School's Out, Blockchain's In! Stanford Launches Blockchain Study Center

A group of computer scientists in the University of Stanford has founded the center for blockchain research, an institution that will be centered on the study of blockchain tech and its incidence on peoples lives, as it evolves in time. The University of Stanford partnered with different startups and foundations to cooperate through sponsorship for the first five years to really delve deep into the possibilities that blockchain offers in various fields.
The center will be led and integrated by known doctors and researchers in the field of computer sciences. Dan Boneh and David Mazières will be the leading scientists, and Alex Aiken, David Dill, John Mitchell, Tim Roughgarden will be integrating the operative team of the group.
Lately, there has been a rise in the number of universities that include blockchain courses for some careers: Duke, Carnegie Mellon, and Stanford have been pioneers in teaching blockchain to students. But in the research area, there has not been such a buzz. Sandford plans to pioneer the blockchain research field with the objective of studying the feasibility of using blockchain tech for different purposes and how people might adapt to it.
A survey carried out earlier this year by Gartner, an important data research company, found out that blockchain related applications are lagging behind compared to traditional application projects. In fact, most of the companies surveyed declared that they had no interest in building blockchain apps; this because finding good blockchain programmers can be a chore.
So the Center for Blockchain Research will also be focused on creating interactive and new ways of writing courses for students to really understand what the potential of blockchain is all about. And with the support of important established institutions like the Ethereum Foundation, Protocol Labs, the Interchain Foundation, OmiseGO, DFINITY Stiftung and PolyChain Capital we can be sure that this effort will yield interesting investigative results. the full press release can be read here.
