3. Utilization of Blockchain Technology
So how long will it take for blockchain technology to become widely used in our society? Experts predict that it will take more than five years for blockchain technology to peak in most industries. Gartner, a U.S. IT market research and consulting firm, said in its 2017 Blockchain Heap Cycle report that the market and public interest in blockchain-related technologies such as distributed ledgers, virtual currency wallets and consensus algorithms are at its peak. In addition, most IT consulting agencies predict that blockchain technology will reach the peak of innovation in two to three years, and be commercialized in five to 10 years, so that stable services can be delivered around 2025. Among the areas where blockchain technology can be used especially effectively are financial areas such as banks and investment services, health care including insurance and health care, logistics and distribution sectors and public services.

Biggest Security Concerns For Driverless Cars

Driverless cars are coming to a road near you, whether you believe it or not. Collision avoidance and navigation are no longer the biggest issues, either. When discussing safety issues, the initial focus was potential technical limitations and accidents caused by poor decision making from the autonomous car. Nowadays, the biggest safety issue is car-hacking.

Cars are now becoming wifi hotspots. They are becoming more equipped with connected devices to improve driver-safety and make the vehicles more autonomous. Soon, fully autonomous vehicles will be on our roads, and they will be vulnerable to data theft and hacking. Communications and entertainment systems are most vulnerable to attack. From here hackers could access the electronic control units (ECUs) and controller-area-network (CAN) bus, which control critical systems like braking and electric steering.
