Beyond Blockchain: The Futurist Guide to Innovative Technologies
Last updated on 2020-04-07
About the Book
Technology have seen an extensive rise in innovation beyond what previous generations have thought possible. Due to this rise, certain implications have been involved. This course will inform you on technologies and tools such as the decentralized internet, or new and innovative research related to Biostatistical Computing. We will also be looking at the emerging field of Quantum Engineering. Throughout this book, you will be introduced to ethical topics as well, and a few brain teasers and exercises along the way!
In the future, many people have thought that privacy as we know it would be dead. However, this have all changed thanks to Blockchain. Blockchain didn't just allow for the succession of cryptocurrency but this whole movement of privacy, cryptography, and interpersonal communication to take place. This among other things lead to the dawn of a new age of computing. We also have technologies such as grid computing networks trying to cure diseases, eventual Quantum Computers and Quantum storage drives that will allow you to simulate universes in electronics that can fit in your pocket (better then rendering angry birds), and a new internet. Let me not just take you through these technologies, and programming concepts related to early divisions of its research, but let me introduce you to this dawn of the future.
Andrew is one of the most tech savvy software engineers I have met. His technical knowledge is both broad and deep, and I would trust him with the most complex programs to build and manage.

I had a great experience taking this course! Andrew is intelligent, innovative, and a great teacher. It definitely expanded my horizons and I will be on the lookout for more of his material in the future!
