and safe way," this reliable system centralizes the management of data from multiple educational institutions and makes it possible to record and reference educational data and digital transcripts.
" ... with this new system's services, users can take data about school grades and educational records, create a digital transcript, and safely provide it to a different educational institution. Additionally, this also makes it possible for evaluating organizations to analyze this data and records using artificial intelligence (AI) and use it to provide suggested improvements to educational institutions' curriculums and management."
The service is built on existing blockchain technology - IBM Blockchain. Sony is planning to explore this technology as a means to openly share educational data in 2018.
