Google's Polytechnic University Lecture
Google is hosting a talk on cryptocurrency and the blockchain technology in a bid to attract new and fresh talent. As part of its interesting strategy to lure talent in university recruitment events, the global firm will hold the talk that is scheduled for 8th March 2018 at the Polytechnic University of Milan in Italy. The lecture is titled “fundamentals and some recent innovations in crypto-currencies.” Google does not disclose the exact person who will deliver the lecture, but the description of the lecture suggests that a Googler who is a full-time staff at Google will give the talk.
Google's Lecture Covers Bitcoin & Blockchain DLT
The lecture that is part of a Google hiring campaign is bound to attract many job seekers. The corporate culture at Google is an attractive feature for job seekers and applicants in the technology sector. The firm’s culture has been featured in several films highlighting the way Google treats its staff and the benefits and rewards that come with being an employee at the global firm.
According to press materials released by Google, the talk will touch on:
- A review of the most popular cryptocurrencies
- How cryptocurrencies work
- The interesting innovation in cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology such as privacy, scripting and the reduction in the electricity requirements to save the environment.
The lecture will be followed by a description of Google internships and available jobs at the organization. The company will also give an overview of its interview and hiring process.
Google's Interest In Blockchain Technology
Google is currently expanding its web, and mobile platforms and the most recent development is the merging of Google Wallet and Android pay into Google pay. The lecture comes at an interesting phase, and maybe the search Engine giant might be on the lookout for young people who might have an interest in blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. However, this is a matter of speculation.
The current move by such a global company is influential as it might be a sign that the global firm is interested in integrating or building cryptocurrency protocols in its line of business and its services. Developers hoping to integrate crypto services into the ecosystem of Google may call on Google API on their apps and use it for payment functions with the existing platforms in the cryptocurrency industries.
The development of such systems will need technical knowledge. The expertise from young people who have fresh ideas on programming, design, and platform management might be just what is required to develop the systems. A New York Times report provided earlier in February show that several blockchain related courses have become part of many United States colleges and educational institutions. Institutions such as Carnegie Mellon, Duke, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Maryland, and Cornell are already providing graduate-level courses on cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.
