"Blockchain" is the word on everyone's lips in the tech industry, with vendors pushing it as a solution for everything from banking and finance to retail and apparel. "We're going to continue to see tech vendors trying to push blockchain as the solution to problems that may exist," said Rebecca Wettemann, VP of research at Nucleus Research. However, blockchain may not be "a privacy-effective or cost-effective solution" for all of them. Product research is one area where blockchain does appear to show promise.

Streamlining the Ledger Process

My introduction to blockchain technology came through cryptocurrency, beginning with Bitcoin. One aspect that always bothered me was the apparent computational intensity of recording the transactions. I cannot see how such a network could avoid severe processing bottlenecks as it scales, making it impractical for something that is supposed to have large numbers of users. I'm curious what could be done to streamline the process?

How do you feel about accidents that occur when self-driving vehicles are being tested?
Self-driving vehicles should be banned -- one death is one too many.
Autonomous vehicles could save thousands of lives -- the tests should continue.
Companies with bad safety records should have to stop testing.
Accidents happen -- we should investigate and learn from them.
The tests are pointless -- most people will never trust software and sensors.
Most injuries and fatalities in self-driving auto tests are due to human error.
